Exclamation RALLY is CANCELLED!!!!!

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!!!

2017 9th Annual "Buckeye Bash" Labor Day Weekend Rally!!!!!!!!!!!!
September 1st, 2nd, and 3rd...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 Saturday "usually tasty real BBQ" and lots of telling lies and rebuilding bikes from those that crash!!!

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

Alcohol is up to you, but I most certainly encourage it!!! :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!!!!!

I'm in too, but I'm unsure who that "rebuilding bikes from those who crash" statement is for. Those roads sound dangerous.

I got a summer place in upstate NY near Plattsburgh. This would be a great way to burn off some vacation, justify new rubber, see some country, and meet up with members of yet another drinking club who have a motorcycle problem....

There will be multiple selections of bourbons and beer to pick from, for certain.
