After they dry I’ll then spray them down with NIKWAX ‘TX.DIRECT SPRAY-ON’ to make them better than new. Also going to hit the boots with some mink oil.



I hate riding wet and it is hard not to get dumped on during a forum gathering this time of year.


Is there a riding bubble you can use to keep the bike dry too?

Wish I could make it. Pray for health XLF. The most precious of things.

I'm almost definitely not going to make it this year. The big project at work that I've been chipping away at since October has been delayed a few times in the last couple of months. It should be done this weekend, but that's only if everything goes perfectly.

So, there's a very slim chance I might make it, but don't expect me.

Joe, prayers sent, hang in there!
Fred, It always seems to be something doesn’t it? Fingers crossed.
Greg, really looking forward to it, need to mount the new drivebelt, packing the old one as a “just in case”, and explore my mystery electrical. Cleared all my codes the other day, none had returned and had a good charge coming into the battery. Couple days later codes are back and low battery. Charged bike cleared codes ran 50 miles and battery showing 13.2, hard to track down them damn intermittent issues!!!

Looks like we will be headed out a little earlier than expected. We should be arriving at the Inn around 9-10ish on Thursday morning.

The forecast for here (N.E. Indiana) is looking better too. I hope to finish up a job I am on in time to come on Thursday. It all depends on the weather here over the next week!

Not saying I'm wishing for rain, but I have to say, it would be very odd if it didn't rain on at some point for one of these get togethers. Worst ride ever was still Mike, Higgy, and I coming back from the hospital after Kribit's off on the Snake (many moons ago now). The fact that the three of us made it back to camp that night without our own incident, pure luck.

But, I'll hope for clear skies and take whatever comes!!

I'm planning on bringing my orange 1200R. It needs new tires put on it. I was struggling the other night to break the bead on the old Commanders. I was tired and beat, so I'm hoping over the weekend, after some rest, it'll go smoother. I have spare wheels to put the tires on if it comes to that.
