OK who will be there. I may or may not have the bike back in time.:cry: It kind of depends on the repair shop and the carb.

I am bringing a generator and can share power with 3 or 4 teams if we can find a spot away from the masses. The generator is not totally quiet if you know what I mean.:mrgreen:

You'll have no problems. I called them and they are looking for you. :biggrin: No I mean they are looking to let you thru with all that Canadian beef.:roll:

Now maybe I can remember to pack the Crown to make you feel welcome. I already have lots of Jack in the trailer.

No more sharing power guys. I got home today and we now have a nice new EU2000 so nice and quiet. Bike is out to get value estimated so won't be there. Now where are those shady spots I have never been able to get with the motor home.

See you when you pull in.

Wife and I just got back from Taste of G. Rapids Competition. Its about 45 miles from our house and we decided a dinner invite from Tonto and Bud was a great offer to visit with great friends.
We had supper with the Smokin Scottsman team, saw Ford and Carol and SpyderMikes teams and Julie Applegate as well.
Finaly got to meet Merl Whitebrook...what a fine gentleman he is, but our visit was very breif as turn ins were in progress.
The weather was wonderful, storms predicted tonite but keeping fingers crossed that the storms dont materialize.
The weather was extreemly nice compared to 2 yrs. ago when I met Jeff from KC and Curt from BuckyMcOinkims.
We had a wonderful time while we were in attendance of some wonderfull Brethren Teams.

Bull, it was great to meet you although it was quick. I was walking to check with a team about a non turn in. It is great to see so many strong Brethren teams in this competition. This will be a great contest.
Thanks for comming by
Merl
