I'm very interested in both Mark, but not sure what my obligations at home are as yet.
I'm pretty sure I can do at least one. :) I'll be watching these & let you know as the dates get closer.

I'd like attend the Ramble in May. I promise not to crash this time!
I'm all healed and bike's almost like new. By May I'll have upgraded
the suspension ( which contributed to my get-off ).

These are rides that I am "organizing" barb...

...that being said, I probably won't be able to make NAFO or California this coming year as I do some extended trips with Louanne. She won't be on these rides that I have listed above as they tend to be at a more, uh, spirited pace.

Oh man Mark...this is sooo tough. But after this past Hooterville get together...I'm not sure...I'm just not sure I could deal with myself if I ever decided to miss the next one. Please count me in. Not sure what was better; the roads to ride or the great people I rode with.

We'll miss you at NAFO this year wheatie, but I get it with the distances involved. :(

Do let me know if you get close to the Northern Rockies though.

Since I have felt better the last 3 days than I have for the last 18 months, you can definitely put me down for a possible "maybe" for both rides. ;)

Missed the ramble last year and hope to make this time. I will put it on the various calendars now. Thanks for the heads up so far in advance!

Count me in for both hopefully, although I'll have to check son's football schedule before I know for sure on Hooterville.

Are there specific routes on the ramble or just go exploring?

As much as I want to participate in these antics, My PO says I can't associate with people from Illinoise. Something to do with Karl and his VW...


I think fornication with her fits in somewhere

I'd think versa vise, Lambert's has been around since 1913. My Uncle took me there in 1957 in his brand new '57 Chevy convertible.
