    I'm leaving on the 9th from the Philly area so I can get to Joliet, IL. I'm working Mon, Tue, Wed there and riding out to the Rally Thursday morning.
    I figured I would ride 400-500 miles a day (Saturday, Sunday) to get there.

    Where are you located, If you're in Western PA, I can pick you up along the way. I was probably going to find a motel just passed the PA Border somewhere to bunk down for the night and continue on the 10th.

    I will be leaving from the Buffalo, NY area the morning of the 10th, travelling through PA and well into Ohio that day. I plan on skirting Chicago area well south on Rt. 24 in Indiana. Have no firm plans on where to stop for the night. If all goes well, can arrive at rally site later in the day on Wed. but actually I'll just be winging it. Won't mind hooking up for all or part of the trip.

    Leaving from Philly area on the 10th, and riding through Canada and taking the Lake Express ferry on the afternoon of the 11th. Picking up some of the NYC area buds near Scranton or Easton with one sleepover in Western Ontario.

    Riding home by US highways direct on the 15th-16th.

    Where in PA? I'll be leaving Mechanicsburg (Near Harrisburg) on Tuesday the 10th. Don't have route finalized yet but I am going to try to avoid highways when it isn't too out of the way. Will probably take the Turnpike till I get close to Pittsburg then hit 30. Debating on if I should try to go around Chicago or not. Anyway, let me know. My fellow clubmembers are taking the ferry and I am to cheap to spend the bucks on it so I won't be traveling with them.

    This is roughly our route given the Zumo is alive and well:

    303 to 20
    20 to 23
    23 to 50
    50 to Jackson

    We have an overnight in Jackson then on to the ferry in the morning.

    Welcome anyone willing to join.

    I decided to travel through Michigan and take the Mackinac bridge. I'll then swing around Lake Michigan head back south to the Rally.
    I would like to do a combination of highway and more scenic roads so I can both make fairly good time and get a feel for the area. Any good roads that basically parallel RT75?

    Still looking for riding partners - my buddy highsided his K75S a few weeks ago and neither he nor his bike are in good enough shape to go to the Rally.
