'09 MEET-Anyone from the east going? Ride together?


Recommended Posts

I'll be going but MI is a bit out of my way, however it looks like I will be going to Sturgis after the meet and therefore on the way back may be riding that direction. Are you riding home directly after themeet or possibly thinking of the same plans as I just mentioned? I think there are a few planning these events in the same trip. Some of us may not be able to hook uo to ride there buy possibly to ride to Sturgis and then back.

 

This thread might should go into the Meet forum so it doesnt get lost in the many threads of the main, although it would be some great exposure here in the main for a few days.

I know for a fact I am going to Billings then Sturgis. We may be iron assing it over to Billings on Wednesday after work to arrive Thursday evening.......Or leaving sooner in the week and hitting some other scenery on the way over...That is up in the air...In either situation, the group I will be with does not do the whole stop and screw off thing very much (No Jim, my brother is not going with us on that one!). In other words, we ride hard and long....If that sounds like your pace, you are welcome to join us if it fits your schedule...

 

:y:

Lobs, yeah I'll have to come back home after the MEET because my vacation time will already be thin and "other" factors that will want me back asap.

 

Golfer, I was thinking of leaving Tues July the 28th after work and staying somewhere for the night and riding the rest of the way the 29th. I was thinking that way I'd be ready to party Thursday... But your idea don't sound bad either... Maybe I could ride from here to Traverse City, stay the night there, hook up with ya'all the next day and then ride with ya from there? I like to ride hard, stopping a few times to look at something isn't bad but to much of that and you'll grow grey hair trying to get where you're going, not to mention I like to move at a decent pace. 5 over is good, sometimes crank up the wick a little more.

 

 

How may people are going to be in your group?

I will check out Hitch Doc....But I doubt they have a hitch for the Vision for that price, and self installable..

 

On another note....Why is this forum not allowing a response to a quote within that quote without being shaded?

 

Just checked Hitch Doc....No Vision hitch....

We are heading out for the first week of Sturgis on July 24th or 25th from North Eastern PA. I will then be leaving from Sturgis on Thursday morning July 30th to Billings. Returning to Sturgis on Sunday morning, staying overnight, and back to PA Monday morning. We MIGHT have room for a couple to stay at the rental house in Sturgis on Sunday night Aug. 2.

Just an update for our plan for this event, coming from Northern Michigan. We changed from hitting Billings first then Sturgis, to Sturgis first, then Billings...Looks like we will be going down and around Chicago on the way out, and up and over through the UP on the way back. Here is our schedule:

 

 

Leaving Traverse City, MI Sunday July 26 a.m. (not too early, standing up in my buddies wedding the night before, gonna be a long night). Riding to Sioux City, IA Sunday night. Arriving in Sturgis Monday July 27. Staying in Sturgis Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, leaving Thursday a.m. Arriving in Billings Thursday afternnoon July 30. Staying in Billings Thursday thru Sunday. Leaving Billings Sunday 8/2 a.m. Arriving in Duluth, MN Sunday evening. Leaving Monday a.m. from Duluth, arriving back in Traverse City, MI Monday evening, August 3. Will end up with about 4,500 miles in 9 days of riding...

 

Won't be camping at all either. So my bike will not look like the pictures above. And, Nikki will not be going, so tons of room!!! We found a campground in Sturgis that is renting us a trailer with kitchen and bathroom for $18/day, he had it mismarked and honored that price anyway...Luckily we are going to be there the week prior to the rally. The price goes up to $500 and $100/person for the rally, for the same trailer...Staying at the Billings hotel and conf center while in Billings.

 

 

CANNOT WAIT!!!!!

 

:yho

Hey Golfer, since your plans changed and you are coming through Chicago land and ending up in Sioux City, IA the first night, are you coming across I-80 through Des Moines? If you are, some of us in the CIVR could escort you in to the area. We will be heading to Billings but not until Wednesday. We could meet you for lunch or whatever.

 

Keep us informed. If you need a phone number or any help, send me a pm.

I'm heading from the St. Louis area, but my trip will end in Hot Springs, SD as I will be doing a father-son week around the black hills. I grew up there all my life and try to get back when I can whenever the Coast Guard allows me to. Maybe will get to ride with someone out there. May hook up with someone on the way back from the meet to. Otherwise riding solo. Take it easy.
