We sure will. I need to get out and ride a little more before the trip, have not been on the bike since last summer. Shop had it replacing base gasket then I had my rims de-chromed and powdercoated. Shop lost 2 out of 3 mechanics right after giving them the bike and was backed up until this past month.

It feels completely different riding it being 116lbs lighter now. Feels faster as well, probably is since it's not carrying so much weight anymore. I thought my shop messed up my clutch because it feels stiffer now but It's actually because I lost some muscle mass.

If you haven't noticed yet, Mick is not on the forum any longer. A couple weeks ago he was still planning to attend. His surgery went well, but he will be cast for another month, so can't ride and also can't tie knots, so no fishing. I do not think he is going to attend now. We'll see. I did not ask about his reserved site.

My surgery went OK as far as I can tell at this point. I think I am going. Brian, Paul, Mike and Kelley sounded committed (or should be ). JoeBob, You in?
Wondered if anyone else is planning to show, several people chimed in over the winter, but no one has posted here recently.

My procedure yesterday went well, should be nothing preventing me from this gathering!

Unless something happens I plan to be there. Bike is back. Been out twice with no issues. I will be upstate NY the weekend before for memorial day weekend and leaving from there to meet with Joe bobber to ride the rest of the way together to the meet up.
