  1. 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!!

  2. 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

  5. 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.

  6. Group wanted to visit the Iron Pony motorcycle superstore before heading to hotel. Shawn took off home and the three of us had wings for dinner before heading to hotel. Sorry about the photo orientation, couldn’t edit it.

  7. Leg 10 started wet as we rode to IMS but it stoped raining after we left the track. Wayne Sr, Bill Pittenger, Shawn Arteritero, and myself were the leg 10 riders.

  8. How amazing that 99.9% listen to over the airwaves radio stations....that 0.1% seems to still give some of these radio stations thousands of listeners. And you clearly haven't checked out the full list or REALLY checked out what they are all about.....but then you always know best! So maybe you can explain what have you done positively to promote the club, even in your local area? Then the rest of us who are TRYING can learn from your boundless experience and energy.

  9. 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.

  10. I am not sure I understand the closed minded comment. It seems that you think someone is purposefully, or making a decision to not, promote the club. This is just not the case, unless I am missing something. Whose responsibility is it to promote the club? If you say "the board", then who specifically on the board has the responsibility of promoting the club? Really the answer is "all of us members", at least historically, as far as I can tell. We do have a marketing committee vacancy that has been vacant my entire time I have been a part of this club. You are right about one thing. We do need to change and evolve, or slowly die. I wish it was as easy as a snap of fingers to make changes. We are working on things. Sometimes not fast enough and it is frustrating. I hope these changes come soon. Based on comments here and elsewhere, folks like me will need to step up and take control, rather than wait for other members to get involve, even thought I don't have the time to commit. Because I want to see this club thrive. I see a whole lot of accusations, but not a lot of volunteering. It is strange to me, that you create this topic, which starts with making a very valid observation, but ends with accusations (towards Llama, the tone there is there are not any online biker stations because you and your friends have not heard of any) and the slant towards close-minded members. Please see @Reverend Beavis for the information you private messaged me for. I am convinced you will only use the information to further try to divide this club, and I will not be a part of that. Please send your request to him.

  11. Road construction didn’t allow us to see an original trail covered bridge but we were able to see Contract Falls in Cloverdale, IN as our last stop of the day.

  13. Thanks - I am picking the photos up from here. For some reason I can't open the videos. I do think we should have been hitting the motorcycle press and radio stations with announcements - I had suggested it some months ago (in fact I have been nagging about this since last Fall) I drafted a press release in an attempt to ease workload for others, so maybe it was done and I am not aware. Too late now for the V2V, except for LCs/Regions trying to get something in their local press in the last few days - again, maybe this is already happening. Not too late for radio stations though. And not too late for our Anni year in general (almost, but ....). Knowing how far in advance the mainstream magazines work it almost certainly is for them, although they might squeeze a mention in their general news pages. We should be broadcasting to the world that it is our 20th, about the V2V, the Nats, regional and local events, including overseas - V2E across Europe, the Scotland and New Zealand events, e.g., events all over the world to commemorate our official 20th year. I believe the Marketing Committee will be reporting at the Board meeting in July, so perhaps we will hear what has been achieved then.
