Steve Says June 2018

Published on 6/17/2018

Wow, the snow melted and we went straight to summer. 

I’ve been riding nearly everyday to work alternating between the R60/6 and the R1200RT.


The Hiawatha Rally was great from my prospective. When your “working” I think it’s different than when you are a “rally attendee”. Volunteers make it happen, if you were one of them, thank you. I hope all of you had a good time. 


In less than a month many of you will be heading to Des Moines and/or Wellsboro for the national rallies. These are great opportunities to do some riding, meet up with club members and rally friends. I think most of us, after attending a couple of national rallies, have a few friends that we only see once or twice a year.


Diane and I are skipping Des Moines and heading to Wellsboro. We have a route planned that makes a big u shaped curve on a U.S. map. After the rally in PA we are planning to go home through Canada which will make the route a circle. It should be a great trip.

I will write up a ride report and share it.


I spent four days fishing in Canada with my Father, Brother and two friends, another father and son. It was great to spend time with them. Plus we missed the super hot Memorial Day those in Minneapolis had to deal with. 


We had a good meeting this week. Charle Johnson and his friends brought some Airheads to the meeting that were real “eye candy”. 

Thank you again to Greg Fetter for setting it up.


Look for an e-mail with information regarding a Meet to Eat at Lucky’s 13 Pub in Roseville MN

This will be a great time for socializing with fellow club members.

With the National Rally(s) only days away, for those interested, perhaps you can find a riding partner or two.


Get out there and go for a ride, across the country or just for an ice cream cone.
