I !!might!! make this rally (being "Big Oil's" punk/Gopher everything is always subject to change) but I see the window opening, so who-all will be there?, I am seriously considering riding the R75/5 and I have not ridden to a rally in MANY years!

I would really like to make the "festival of fives" but another rally is the same weekend in Dallas and I am commited HARD to that one (a friend is riding in from Memphis on his Brit-Cafe-bike).

That looks like fun. Work

That looks like fun. Work travel permitting, I am going to Vech's the next weekend and it would be difficult for me to do both .

Bruce - I went to Vech's

Bruce -

I went to Vech's rally a couple of years ago...I'm glad I did. I've got too much going on this year that's up in the air, so not sure I could make it. In 2009, I had a riding partner on his R60/2, but he developed engine trouble (shedding metal off of his lifter surfaces) and the bike has been down ever since. It was nice having a wingman on the trip with our old bikes.

I'll go again one of these years.

I live in Bruce's world (I'm just WAY! farther down the food chain), I was thinking about trying to make it to Vech's rally but the R2 will not be ready so I'm headed for Llano.

Baytown sure sounds interesting, I've never had a rally that close (I can be in Baytown in about 20 minutes from Home).
