I was just like to guage interest in a 2013 gathering in Milwaukee, WI.

Harley's 110th gathering is Friday 8/30/2013 ==> Sunday 9/1/2013.

I would guess peeps arrive Tuesday(8/27/2013) for a Wednesday (8/28/2013) & Thursday (8/29/2013) SouthEast Wisconsin riding then carry through for the 110th various gatherings.

While I am certainly not looking for any type of committment from anyone ... I am just checking on interest.

I have interest, but am lacking commitment.

Kind of like a couple of my marriages . . .

You know we'll be there, however, since you asked, I'd prefer to go to Milwaukee any time OTHER than the anniversary!

How about the last weekend in September....that would coincide with the World Beef Expo!!!!!

You know I'm planning on it buddy. (IMG:http://www.harleyshoptalk.net/forums/style_emoticons/default/thumbsup.gif) I'm not a huge fan of HUGE crowds so I might hang out in your BARn loft and wait out some of the festivities; but we'll cross that road when we come to it. I know we'll have good company no matter what we do.

Were you there?!!!!

I was. Later, at a bar a lady in our group bragged about getting up to the front row! Becky! (IMG:http://www.harleyshoptalk.net/forums/style_emoticons/default/banghead.gif) (IMG:http://www.harleyshoptalk.net/forums/style_emoticons/default/hysterical.gif) Musta been 200 wide leaving the place right after his intro. Some dude a hundred feet or so to my left says, "At least they could have got us an American queer!" (IMG:http://www.harleyshoptalk.net/forums/style_emoticons/default/hysterical.gif)

We were there too. After 3 days of crowds we were debating whether or not to stay late Sunday for the "unannounced special guest". One of the vendors on Sunday afternoon on the fest grounds said they were at the airport when Paul McCartney and Wings got off a private jet and the secret was out. Since I loath Paul the decision was made. We got home in time to see on the news who it was that really showed up. (IMG:http://www.harleyshoptalk.net/forums/style_emoticons/default/hysterical.gif)

Oh well, Joan Jett the night before was worth it...... (IMG:http://www.harleyshoptalk.net/forums/style_emoticons/default/headbang.gif)

And the Doobie Bros., Kid Rock, and Tim McGraw were all good.

Know what you mean, Buck. Weeks before Becky insisted the special guest was the Stones. A quick Google had them in Hamburg Germany the night before. Doable, but not likely! There was all kinds of shit floatin' around! Kinda funny. If it had not been for all the rumors more people probably would have stood still for "Rocket Man".
