I'll be there Friday AM.  I'm working on some killer Enfield-friendly scenic rides for the weekend.

Lookin' good!

42 is especially nice.  Any chance you could hit W south from Versailles, to Bagnell Dam and ride through LOTO SP?  Then you could enjoy a bit more of 42....

Good photo ops and kitsch along the "Strip" on Bus. 54 from the Dam...

W looks very interesting on the map. I was planning on stopping in Eldon for lunch at the Eager Beaver they have the best back berry pie. I could back track some and still have my pie

I was hoping to ride with Leonard from his Blog he may be laid up a while.

Your route is about the same as I rode last year from the KC area, good roads, little traffic.  Unfortunately my recent back surgery has put a damper on the riding for a while.  If I get to feeling like it I may drive over and join in on the Saturday night festivities.
I would encourage anyone to make this rally, riding or hauling it's a great way to meet fellow Bulleteers.

It's less than 2 weeks away.
I advise everyone that's Enfield minded to come to this rally.

It's worth it just for the conversation not to mention the food and tunes.

It is also worth it for the knowledge you can pick up.  I would say you have the opportunity to learn more about Royal Enfields in one weekend than you would on this forum in a month.  And that isn't putting down the forum either.
If you buy guys like t120rbullet a beer they will hold a clinic on most anything you could think of.  If you are like me you learn better when shown than when you have to read how to do something.  There are some great RE roads in that area also.
Unfortunately I won't be attending this year due to my recent back surgery.

I'm sorry to hear your not going to be there Leonard. You've become a fixture at these kind of things. I hope you'll have a speedy/100% recovery and I'll hold that lunch I owe ya until next June.
I'll also drink your share of the beer next week and I'll take some pics of others doing the same.

I was going to challenge you to a duel over that but after thinking it out I realized that I doubt that they will run out so it's pointless. I will get my 10 bucks worth anyway. Looking forward to some pork too.
It's starting to get cold up here, I can't wait to freeze my butt off getting down there.
Don't forget your tent poles, tent and sleeping bag.
