Me and Mrs Blubyu are putting serious thought into it... We have a high schooler graduating on the 12th (if we don't get pushed back for snow days) we are really trying to figure out a way to make it work.... I may solo down with her flying to meet me then 2 up for the return. I would love to hook up and ride with you guys down if things fall into place.

If I was rich instead of so beautiful...
We're talking about it, but this year we've started a business and we're trying to save our pennies for some property and a new place. Trust me, it will consume my thoughts until the time comes.
How about flying there and renting a new 2015?

Hey Fabio-
Sent you a pm first of the week.

How was the test drive last week at the track?

I reject your reality, and replace it with my own..

I didn't go. My 'free' experience was going to cost me $210 in insurance, a suggested $100 tip to my co driver and a $7500 retainer on my credit card to cover any unforseen added costs. I cancelled.

aint that the way of it....

I won a fabulous free Florida vacation once. Then they wanted my card to charge "processing" fees of $1200 bucks. Told em I was ALL SET. then I found out that all the ppl that signed up for the drawing at the home show were winners too.

Kicking around going to Texas. Got a friend and relatives 30 miles from the venue. San Antonio is a cool place, kinda big though. GoogleEarth has it 2340 miles each way on the slab from Bangor to Kerrville, so it will be at least 5200
with side trips to the Twisted Sisters and such. My backseater wont be digging that, 10-14 days on the bike. Still not sure I can get two weeks vaca in a row anyway. See how it plays out, I guess.

At this point all's I know is I'm going. For me solo it's a 2 day trip. If im 2up & she can't get more than a week it will have to be done in 3 days! Like I said way to early for details.
