    WI Guzzi??
    Never heard of it..

    Hell, I pre-registered for it in January..

    Roy said there's a good chance you'll be attending?? You'll have a good time, and as JDiaz said not that long ago, "Paper would skip his own wedding to go to this rally."
    Luckily I'm not getting married this weekend, so there's no need to test that theory..
    I'll be down in the woods a little ways, as I'm sleeping in a hammock.. The clan will be camped up on top of the hill, by the back fence..
    Great rally of 250-300!! Very relaxed, great food, great beers, great people!

    Gathering spot.. Luckily they give you a glass at registration and point to the trailer.. Don't drink the rally pin inside the cup.. (and for those not in the know, beer's included in the very inexpensive rally fee)



    It's a rough crowd..



    That photo makes me laugh.. Guzzi rally.. KLR, ST1100, Tiger, Hyosung, and a BMW.. There's Guzzi's there, though..

    Weird how that happens!!
    I just finished packing my Guzzi and oddly enough it looks just like a 03' Speed Triple.

    Not required but sometimes handy in the heat. I also remember a few cold weekends at the Guzzi rally.

    I also remember scraping frost off my seat at the Dells rally, too..

    What are you riding to the Guzzi?
    I'm torn between the RT and the MIGHTY C650GT

    I'm at the rally now.
    I rode my Speed Triple so Roy wouldn't whine at me about fuel capacity.

    Scott,
    How's the location for hanging?? I've never been at the rally since I've been hammocking so I've only seen it in "ground dweller" eye mode..

    There is lots of nice trees close together to hang a hammock and it has been much cooler in the woods compared to camping in the open field near rally central. Note you can not burn a fire in the woods. see you there.
