Well lets just say we had an interesting day! Had a bunch of guys bail due to concerns over the heat index and then the 40 percent chance of rain turned into an outright hurricane! Ride up was great met up with @BB Bomber and his buddy Duke, caught a few drops of rain about 30 minutes out. Arrived there about 10:30 and grabbed some grub for a late breakfast at the timeline cafe. And then the sky opened up, wind gusting and sideways rain that made you feel like you were on an episode of Deadliest Catch. Trees and power lines down and a total loss of power at the dealership compound. We caught a window in the storm around 1:30 threw on the rain gear and made tracks for home. Caught a pretty steady downpour by the time we hit the interstate in Appleton which turned to on and off for the wife and I where we parted ways on the south end of Oshkosh (although BB tells me they had rain all the way back to Milwaukee). All said it was less than ideal but that said it was great to catch up with BB again and honestly have no regrets and would do the same ride again without hesitation. I'll take an adventure out on the road over sitting at home any day. We will have to try this again before the end of the season, hopefully under better conditions. What do you say @SteadyEddie @BH#103 ?

Sounds like a real adventure ride.

LOL

If that's the experience you guys had then I'm glad I got to miss it. Glad you followed through and made it though! I'm in for whatever, just bad timing this time around. Getting to the Dell's is still on the list.

I don't know if all that cool stuff is really there. Didn't get to see it. But we did see the pirate ship. Thought might need that if another storm ripped through.
