JD, I like they way you think. I've often had the same thoughts but gathering up ADV'ers for a ride is a lot like herding cats. "Old Coot Hoosier Rally" works for me. Joel seems to be the busiest with his job and family so we would have to set a date that would fit him into the schedule. There was also a couple of people who posted on Joel's thread that had recently moved to the area. I'm thinking that we should pick a region/area and then pick a home-base(lodging) central to several days of riding. There's the Ohio River area in the south. The covered bridge area to the west. Those are the areas that offer the most dual-sport options. My preference would be the spring or fall but any time of year that would capture the most Indiana inmates would work. Maybe we should start a thread in the Regional Forums? I can tell you from experience that it will involve several recon rides, putting maps together for participants, securing agreements with the motel/lodging/campground & seeking out the good places to eat all of which will require more riding and time. Like there would be a problem with that... So are we doing a recon ride this weekend? I'm in.
