    Always a good time and we'll of course be there again this year.

    I see they are changing things up a bit by having a Lunch Wagon but I sure hope they still have PIE!!!

    Dang Airheads are always thinkin. Great idea having a tech day at the meet. We usually have an informal one on how to get a swapmeet bike running or how to disassemble one with a hammer and a screwdriver. And you can always pitch a tent in the pig barn if it looks like rain. And there is always some pie-like substance available. I say pie-like cause I got a bad memory, there is desert.

    I guess I'll go again this year ... If you all promise to buy all of my parts so that I don't have to take 'em back home again and if both days are sunny and if it is not really windy and if the temperature stays above average.

    Hate to say it, the forecast looks good. At least for selling.

    Friday

    HIGH/LOW

    60/47

    Partly sunny at the open, but soon clouding over

    Growing prospects for showers in the afternoon and evening. Mainly southerly winds 12 to 24 mph and gusty.


    Saturday

    HIGH/LOW

    64/48

    A good deal of cloudiness, mild.

    Southerly winds may become southeasterly in the afternoon, limiting warming at lakeshore locations and restricting temperatures there to the 40 and low 50s while inland locations reach the 60s.


    Sunday

    HIGH/LOW

    73/58

    Partly sunny, breezy and turning milder, particularly away from the Lake Michigan shoreline.

    Southeast winds becoming more southerly inland locations in the afternoon and strengthening 8 to 18 mph. Stronger south to southwest winds take hold Sunday night. Inland highs reach the low 70s while immediate lakeshore areas may hold to the mid 50s to low 60s.

    Wezul, I hope your forecast holds. That would be among the nicest weather I've experienced at the Expo.

    Sounds like the nicest weather forecast I've heard for this meet. Due to some recently developed issues with my /5, I will not be able to attend. Makes me sick because of all the great deals I will be missing.

    That's Tommy Skillethead for the Metro are, close enough for jazz, right?
    We do not say Chicagoland here, this is not an amusement park.
    Uh . . . . . . yeah, isn't. Seriously
    That is warmer than most years though right?
    About time, too.
    Alrighty then, likely I'll see you all up there

    Had a great time and glad I mad it out for camping. About the best weather I can remember for this meet. Airhead central was a cozy spot to relax and enjoy the cool evening breeze. Airheads outdid themselves again.

    Cool

    Yep. That is the most fun that I have had in Pecatonica in a long time. Almost as good as when Edgar Winter Group played there in 1972 with Rick Derringer. No, maybe even better than that. Thanks for all the good conversation and camaraderie and helping to empty some of my boxes of BMW parts.

    So who is bringing an airhead for sale?

    My boyfriend has very wisely decided he needs to build a cafe racer. So who is going to bring us an airhead suitable for the project? I can bring a trailer. Really

    James A may be bringing my 1986 R80RT (which has the fairing removed) Depends on room in his trailer. For sure he'll be bringing my BMW by Dainese riding suit which you suckers have repeatredly refused to buy over the last two sessions in Pecatonica...

    I ought to buy the suit myself.

    To answer WI Sharon's question, there are always airheads for sale at the expo.
    Apart from Mac's R80, I have an R75/5 that would be particularly well suited for a cafe make-over.
