    This sounds NICE;

    I was looking at sight map myself and see US there. My bike is all preped and ready, just its rider has some some serious mending in order for the next 8-9 days. I am not backing down, as yet. That heat worries me some(not being 100%myself), as I know it too well, been there, done that a zillion times. STILL worth all the GREAT TIMES had and this year seems even better. Ya'll "may still" find me among the most hard core GSAers this year, just give me some room to relax, kick back...MO BIGGA, I love it. Randy"Polarbear"...Same GSA1200, White of course

    See above! Take your best guess and I'll award points tomorrrow.

    Me too, very interested in seeing this play out. It should be a great time and the GS Giant seems a great way to start out the week.

    GS BS Challenge #2

    It's time to learn more about The Show Me State!

    We've put together a list of 100+ BS places to visit to get a taste of the local culture. One is this general store. It's located "East of Ava or South of Norwood as the crow flies". An extra hint: it's along the banks fo the Fox River.

    Tell me the name of the general store and the owner's name for 2 GS BS points. First correct answer wins. Get Googling!

    Ya'll first timers:)

    I'm into about my 30th one of these big rallies this year, so I missed a few, but its STILL very exciting for me too after all those past ones. These things just seem to get better with age. The GSGiant is still in its infancy, a few years now and WOW how its growing. You shouldn't be disappointed. A really great time had and some of the best rider friends you'll ever meet. We'll be around for years and years to come. There WILL be also some of the best instructors/riders there to help you along this learning curve if needed. Seminars for GS skills,YEP/OARK and Sedalia by pros and riders with years in... I'm also lookng forward to meeting all again or first time....Happy Trails, Randy"Polarbear"

    Thats "Henson's General Store", owned by Betty/Duane Henson and there folks Ed and Anna. Since 1940. Champion,MO. is hard to find, not on a lot of maps. Nice...Need more? 20 or so miles to Norwood, closer to Ava,MO. Randy
