I'll bring my own 100' length of rope. Just hope there's a tree in Sioux Falls that I can tie her to. :ROFL:

Don't know if we'll make it down there on the Wing but we sure want to try and make it there to hang out in the campground ... if we can decide on a unanimous choice!

Yeah, my forks are still on the bike. Thought I might get away with being lazy and not having to make my own tool and tearing the front end apart. So no one's heard where it went last?
