Party Day 2

We're a couple days behind here on account of a dead phone yesterday and a whole lot of testing. The Wednesday post just made it up earlier today, and Thursday was a total wash. We are waiting out a storm at Wendy's a mile or 2 from the powertrain facility in Menomonee Falls, so I have some time to bring everything up to date.

We were kinda surprised/disappointed Wednesday that the city and hotel parking lot were not overrun with bikes like we had seen in the past. Things picked up Thursday and again today, and there are pockets where the rumble is constant, but this definitely is not the 100th or 105th. Thursday morning we went to the H-D Museum, then to the Summerfest grounds, where we caught Lynyrd Skynyrd, Blue Oyster Cult, and Bret Michaels. This morning we hit the gym, cleaned the bikes up again, and got a kind of late start. First stop was the powertrain facility, a demo ride of a 2014, and a quick dash to this table at Wendy's. We were planning to hit a dealer party down the road, then meet some local friends who hosted us on a trip a couple years ago, and hit a street party. We're re-evaluating at the moment, with our priorities being keeping ourselves dry and the bikes clean, in that order.

One looks likely at this point; the other doubtful. We'll let you know how that works out for us.
