After a year of planning I am running out of time to get the bike packed and ready to go for Tuesday night short haul to Brian's for an early start Wednesday.
Weather looks to be fairly warm with multiple chances of rain and occasional sunny bits on our route.

Phil

Hey Guys,

I know the mountains make their own weather, but the forecasts aren't looking very dry, so not sure how much taming I will feel confident in doing with possibly wet/slippery roads! Sunday looks to be the dryer of the two.
I may end up running through a fair amount of stuff just getting there, will bring back memories of 3 years ago! At least I know Godzilla runs just fine in the pouring rain, but hope I don't have to experience too much of it!

The word scattered storms gives me hope, but we had some local stuff today that even though short in duration, flooded roadways for a bit. This global warming letting more moisture build up in the clouds is something!

Everyone be safe getting to the rally.

T.C.

Just got back from having supper with 3Phase and XJOK2PLAY.

Scott and I will start headed that way Wednesday. Hopefully it won't be too bad.

I have rain gear.

Dinner was excellent and I fear no rain storm, I have the gear and a slow motorcycle but why the heck did I wake up at 2:00 AM?

The latest glitch: 117" performance engines are hard on the starter motors, it's going out and the extra juice it's pulling scorched the battery terminals. Route 66 Harley in Tulsa cleaned up the battery and terminals but they don't have another starter in stock, this one will have to do for now.

You know how much crap we’re going to dish out to you, right? That is, if that new bike gets you there.

Wow...
I had a feeling it might not be a battery issue.
Can't believe it's a starter, though. Dang...
Hope it holds up for the trip.

I'm not sure if it'll push/roll start. It might but I haven't tried it yet.

Rally Preparations have begun!!!!

XS Friends,
The rally preparations are in full swing!!!



One of the first arrivals is this (my) '82 SECA 650.



SECA's big brother XS11's are up at Rocky Top Lodge!!!!

Weather Report:
We've had a LITTLE light drizzle today and a LITTLE is expected for tomorrow.
PAY NO ATTENTION to the national weather forecasts for EASTERN North Carolina. The North Carolina coast is >500 MILES FROM Stecoah in WESTERN North Carolina!! There are NO road closures over here absolutely NO EFFECT from any of the weather problems FAR EAST OF HERE!!


Weather is expected to be great for the weekend here.


Sincerely,
