As always, I'll be there. My site is on your left as you stop at registration. Right by the little announcement display case.
Hope to see some of you.

Looks like I might be going now... Was talking to my buddy that we go with every year and he told me it wasn't an option for me not to go... He said he didn't have me light up his bike to pass on the light parade...

Linda and I might go up for a day trip, since it's only 3 hours or so away. Sad to say it's hasn't attracted the numbers it had in the past, but it is a really nice family-oriented event for those who are wavering and have never been.

Bump,, it was our first yr last yr, had a good time, like Cloud 9 said wasnt as many bikes as i expected but most of them were goldwings. That was up in the main parking area, doesnt include all the ones scattered throughout the park in the camping areas though...Lots more there and thats where ours will be too most of the time. Still tryin to decide if gonna be in the parade or not sat night...

This will be our 7th year.. Have seen a steady decline in bikes/venders.. imagine it has alot to do with the economy..

If we go we will be camping by the volleyball courts :waving:

Last year was my first time there and I really enjoyed it. I'll be there on Monday or Tuesday camping probably near the back somewhere. Stop by for a "coke". Looking for rides around IA and a trip to the famous www.gunderburger.com

tmdriver...I have a like new (I would guess 96% like new) Tall (Tulsa?) that the PO had on my 97 1500 Aspencade. He also gave me the original one and I swapped them out. I will PM you and shoot you an offer. Google maps shows you about 250 miles (4 hours) from where I work. I can usually get off by 3:00, so could meet you 1/2 way, realistically by 5:15-5:30 some evening? Or,if I can find a safe way to haul it on the bike I wouldn't mind a weekend drive down 1/2 way. We need to get you on the road! Check your PM. Oh yeah, it has the vent also and the windshieldd is very thick.

I wanted to go but wife has other plans.:whip:

I turn 50 Saturday :birthday:and she wants to have a get together with friends and family on Saturday at my house. Guess I'll be entertaining guest at home.

I went by the manufacturer of Bunkhouse Camper Trailers yesterday in Elk Grove IL and looked at them. They are really nice. I was talking to the owner of the company as he was showing me the trailers and said they were supposed to go but the state of Iowa wouldn't allow out of state venders for RV's and camper trailers so he wouldn't be there this year.

I'm thinking about getting theLX model. $3350 for a new one. End of year clearance for another week at this price.
