    Well the equipment ready is one thing, but it has to be used. LOL

    I have AAA, that might work for me.

    I am thinking of putting my father in law on standby. He lives near gaylord/manelona area.

    I was talking with some of the core group for this ride.

    This is NOT a rain or shine event. If it rains, it's postponed till Spring. Only other thing is, IF south is not rain forecasted. We may change direction.

    Reasons:
    It's going to be cold regardless, rain will make it much worse.
    The rain will slow us down.
    It increases danger level.

    Comments?

    Watching the weather....

    If you are planning on this you need to do a few things...

    1. Prepare your bike
    2. Get your cold weather gear ready
    3. Print your required papers.
    4. Confirm your intention to attend.

    I sure hope its not as cold as this morning.

    Riding in the cold around town or on shorter trips is one thing. Being up for 18hrsand counting with 750miles under ya and in cold temps is another!!

    Yeah... I'm concerned about low temps after many hours of riding...

    40* around town is one thing.
    but what about after 500 miles...
