  1. It's less than a month away!!!. http://www.victoryrally.com https://www.facebook.com/VictoryRally/
  2. Just a few important tidbits of information... - As we attempt to maintain this as a family-friendly event, we ask that attendees refrain from wearing colors while at the rally. To my knowledge, this hasn't been an issue, but we'd like to minimize any/possible issues as we continue to build this event. - The hotel staff has asked that we refrain from bringing motorcycles inside the hotel. I'm sure Drew would appreciate it, as well. - Parking will continue to be an issue. We are looking into some options, but for the time being, last year's rules will apply. They follow...
  3. The popular work shirts will be available again this year. This image will be embroidered on the back of a charcoal grey Dickies Short Sleeve Work Shirt. These will be limited run items and will only be available through PREORDER. Please note, we are also unable to ship these, so they must be picked at on site during the rally. We are working on getting costs down, so stay tuned for pricing and ordering info!
  4. The host hotel generally books up on Sunday before the previous year's event closes. Sometimes, people will cancel and rooms will open up. This usually happens in May, about 2 weeks before the event. If we have any rooms open up, I'll post them to let everyone know. If you'd like to stay close, but can't get a room at the host, put in a call to Sylvia at USRiderNews, 478-494-7992. She is handling our overflow and has rooms available at the Super8 and the Best Western.
  5. You've heard about. You may have even been there once or twice or 7 times. But...the 2013 Southeast Victory Rally is set to be bigger and better than any previous year and will be difficult to top in the future! There will be recommended ride sheets and GPS files available. There will be a poker run (organized and coordinated by the Southern Comfort Victory Riders). There will be a bike show, with cruiser, bagger, touring, and custom classes. There will be swag from our sponsors and vendors and supporters. There will be food and drinks and music and maybe just a little bit of mayhem.
  6. I'd be there if I could. Sucks having to miss it, this year. This might be the first in 10 years. Any chance you could score me one of those shotglasses??
  7. First weekend of August... Kids don't start school in PA until September... I'll have to see how the job situation pans out over the next few months, but maybe...
  8. It's damn near impossible to count the number of motorcycles at an event like this. I would suspect that 237 is the number of registered attendees. There is no way to count for unregistered attendees, but to guesstimate. At this year's Southeast Victory Rally, we had 225 registered attendees. Based on that and the number of folks that were there that I know weren't registered, I estimate total attendance at 250ish. With the number of 2-up riders, I would guess we had somewhere in the neighborhood of 200 bikes in the parking lot at night. Except for Friday night, when 2 of them were inside the
  9. Be mindful of your speed between exit 9 and exit 16 in Georgia. That usually were I see cops. They will hang out in the medians, but also tend to set up speed traps on the exit 13 overpass. You'll also want to want your speed rolling into Tifton. Same deal there. Speed reader on the overpass, runners lined up on the on-ramp. Don't waste time with taking trying to take a bypass around Atlanta. It's 8 lanes all the way through and motorcycles are allowed in the HOV lane. If there's a traffic jam in Atlanta on I-75, you can bet the farm the bypass is jammed too. There will be a ton of
  10. Just a reminder...the 2012 Southeast Victory Rally kicks off on May 31st.
  11. All of the big casinos are hurting with this economy and deals can be had. Yesterday, I saw rooms listed at the Hooters Casino Hotel for $38/night. Most of the big places on the strip have rooms listed lower than $70/night. If you're gonna stop in Vegas, you're gonna hit the strip. Might as well stay there...
  12. You're gonna find this every time. We have the same issue with the SE Vic Rally. Our host hotel has been booked solid for months, but registrations were slow to come in. Give it time and post up periodic reminders and folks like the ones above will start to register. The majority of your attendees will register within the 6 weeks prior to the event, regardless of your efforts to get them in sooner. Kind of sucks for organizers, but after doing it for a few years, you get used to the trends.
  13. I'm sure there will be a few of us there for it. However, my planning usually doesn't happen too far in advance, so I can't even commit to thinking about it just yet. We usually stay at the condos across the street from Ms. Newby's...
  14. I like the idea of late-August/early-September, because it tends to correspond with my birthday. However, being a single parent with no local family, I am limited by the kids' school calendar. Since schools in south Georgia start back the first week of August, that pretty much leaves just Labor Day weekend for me (for which Uncle Sam usually gives me 4 days off).
  15. Just got word that I am authorized up to 5 travel days for this trip. As time is short and plans are already set, I'm only gonna take 4 days to get out there. That cuts me down to ~500 miles/day for the first 3 days with ~350 for the last day. Unfortunately, I will be running interstate out there, as I have to be there for the class start at 7am on Friday. I'm thinking I just might take all 5 days to get home, though...
