    The guy with the IV in his arm...for the "butt block" drip to keep the pain away!

    I don't know about that... they probably got there in the quickest time!

    That one was mine....

    ...but it wasn't the only one there.
    I counted 5, not including the demo's, drag, and stunt bikes.

    There was mine....the only green one (besides Brock's!)


    There was another one from Washington State...


    Then the "touring" edition from Montana....


    Then there was Minnesota Ben's....we hooked up for a ride to Fossil....


    And there was a Motorsports Edition (red, white and blue) that I saw in the Motel 6 parking lot....though I never got a picture....

    I'll be posting Rally Ride Report soon....covered over 1300 miles in 3 1/2 days...the butt was fine but a throttle lock would have been "handy"!

    I even got over 44mpg on a few tanks of gas......in Race Mode!!!
    I love this bike! Over 3200 flawless miles so far!

    If you can't go fast with 100hp, you can't go fast with 200hp.

    So cool, too bad you weren't around when I dropped by. Would have been great to meet you. Glad to see that many guys make the trek on that awesome bike!

    At the Cycle World show I met a couple from MN that had just bought one. I don't recall his name but he and his wife were going to ride 2-up out to the rally.

    Was that Ben and, if so, how did the wife enjoy the ride?
