September 21, 2013  1:00 AM - Note From Sheldon:

James is at the rally but poor me wasn't able to break away to make the trip, so I'm stuck at home in WisconSIN wishing I were there.  To make matters worse he's started sending me photos.  I'm sure just to rub it in...  So if you too are stuck at home and in front of the computer, here are what he's sent so far:

More bikes showed up after dinner, quite a few more, but with it raining and dark I decided not to photograph them until morning. There are now about 15 KS601s, two KS750s, three KS600s, one K500, some early 2-strokes, and about 20~30 Bella scooters and more are expected tomorrow. The beer has never stopped. Endless water bottles. ~~ James

These photos comprise those bikes that were here as of Friday dark. More came in after sundown and many more will arive today. Will send photos as I can. Having such a great time I will even enjoy the great time allottment you passed up. The host is serving a home cooked breakfast for all participants this morning. So far only one guest has had an accident. He got t-boned by a local. Fortunately he was in a rented auto and escaped unscathed. More when I know it.

It would be difficult to call the rally anything but successful. A little rain but mostly perfect weather. There were 56 motos, 2-strokes, and scooters, one green Zundapp belt, one sewing machine, one outboard motor, and  one Zundapp lawnmower here for show. Add to that six more motos around the grounds for sale. Only one accident the entire weekend and that was off the grounds and at an intersection where a guest got t-boned in a rental car. The poor car suffered major bruising, however the guest was unharmed. There were two war elephants, three KS600s, a K500, around 17 KS601s, a Norma, a DB201, a Comfort, a DB202 scrambler, three Super Sabres and a Trophy Sabre,and 27 Bellas, give or take a a few. Those that missed this event have missed a great one. Everybody I talked to is looking forward to a repeat next year. There were over a hundred guests at the rally, quite a few having come without their motos, but vowing not to make the same mistake next year. Thank you Kevin Johnson for hosting one great and successful Zundapp Treffen in 2013.
