Toledo?  Don't drink the water!!

Well, someone had to say it! ;D
Can I have a motorcycle when I get old enough?
If you take care of it.
What do you have to do?
Lot’s of things. You’ve been watching me.
Will you show me all of them?
Sure.
Is it hard?
Not if you have the right attitudes. It’s having the right attitudes that’s hard.

I wouldn't be able to make that meeting as I will still be at work Art.  Where would you be going next?  I should be done with work by 4:30.  Would you be heading back to Detroit by then?

I can meet you guys there, but what is everyones' plans after that?  Looks like I am the guy to move "Zilla onward to Wisconsin?  Anyone else want to ride.  I would like to take the ferry across lake Michigan to Milwaukee, but that may not be good for everyone as it is expensive...but may be able to get a deal for one or two other guys from a good friend that works for the ferry service....or....is anybody wanting to do that long beautiful U.P. ride?  Thoughts?  Ideas?  We have got til the 20th to get 'Zilla to Old Scrambler.

that could work, and would give a chance tosome of the west side of the state guys who may have little time to get involved like Old School, Ekpent, Grepper etc..  Another additional option, I have some buddies that are doing a big group ride around the thumb this weekend but they are younger chopper guys...it may not be the best idea for us to stick with these hipster posers too strictly but I would be cool with being in their general vicinity for eating, drinking, and after ride hangin' with these brothers from a different motorcycle mother.  Then I could head back to the w. side and get 'Zilla to Wisconsin probably next weekend.

I'd like to try to make the ride down to meet Art and Ken on Thursday.  What time are you planning on leaving Dave?  Is anyone else meeting up with you?

It looks like I am going to miss this year's run, although if the group (or just Sean) end's up coming down around the Lake and around Chicago I would happily meet up in my MG.

Somebody should also PM Tews with the timing as I know he was interested in participating this year.

I don't want to miss out on this Guys!  The only full days I have will be Friday and Sunday.  Saturday I have to be in Flint in the evening for that Birthday party.  I could meet Dave and ride with him to the hand off with Sean.  Maybe ride out again on Sunday. Would you be heading back home Sean?

Tews, looks like I will be in Milwaukee sat 8/16 and sun 8/17.  That's my tentative plan right now, anyway.  Would be great to have you lead the way to Old Scrambler.

Do you have a place to stay Saturday?  I could do Sunday if I'm not to hung over. We have done this draft for 8 years and sometimes it ends up being a late night.

probably staying with friends but I may take you up on your offer if they are busy...I will be hungover too!   We are talking about Milwaukee, afterall.
