Personally, I'm looking forward to the event. I'm not your typical fringe/armchap-clad Harley rider however I'm planning to make the ride from San Diego to Milwaukee and back.



I figure it's a once-in-a-lifetime event since I don't plan on being around for the 200th!

Said he was going on business or something. Personally I think he's actually riding with the Highwayman.



But don't quote me.

Re: Earth to H-D . . .

Back in the 70s and 80s there was a lesbian m/c gang that I used to see around Hollywood a lot. All done up butch and riding black/red Honda DOHC CB750Fs.

Go figure.

Maybe I could tow the Duc with the Geezer Glide! The Duc has been on plenty of road trips so the Glide deserves a good thrashing.



A lot of people are riding to this event (I'm sure there will be plenty of trailers) and I'm really looking forward to being out on the open road and experiencing thousands of Harleys all converging on Milwaukee.

It's because they spent all their money on chrome for their bike. :) Actually, in my neck of the woods (Seattle) H-D owners are usually are dressed up in the best HD gear and live in upscale neighborhoods. Do I sound jealous. Wish I had their disposable income but not their bike.

Re: Make sure to bypass Colorado cause your HD can't make it over the Mountains

Well take that "sport-touring" Ninja, pack it with a passenger and enough gear for a trip to say, Boston, and we'll race. My Electra glide against the Ninja.

If you're not divorced at the end it will be a miracle. ;-)

Remember the story about the Tortoise and the Hare?

I rode over 1000 miles in two days on my YZF600R with the wife onboard. This was with packed soft luggage and the majority of it was in the rain. She was a pretty good sport about it. At least we had proper gear.
