  1. Leg 12 was arguably the most scenic leg this side of the Mississippi! Started off visiting Castleman's River Bridge, Flight 93 Memorial, lunch at The Hen House, LaVale Toll Gate House and a scenic overlook on the way to Frederick, MD to meet up with Rick Burgess. Great experience riding the V2V this weekend!

  2. Last post for me this trip. Had a wonderful time as always. It was great to see my Vic family sisters and brothers and meet great new ones along the way. US40 out of Columbus all the way to the Bears Den in Cambridge to meet Leg 11 Captain Sam Titus. Picture at lunch with Sam’s wife Amber, Wayne Sr, Mark Merle and myself. The traditional passing of the bag and bars to Sam who took Amber and Mark to Uniontown while Wayne Sr and I headed home. have a great ride the rest of the way V2V 2021!! Until next year!!

  3. It was great meeting up with you guys, only wish I could have gone all the way. It has been a very long time since I've seen the batton. Brings back good memories. Lobo

  4. I agree with you, Wouldn't it be something to use the baton as a connection to every chapter to promote the club.

  5. While in MD, Fred, aka "csmclobo", met us en-route and rode with us for several miles on his 99 V92C. We had to stop and say "Hi" and share the baton. Notice his V2V tee shirt from the 2nd annual run. Was a pleasure meeting you!

  8. The baton has completed the journey for leg 11, ending near Uniontown PA. A very special Thank You to Wayne O Jr and Sam Titus for stepping up and going way beyond. They split the distance from Columbus to Uniontown as the original leg captain was not able to attend

  10. I think there's someone here who hasn't figured out how an MC works, I think an MC isn't "various" fun FACEBOOK Riders group. Usually when you choose to be part of something it's because you want it and because you know what you're talking about! Of course we are in the era of where everything is made of" likes "and technology It would all be "easier" because everyone or almost everyone uses Facebook, but this does not mean losing or worse forgetting the origins, traditions, no matter if one day we will be less than we are today, " better few but good ". At least we will know that those few are pure and believe in what they do and have chosen. I think This is the right place to interact. After all what changes, 2 hours on FB or 2 hours on the forum? That said.... Enjoy your Vic Ride and be a part of this CLUB!

  25. I don't want to get in a pissing contest, but you are right. I don't know what they are about and don't care. You see Mark, unlike you, I live in a big country where on a daily basis, I can get face to face with 100's of Victory riders here in in my little corner of Southern California. I am not stranded on an island in the middle of the Pacific Ocean where I have no fellow Vic riders to get together with face to face. I don't have the need to live my motorcycle life vicariously through this club. As far as what I have done, I founded the Greater Los Angeles chapter. Actually been to numerous national and regional events. Helped out with the SW region annual meet. Coordinated with Victory Corporate in getting support for that event. Was part of the P&P committee several years ago. Trust me, I do appreciate your enthusiasm for the club. If not for you, there would be very little going on in the forums. What you have done for the Chapters outside of the States is incredible. And yea, I call them as I see them. And no, I don't know best. But I do believe I have a better feel for the pulse of the Victory motorcycle community than you. I read some of your posts about how this club is amazing and fantastic. I hear a Career military officer trying to rally the troops when things a going against them.

  27. Too busy to write a long list of biker radio stations…I presumed you would know better than me. Here are just a few off the top of my head, so apologies if I get any names wrong…I am surprised you didn’t know there was even one! Biker Radio Biker Classic Rock Biker Hart Harley Liberty Then there are news video stations such as: Bikers Inner Circle Black Dragon Biker TV Insane Throttle And there are some others in Europe such as Biker F M in UK…. and the list goes on! Anyhow, there are more but I am too busy these days.

  45. As Drnoleak stated 300-400 is about right. But due to COVID things have changed. During the 2020 National Meet there was about 234 that showed up. There were cancelation due to Borders being closed and no overseas flight. We estimated that there will be about 300.

  46. HAHahaaaa!🤣😂😎. That changes weekly, but we are looking good at the moment. As I am told, a Lot of folks wait till almost the last minute to register, so the current numbers don't tell the whole story. Jim assures me we are doing well/on par compared to previous years. We look forward to seeing you at the Meet! Keep that countdown app rolling!...
