  1. UPDATE: Event Site and Registration Link HERE! Hi everyone! I’m Rose, and I am both the President of Sin City Victory Riders, Chapter 17 in Las Vegas, and the Event Chair for the 20th Annual VMC National Meet. We are very excited and honored to be afforded the opportunity to host this prestigious event, show off our beautiful city and surrounding areas, and show our Victory Family an Epic Time! In an effort to consolidate all questions and answers into one easy to find, search and reference location, we will be answering any 20th Annual National Meet in this thread alone. We will be posting in other forums with similar instructions linking here. As much as we want to put it all out right now, we have been advised to pursue a more methodical timetable. As such we expect the website to be up and operational in its first revision in 3 to 6 weeks. Q&A here after the website goes live will be much more responsive. Persons that will be officially responding to questions on behalf of the hosting chapter will be: Myself 😇 President “Sweet Pea” Danielle Vice President “mom3moos” Levi Secretary “theflashman” Phil Spokesman “PrometheusVII” In closing, I hope you guys are as exited to come out to Vegas as we are to be hosting it. We all look forward to seeing you when September rolls round!

  7. 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!

  12. JUST WANT TO SEND MY GREETINGS TO EVERYONE WHO IS ATTENDING OUR 2020 NATIONAL RALLY AT JOHNSON CITY, TENNESSEE. ALTHOUGH ARNOLD AND I HAD PLANNED TO ATTEND BUT COVID CONCERNS (AS WE ARE IN A HIGH RISK CATEGORY) HAS KEPT US AWAY. OUR NATIONAL RALLIES ARE ALWAYS EXCEPTIONAL AND ENABLE EVERYONE TO GET TOGETHER WITH FRIENDS AND FELLOW RIDERS THAT, IN SOME CASES, THEY DON'T SEE THAT OFTEN, AS WELL AS ENJOY RIDING IN AREAS OF OUR COUNTRY THAT ARE ALWAYS MEMORABLE. HOW WE BOTH WISH WE COULD BE THERE WITH YOU! WE ALWAYS ENJOY SEEING ALL OF OUR FELLOW VMC MEMBERS AT THESE GET-TOGETHERS AND REALLY MISS NOT BEING ABLE TO THIS YEAR - BUT I'M SURE YOU ALL WILL CARRY ON AND HAVE A GREAT TIME! ENJOY! BE SAFE! HAVE FUN! AND WE'LL SEE YOU NEXT YEAR AT THE 20TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE VMC RALLY! CANDI CHRISTIANSEN NATIONAL SECRETARY

  25. Pure Freedom Victory Riders New Zealand is involved with this great event. This is a charity to help the Mission put food on the table for those people that find it difficult to put on at this time of the year and for kids who may miss out on toys. Last year I went on the ride in support paid my $20 NZ and got my event badge and put in 2 toys 1 for a girl other for a boy. This year I asked the members if they would like to support and my Canterbury Riders all said yes. I approached the Mission and asked if we could help out they said that they would be happy for us too but to catch up with the organizers witch I did after a good talk on the phone then a meeting they were happy for us to help out then 1 of the organizers said to me look would you and your group like to be in on this next year as one of the two organizers was moving away I said I would be happy to but would have to ask the group. Happy to say that they all stepped up to the plate and said yes so a our next club meeting it will be put in the minutes to make it official 😀 So proud to be a part of this charity event and the group 😀. Thanks Kram (President)😎

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

  28. 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!

  36. The National Rally in Johnson City, TN was AWESOME! The Tennessee group were great people, the hotel staff was excellent and thankful we were there. 236 people was the mentioned number. The meal at the Swiss Chalet was delicious and and wonderful staff. Of course, those who have ridden in eastern Tennessee and North Carolina know it is some of the most beautiful, fun and challenging roads in America. Even the weather was cooperative. Those who were afraid to come missed out on a great time. Victory owners are a different breed and we met so many new friends and had a lot of laughs. It was worth it!!! I rode almost 900 miles each way to be there and it was worth it!!!!

  37. Here is a very faded front panel of the first V2V shirt, that I had designed for the V2V in 2001. FYI, I had designed the 2013 Fishy shirt to commemorate fellow member Sydney "Fishwich". who passed away suddenly. She was a leg captain of the previous year V2V, on her 2004 50th year anniversary (Polaris) Vegas. She deserves to be remembered.

  38. You want pictures huh? How 'bout these? Nothing here is in order - most of the "people" picks are from the Meet n Greet on Thursday night - man were those munchies good! The "road" pics are from both Friday and Saturday - both excellent rides led by excellent leaders!

  39. Happy 4 of July! We made it to San Francisco and enjoyed dinner at the Crab House. I made new friends on this year V2V and hope to see everyone again on another VMC ride soon. Here is a couple of photos from dinner. I made sure Tiger/Fish Witch was apart of dinner. I will post more later.
