Anybody wanna meet?

Anybody wanna meet this riding season? I know it's difficult to plan but I'm thinking about just throwin' a time and place out there and seeing if anyone shows up. I figure there's a better chance if people have plenty of advanced notice. I'm thinkin' a weekend in August.

We could meet in my town maybe - Clinton, NJ. It's in farm country so it's got real nice riding. There's a Holiday Inn right across the street from me too and I'm sure I can find a place to camp near by if that's preferred. The restaurants are stellar and there's even tons of room in the back parking lot of my development for your bikes if we want to barbeque or whatever. Let me know if anyone's interested. And yes, before you ask, I'll try to make sure Carrie's there. LOL!!

If Carrie's gonna be there, you might want to post this where there is more exposure. I suspect many here would try to make it! Not sayin' we wouldn't like to meet you LP, just stating the facts.

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

Fair enough ruger, I hear ya! Hopefully Slim and I do meet and we can make a pit stop at your place. That'd be fun...

you both will be more than welcome to stop by, but I'm a little bit (a lot!) North of slims rout. I'm about 2 1/2 hrs North! I would think it would be easier for you and slim, for me to ride down there and then escort you West through most of Ohio.

if it goes vroom or boom, I LIKE IT!

Ruger, I need to go through two towns in suth eastern Ohio.. Another forum member, "ifixit" lives in Wintersville, and I have another friend that got out of the army a couple years ago that lives in Zanesvile, My anticipated rout is very flexible however. After meeting my two friends, heading in any direction is not out of the question, as long as we don't eat up all of LP's vacation time. I should have close to 60 days of Terminal leave, and I only need 15 of them to actually settle back into the civillian life and start collecting a normal paycheck again.

Vacation time's not an issue in fact, I'm thinking about taking 2 weeks for the hell of it and enjoying another week off once I get back from the road trip. If the ride cuts into that, so be it. I'm flexible with the route as well...

Everyone else makes it! And, you're already used to riding on dirt. Just bring along some wire cutters...
