OH NO!
Iíll still on my way back from Americade that weekend. A long time ridding friend and I will be leaving June 2nd and probably not returning until the REunion weekend.

The plan is to cross Canada to Ottawa, then south to Lake George, NY for a few days at Americade. From There to Gettysburg for a day and overnight, then on to DC where we will meet the SO''s at the airport. We will all do the usual tourist thing in DC for a few days then drop the SO's at Dulles. Then home through WV, OH, IN, Il, IA, and MN of course.

Maybe if we are in the neighborhood of Eagle Cliff early enough on Sunday, on our way back, we can stop.

Our planned route is through Anamosa, IA (The National Motorcycle Museum) and up Hwy 52. We will then be going right past the area. I would really like to see everyone again.

1,877 miles or 36 hours, 12 minutes for me.
I can break it better,,,,at night, in the rain, on the trail,, 20 miles from nowhere.

How do you split that up?  3x12 hour days or 4x9 hour days? 900 miles in a car is about my limit these days so on a bike I would think 450 to 500 would be pushing it.

 Now that you mention it,,,,that was Google maps best on the road at posted speed limit non stop drive estimated time.

 REal time would have to factor in food and fuel stops, EDF, getting lost "scenic detours" getting un stuck on said detours, enjoying the view, a exhaustion induced coma good night sleep in motel, a good meal or two, a couple visits with a chiropractor, walking fifteen miles for gas "aerobic exercise",,,,,,,,,call it a week give or take.
I can break it better,,,,at night, in the rain, on the trail,, 20 miles from nowhere.

You know I would like to be there. I'll try to get there early enough on Sunday to see everyone. However after nearly 4K miles in 14 days, I'll be more into coffee and conversation.

Have failth. Getting lost in those hills and roads can be a good thing. You will eventually either run across Hwy 59, 52, I-90 or the river.

Jane told me I would like your new bike. She is right. Sweet ride the Connie 14.

Hope you do make it even for just Sun. morning.

I'll get on mapquest and map a day ride out. Unlike you I'm not disciplined enough to be out in front though. Might run it through the gears and watch the Enfields (except for Bobs Fireball) turn into tiny little dots in the mirrors.
I do a lot better bringing up the rear picking up the extra parts.

"Disciplined"? Not a word often used to describe my riding style...

Mentioned it to the wife, her only comment was she did not want to drive over 700 miles in the truck to pick me up.  Hmm,  was not a definite no, and the seed has been planted.
