In this poll you can change your vote so you're not stuck with your initial selection.

I'm just curious as to what type of mix we'll have that the Ralley this year. It might influence my selection as to which bike I bring. :bikerthumb:

I'll probably take the SilverWing. Odds are I'll be the only scooter geek. I'll try to brush up on my Italian. :lol:

I will be on the bmw g650gs; or I may decide to cruise on over on my cruiser (C50); one of those decisions I wont make until 1-2 days before the trip.

At this point I haven't fully decided. I've been working on the wing for the past several weeks. It now has a new water pump, battery, mufflers, heat shields and a new seat I made last week. I still need new front brake lines and fork seals. Both of those were replaced just two years ago but have failed and need replaced again.

I want to wring it out a bit before I make the final decision. If things work out well with it I will bring the wing. It's a totally different type of ride from the rebel. It gets about half the mpg as the rebel. And it rides like a tank. I think it weights almost twice a much too.

It's only been on one trip due to my broken knee cap and surgery. So i'm really hoping to take it this year.

The old Silverwing (pre scooter) is great. Actually, the scooter is pretty cool, too. If you are into scooters. I rode one a couple of months ago, just to have a walk on the wild side!

I'll be on my Bonneville. :cycle:
