Heading up to Milwaukee tomorrow

Just got a call from the boss. They need me to drive up to Milwaukee tomorrow and pick up a stainless steel mesh belt for a pretzel cooker. Then turn around and drive back to Indiana and deliver it to a Frito Lay plant in Frankfort, IN. Whew... long drive ahead of me, I know as I've been up there working several times.

Might have to stop in Uke's Harley Davidson as I pass it just south of Milwaukee. Maybe see if they know more about the 500/750's release date.

If you can find out anything on the Street 750 & 500 that would be sweet, might not be anything on print that you can get but they'll probably be able to tell you what to expect.

Well I have to apologize, I was unable to stop at either Uke's or Racine HD.

I got caught up in the end of rush hour traffic right around O'Hare this morning, 294 just came to a standstill. So I was running late even though I ...ahem... drove above the posted 55 mph. I was getting calls from the service techs back in Indiana wanting to know "where are you, when do you think you'll be here", etc... Again, sorry if I got your hopes up, major fail on my part.

On the way home I was driving 70-75 mph which is 25 and 30 mph over the speed limit on 294 and was still getting run over. Those people are freaking crazy up there!

Sorry everybody...

I came the closest to going to Racine HD. Driving by Uke's HD I never could quite figure out how to get to it even though it's right beside the Interstate.

Racine HD was, turn right off the exit ramp and 4 miles straight to the dealership. I purposely drove faster to gain some time but the sitting on 294 killed me. I drove like a madman coming home to get to the bakery in Frankfort and ended up getting stuck about 200 yards from the entrance by a train for about 30 minutes... I couldn't seen to catch a break yesterday.

Oh well, ended up with 4.5 hours overtime. Might just have to go in my Street 500 fund.
