    I just found out this will be the last year for the Rolling Thunder Rally to be held in DC as it is supposedly moving to Columbus, OH next year and may be in different locations in future years. Here's an article with the low-down:

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/loca...ory.html?noredirect=on&utm_term=.18eb997385d8

    And here's a quote from the article: A massive annual motorcycle rally staged in Washington will end next year, with organizers citing a lack of law enforcement cooperation and “increased harassment to supporters” as reasons for stopping the 31-year-old tradition.

    I know this event is dominated by Harley types but I would still like to experience it in DC before it goes away because of apparent bureaucracy. This rally in DC is a vestige of the good ol' days I guess.

    Anyone interested in rolling up there, let me know. I plan to cruise my 89 BMW K75 and possibly use tent space to stay with an inmate somewhere around DC unless I can get a room at an air force or navy base around DC, or we can split lodging somewhere up there as well; whatever works.

    Doesn't look like anyone here is interested in rolling up to DC over Memorial Day weekend...

    On a different note, will anyone be around the Salem, VA area tomorrow around 5-6 or so? May need a small favor; thanks

    Open invite to anyone interested in rolling out to Snowshoe, WV next month for GNCC racing (Sunday, 23 June is the main bike race)

    I have a few extra tickets and plan to camp in the area. Awesome location offering more than just racing. Here are the details:

    Oh I'd have hit you up already but my son gets home from Italy on the 22nd so I'm not going to be able to go.

    Still have a few tickets for GNCC at Snowshoe unspoken for. Should be a legit event with more than just racing. Great area to ride also.
