i've been thinking this for a while and just wanted to through it out there and see what you fellas think. the collision is about to move further west. i suspect it is moving toward a get to together for the godfathers during their spring vacation ride and that's ok. moving further west is a problem for me, dedwood is a little too far for a weekend ride. i and some of the others have mentioned missing the eureka springs venue. it's a great place for an early season get together. they have really great riding all through arkansas. how about we have a get together there first weekend in june every year. they would love to have us. no harley only rule, or no trailering rule. no organized anything unless by the riders there at the time. four or fourty it would be nice to see some of the old friends we have made during collision and an oportunity to make some more. would give us something to talk about those winter evenings sitting by the fire as well as to look fwd to during our winter slow down on trips time. what think you guys? i think we should do it! grin

Since I now have a touring bike, I'm in if it fits my work schedule.

I've tried to make these togethers twice before. First time I had to cancel due to work. Cancelled the second time for a hurricane.

Maybe 3rd time's a charm?

The only time I've gotten to meet folks is when they're local or come through the area.

Sent from here to there.

Like Alan, it always depends on my work schedule, but I would definitely be interested.

eureka springs is a meat and potato town, breakfast at the filling station usually involves a pound of bacon! supper at least one day is catfish and the best hushpuppies i have ever eaten. and of course pie is everywhere in arkansas. i was thinking it would be a good ride for the road glide that is probably going to be in your future brian.:smile

Tommy, assuming my back is doing better than it recently has been, I'm good to go anywhere you guys want to gather. It was tough to have to miss this year, and hopeful the little program I am on will take care of the back issues.

This is true. The question I have is it better to get RG Limited with water cooled heads or RG Special with oil cooled heads for eventual performance upgrades? :think

If I do get the RG Limited, I will likely make it look like the RG Special (but with the lowers to house the radiators).

Zephyr Blue/Black Sunglow currently is the color of choice.

Gonna be hard for us to make any of these. Leaving for West Coast trip mid May and have to be back mid June for Grand Daughters Graduation. We'll be up in Montana early June. Will see y'all at the Twister.

Get the one with the tour pack ... I bought mine used ... It has a Q/D tour pack and rack along with a sissybar with a backrest.

I have dis-mounted the T/P twice and didn't notice that much difference in the handling but, the extra storage with the T/P on is nice.

Being old and arthritic, leaving ALL of the junk off of the rear fender made it a LITTLE easier to mount and dismount but, not enough to where I want to keep removing and installing the pieces.

I don't know if you are married or not but, having rented a few bikes and having friends allow me (us) to ride theirs, "the Old Woman" helped me choose when it was time to get a touring bike. (She also likes "Pearl" so we're keeping her for short trips and around town.)

Now, she puts on her gear and patiently waits by the door as a subtle hint ... Screw the chores, we NEED to go riding! :wink

Cheers,
Smoketown
