So Close You Can Experience the Spirit of THE RALLY!
[QUOTE=RDMEASE;821618]I'm from Oregon I've been a member for about 3 years and have really wanted to attend an International Rally... but they've always been too far and/or I've been unable to get the time off work. This coming summer rally dates are perfect and I can get those days off. But geeez... I would love a nice ride to get there... but only 50 miles down I-5 to get to Salem... that just takes the wind out of my sails. Perhaps I'll wait for another year and what I'd consider a funner destination from my point of view. For me the road trip to get there is half the fun! Without a decent ride to get there is the rally really worthwoth it? Should I wait for another year? Just rambling here ÔÇª. LOL![/QUOTE]
RDMEASE that is no way to be. The best way to enjoy THE RALLY is to volunteer. If you have never been to a rally this is the rally to go to. You know the roads in the area, you know the great places to go this is the opportunity for you to share Oregon with all the visitors. Show it off! The benefit of a close rally is you can attend all the early pre-rally events! Attend the Rider Performance University, go ride the Iron Butt to the rally and by volunteering at the beer garden or registration you get to meet everyone! This is a perfect time to go to the rally.
If you still have doubts go to the Taproom this Wednesday at 6 p.m. we will be there and we will convince you. Don't want to socialize contact me.
Any discussion about the 'Salem 1000' yet?
Any discussion here about a Saddlesore 1000 for Salem yet? I seem to remember start points for Redmond in Miles City MT and Ely NV which made for some interesting route choices. Maybe we could start near the top left corner of the contiguous USA for instance?
