The '09 Rumble - It's On!!!

On Tuesday I posted a video showing some of last year's Rumble on Route 66 because it looked really cool. I mentioned that if Annabelle was going to be up and running in time, I would love to go up to the Rumble. Then I got comments from Dave, Willy D, and BB about coming out to AZ for this run. I'd like to take a moment and address those three personally here: Dave: Poor, broke dumb-asses...that's what you called yourself...is ALL I hang out with, so you're more than welcome. In fact, we'd love to have you here! WillyD: You are a champion of a friend, offering to kick Dave in the ass to help him get out here. :) BB: You said that Dave & WillyD can only come out on one condition, that you come too. That goes without question, as you are their ticket in, baby! :) And you also said there was a 75% chance that you guys would all be coming out for this run. WillyD just upped it to an 87.036% chance. So I guess it's looking good. The update on Annabelle, if I may be so bold, is that she should be up and running in a week or two at the most. So we won't be plugging in the regulator (or not) just before we leave for Williams. :) I'm not sure if we're getting a room or camping yet, but either way it will be pretty cheap. This year, there is a $10/person entry fee for the whole weekend, which isn't bad at all, and everyone has to bring a 'biker-themed' item for the raffle. Here is the flyer for the event. Registration is on-site Friday Noon - 7:00pm and Saturday 8am - 2pm. If anyone else wants to meet up in Peoria and ride up with us, let us know!

You said that B.B. was our ticket in. So I guess our biker-themed item for the raffle is covered. B.B. it looks like you’re a raffle prize! And the bidding starts at…

Alright...sometimes a man just has to do what a man has to do.

This man has to get the hell out of here for a couple of days. It's a done deal unless tramp somehow goes f'in it up.

I wish I could surprise you all with a cameo appearance at this run, but this time it's just not in the cards. As you all know we're sort of teetering on a precipice out here right now, but even if that wasn't going on I probably still wouldn't be able to.

I can't complain though. With Sturgis, I'll still have made 2 cross-country trips in '09, even though I cheated on one of 'em and flew. I'll be with you all in spirit and I know you'll have a kick-ass time.

Ann: Make sure to take some of my kinda pictures to cheer me up, will ya??? :)

B.B. said...

I'm working on the details, I will email you this weekend with a definate. :) I'm so excited I might just go to the mall and shit myself! LOL

Woo Hoo! Sounds like party time is brewing here.

Dave... you need this! Go!!
Willy D... Kick his butt all the way there if you have to.
BB... You go gurl! You're the hot ticket in!!

I'm expecting some great pics and good stories to come out of this.

Ann and Big D... ya'll have got in going on!! Your like freakin' magnets.

AZ is the place to be! Woo Hoo!

Lady Ridesalot said...

I can't spell worth a sh#t! I meant, "got IT going on!" LOL!

I know you'll have a blast! I'll be thinking about you all partying out there in AZ! Are you sure you all can't make Sturgis? PRETTY PLEASE!!!! :)

Ann said...

WillyD: I don't think Dave will put BB up for a raffle prize. And if he would, I wouldn't! Sorry!

Dave: Woo-hoo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Joker: I totally understand, and you will be with us in spirit. There will be stories and pics abound when we return! And I'll email you some 'special' pics. :)

BB: Looking forward to your email. I might go shit myself at the mall, too! LMFAO!!!!!!!!!

LadyR: I so wish you could be there! We're biker magnets here in AZ, what can I say?

Steph: Not sure if you've spoken to Joker lately, but there will be NO Sturgis run for Big D this year without me, and I can't go. Next year is a good possibility, though.

Kim Thomas said...

I love a good rumble

Willy D said...

I hope this doesn’t turn into a trip to some mall just to watch people shit themselves. Do I need to pack diapers for you two? Ann and B.B.

Ann said...

mq: You are more than welcome to join us for a run any time! We're in Peoria, and we'd love to have you out to visit!

Kim: Rumbles rock!

WillyD: LMFAO!!!!! No diapers necessary, but when the jack & cokes start going down like water, maybe a depends would be satisfactory! :)

mq01 said...

mq01 said...

i had a brain fart and meant to include ...likewise, if you're ever out this way!!!

IowaHarleyGirl (Stephanie) said...

That stinks Ann! Wish you and Big D could make it! That would be more then a blast! I think we are going to California next year but who knows...that's a long way away.

Ann, I've had computer issues and personal issues, but I would like to come to the Rumble. I'm not sure what day or days I can make it. I will have to let you know.
