Exclamation 8th annual Laborday camp and RIDE!!!!

Back yet again by popular demand...and due to the great turn out we have every year...I'm proud to announce...it's on!!!

2016 8th Annual "Buckeye Bash" Labor Day Weekend Rally!!!!!!!!!!!!
September 2nd, 3rd, and 4th...Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.

11030 LAKE ROAD
MILLERSPORT, OH 43046

This will not be a Stromtrooper Specific Rally, although more Stroms are always there than any other bike model.

My Buddy Glen who we host at his amazing property does own a V-Strom "my old 1000", but we are still not calling this a V-Strom specific rally. All that really matters is good friends are getting back together to enjoy a common interest...RIDING and friendship!!! I can assure everyone that pirates and squids won't be there. :mrgreen:

This is going to be run the same as every year...arrive Friday afternoon/evening, rides will take place on Saturday "typically leave between 9/10 am", cook out Saturday night, depart whenever you feel like it on Sunday........even leave Monday on Labor Day if needed.

Food: Something easy Friday night...probably order Pizza or grill burgers and dogs...whatever...

Light breakfast consisting of coffee, pancakes, some kind of donuts and sausage will be provided Saturday and typically on Sunday.

Lunch on Saturday will depend on who you're riding with...basically you're on your own...or wherever the group decides to stop.

Cook out "usually tasty real BBQ" and Bon Fire Saturday night.

Basic Beverages will be provided....water, pop, etc...

Alcohol is up to you!!! :biggrinjester:

Accommodations:

There is plenty of Camping area and on site bathroom and shower facilities. There are also a few local Hotels "but book early due to the local sweetcorn Festival".

Every year everyone is more than gracious chipping in money for the food and beverages served during the event...so instead of charging people a fee...we'd like to keep things as they have worked...feel free to DONATE to the hosts if you're eating/drinking!!!

I love putting this on, and we always have such a great time riding and reminiscing with old friends while making new ones. Weather is typically in our favor, but can still be pretty hot in Ohio. We have some amazing riding in Ohio for those of you that are not aware, and we hit some of the best roads the buckeye state has to offer. So I hope we have a great turnout this year, please use the poll to give me an idea for a headcount, so I know as to how much food to have. THANKS.......and really looking forward to this!!!!!

Always a great event with great company and great roads to ride on!

Sadly, the deal Sandy and I made means we are only able to come every second year so we will have to wait until next year. (She has a family event the alternate years.)


See you next year!

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.

I'll be there! Got a sweet adventure ride already laid out and tested (thanks to the dust-eating crew who rolled behind me last weekend).
