For reasons we can discuss around the fire, I'm coming to Rally from Miami. The direct route takes me through Atlanta - clearly something I DO NOT want to do. Any one have any suggestions on best way to avoid ATL? Thanks Duncan

Take 95 to Savannah, jump on US 17, take it to Taccoa Ga, get on US 441 to US 74 in NC west to US 28 to Iron Horse. Its longer but a nice ride.

that is a nice route, we usually take that on the ride home.

We take 95 to 26 to get us there on the way up, traffic is not too bad and once you get past Columbia it's a nice ride
Duncan when are you heading out, if your passing through are area when we are leaving out you could tag along

Well, that was the plan but I'm not so sure now. I was working on the rig with the help of a friend. I buttoned things up and suddenly there is nothing, nada... No electricity. The battery, which was fine all day is suddenly completely gone. I put it on the charger and we'll just see in the morning. It's way too heavy to put on the trailer if it isn't running. TLMaryann and I are still coming, even if it's without a rig.

I hope all is OK with it. it would be a shame to have to leave it.

Well, I'm on the road without a sidecar. It appears that our little wiring job fried the Motoronic unit. We're coming anyway... see all you all on Thurday PM.

Ace, Robin & I will be up at IronHorse Friday mid-afternoon. Robin has been watching the weather forecast for the weekend, and it seems to change on an hourly basis. My perspective, carry the rain suit, hope for the best, and twist the throttle. Although, if it is raining, we may stay off the Interstate and stick to two lane highways. I hate roadspray and fools doing 80 on wet roads. Looking forward to the weekend and seeing everyone again.

we got in late Sunday from the rally. had a great time and got to see friends from last years rally and meet some new friends
I got a few pictures but haven't had a chance to look at them yet. I didn't seem to get very many with riders on their rigs for some reason
couldn't have asked for better weather, it was a rainy and gloomy Thursday until the afternoon but it was great after that
