Looking forward to the flood run. I usually park accross from Bucks in Mineska and watch the organ doners (crouch rockets) get stupid on hwy. 61. Allways a good show.

Yeah,
That's what we do. Small group of us from Fargo ND . ride down the night before. Sometime we'll ride the FR backwords just to avoid the traffic jam that usually occurs near Maiden Rock or Nelson. In the old days (80's) they used to drag race down 61 and all the spectators were up on the bluffs overlooking Lake Pepin at Bucks. Maybe I'll see you there. I'll probably be on either a tigerstripped shovelhead or a crocodile one.

Hey, welcome! Good to see you over here.

I got the box of mags and the headlight on Friday. FASTEST SHIPPING EVER! I stripped off the headlight dash, and worked out an upside down mount today. The mags were great, too.

Thanks for the welcome guys. Jeb I'm glad you got the package and can use the light. Frosty, P.M. on the Monark thing again, had computer problems lately. I feel like I'm finally home.

What year Indian? Maybe I'll ride mine if I can get my wheels laced by then. I bought a aftermarket set of 18" rims from Germany and I can't get them to true up, so now I'm gonna wait until Starklite has some available in about a month.

The wheels I've been running for the last 10 years are shot. But powdercoating and lacing new ones will take a good week. So not much time. therefore I'll probably be on one of my Shovels. Glad your teaching kids right. I learned most of my foundry work at Jeffereson Junior High in Minneapolis years ago. Because of that, there's thousands of parts on various bikes around the world. I never thought that decades after junior high I'd be making MC parts as a sideline...

Yeah, the Floodrun is always a good time. Even when it rained bigtime last year. We got drenched.
