In the eternal words of Elwood, "It's a 106 miles to Chicago. We got a full tank of gas, half a pack of cigarettes, it's dark and we're wearing sunglasses. Hit it."

Leaving Tues at 5 pm for Gunnison via Monument Valley and Paonia. Bikes all good on fluids, air and TB sync. Bags are already packed and routes programmed into the GPS. Smelly Ceegars are all ready to go, the Mp3 player has 400 songs in it and Meghan is giddy as a school girl. Tomorrow is going to be a long day waiting for her to get off of work before we can leave.

We're not leaving until friday afternoon, so we are going to be doing some serious riding to make it to Gunnison on Sunday. It's going to be a long week. We are really looking forward to meeting everyone. We hope to be checked into the Ramada by early Sunday afternoon, and then on to the KOA.

I forced OldRider to go through Soda Springs, ID, so I could check on a namesake there. He was a doctor and treated one of the injured "Wild Bunch" while in hiding, at the turn of the century. It also was our favorite movie in H.S., and we adopted the name then too. Good call OldBunchedUp.

Can't Sleep. Bennie, my '97 R1100RT is getting shod with MEZ4s today. Major service is done. This is my first solo tour. Can't quite figure out how to get the blasted kitchen sink in the Top Case, but the rest of the house is packed and ready to go. See you Hoons soon.

The family and I will be heading out of St. Louis on Friday evening, chasing the sunset down the slab (I-70). We are looking forward to meeting you all in Gunnison. I noticed that my daughter had bought some pepper spray. When I asked if it was to drive off bears, she said no. It was for the Hells Angels or Wurty, whichever came first. Have a good ride guys.

My engine's starting tomorrow night, it just won't be a BMW engine this trip.

So we'll have to do this again next year, so I can RIDE in instead of driving in, RIGHT???

Leaving at 4:30 this afternoon with Antonio Chanco (Pepochanco on the BBS), a fellow SoCal rider. EZ ride to Vegas tonight, Torrey on Friday Night, Montrose, CO on Saturday with a possible re-route through Paonia depending on the time and the heat.

An hour in the pool, a good steak, then on to Gunnison Sunday. Should be there around noonish.
