    ok, i had an idea, figured i'd get things started & see if there's any interest.

    what i'm proposing is a virtual poker run...use my place as a card station, then take off from there on 5 different routes around the peninsula. the area offers some really nice clean asphalt, & scenery deluxe.

    i can host 3 or 4 riders & bikes, and if need be i can find tent & rv sites at good rates.

    ok, let's see if we can do anything with this as a starting point.

    i'm proposing the end of may, that should give us enough time to put it together.

    since it's "virtual", I can ride too......only in Kansas, I'll be riding through the reclaimed, coalmined landscape. You'll have to email me my cards.... :lol:

    no problem, yours are already picked out :p

    it looks like quay1962 and fiance will be motorized in a coupla weeks, and maybe wavygravy will get one soon, too.

    the northwest is filling up...we just gotta get one decent size rally together
    up here this summer, the peninsula's perfect for it.

    i take full responsibilty for this shameless "bump"...i wanna ride!!!

    no...quay went thru a nightmare return-process with another engine kit, but to the seller's credit a full refund was tendered.

    dax says to wait 10 days after payment before shipping. it hurts like heck to wait, but it's worth it 8)

    thought i'd mention, tomorrow (sat afternoon) quay/shane, me/possibly a date, and wavygravy/mrs. gravy will be getting together for our 1st monthly BBQ and "whatever"...pics will be put up afterwards :D
