I'm already packed!!! I leave next Wednesday. Its going to be a long hard 317 mile ride. I may have to stop for gas.
The Rally is happening soon when I order my new tires and visit Clarence, Ia to have my buddy Gary install the new tires to my rims. Next step is looking for Way points to download to the GPS in the 100 mile radius around the Rally site.
When the active viewing of the RALLY FORUM is going up and up and up...
a month ago it was 4 or 8 today it was 38.........
...when you're deciding which coat to wear
...I wash my bike.

When that really stiff new tire won't go on, and after much colorful language, and sweat, you discover it's a 16" tire and your rim is 17" -don't laugh- and it's too late to get another shipped...
that box of oil filters you'd had for a while now only contains dirty old spark plugs.

I know it is getting close to rally time when I have a pinhole leak in my front brake hose! Same hose that was replaced a year and a half ago. That time, it was the Dells Rally that I missed...
It's at the dealer as we speak. I'm optimistic I'll only be a day or so late to the ROK rally. Then, on to the MOA!
Thanks (in advance) to Judson Cycle, my local dealer. They're working so I can ride!
Edit: It's done! I'm leaving today for my ROK/MOA/American Heritage Ride/RA extravaganza!

When you discover the front fork seals leaking....while you're installing the new J&M comm system that was sent with a mount braket that dosen't work....and you still have to pack the rest of the bike....

Sometimes,nothing is a real cool hand.
It must be the last minute....
