    Gillette Ride from Massachusetts

    My son and I plan to travel from central Massachusetts to the rally next summer and are hoping to find others from the area who might be interested in riding out and back together. We're thinking a small group might be safer and provide some assistance in case anyone has a mechanical issue. Is anyone from the area interested?

    The Big Riding club in your area are the Yankee Beemers. Check out their website at:
    Yankee Beemers <- Check Out This Link

    You can be sure several of them will be driving to the rally. Another club you will want to check out for riders next year is

    The Vermont MOVers <- Check Out This Link

    PaulBach,

    I posted about going to this rally on our local MOA club at AZBeemers.org. I and the rally were picked on about going to Gillette by no less than a founder/past president. That was it! Damn! Now I have no one considering to go.

    Hmmm. Maybe Gillette's too far for him to travel

    He didn't complain about too far, he complained about too hot and dusty as if all Wyoming was like that.

    From what I have been reading here on routes, I know better already!

    I so want to come despite the 1138 miles or so. I think that's 2 days of travel each way, and I have the 2 routes plotted together in Mapsource already with Meeker, CO as the end of the first day run!

    If I have to come alone I will but'll be the longest trip I ever did R/T on a bike, including Dad's '68 R50/2 I drove as much as I could get away with, from when licensed in 1974 until 1990 (at my hands it was sudden death but I walked away).

    Dad just asked me how I was, and how soon I was going to get another one, letting out a very anxious cackle of a laugh when I answered him I was fine, just hurting inside.

    Note my address

    I'm in Chicago and I suspect you'll be coming thru these parts, I'd be pleased to hook up with you and ride on. For that matter, you can crash at my place that evening, if it works for you.

    We'll develop some alternate routes to 1-80.

    Huh?? Someone from Arizona complaining that it might be too hot?
