Southeastern regional VN750 Rally

Who would be open to the idea of participating in a SE regional rally, with the rally location being held in/near Leeds, AL?

The "focal point" of the rally would be of course the Barber Motorsports Vintage Bike Museum (this place is simply too cool for you to miss):

http://www.barbermuseum.org/index-full.php

Great riding opportunities are nearby, including the Talladega National Forest area.

I think we should have enough places nearby to stay overnight. Nearby "29 Dreams" has been replaced/renamed by the moniker "Courtyard 25" and has overnight camping and cabins (although I'm not sure these are available yet beyond weekends).

There's lodging/camping at nearby Cheaha State Park, as well as the hotel/motel selections along I-20.

Who else thinks this is a good enough idea to participate sometime during the warmer part of the year (May-October)?.....

I might be able to make it, depending on several factors I can't control. Always wanted to ride that area.

I'm keepin' all the left over parts. I'm gonna use 'em to build another bike!

I am in 100% - I am in Alabaster and would love to connect up with of "ya'll." Recently in Alabaster I bumped into Wolf of Thunder Roads Magazine. Did you know he bought a VN750 for his wife? He writes about it in the most recent edition.
