Update

Spent half a day at the rally site. Roundup moved to large, open, flat, grassy field adjacent to Harley dealership. Walked it today. Much better ground with lots of open space for spectators. For the show judging all rigs to be lined up in nice grassy area leading to store. Great visibility from a major four lane about a half mile off Interstate 10. Hauled the raffle loot I had on hand to the shop. Well over $500 in merchandise. Have more promised.

Spent rest of day between Billoxi and Mobile, AL. Contacted 8 dealers. One gave helmit and dew rag. Two have merchandise to be picked up next week. Harley Owner Groups in La, MS and AL to have folks at rally. Now if I can get a couple of sidecars (besides my two) here we just might have us a show.

As they say in the Army: HOOAH!

Hope your weren't hurt too bad by the flooding. Baby Girl and I had planned to spend a couple of days next week camping at Grand Isle. May not be such a great idea.
Looking forward to meeting you also. Let's try to get some networking going here. Would be great to visit with others close enough for a one day run.
Thanks much for spreading the word. If we all keep trying, this might be a really good event that could evolve into something even better.

Later

I hate to show my ignorance...but what exactly is meant by the sidecar "monkey"? What is the "monkey" supposed to be?

I apologize. I was attempting to interject some humor into the discussion and did not intend to have fun at anyone else's expense. "Monkey" to my understanding is a slang term used to refer to the passenger in a sidecar. I do not know where the term originated but have heard and seen it in writing many times when communicating with other sidecar enthusiasts. I do not think there is any negative connotation connected to the term. I sometimes refer to my 14 year old daughter as my monkey.

Your attachment was very enlightening. Here, I must admit I was ignorant of many of the details in the article. Thanks.

Picked up items for the raffle from two more dealers today. At retail prices, this puts us at just over $1,000 in merchandise to be raffled off at the rally. If we could raise that much for the children's hospitals it would be great. Hope to get a lot of positive exposure from the event. Might even recruit a couple of new members. By the way, Will - I got the box of "Sidecarist" magazines and will have a table set up at the rally with mags, trifolds, etc. Unfortunately, don't think I will be able to man the table full time. Suspect there is going to be a lot of last minute coordination to be done.



Got my Yamaha/Velorex realigned nicely and it will be there. Cruised it at 65 today with no problems. Pushing hard to get the Enfield fender painted and the car pinstriped to match the bike by then. Think we just might have us a show......

Great!! I am glad that you have the Sidecarists to hand out. Don't worry about "manning" the table. You might find a volunteer to handle that for you. I am excited to see how things are coming together for you.

Mike....not sure if the Ural throttle body mods will be done in time for me to ride it down so as of now I am beginning to think I will be riding in on two wheels. I hope that is ok....a good excuse for a 7.5 hour ride for me either way and I can still help out Saturday if I don't drown in the rain expected Friday night. Looking forward to meeting you.

Mike, I am sorry, I had to make a weather decision given the storms moving through Alabama and Mississippi today and after last night I just was not up for long hours of riding in the rain. I am but going to make it down.
