    New Glarus 2014

    Yes, folks, it's time to think of what to do during the season of poor riding. I realize there are some intrepid individuals who will ride in just about any weather condition, but then there are some who suffer from PMS (Parked Motorcycle Syndrome). So this event is an attempt to remedy some of the symptoms of that malady. The place is the same as always, the Chalet Landhaus in New Glarus, Wisconsin. Look it up. The dates are January 24, 25, 26. There is a heated indoor pool and a hot tub, and a fireplace in the lobby where we usually congregate/hang out. The usual activities are planned, and if you haven't been there before, we won't tell you what that entails. One word of warning - those wild women of the knitters guild will also be there, so be prepared.

    Mike, you'd be most welcome to hang out with us. Just like at a rally, we bring stuff to share while in the lobby by the fireplace. Sometimes Roy even brings his friend Don along.

    Sounds like fun.

    I have it marked down. Hope to make it this year. Also hoping to trailer a couple bikes down to the SW (warmer weather) for a couple of weeks (4?????) Stay tuned. (get it???)

    Funny you should ask. I just replaced the choke lever on the 73 Toaster last week. I went through it in the spring and have been riding it a lot over the summer. Lever broke the night before I was packing for a weekender at Boscoville for the TWALD gathering. Ended up taking my R1200GSA. Was kinda bummed out about it since it is a vintage gathering. The 4 hour ride home in the rain changed my mind.

    I just rolled out the 70 with hack yesterday. Was loading it up to have some sidecar work done at Kurt L. First time I started it since last summer. It started but needs a little tuning. Will be going through that one when I get it back from Kurt with the sidecar reattached the right way. May have to have a tech session on carbs. Will probably buy the Bing rebuild kit. I hear they have a good video on carb rebuilds. I may replace the carbs too. I hear the early carbs are not as good on the /5. May opt for a carb upgrade if it makes sense.

    Sorry, had lunch here and then left.

    Turned out to be sunny this afternoon but still in the 40's.

    My trip to the SW prevents me from making it. Loading the trailer and taking off for 6 weeks to sunny S CA. Was thinking of the Death Valley Rendezvous also but have to pick up the wife from the airport that weekend so that is out. I may do a ride out there anyway. I have had enough of this winter. So much for global warming. You guys enjoy. Will be thinking of you guys shivering in your garages getting the bikes ready for spring. May see you in Pecatonica if I do not head down to S Carolina. Retirement is good.
