Revised 04.17.2004

These are the events that we plan to do for 2004. Most are solid and I put a question mark next to the ones that we are still working on. We hope to get to see a lot of you on the road this year. Its always a lot of fun. We may add some of the smaller events so that we can show off our VTX Chopper and our GL1800 Gold Wing painted with the Nicky Hayden RC-51 paint scheme.

Busy schedule

Hal,

I'm planning to attend Americade (?) and the Hoot for sure, so I know I'll see you at the Hoot at least. If everything continues to go well on my recovery from the neck surgery, this could end up being one of my "ridingest" years yet.

Wishing you and the family the best in 2004!!!

We have plans for 5 1/2 of them now. 2100 miles one way to Wing Ding. Thats the 1/2. 1/2 of me says I am going, the other 1/2 says thats a long ways to go for a week or less.

I stand corrected. I had been told 2100. I thought it was closer to 1800. Come to find out it is only 1423. That may change things.

Hal

How about posting a list of what kind of specials at which show so I can make my plans. :D

Seriously have had our reservations for the Hona Homecoming since last July so will be able to look you up at least once this summer.

I'll try to keep the card under wraps till then.

Daytona for me...

I am trying to get to the first weekend of Daytona. Now I just have to find me a place to rest. I hate to make reservations due to the fact I may not be able to make it due to work obligations. Looks forward to seeing you once again there Hal. Maybe be able to attend some of the others.

Hal,
Wing Ding is not being held in Dallas, it IS being held in Grapevine, Texas. There is at least one city between the two. :wink:

I know but if I said Grapevine a whole bunch of people would be asking where is Grapevine? So at least Dallas gets them into the right area.

P.S. I just edited it for you. Are there really any Grapevines in Grapevine?

Grapevines in Grapevine (TEXAS)

Hal,
Actually there are. There are a couple of local vinyards that produce wine IN Grapevine and a few more around the area. If you go south into the hill country there are numerous vinyards. As for quality of their wines....I'm no real judge of that, but they do seem to sell quite a bit of it.
Thw Orange Bandits will see you at WingDing for sure and who knows where else this year.

Hal,

I know you can't be everywhere, but it's too bad you can't make CA-1R's Rally in the Valley at Mesquite, NV. I think Wingstuff was the only vendor I saw there last time. A little competition can be a good thing, from a buyer's perspective, anyway!

Thanks for everything, anyway!
