  1. My favorite roads out there were the Old Spiral Highway, did that 3 times and the road from Lewiston to Joseph Oregon had some fun turns and twists. Don't forget to stop at Stein Distillery and get a bottle of Rye. Good stuff.
  2. well if the auction is cool enough at Lewiston I'm sure many of us wouldn't have a problem driving to Sturgis to pickup the goods.
  3. here's some hints, It's a dodge ram pickup The owner lives in Michigan He's loved and adored and many :ltr I can't be 100% sure it's the same person but I did see someone with that setup at the National Rally. Actually sat at the dinner table with him both nights. I did not ride with him though. They tend to drink a little more and sleep in while I'm an early riser
  4. I know what kind of oil he uses. He's also shorter than I remember. :har
  5. I'm a sitting board member, I was there but I can't say how many others attended. The United States is a pretty big area, the weather may have also scared a few away at the last moment. I'm sure a lot of the board members would have liked to have attended, the reality is life often gets in the way. Even though I was on vacation, I still ended up with a surprise customer visit last minute. While I agree it would be nice to have had a large board turnout, you also need to realize that these are volunteer positions. Just because someone is a board member it doesnt mean they have the vacation time and/or financial means to attend the rally. We don't even get free membership during our terms. Not that $8 a year is a big deal it it would be a nice gesture. I don't remember seeing a table set aside for board members to sit at anyhow. I don't honestly know if any other ones were there. But like many people I'm sure they would've liked to have attended if they could have.
  6. I agree as well. I was especially impressed with Greeson's putting out the red carpet for us. Had a good time, got rained on a bit and was lucky enough to get a flat tire near Queen Wilhelmina but thankfully a local independent shop was only 6 miles away and had a D250 in stock. Left this morning and now 30 minutes west of Atlanta. You can tell a lot of planning went into this event and hopefully they realize how much we appreciate it.
  7. I'll be going solo and have a double be room. If you're a procrastinator and need last minute accommodations or want to split a room to have more beer money let me know. I do qualify as strange but more of a fun strange than a scary strange. :ltr
  8. i didn't see much interest after the riding season came back upon us. Thinking of revisiting it again for the annual AVR.
  9. we wouldn't need to use any IBA info. Could be something as simple as I rode my ass off to etc etc. I'm not the most creative when it comes to stuff like that.
  10. ok, we're a few months out yet but looking for a headcount on how many people still plan on participating in this ride. The factory will be accommodating us and the employees that build the bikes will be used as our final witness upon completion of the ride. We're planning on meeting somewhere near to the finish line and ride in all as 1 group. Hotels will be up the individual to decide where they want to stay. However a celebratory get together will likely happen. It won't be funded, just a bunch of us getting together at a bar/restaurant hooting and hollering and congratulating each other. Hopefully joined by some Victory employees and personnel. Should be a fun event, somewhat disorganized, relatively rowdy, a great photo opportunity for riders/employees and a promotional opportunity for the factory. You will be responsible for your own route to the meeting destination as well hooking up with anyone that wishes to ride with you. Date is June 7th, 2012(Thursday) with an arrival to plant at no later than 3pm Friday the 8th. If you think you'll be up to attempt this first ever national VMC IBA ride to the birthplace please enter yes on the poll so we can approximate how many members will partake in this event. It also may be kind of a neat idea to have some t-shirts made up for this. Cost will be determined depending on volume. This isn't an official club sponsored event, but it is open to whomever wishes to join in on the ride. If you are creative design wise, have access to a silk screener or are a vendor that can be the middle man for these please contact me.
