Exclamation Big B's Labor day weekend rally 2013!!!!!

Just putting a feeler out for this, because once again.....it is on. I am going to be working with Ohioriders to see what kind of a joint venture or sponsorship we can do "don't worry no pirates or squids will be attending". I hope the weather is good this year, last year was a washout and only a few HARDCORE guys came. So it looks like Friday August 30th is when you jokers can start coming in, and of course there are those that are welcome to stay and camp through Labor Day. Best part is I HAVE A VSTROM AGAIN........WOOHOO!!!!! I will have one of the mods allow me to make changes to this thread as the time gets closer and as I get a potential headcount going forward. I know that several Ohio folks are gonna be coming from the Ohioriders forum, they ride in whatever weather is given to us. So lets set the feeler in motion.

Are Canadians still welcome after all the crashing?
From VEE to C14 to VEE. The C14 too big for your tight roads?
Can't commit to yor ride this early but I love those roads. Still based out of Glenn's plan?

My intent is to come but I can't get close to commiting until I check with work stuff as we have a bunch of training going on in August and that could make it impossible to get away.

If I come I am hoping my new bride will ride down as well.

..Tom

My Opinion:
Vee or V= DL1000 before 2014
Vee2 or V2 = DL1000 2015 to 2019
Vee3 or V3 = DL1050 2020 to?

My Stroms:
2006 DL650: 202,000 km 125,500 miles, Sold
2012 DL650 139,500+ km, 86,700+ miles. Sold
2015 DL1000 New July 2015 205,000+ km, 127,000+ miles.

This can help preventing from cars pulling out in front of you (SMIDSY)
SMIDSY detailed report.

The more Canadians the better!!! And I found out that I just much prefer lighter, slower, less powerful, less to break if dropped, and overall comfort. Yeah it still at Glen's place, he has such a great place to host this. Hope you can make it!

Hey Brian,

Good to know you regained your good sense! I am 50/50 as I am scheduled to work that Saturday and they are always a bitch to trade off. However, I will be having my own rally the week of July 29th, making Marietta, OH my base camp for the week and bombing down all the awesome roads in the area. Feel free to join any and all.

It's good to see you around here more often.

Would love for you to make it, but seems like you are always working that holiday weekend. I will try to hook up with you for a day down in Marietta, looks like that is the only way I will get to see you and ride with you. :mrgreen:
