2019 Eastern V-Strom Rally....Stecoah, NC.....May 16-19

In case any Canadians have missed it the V-Strom rally at the Ironhorse is on may 16-19. It looks like there will be a strong attendance of Canadians there this year.

i haven't been down for a few years but always really enjoyed it. I'm going down for sure (but not looking for a riding partner as I am either stabbing it down in one day or if my wife comes taking two days and riding with her.) @PhilStrom and crew (the "Foreign Legion) are heading down.


Thread about the event is here:

Yup absolutely! I have Sunday and Monday to get home and would happily ride with you!

If you wanted to stretch your return out longer it wouldn't surprise me if there are a number of Canadians extending their time in the USA (I usually would be trying to bank some time for other longer rides this year.)

Excellent! Could always call an audible on Sunday. I appreciate it!

This year I'm only taking a 2 week vacation with the family, not the typical 4 week crazy adventure. Last year we pulled the van, kids, and trailer across Newfoundland. This year we are renting a cottage in PEI, and I'm pulling a bike trailer out to ride PEI, the Cabot trail and the east coast of Nova Scotia. 2 weeks in a cottage is too much for me... so I'm breaking it up with some rides. Gonna bring the tent and enjoy some solo time.
