We're ticket and issue free and don't see that changing. We have a great reputation and the locals know that we aren't a booze cruise.

In fact both of the local county water patrols all sit and wave at us as we go by. So no worries!

I did not have one issue with the water patrol in 04. The run stayed south of Red Wing and was a lot of fun. The exhaust, as you see it now, is extremely quiet, as it is under water at idle and is between the drives, so the noise does not radiate to the side and it points downward.

Sorry, I didn't mean to cause a stir. So, between which two points does the LJPR run?

sounds good you guys...the LJPR is a great run, great people and nothing beats running the Mighty Mississippi river. Plenty of spectators on the beaches watching the boats motor bye.

We'll be running from Wabasha down to the Alma WI lock for lunch at the Pioneer (Kellog backwaters). Then up to the south end of Lake Pepin for a card and grand prix start then to the top of Lake Pepin for another card. Then down the lake to the Pickle Factory in Pepin WI for a card and refreshments. Then back to Wabasha for the car and bike show and the end of the run and party.

I hope you can join us!

We have a 43 so we should be good at the ramp.
