Southerners to The V-Strom Gathering, June 26 -28, 2009
It appears to me, that there are already 8 Southern commitments to The V-Strom Gathering, June 26 - 28, 2009. Would you like arrange to meet in convenient areas on the way up and out, so that we might "share the ride" ?
I am committed to go, and a couple of my non-Strom riding friends are seriously considering the trip as well. I was just wondering if there is any interest in a "small group" ride. The Google Maps search says it's approx. 1400miles for me from Chattanooga by way of Nashville, St.Louis, Kansas City, Omaha, Sioux Falls, to Rapid City. I'm thinking that's three 7 hour days or four 5 1/2 hour days - I care not which ( I don't think I want two 10 1/2 hour days, though). Some have been rumored to be "camping" on the way out. I don't have that option, but I think it would still work with a little planning (motels near camgrounds or campgrounds with cabins, etc.).
Does any body have an interest in coordinating with me on the ride out ?
P.S. As a side note, I am not planning on riding back the same way I rode out. I have a friend who lives near Denver, CO, that has been begging me to come out and let him show me around Colorado and Wyoming (he has a classic BMW GS Adventure Air Head). I'm planning on several days there, as well. Probably will make it back to Tennessee around July 4th. If there is any interest among you for this side trip, following The Gathering, let's see how that could work out, as well.
