Anyone interested in going? I haven't rode with dirt dad in a few years. Sounds like a fun weekend.

Probably some of us would go if it wasn't in conflict of our Annual Spring V Strom Gathering. Perhaps even more would go if it was 1 weekend later specialy 1 week after there is East V Strom meet at Iron Horse in NC. Just take one week off and have a greate 2 weekends of riding one after another. Maybe we should suggest it to our friends from WV...

No I don't think it's a good idea to ask him to change the date of an event to suite a couple people.

I'm going , it was one of the high points of my riding season last year . We actually camp out behind the dealership in a huge , manicured field . They even built heated showers for us !

The town of Romney is quaint and welcoming , the people are very nice, and the roads are AMAZING .

Last year , they blamed me for bringing the ( very cold ) weather with me , so a few more Canadians to bear the blame would be welcome .

I rode home with a cat from Buffalo , on the fastest KLR650 in captivity , till we got split up on a coffee quest in the middle of nowhere ...

Not all my lucid moments are consecutive .

If the weather is reasonable I'm in +1 or perhaps 1 or 2 more.

Count me in, I guess it depends on the weather if we camp or hotel it

Is this 'Gathering' the one that began in Barrie in 2013. If so, what is the schedule for 2014? I'd like to keep the date open.
Thanks

Yes that's the one, but it did not began in 2013. It started few years ago. Just last 2 years it took place on the first weekend of May. Meeting point Barrie, ON. I have not heard about it for this year yet.

April is too early in the year for this old fossil to ride from Florida to Ontario.
I know because I have done it two times, and that is enough.

So if the Spring Ride is May 4 2014, I will try to make it.
Canada Fever strikes me earlier and earlier each year.
This time it is biting hard already, and winter is only one-third through.
