    ultra mega huge big bike friendly. Its an Iron Butt Association gathering and 24 hour ralley. Its in Florida in March. I went a few years ago and I had a really fun time, even being in Florida for 1000 miles! They had a list of 10 waypoints etc and everyone was given a Ralley Flag with a number. You needed to link the waypoints into you're GPS and take a picture of youre bike with ralley number. I met alot of cool people on alot of bikes. By then I will have a big Boxer GS again, im still deciding on a ghetto bling 1150, or a 05 1200.


    The 14 calander isnt posted, but it is in March typically.

    Hey! I up north a little ways, St. Marys/Emporium area. But I hear/read that people looking for more dirt trail riding. Lots and lots of stuff up here. Check out Quehanna Wild Area and all the trails off of Quehanna HWY. I know its late in the season, my bike is in the shop an extensive motor tear down state right now, I've hung the boots up for the winter. But come spring time anyone more than welcome to come ride some trails up around here.

    PM me for more

    Hell yeah I'll come up! Just spent three days at Four Seasons Resort riding with the boys, wife and two other families. It was awesome! What a cool place and they have some REAL trails there. Very challenging! Came out with a cracked fender on the Razor, cracked number plate on the 50 Mini, cracked front fender on the 50 SX, cracked rear fender on the 65 SX, lost kicked starter on the 65 SX and broken turn signal on the 350... needless to say it was a bit muddy. The bikes were taking naps everywhere. A lot of firewood was burned and a few beers were downed and the boys (6 total) ate everything they could find! What a great time! This was the first real weekend my oldest (9 yr old) had a bike with a clutch and gears. All the 50s are automatics. He did great! Gotta do it again soon.
