    LDComfort shirt. It really did help with the hot ride home Sunday to northeast Arkansas.
    And the high output LED bulbs for my MotoLights.

    We saw a bike riding around the fairgrounds on the Thursday or Friday night, with it's wheels glowing neon green. That looked really sharp and difficult to not see. Couldn't find any vendors selling any such equipment. Does anyone know who sells and installs this type of kit? Sorry, no pictures.

    Unhappy Who was selling the stamped letter rings?

    I have a question to anyone who remembers:

    There was a vendor (a guy with a beard and a baseball cap) who had a small display set up indoors, where he was selling a variety of rings. He would personalize them with hand stamped lettering and symbols. He was very exacting about the fit and very reasonable about the price. I paid him in cash, did not take a card or a receipt and thusly, here is my tale of woe.

    I bought the ring to wear in place of my wedding ring while doing things like working on the bike, household projects, etc. It is high quality. It fits great and looks great. When I got home, my wife not only really liked the idea, she really likes the ring. And of course, she now wants one too, for the same purpose of when she would be doing something whare she doesn't want to damage or endanger her diamond ring.

    Only I don't have the information to contact the vendor. Does anybody out there have any information on him?

    Did you check the list of vendors to see if anything "rings" a bell?
    http://www.bmwmoa.org/rally12/local_...y_vendors_list

    And on a personal note... if I brought home a ring to "replace" my wedding ring when I was out "doing stuff".... I'm just Say'in.

    Gadget, nah!

    Ice cream is one of the three food groups, along with pizza and beer.

    Yes. I went through the list and he must have been a late addition. (The vendor list on the web is current only through 01 Jun.) The girls at BMW MOA were very helpful. They sent me here.

    (And I have many nicks and scars in the soft metal of my wedding ring from the KIND OF THINGS I DO, that I would prefer NOT to have.)






    I DID FIND OUT WHO THE VENDOR IS!!!!!!

    My Kermit chair broke and they gave me a new piece from one of their chairs on the spot! I thank them so much! I LOVE the chair and have had it for many years. If it happens again, I will just glue and clamp it (which is what I was expecting them to tell me), but as i was at the rally and didn't have the glue or clamps, it sure was nice to use the chair for the rest of the rally!

    Thank YOU KERMIT CHAIR Company!!

    Long Distance Shorts (only a bit better than my previous solution, but well worth it)
    P3 Photon Blasters
    A 2nd pair of outseam Lee Parks summer gloves (sooooo comfy!)

    What I didn't buy AT the rally but subsequently ordered, was Richa Spirit jacket and pants. I only came across them at 3:30 Saturday afternoon, didn't know anything about Richa, and felt uncomfortable spending big bucks with so little info. I haven't received them yet but very much looking forward to receiving them.

    The vendor with the cool side lighting on the wheels is Lunasee.com. We saw his table in one of the buildings, can't remember which one. Looked really interesting, but we had already blown enough $$ on other goodies. I got some Clearwaters, Skene brake lights, and a headlight guard for my GS. The hubby got the Skenes and headlight guard too.

    Thank you. Maybe not this year, but in the future. That bike was impossible to not notice in the dark.
