Romney Ride - who is really coming?

Note to moderator: I started a new thread because I lost the ability to update the first post of the original thread. The attendees list was hard to find in the original thread. I wanted to make it easy for people to see who is coming.

It's just a little more than 3 weeks, so time to get a better idea of the headcount. Over the months we've had more than 40 people say there were possibly going to attend. Now we need to let Romney Cycles know how many they should prepare to host. I've pasted the "possible" headcount below. Please post here to confirm you are still planning to attend. I'll make the updates below. If you have no idea what I'm talking about click here to see the info on the event. Then join us.

It will also be helpful to know your plans and interest. Post up if you're planning to camp vs motel, and if you are interested in the twisty pavement group ride, the dirt road group ride, or non-group.

I'm definitely coming and will be camping. As for group ride, I'll say twisty with the possibility of dirt (depending on the route/ terrain).

Added a third group ride. It will be a mix of twisties and dirt.

I guess I won't be going after all. My passport is expired and your government won't let me in your country without one.

Sorry to hear that.



By the way...for anyone considering the dirt group ride we have added a second, pavement/dirt ride. Since there is another option I am going to make mine a more technical ride, which I personally would not have tackled on either my old Vee or Wee. Not to worry, I believe the other pavement/dirt ride will be regular dirt roads and not a problem for any dual sport bike.

I will probably limit my ride to 6 people. If you're still curious this video shows some of the uglier stuff I'm planning.

I just picked up a KTM adventure which seems more suitable to the dirt ride.. If I have it set up in time maybe I will ride that down instead... Otherwise I will be on the wee and always listen to the locals advise and will do the dirt road/twisty ride instead....

In that case, I'll switch to the pavement/dirt ride.
