    Hey everyone. Once again, the Bennington Triumph Bash is fast approaching. If you've never come, you should check it out. It's an informal, low-key, but very successful rally for Triumph enthusiasts. We're entering our second decade; when we started this thing, we would never have guessed it would keep going for so long. But it's been a lot of fun every year, and new people keep discovering it, which is why we keep doing it ("we" being Mark -- that's me -- and Alan). We don't make any money off this, we just like the bikes and the fact that we've made a lot of friends through this event.

    We get Triumph riders (and those who simply like Triumphs) from all over the Northeast, of course, but we also get people riding in from much farther away -- as far south as Alabama, as far west as Washington State, we've even had a few international riders who joined us as part of a long North American tour.

    It's a fun event because of the people who attend. It's a great crowd. And as far as bikes go, it's a good mix of styles -- lots of Tigers, lots of Bonnies/Thruxtons/Scramblers, plenty of Speed/Street Triples, a few Daytonas, and a growing Thunderbird contingent.

    The BTB is not based at any one specific location, but a lot of attendees stay at the Paradise Inn, and a lot of people camp up at Greenwood Lodge and Campsites just east of town. There is no registration or fee for the Bash, just for the Friday pig roast ($26) and Saturday banquet ($32.50) dinners (registration links are on the Dinner page of the BTB website -- you do need to register in advance for the dinners because we need to give accurate head counts to the vendors).

    Join us in Bennington, Vermont, the weekend after Memorial Day!

    Four weeks to go! For those planning to attend, please get your BBQ and dinner registrations in; they close a week before the Bash.

    Hope to see some of you there!

    After 11 years of wanting to attend; the planets, work, and life have finally aligned - I’m in!
    BBQ and dinner reservations are in. I’ve reserved a spot to set up my tent in the group camping area. Anyone else plan on tenting?
