Anyone Doing GF3?

I was wondering if anyone on here was planning on joining me for the GF3 rides. I've ridden the area before. The pricing structure seems very fair. 2 nights of camping, 3 meals, a t-shirt and sticker all for $50? Preplanned ride routes or open riding. Seems like a no brainer. Was hoping someone was going to join me. Looks like plans are in the works for a WV event next summer also.

Ride365, I am working out details so my wife can accompany me, other wise, I was considering going this solo. Will mention to others on this weekend's impromptu SE Ohio ride, (see Big B Labor Day ride in "Events". Maybe you could join us this weekend?

Jim,

Since Big B's ride got cancelled I guess we aren't doing that. I see you made it to the camping trip at the air strip a couple weekends ago. I ended up having to work. Bummed not to have met you. I met most of the Columbus group you went with at the Romney WV event this spring. I plan on leaving on Friday the 12th around noon from work to head toward Laurel Highlands. I would be willing to head south to meet you and they take a more interesting route east if you are interested. I think I have at least 1 other guy joining us (also on a 2014 DL1000), maybe two. I think I have a guy from Pittsburg that will meet us later too. Come either way. I'm sure that this will be a fun weekend.

-Brian

Only two weeks to go! I'm extremely excited. So are all the others that I've talked to. Come join us. It's going to be a great weekend of riding and fellowship!

As a note, everyone must pre-register through the web site before coming to the event.

Unfashionably late

I should read the Events sub forum more frequently. The G-F3 weekend is something that I would have gladly attended, but for the fact that I only came upon this thread on the eve of the event.

Maybe next time.
