    I had planned on going to Boogie Bottoms in Alabama that weekend. I'll have to see what the weather is doing that weekend before I decide for certain.

    I did get it installed and it works great. I can set it as low as 30 mph and it will pull all day. Great mod to have.

    Scott, I can take off Friday and ride down but don't know if Bob can. I may wait and ride down with him Saturday. We will both most likely be bringing the wives along with us. Bob for sure, I have to talk mine into it!

    Talked to Bob and he will be riding down Saturday like I thought. That will work well for me since my brother in law will be off also. I tried to check this out online but got last years info. Which hotel is hosting this year?

    If this is the event I'm thinking it was...key word was.... it has been cancelled due to lack of participation (last email I had gotten anyhow). There is a similarly named event at MS Coast HD on 4/28 tied to the Muscular Dystrophy ride...


    Not that we won't enjoy seeing more X's here on the coast, but...don't want you to feel cheated.
