September 30, 2014Anybody here going to Myrtle beach for the fall rally? I would like to go , but do not believe I will get to go, got too much going on right now. But I sure would like to get away for a few days, I need a break from my regular schedule and do something different.

It doesn`t look like I will get to go. My wife has invited one of her girlfriends (and her husband) down for the weekend from Raleigh. They are showing up on Friday afternoon, and leaving Sun. afternoon and I`m trying to set up a golf outing with him on Saturday.
October 1, 2014Changed my mind, got my bike packed and I am heading to Myrtle beach in the morning. I sure hope the weather is nice, I need a good few days away ,not a miserable trip. MCg and Scoot, I will try and get by and see you both sometime the next couple of days.
October 2, 2014I am up got to feed the dogs, take a shower , get dressed and hit the road, should be in Myrtle around 1:30 to 2 pm. today. Hope ya`ll are having nice weather down that way.
October 2, 2014I just went out and fed the dog, it is really wet outside, had no idea it rained last night, I knew it reined before dark ,but it has rained quite a bit during the night. Says 0% chance of rain here after 8 am. so maybe I will get lucky and not hit rain, did not want to start want wearing a rain suit. Also the bike is clean ,clean and di not want to get road grime all over it, but looks like I will now unless I wait quite a while for the roads to dry. Oh well!!! that is bike riding for sure, never know what mother nature will throw at you, regardless of what the forecast say.

Took my bike into the dealers this morning to get the (recall) on the hydraulic clutch handled. I`ve had no problems with mine, but while there, did meet a guy with a new one that had the problem the first week he owned the bike.
Got the bike back this afternoon, and rode on down to Poos since it was Fall Bike Week and I cannot get freed up this weekend due to family stuff.
Called VT and he was down on the South end of town where he was staying. He rode up to Poos and we met up with McG inside the place and shot the bull. Poos parking lot was jammed up when I first got there around 3:15. They were doing a bang up business. Lots of scoots at the Swing Bridge Saloon too.
October 3, 2014Like Mos said - I met up with him and VT a little after 3:00pm yesterday. Gonna meet VT at Longbeards for supper at 5:00pm today. It`s always nice to meet up with the guys from out-of-town.
October 3, 2014You guys enjoy. Sure love to be there.
October 4, 2014Had supper with Randy last night. Real nice time together. All you folks need to let me know when you`ll be here next year, May or October, and I`ll make sure we meet up at least twice. Real easy to do. Randy goes down to the campground every morning for breakfast. He meets up with a bunch of folks he knows after having done it for so many years. He stayed in a Motel on Ocean Drive for a total of $150 for three nights.
I just finished helping another young friend of mine get a bike. 2001 Heritage with lots of chrome and updates. $7,500. He rode it home yesterday from Charlotte. Loves it.
October 5, 2014Hey guys,
I am home from the beach, decided just to leave Saturday, left around 12pm. and got home at 5 pm. I was rolling. I rode a little over 200 miles without stopping after I topped the tank off at the I-95 exit where I get back onto 95 going home. It is around 340 miles so 5 hours is not too slouchy. I ran 75 and 80 most of the way up I-95, it got cooler all the way north and was windy, found out there was a cold front moving in. It was 33 degrees here this morning when I got up.
As always I enjoyed getting to see Moscooter and McG, The weather was nice a little cloudy Friday night but it never did rain, and it was real warm from about 10am. on during the day. It was a little cooler Saturday , but nice. Always liked Myrtle in the fall. C.W. and Ernie, I wish you guys could have been there too,It would have given me someone to run around with, anyway maybe someday.

VT..........It was good to see you again. Hope you can get things sorted out up there over the coming months.
I`m just gonna mention this one more time, I have noticed many, many posts on other sites as to "lifter" failures. As you are stacking on lots of miles, I recommend you take a hard look at yours and maybe consider putting in a new set. Some are swapping out lifters after 20,000 miles.......(just to avoid a lifter failure).
