Buckeye's going to SD in June?

Thought we might start a regional list of folks going to the national get together in SD in June. I suppose it also makes sense to know of those traveling through our fair state from the east. Perhaps we can meet up.

I will originate from Lorain Ohio, along the lake.

I am jazzed for this event!

Myself and Weezel are going, we may trailer to western Nebraska saving body mind and tires on boring interstate 80. We are also doing Wyoming and Colorado.

I might try and make it our as our family Vac. this year. Not sure yet gotta see how spring treats this farming family. Will be towing trailers if we do, Wife & 3 kids.

Might try the Easter event in NC, but probably can't afford both. I am a slave to the weather for my living, have to see what it gives me.

My ride will probably only be one way with other Strommers making the pilgrimage as I also am making this my vacation by flying my wife out for a few days in the area together. I am sure my plans will morph as it gets closer, but I plan to beat feet to get out there, enjoy the rides and time with my wife anf the other Stromtroopers, and then ride home back to to northern Oh ho ho at a more leasurly pace, seesing some sights along the way. Currently the plan is to spend about 12 days without 4 wheels and away from home.

I look forward to meeting you Kap. You were the first to welcome me back when I joined last may. You too Mr. Maze......

Having lunch with a customer next week who rides to Sturgis from my area every year. Gonna get some route advice and a list of his "must see" places.

My Blue Beast is just about farkled up and ready for the jaunt except I have a few electrical things to mount and wire. My aux front end lights, the Stebel horn and the cigarette lighter plug so I can power my Garmin. Plenty of time.....

Just got a sheepskin butt pad from Alaskan Leather last week and I think I will like it. Thanks to JonL for the Deadsheep discount code that saved me 5 Bucks!

I'm gonna hang up ( already printed a few of them ) the info that Blade Runner has on the event site at a few Northern Ohio Suzuki dealers in an effort to raise awareness and get some more folks to attend.

Peace............

Columbus is my home town Big B., I know, or I should say knew, Westerville well! I think the story usually goes.... "I used to date a girl from Westerville"..... in my case I actually did.

Back in my long distance bicycling days of the late 70's/early 80's I did lots of miles over those roads.

Wonder if the Suzuki dealers would put a note (or something) on their Strom Display at the Bike show?
