Meef's night ride this weekend is probably the best idea I've seen yet. Have you looked at the weather forcast for this weekend?

Sat
May 26
92

Sun
May 27
94

Mon
May 28
91

Pretty much sucks to be off roading in that kind of heat...

I spent many years getting blown over by the fast guys. Early on a gent at a race came up to me and asked if I was riding the 125 that was flagging guys by during the race tp which he thanked me and moved on. If you know there is someone breathing down your neck, hold up a hand momentarily to let them know you'll be moving over asap then you won't have to worry about getting roosted as badly.

Riding out from Marblehead, at the house all weekend . Figure we'll do 3 hours out then back. Tar and vacation traffic - lovely - least its two wheels and it's supposed to be ten degrees cooler. Scenery and company should be charming so no bitchin" here

Dunno. The girlfriend and I are both off Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday, which puts us out of whack with everyone elses fun 3 day weekend plans.

We are open to recommendations!

Edit:
Thinking about riding to Niagara Falls Sunday, stay the night. Riding to Frankenmuth Michigan Monday (over Lake Erie and north of Detroit), hotelling it here too. Then riding home Tuesday. They would be easy days at around 300 miles, but they'd give us destinations to spend some time.

Saturday I was invited on a road ride with an inmate from Ohio Riders who've I've ridden with before, goes by Pfloyd out of Springfield. Supposed to be a bunch of connies. So I imagine it will be all road.

Hmm, those C14 guys think their extra 100 CC makes them far superior to my 10 year old ST1300 model that Honda sees no need to make changes to except for the color.... I'd probably have to prove otherwise.

Been transporting on a single bike hitch carrier. I know some of you have trucks/vans, trailer, maybe a toy carrier. Throw some options out there that work for you. I'm not very creative

My thought is a 3 rail trailer? Could get by with a 2 rail. Examples? Either a well liked model or a specific listing - like it to be cheapish (under a grand) TIA

Here ya go. Pretty nice lite, little trailer--and unusual design--for $750. You'd never have trouble finding it in a sea of haulers!

heeheheheh Pfloydgad ain't a C14 owner, he's an "Original" COG'r....riding a bike that was virtually unchanged, except for paint color, for 20 years...... ZG1000
I on the other hand do have the superior Transcontinental Super Sports Touring machine...C14....and it is Silver-Dammit to boot....Just like my original 86 was, heheehehehehehe
all kidding aside, Greg's (PFloydgad's) saturday sesion is a COG wrench-a-thon and day ride/tire kicking sesion, good folks, good friends of mine, and you'd be surprised how many COG folks own Stroms, G/S's and D/S other brands....
Tell Greg that M.O.B. says "yo", and if he needs any emergency parts to call me....he has my number.
