    It was a pleasure to meet you as well, Cory. I think I detect a little beardage envy in the crowd, eh?
    Here is a list of events that I am planning on this summer, if you make it to any of them knock on the door of the black Work-N-Play camper and I promise I'll have a beer.

    National MC Museum, Anamosa IA, June 7 & 8
    Viking Chapter Nat'l Meet, St. Paul MN, June 13 - 15
    AMA Vintage MC Days, Lexington OH, July 11 - 13
    AMCA Wauseon Nat'l Meet, Wauseon OH, July 18 - 20
    Chief Blackhawk Int'l Meet, Davenport IA, August 28 - 30
    And in the fall, if I can get off work, Barber Vintage Festival, October 10 - 12, Birmingham AL

    Am I missing any?

    Thanks Chuck. It was a sidecar thread on Advrider where I first saw Cory's ad.

But the result was my dream EL and meeting a guy who is still a friend and whose bike (he owned it for some 40 years) I treasure.

    My experience at customs was similar. I'd called in advance and other than the customs guys all wanting to ride it and joking that they needed to impound it until Spring so they could check out its road-worthiness... Customs was a walk. If it's made in USA... it comes back to USA no charge.

    So your posts were not only fun to read, but brought back good memories. Again, thanks!

    Cheers and look forward to your build.

    Glad you enjoyed the posts. I may have worried too much about the border crossing. I've crossed quite a few, and it all comes down to who's guarding the gate when you get there, and which side of the bed they got up on that morning. Usually it goes pretty smooth, but I could tell you some stories.

    The Pan and the LE are still here. No plans at this point for that to change.

    Looks like you forgot Dixon..... That's a pretty impressive line up nonetheless! I don't know if I'll make it south this year, but if I do, I'll be watchin' for ya!

    "Beardage envy".... that's a good one. I don't know though.... in the last two weeks I've had two different people ask me if I was trying to look like the Duck Dynasty guys. The beard may have to go. It's more of a winter thing anyway.

    Dixon would be a three day drive for me. Maybe it's worth it though?

    I hear that chicks dig Duck Dynasty... besides, is summer in BC even worth shaving for? Maybe if it falls on a weekend...
