I've just confirmed the date with the Days Hotel in La Crosse WI and the 2012 version of the Central FJR Owners Rally will be Sept. 13-15.

Details to follow as they become available. Still looking for volunteers to help out with the pre-rally tasks.

Yes, Rick should know best be he still f'd up on the original post :glare: Sept. 13-15 ARE the dates.

One of the pit falls of FB is that your post are not editable so now the wrong dates are there 'til the end of time or FB which ever comes first :huh:

Humm... going to have to check the vacation schedule. Perhaps I can get Mrs. Bug to join me, I sure had a blast riding those sweet alphabet roads a few years back. This is a great FJR event for anyone thinking about attending.

Yo Airboss, how about bringing the Duc for a demo ride :o

A lack of crashes would be a most welcome change.
When in doubt, Gas it.

This event was a great time last year.
I hope to return in '12.
The Location and riders are fantastic!
And the rally was a blast.
Hmmm........
I hope I can make it.

Doug, you get Mrs. Bug to tag along. I'll make the FJR available for her.

I'll just have to suffer on the Duc.

I quess this year is as good as any other to make my first CFO. So to celebrate my good fortune, I'll be bringing the Boss along with (this way I can leave her to pick up the tab). Also a good way for her to meet some of the folks that are the reason why she catches me laughing at the computer when on the forum. :lol:
