Well no clap of thunder to send off the Rally Rallye riders but a steady drizzle just to keep thing interesting. No big surprises in the AM rally pack but I did give them an interesting rally towel ;)

Rally towel :huh:

It needs to be returned in one piece so that lead to some interesting packing ideas.

Riders ready for departure.

Did TriggerT head out...or is he sitting next to you in the bar?:rolleyes:

The guy turns into a little quivering pool of mush just at the thought of rain... :lol:

I gotta get my CBA Rally going.. this looks like WAY fun stuff!

Another comment - LOVE the towel idea!

I wouldn't change a fucking thing; I've lived hard, played hard, and I ain't done yet. I've paid some severe penalties along the way, but the rewards have been so much greater; even if for just have participating in the game of life with utmost abandon. It's not who rides the furthest in a day, but rather in a lifetime. CBA member #1, IBA #31845 and very proud of both.

I had a great time on the rally, and did ride through almost any rain. (FU Wheaton) I did enjoy some of the best roads in WI, but also some nasty gravel, and even a little wet grass riding.

Thanks again to Rick for putting the rally together.

On a complete side note, I managed another just under 400 mile rally ride, on a car tire, and as anyone who is reading this can confirm, the world had not ended just yet.

I'm Finding Something To Find.

FU2 Trigger...Glad you had a good time and didn't wussy out, you little weenie, and hang out at the bar all day. Thanks to Rick for putting on the shindig.

Edit: This post sounds alot harsher than I meant to be. TriggerT and I are buds just joshing each other, but this sounds over the top..sorry about that.
