We already know most of the details...

Shawn and I had a super secret double blind conference call the other night while I was walking through the car parts store.

The when part....

Ok, I'll give you a few details














Later on....

Worked out great for me! Went to the MOA after the UN and had a set of Ohlins put on the bike then headed up to Seattle.

I am flying back to Seattle next Wednesday to pick up the bike and will ride back via Glacier, Yosemite, Grand Tetons, Mt. Rushmore, Crazy Horse, up over Lake Michigan and Lake Erie through Canada to Niagara Falls then to a rally in Watkins Glen, NY before heading to DC. smile

Bob,
Just follow my bread crumb trail, If your trip is going to include a stop over in Duluth to visit the good folks at Aero stich. Heed this warning if you are traveling west on 2, GPS plotted route to veer off Rt.2 (65mph) on to Rt.191 (55mph) While traveling less than 200ft on said rd. the on coming undercover lit up as did my radar detector, leo quickly pulled over to right letting following traffic pass. Indicated was 67MPH I thought OK and continued on my way quickly realizing I had company he followed for about a mile or minute. Turned on the pull over lights I quickly pulled over, removed my gloves as quickly as possible placed them on my radar detector in hope to hide from enforcement.
officer: Do you know how fast you was going.
ME: Yes sir 65MPH
Officer: The speed limit on this road is 55mph, you were traveling 71mph license please.
ME: Sorry I did not see the sign (probabaly because I was paying attention to you abruptly swerving to the right) by any chance are you giving fellow civil Servants breaks today?
Officer: With a glaring look again he requested my license.

Ok with that said forty dollars for speeding eight-five dollars court cost and two dollars for paying with credit card. Hope insurance company never finds out. The strangest part of this whole episode was the effect it had on my throttle control for the next 48hr.

I know many folks got to do both. I'm committed to putting on the Chartered Club Leadership Summit on Wednesday. So I have to be there by at least Tuesday and then volunteer on registration on Thursday so it takes up UN time if they are the same week.

However, for the thousands of others who make the UN, it works out real well. grin
