    Hey, come ahead. This will be my third Falling Leaf and the only rally I've been to. I see you ride an RS. What color? I'll keep an eye out for you. Mine is a black RSL and I'll have my 11-yr-old son with me. Meet you there!

    Hey, Jim, you folks have fun. Don't do anything I wouldn't do 2 or 3 times. I'll see you next week.

    I have not been back there since the bad luck weekend, when Rachael got sick.
    That Sunday was the beginning of the end of our life. (as we knew it), and I admit it,
    I am afraid.

    I will certainly miss hanging with you all, but have fun, and it looks to be a great weekend.
    Perhaps some year I will screw up the courage to go, and break the curse.
    19 BMWMOA Nationals under my belt, and I have no idea what I am doing.

    MarkM,

    I'm riding a pearl silver RS. It has color-matched bags and a black Givi top case. See you tomorrow!

    From the LD list:

    From: Lowell Mattox
    To: LDRider
    Subject: [LDRider] St. Louis traffic advisory: I-70 closed, yes
    closed, this weekend 10/7-8-9
    Message-ID:

    Content-Type: text/plain; charset=ISO-8859-1

    Not a time of year for lots of east/west motorcycle traffic, but with this
    crowd you never know.

    Anyhow, MODOT is closing I-70 near downtown STL (about mm249) Friday night
    10/7 8pm until 5pm Sunday 10/9. Unfortunate travelers who blunder into this
    mess will have a 2-mile, 12 controlled-intersection detour. They're
    bringing down bridgework, heckuva mess.

    Alternatives: probably best to take the 270 loop on the north side, or
    255/270 loop on the south side. I-64 is usually a good alternate, however
    the downtown terminus merges with I-70 to get across the Mississippi, so the
    potential for backups / general cluster-x is high.

    Forewarned is forearmed, and all that.

    (where, otherwise, it's predicted to be a delightful fall weekend here for
    riding or whatever...sunny, 70's)

    Northbound I-270 on my R90, I saw two southbound beemers.. stuck in traffic.

    Something came up, so I won't be camping. I'll be there Saturday, all day, though.
