I hear you. I want to make it to there, and probably will even if there is no official gathering. I am sure to have a great ride either way. And oh so much quieter now that I am sporting stock pipes!
What is the company that manufactures those skins you had on your bike last year? I have some heavy vinyl stuff from 3M, but its adhesive, and once removed must be replaced. And I got the map thing downloaded, and have included the states I have ridden in, but I am having a time getting the software to allow me to add it to my signature.
