Wilson took the Cave City Rally on the tail end of a city parade. :ROFLMAO: It wasn't planned to be that way...

Remember 2019... we got caught up in a funeral at the bottom of the Triple Nickel, where it seemed like the whole of the County had turned out, and were parking their cars on one side of the road, then streaming across the road to the graveyard on the other side. I believe it was Jim that eventually negotiated our release. I believe it was David that was gunning the engine of his 450 that had a wicked backfire. I think they were happy to let us go! Just one memory of a good day. Thanks for planning and leading that one, Guba!

Thanks for the "heads up"! Just an evil thought... is there a PARADE??? (wherever two or more Rebels are gathered, there's an opportunity to crash the nearest parade!)
There is a parade, but it would be hard to crash on the Rebels. It is a sternwheel parade. I'm not sure the motorcycles could float with the paddlewheels.

The new 1100 Rebel can be ordered with DCT - depth control transmission. That would take care of the floating thing, but I don't know of a model that comes equipped with paddlewheels. I know the 250s have all been spoked. Maybe paddlewheels are an option on the 1100. We may have to keep the older Rebels on dry land, and just send the new models to the parade.

Jim Wilson mentioned the AMA Hall of Fame in Pickering. Looks like a great place for a ride, or a rain day excursion, or even catching on the way home. Anybody know of a good quiet road route from Lake Hope?

Mark there isn't really a direct off highway route. It takes 2 hours to get there on Rt33, any route off the highway will definitely be a slow one, with a lot of zig zags.

Thanks, Guba. I don't think 33 would be much fun on a Rebel, but lots of zig zags sounds like a good ride. I was thinking of it for a second full day ride, or maybe a stop on the way home, instead of the annual pilgrimage to the Iron Pony.
