I am planning a trip up there on the 9-10 of November....weather permitting. If the weather is bad, then the next weekend is our back-up.

I'll have to play it by ear. (****, this wedding ring gets heavy sometimes!) However, I can load the Duc in the back of my Sport Trac and follow you up, so no need to reserve space on the trailer. But I've heard wonderful tales about the roads in AR, and I'd love to sample them on a nice ride.

I just spoke with Marty, he's in Washington DC and won't be back until later next week.

I think the weekend he was aiming for is the weekend BEFORE Thanksgiving.

Yes the weekedend before Thanksgiving, Geek, Fasail, reserved, one spot left. I am in Ft Lauderdale right now will see everyone on the next SMR, If I surrive this. http://www.msnbc.com/modules/slideshow/hurricane_990913/images/990913_hurricane.jpg

Hope yer keepin' dry Marty. Lookin forward to seeing your "ground zero" photos from Manhatten.. wowzers.

I've got to "unshotgun" myself. I'm booked that weekend on a "honey-do" (doh!).

If there's not enough interest, make it a weekend after thanksgiving and I'm in.

Not sure which radar/forecast you're looking at Marty, but it looks all clear Friday through Monday.

I'm still trying to convince a co-worker to load his 7R and my F4 into his truck for a trip up on Saturday.

:eek: Well, not Monday. :eek:

November 13th, 2001, 02:56 PM
wel the weather channel last night had that area covered in green for sat, sun, and monday, Im still game if any one else is, I have the truck and trailer, still game for leaving friday, but I need to be back in Dallas by 3p. any takers?

November 13th, 2001, 03:06 PM
I would like to go to AR but I'll be in Chicago... It will be sooooo **** cold there! :eek:

Of course, I'll be putting a lot of anti-freeze into my system at the wedding reception. tongue.gif

I've been called away on an emergency mission to New Orleans this weekend. (Actually, one of my wife's best friends decided to tie the knot, and we just received word of the event today.) So no AR for me this weekend.

Hey, and I found a replacement headlight on ebay! New those things cost $350. I picked one up for $75! Unbelieveable. The sellers have lots of Duc and GSXR parts. Check out www.rightontrack.com. (http://www.rightontrack.com.)

Marty was checking the Florida radar :D Sorry dude I have to go work on my cuzn's ranch, have a big hunting/target shooting week coming up and have to go fix the range and upgrade the deer stand or no free hunting for me, so I'm taking Friday off, that way I can be back in time for the SMR.

Bright side is, if you ride closer to Dallas, you'll only have to tow the duck a few miles to get it back in the garage
