here is a pic from us going across during SLAP 2020, we are going the opposite way as Steve. I cant get the video to D/L from FB, my buddy posted it or I'd share it here.....

Sure WISH I was in that water this second, and out riding ! Thanks for the photo.

Somebody needs to start organizing soon for a rally to happen and it can't be me fo the rest of this year as I'm up to my ears with family stuff and projects. It'd be great if we could close this thread and start a fresh one.

I thought we agreed you need a newer boat......








On a serious note: I will likely be over there in OCT, somewhere between the 2nd to the 18th. I dont want to be the head shed for this event, but I will help out if someone needs some logistic help. Jax, you up for the challenge?

I get the feeling that some folks have waited for me to step back in and I'll help with what I can by phone but the bottom line is that I'm not going to be an organizer, co-organizer, and with current plans probably not a participant.

This Fall I should either still be neck deep with family stuff or on my boat finally sailing somewhere between the ICW, Keys, and Bahamas. Gotta have a goal.

Thinking retirement would be all kicking back and riding, my friend? LOL - My current reality is a broken water pipe and other major issues 2 days after moving into a new house. Siding needs to come off outside to replace the soaked OSB. This is after all that went into months of fixing & selling the previous place, finding this one, the move, and you know how that all goes. My other half is VERY upset.


Meanwhile we have the kitchen gutted in the daughters' 1901 row house in Balmo, getting ready to sell it and move her too:


Just did a bathroom at the son's house too and now there's the grand daughter, so nothing has been happening on the sailboat and I'm threatening to re-name it Tar Baby. Touch one thing and you know the rest.

This too shall pass. ;)
I shoulda put this in the Rant thread but your comment was here. Let's get the thread back to talk about a motorcycle rally.

WOWEE Bob!! I feel your pain Sir. Please follow my advice and if you have ANY contractor do the work, watch them like a hawk!! My dad used to love working on doing home remodels and repairs. Now he is 80 and hates it. Good luck getting your new home dialed in.

Now back to the rally. Looks like someone will have to step up and take over. Is it going to be in the same location or a different one?

Hey guys.... a thought...

My buddy and I will be heading to the HUB (In Arkansas) probably the first half of October. Whether there is a organized 'get together' or not. Once we have it ironed out I will be happy to post up when we will be in the area at the HUB. Anyone wanting to join is completely welcome to show up... Im not planing anything as an organized "Rally", just show up and ride. The only thing he and I will plan is what date (what we are doing). Maybe we can get a few folks out, go ride, and BS around the camp fire.

Anyone interested in showing up and riding ?

* Im not planing a Rally
* Im not organizing anything
* No planed anything
* Just show up and have a BLAST !
* No planed dinner
* Im not planning routes for people, Etc... LOL (Ive had people expecting me to hand them 20 different versions of routes of the area in the past when I organized)


***If anyone steps up and wants to organize a real rally at the HUB, I will NOT promote this post in this thread. I would rather help or promote a real organized get together. Im only posting this up because I cant wait to go ride and its always better with other folks.....

And looking forward to taking a look at that new Tenere 700 in the wild ! LOL

Any who, if you're at all interested in getting some great riding in, BS'ing around the camp fire, and talking motorcycles, that's what we will be doing..... post up and let "everyone" know.

By the way, I DON'T HAVE A SET DATE THIS SECOND. Ill post up as soon as we nail it down... It will probably be the first or second weekend in October.

Thanks !

I hate to say it, but as we roll into July, looking around it getting challenging to think October would even be realistic.

No further commentary from me regarding the the merits on why that observation is hitting me.


2020 sucks!!!
