Default Taste of Grand Rapids, Grand Rapids, MI - July 25 & 26, 2008

OK who will be there. I may or may not have the bike back in time. 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.

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

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