    I'll be the one on the KLR tho. Leaving my GS home so that I can focus on some serious dual sport riding this weekend.

    I'll be there - either evening works for me. Look forward to seeing some familiar faces from FLR and meeting some new folks.

    Yep, I'll be at the campfire! I'll probably be doing the rotisseree (sp.?) thing trying to keep both sides of me warm.

    Just be patient with me... if you call my name or say something to me and I don't respond I'm not being snobby. Really. I am hearing impaired so call a little louder or repeat what you said (and make sure I can see your face as I lip-read to some extent).

    Looking forward to meeting everyone!

    The weather forecast is definitely improving!! But...it will be chilly on Saturday night as that cold front comes through..hope we don't get a lot of rain, but bring your rain gear!! Also, there is that added bonus of a music festival on the grounds above where we have our rally, and your wrist band to the BDB will get you into the music fest, so there will be a lot going on!! I'll give a (literal) shout out to you, Louise! And can't wait to meet you, Tracy! Please come up to me if you see me first!!

    The Rhode Island Club will be there, several who are also Yankee Beemers. We are in Cabin 19/19A ( I think) stop by and say hello.
    The thing about traveling is, you never want it to end and you can't wait to get home.
    I answer to Roy, Chief, or Sarg.

    BMWBMW will have a cabin on the hill, not sure of the number, but you'll see our banner!

    Safe travels, and look forward to meeting you.

    Yeah... I was just looking at the forecast. Not the best but doesn't seem to be a washout either. It'll be just a tad nippy in the morning tomorrow (Friday) here but that's why they make heated grips and electric heated jacket liners! I'm going to be real glad to have both. It can rain at night all it wants.... That's what happened at the Vermont rally a couple of weeks ago.

    Don't waste your energy shouting if I have my helmet on! I wear the type of ear plugs that block all noise. (I just got them this year and I don't know HOW I rode without them all these years but that's not why one of my ears doesn't work.) If my helmet is off... shout away! My smile is ready.

    I have no idea what cabin I'm in but I'm looking forward to not having to pack and set up the tent for this trip.

    Vroom, vroom!

    I will keep my eyes peeled for the bike.

    Understand your condition/situation----hampered by the same audio problem..however, I must say lip reading is fun and a personal source of enjoyment.
    It continues to amaze me how the human being picks up on so many visual clues.
    Makes our eyes even more important and precious!

    Have a great day and life!

    Nice to know I'm not alone. For me the impairment comes from my mother having had German measels in the first trimester when she was pregnant with me. It's a common birth deffect when the mother has that while pregnant - especially when the disease hits early in the pregnancy. Usually the child has no hearing at all. There are other birth defects that can happen too that are more severe so the doctors tell me that I am fortunate in that I have as much hearing as I do. These days I am trying to protect what hearing I have.
