Well,

Unfortunately I will not know if I am going until I start heading that way, hopefully leaving Wednesday morning and should be there early afternoon.

I am either riding the 990 up or take the van so I can take both the 990 and the 500, this event seems to have great riding available for both.

I have not registered with Herb as I will not know in advance if I can make it and I really would rather take care of my own meals. Is it okay to just "show up" as long as I do not intend to have meals provided?

It has been mentioned that Herb will be selling gas but if it is for his equipment I would assume it is not premium fuel correct?

I hope I can get up there to visit those that I have met before and meet those that I have not.

Wow @ those bikes jrozar!

Right on guys and I'm 1000 miles closer to the west as of today. I have a cousin in mississippi with some great property in the country. Was planning to throw the tent up for tonight but found a cabin with a couch ! Amazing how well my sleeping bag its working out on it. Tomorrow gong a little over 500 miles on the klr. The beater thumper bike is amazing me. Glad i brought the air hawk R from my other bike seat. Anyway going to Dallas to pick up some klim britches from an inmate in case one of you may be a gear natzi or such hehe and many track leathers were not an option

I'm roughing it here with the tent still on the bike

FZ,

Usually not a problem to just show up if you're tenting it and taking care of your own food. And Herb should have premium gas for this event.

Unfortunately, I'm going to have to miss this one.

OK, I'm in! This will be my 1st real adventure ride. Not sure if I'm just riding the Triumph Explorer 1200 XC or trailering it along with my KTM 530. The 530 has the stock tank and no racks so it probably wouldn't make any of the distances required for the rides.

Is there some sort of schedule for the rides? I'll be arriving Saturday morning and just want to make sure I'm there before everyone takes off.

I'll be tenting and I'm emailing Herb right now.

Looking forward to seeing everyone.

Hornsilver Cabin AVAILABLE for 99.00 per night

Ok guys, I hate to do this, but I have to bail on the Rally. As a result, the two bed cabin I reserved back in June is now available. I just sent Herb the cancellation email, so give him an hour or two to read it before you start calling...

I just found this thread. I might ride up Saturday for dinner. Tent the night, and ride back Sunday. Will folks be hanging out Sat night? What time is dinner? I'm in San Diego so it's over 500 Miles each way as far as I can tell. Don't see an address anywhere, did I miss it?

Dinner will be around 6:30 ish Saturday night, he generally follows the SPOT of the main rides and puts the steaks on just in time.
