Must look pretty good, considering what those roads do for creating perma-grin!   ;D ;D ;D

If you have an accident on a motorcycle, it's always your fault. Tough call, but it has to be that way. You're in the right, and dead -on a bike. The principle is not to have any accident. If you're involved in an an accident, it's because you did not anticipate. Then, by default, you failed.

I am currently lining up the services of a BBQ catering service for one dinner during the week.  I won't commit to it until I hear from those attending if they would be interested in such an event.  You can look up the outfit here:  www.jrsgrill.com

Thought a big dinner we could all attend would be a fun thing to do one evening.  Let me know if you're interested!

I gotta know what's in this punch and pie.  Cause it sounds like you gotta monkey on your back.  Is the pie anything like Uncle Herb's Special Brownies?

Probably right out of the Alice B. Toklas Cookbook.   :D

Haven't heard from the BBQ guy yet but I figure he'll be in touch Wednesday.

that would be a new record indeed.

2006 Fall CROV had 12 Visions attend with photos to prove it. If I could figure out how to put pictures on the site I'd pot one.

Awe, looks like no one east of the Missouri River is coming, oh well, to bad, so sad, we will send you pictures!

Well now to think of what I need to do to the V yet so it will hopefully go 2000 miles with no problems. I think I'm about there, however as much as I hate dumping $12.00 of Yama lube (with only a few hundred miles on it), I am going to change it early as I worry I picked up some metal from my fly wheel rubbing against the case. I'm going to go back to a 20w-50 semi syn as I had in last summer. I also need to change my anti-freeze and I will re-scyn the carbs (nice to do as I have my own manometer). Hope my brake line comes in yet. I'm also talking to another ROV member about a seat exchange (but we need to see what the shipping costs will be yet).

I'm getting excited, for me this is sort of a "the stars and planets have lined up just right" situation !  Hopefully it will be a prelude to a get together in a future year with some of our eastern and Canadian friends???

Don, not to say you shouldn't sync your carbs... you should if they need it... but

expect your Vision to run differently when you get to Colorodeo...

unless of course, you have the external latitude and altitude adjustment upgrade   ::)
when I got back down from OnRov, SmokeBomb started behaving lots mo better.  :)

we should pre-buy some larger air jets that can be swapped for those attending from lower elevations.

I figure all I can do is get it as well tuned as possible before I go. I understand it will most likely run differently up in the mountains-lets just hope its not to drastically different! After all, I didn't see a pool mentioned at the Condo's H2O has for us!
