Looks like myself and Dave R will be coming up from Dallas again this year... looking forward to riding those (mostly) flat roads on our Xstreams, and seeing what's new at the Factory!!!! Dave's got the carbon-fiber prototype, and I'll be on the Ghost...

We're trying to put together a Sunday morning "extra" ride over at Wilson Lake, since there's not one officially on the schedule at the moment. Anybody else like to participate in some hill climbing out there?????

Earlier in the year we considered going, but then they released the schedule that it was no longer on Labor Day weekend and that killed it for us. Plus it is basically just on Saturday now, so cannot justify a 1,050 mile round trip car drive for a one day rally.

We are heading up to the Hostel Shoppe rally in Stevens Point, WI next week. This is a great rally. Lots of vendor displays, demo rides, seminars, good food, and 3 days of riding with 400 bent and trike riders. Also it is a very scenic area to bike ride with rolling terrain and the August weather in that part of Wisconsin is perfect for riding.

Again, for anyone interested in participating, Dave Rothgeb and I (and hopefully others) plan to ride Sunday, repeating last year's tough Wilson Lake ride -- we'll plan to depart from the Wilson Railroad Hotel at 8:30AM, to ride the 35-mile route, followed by lunch at the Hotel. There is also the option to do a somewhat less nasty route, which I'll try to map out as well.

I think we're also going to hit town early enough on Friday to want to do a longer ride before the 2PM Ice Cream jaunt. Post here if you're interested in joining in!

We're changing up the ride plans for Sunday morning -- we're going to do the route from Lucas that we did a couple years ago, instead of riding from the Wilson Hotel. It's still the same distance, basically, but a bit friendlier!!!

So, if anyone wants to join us Sunday morning, we'll roll from Lucas at 8:30AM...


Also, my group of four is arriving Thursday evening, and is considering doing the Cathedral loop route on Friday morning, before anything starts happening at the Factory later that day. If you're interested in joining in, please say so! We'll leave from the Factory, probably 8AMish...

My cell number is 214 690 6781.....

Paul

Paul,

You might want to post your ride itinerary on BROL. I think you will get more views on that board than this one.
