    Rally soon to happen indications

    The Rally is happening soon when I order my new tires and visit Clarence, Ia to have my buddy Gary install the new tires to my rims. Next step is looking for Way points to download to the GPS in the 100 mile radius around the Rally site.

    When that really stiff new tire won't go on, and after much colorful language, and sweat, you discover it's a 16" tire and your rim is 17" -don't laugh- and it's too late to get another shipped...

    and

    that box of oil filters you'd had for a while now only contains dirty old spark plugs.

    I'm with you!

    I know it is getting close to rally time when I have a pinhole leak in my front brake hose! Same hose that was replaced a year and a half ago. That time, it was the Dells Rally that I missed...

    It's at the dealer as we speak. I'm optimistic I'll only be a day or so late to the ROK rally. Then, on to the MOA!

    Thanks (in advance) to Judson Cycle, my local dealer. They're working so I can ride!

    Edit: It's done! I'm leaving today for my ROK/MOA/American Heritage Ride/RA extravaganza!

    When you're checking the weather in TN every few hours for the temp forecast and hoping it's cooler than than the 98 degree heat we've got in Houston.... so that you can decide which clothes to pack.

    106.5 hours till departure.
