I wandered up to the VBR in Duluth on the weekend of August 22. I was hoping to meet up with Backroader from here, but I didn't find him. (there were more than 1000 riders there)

Anyway enjoy a pictorial weekend memory..


A few photos of the weekend...

A view from above..


Perfect use for Mr. Happy puppet.


Harbor view from the rally site.


Diesel KLR's



Greg Frasier's KLR


Dinner line


And then there's the Trials riders..









This GUY made me wonder about Trials riders.



But then again, none of them were wearing skunk hats all day..



I and a couple friends wandered down to the harbor on Saturday night and watched a large ship come through, carrying windmill parts..

Bridge down


Bridge up


Bridge doing what it was designed for


Damn fine weekend!!

I was there ! at the VB Ralley

Hey Paper, check out your first photo..

On the upper part of the slide there are 4 tents located at the top of the bunny hill.

The largest tent belongs to Bob, he was from Minniapolis, the smaller yellow tent was Jason from from Duluth, the small light blue tent was mine., directely behind me, was Carl's from Winnipeg.

We had an awsome view of all the eveing festivities..... I would post some pictures, however from what I have seen, I pretty well got the same shots.

I wrote to Areostich and they advised, they are tentively planning a 2013 Rally.

I am in !!!!!

Next time I go, I will come with a phone that has the capability to access the over inflated US cell phone market . Get this ($1.00 per minute plus $1.00 per minute roaming charge) I just wanted to use some air time, not become a major share holder in the Industry.

regards

I thought about heading up the bunny hill, too.. I ended up camping quite a ways back, past the parking area and back into the ski hills.. For some odd reason, other campers in the area mentioned loud "bear like" noises in that area, but I never heard anything.. :)

I'm sorry I missed it. I had intended to go, but couldn't spare the time. Were there any good deals? I heard they were having some merchandise on sale.

Did you go to any of the presentations?

Truthfully, I didn't (gulp) need anything, so I didn't shop much.. I had all plans of getting to several of the presentations, but ended up BSing with others instead..

Wasn't hard to find a BS session outside. :)
