I'm looking to ride somewhere within 5 or 6 hundred miles for my 4 day weekend. Wouldn't have to be Rebel Rousers, but I'm not interested in all that Harley and ABATE stuff. Here on the MS gulf coast, there are six seperate HrAB events, that I know of, within fifty miles!

Anybody know of something smaller, prefer camping, could be Honda, or BMW, or all bikes, or I'd even crash a Vulcan rally if I had to. For you Helen people, you can tell I'm really setting a low bar here! Ha Ha just having fun, you know who you are! :D

Help me, please, or I'll go ride crazy, and nobody wants to see that!

Thanks

Will

Don't know of any meets or rides that would fit your location or criteria.

Now .. if you want to ride 18 hrs and 1100 miles to the Meadville area above Pittsburgh PA, we can offer you a place to set up a tent .. or a spot inside on the floor to sleep.

Nice people up there .. although we haven't made contact to see if anyone else would be in town besides us yet.

Hey, that sounds Great! I'll ride two 600 mile days on the slab, pull in, say hello, and crash on the floor, then get up and ride two more 600 mile superslab days, and end up right where I started! WooHoo! Now That's what I call a good Fourth!

Really, though, it does sound great. I've never been in that area, even driving, much less riding. I've heard all good things, from you and many others! I'd love to get up there one day!

I may ride out to my FLIB's place. He's been inviting me for years and it's never worked out.

He's not far from me--wouldn't be much of a ride for me ;0) It's in southern DE.

DE is pretty far for me. Probably 7 or 8 hundred miles, Helen was right at 500. I'm on the MS gulf coast.
