Sure...we understand. Perhaps another year. Have a great time!!

QUOTE=Wansfel;23367875]Sue,
It would be rough to change the date now. I know of some that have already put in for time off based on that date. Also, I would not be able to make the ride a full week earlier, but it certainly isn't about me. (Committed to dog watching while my lady is on a girl's cruise). Timmer posted the date as soon as possible and we haven't heard any other requests, thus far.

MoonDoMT,
I need to confer with Timmer a bit more before I'm ready to release the basic route. Expect some PM after a bit.

I can say we are on track with our intent to change this Year's ride to a more north to south focus and some really new country for the MT1000/Best of Montana series. I think everyone has caught on it will start with a run to a major national park. And I think there may be some more Idaho somewhere down the route. We will be interested in some localized input that could enhance the ride (or even provide some localized optional alternatives for those that would like a little extra challenge.) I know we won't make an absolute final version (including GPX files) until much closer to July to allow for some feedback and input once we post the general route, but it wouldn't be fair to make major changes close to the date either. The "1,000" in the title may be a little understated.

Also, so far I would say there will be some interesting and attractive possibilities to tie to the front end, and especially after the formal end, allowing extension of adventure to those so inclined.

Ron

PS. Watercat, I'll be sure to bring plenty of extra rope[/QUOTE]

Thank you Wansfel, all the planning is lots of work and I'm sure every one would agree... also I'm in that group of people already requesting time off and dog care arrangements. Although very unfortunate idabeemerboy, sorry, sounds like you atleast have some fun planned already.

Being a first timer to touring what can you all recommend for the MT 1000?
Whats the one thing you always forget, wish you had, or recommend?

'Ending' in Salmon brings some interesting return possibilities to mind.

I don't understand why you two don't cancel the drags and come on this ride...tell Tom if he does I will bring the '62 over and race him for pinks! [no, that was not a serious offer, I am dumb but not crazy..].

So Tom go to drags...and miss the ride...hope you snap an axle! [not really on this one either...]

Hopefully if you are home 7-24 I can stop by on my way to the Lolo and Troy..

Biker rallies or runs are not my cup of tea to be around...but that is just me.

Jackson, MT??? Hope you don't mean the Rainbow Family meet of 2013.

Lived 10 years from '98 - '08 in Daytona Beach. Had enough hogs then. Between Bike Week and Biketoberfest.... Did enjoy looking over the custom jobs, but not the noise and congestion.

Mentioned in previous threads about riding more north. Any chance of crossing into Canada? If so, I need to acquire a Passport before the ride.
