I may too bring a pistol or two. I wish I could haul my 300 min mag on the bike, but I don't even know if your range can handle it.

All I have cleared is enough for a little over 100 yards. Shooting a 300 Winchester Mag at 100 yards is the definition of overkill! Last year BBalzer brought his 454 Casul Alaskan, and I got my jollies big time.

Marble Falls is close enough that you could come here as a day-trip while at the ralley! Have fun!

1,138mi for me. Going to ride straight thru. I'll try to take a little nap after work Thursday and be on the road by 10pm.

You'll be in the running to win the highly-coveted prize for the long-distance rider. I think this year I may bump it up to a gently-used genuine Honda oil filter! The runner-up will get the spare tire from my old motorhome.

A little spritz of Honda Spray polish and that slightly used oil filter will look just like new.

He's not joking about that spare tire - been trying for years to get someone to take it.

As Glen indicated in a later (earlier) post - the criks do rise there - gramps and I barely made it out of there. A Goldwing CAN traverse a foot of running water.

Will mark the calendar. I have a nice looking woman i want to bring (not my wife) and she said she would dance on the pole after Kevin gets off but she wants to collect some tips. Might bring her sister also if i can fit both on my bike. I will text you a picture of her on your phone. Post it if you dare.

I won't post the picture because I want to marry her! I hope you didn't send her picture to anybody else, for I want her beauty to be for my eyes only!

When my wife turned 40 I told her I was going to trade her in for two 20 year olds.

She told me that I'm not wired for 220.
