Eastern Vstrom Rally

Anyone from Ontario planning on attending 2017 Eastern Vstrom Rally in N.C Friday May 19 - Sunday May 21
The Iron Horse Campground/Lodge
I would be interested in sharing the cost of a room and enjoy your company.
I'm 63, I prefer secondary hwys on the way down and back I like 6-700 kms a day.
I will ride my 2010 Wee providing my new Corbin seat does the trick as I know my stock seat is only comfortable for 20 mins. or so, other wise it will be my HD
Let me know if your interested

Thanks
Tim

Tim, I won't be going - so have fun and good luck on getting your seat in time. If you need any routes getting down there and back via secondary roads, let me know and I'll post some up for you. I usually ride longer than 6-700kms, but at least you will have some great roads to check out and incorporate into your route.

Enjoy your ride, Tim. The only specific guidance I can offer is simply this:
Avoid the Ambassador Bridge. This is a teeny constraint, and may guide you to the International bridge from Soo-to-Soo or the Blue Water Bridge at Sarnia, or even the Peace Bridge to Buffalo. Each of these is fine. The problem I have encountered at the Ambassador is the same, again and again: INCOMPETENCE coupled with total unconcern for politeness, expediency, or a pleasant attitude. My dog's kibble was confiscated, reason refused. I got an Ohioan's documents back with mine. I was questioned for an hour, on December 24 fer goodness sake.

And don't use the tunnel instead; motorcycles are forbidden there. Again, reason unstated.

Good luck!
Keith

Thanks guys for the info, all good stuff to remember
I've had my share of difficulties crossing the boarder, however for the most part it's been good except for the long line ups, my air cooled HD hates them, but no worries with the "wee" in that department
Unless a willing partner shows up soon and has a room chances are slim that I will partake as I only heard of it a few days ago.
I will plan for next year.
