OMSLAW, myself and others are riding up to Des Moines Iowa this Sunday to meet up with GSXTacy and some others. Last time we met up at hooters, went for a group ride, back to hooters for some Chiefs football before heading home. Had a great time. Who would be interested in going? How about it WWJD, fstbusa, HOOKEN203, the Omaha gang and you Kansas City area riders. Chime in and let us know if you would like to go with us. The weather is going to be great and I'm sure it will be a great time.

That sounds like a blast. Like semi, we already have plans too. I'm sure you guys will have enough fun for the rest of us.

Since the KC gang won't have to deal with rain this time, I would like to be at the same Hooters as last time in the 10:30 - 11:00 am range. That should give us time to take a ride , and meet back up at Hooters for a while. That should give you time to get back home to your game. Hope you make it.

I'd be there, but I don't have enough rubber left after the Meet and Greet and the Busa Bash to get there and back. New tires are ordered, but won't be here in time for this.

OK. I watched the turbo video. You now must come on Sunday so I can see the 2nd turbo busa in Des Moines. I'm assuming you've seen the red one?
