Not for sure which day or time yet . I know a few of ya said you would like to meet him . This is your chance . I will keep ya posted as to when later this week. Friday evening or Saturday . Planning a 24 notice RTE most likely will be impossible . But thinking one may be nice to do . Close to Marshfield or on his way back out of Wi . I just gotta play it by ear till he is rolling out of Texas at min. :thumbup:

As long as you guys are finished playing in the snow for the time being,,,, I expect...HOPE to be real darn close to Marshfield Friday evening ( 2661 miles). Departing Maryland Wed. morning, be within a couple of hundred miles of Beaumont Texas wed. nite. Pick up his toy Thursday morning. Head North until I either start seeing snow or a Darth Vader helmet. If anyone can recommend a safe cheap hotel somewhere near the halfway point between Beaumont and Marshfield, appreciate it. Normally I don't worry too much, but would hate to have to unload his toy and bring it in the hotel room with me.
Planning to rest up with an over niter in Marshfield and head out sometime Saturday.
Tentatively stopping in someplace called Franklin Ohio. another member has asked for help transporting his KZ440 to his sisters house in Pennsylvania.
Have to be back on evenings by Tuesday

We certainly wouldn't want Rail to have any problems with it so please test it well.

I am sure Rail would approve any of these QC tests that you can accomplish before he received it.

Will a CT fit?
Does it wheelie?
Can stoppies be done?
Fuel capacity?
How long will it run with no oil?
How much stuff can you load on the luggage rack?
Weight capacity?


Any other ideas?

Well

l you have to test Top speed.....

How many cars will it jump?

How much faster can "We" make it go?.......

Will it go faster if we make it lighter by removing not needed parts?

Will a Goldwing seat fit?

Pack your rain gear

Rain all week and barely 50 for highs all week, but of course still about freezing at night

Enjoy your Wisconsin adventure

I think you will be fine. I heard Randy has informed the county crews in seven counties to be sure to plow if it snows and salt heavily so that a friend from Maryland can make it here. He says he can talk anyone into or out of anything given time and motive.

Meesh and I stayed in that $35 motel. Nice place. We had to share the room with 6 migrant fruit pickers. Once they passed out at 10PM with their cervesas, it was quiet till 4 AM, till they had to hit the fields.....LOL

The little swimming pool was filled with these large Gold & White colored fish....LOL
