    Is winter going to ever end? Most of our local fun canyon roads are not open yet. Its supposed to snow again this week. I've had my bike out around town (well, and up Big Cottonwood Canyon), but its just not the same as a several hundred mile mind cleanser.

    No UN for me as the timing is conflicting and I have an all day event to put on at the MOA rally. Sure wish the UN organizers would try to not have a conflict next year. The MOA Rally is a constant event, the UN moves around the calendar.

    Thumbs up

    Besides riding to/from work daily, each weekend has one day weather permitting that is devoted to riding different roads in N FL and S GA. An RTE to Tybee Is, Panama City, Ocala, etc with one or two friends. The Redmond Rally, and the Texas Hill Country this fall will be the longer rides that are planned this year.

    Well, I just got back from a run down to the BMWST Torrey event. This is a very unorganized get together in South-Central Utah. We slabbed it down because of dark clouds over our preferred route. Spent some time on local rides near Torrey, Utah 72, aka "Sweeper Madness" ; Utah 12 over Boulder Mountain to the Burr Trail and Escalante; and Utah 72 to Utah 10 to Utah 31 today on the way home, just a few flurries going up and down from the pass, and wind. I really needed that.

    Two trips I planned didn't happen this year... I am not planning another one for it to be strike three.

    I've heard mixed stories about the Wisconsin Dells rally.... is it a good rally? I've never been there. Thanks.

    It is the BEST! It's our 40th and we're planning a great Rally. Stay tuned, bmwgsrider. Hopefully, we'll have another womens seminar like last year. And the roads are great in that part of the state. Keep your eyes posted on the regional forum in August. I'll be posting info there.

    Ahhhh..... the lovely looonnnggggg straight stretches of road in eastern Montana and the Dakotas.

    I sing out loud, as loud as I can or I be bop along with the electronic dance music I add to the MP3. I have discussions with myself about whatever current event pops into my head. I honk and wave and yell at cows, horses, dogs, birds, etc.
    Work my way through the alphabet by looking for stuff.... asphalt, box, cow, door, ears (of corn), flower, etc etc. I usually end up cheating.

    Caffeine pills help. :-)
    Too damn many bikes to list
