    Will there be a Salty Fog?

    Do Bears run in the woods?
    Is the BIG Gig the premier Urban Rally?
    Is Cape Breton one of the premier riding destinations in all the world?

    Definitely will be a Salty Fog and this year with a diner and a breakfast and maybe even kayaking with the whales!

    No beer halls - BYOB
    No vendors
    Fantastic Riding and the usual friendly Canadian hospitality!

    I Love Salty Fog

    UPDATE:Hi everyone!!,
    I just called Travis at Michigan Tech about the dorm rooms there on campus.
    Travis said he can't take reservations for the rally until late May. He also said there would not be a problem getting a room as there are over 2200 available! Once his summer staff is in place, he'll be able to take reservations.

    the horse is now dead via flogging, the hide has been tanned and someone has a nice new leather jacket out of it. The good parts have been turned into jerky and the left overs are now being composted for someone's organic garden. I think continuing this rant is only serving to deter newcomers from attending the rally. YES, everyone is entitled to an opinion, but this is getting moldy.

    One thing to keep in mind is the size of this event. It is huge. It rivals political conventions in size. There are not a lot of places that can handle this sort of thing and like everything else not everyone is going to be happy about decisions others make on their behalf. Crabbing over and over accomplishes nothing.

    Go ahead, ask me about Roy's Repair. My FYK loves the place.

    When the UP location for the RA Rally was announced, I expressed disappointment to my wife that I might not attend because it was going to be too short of a ride. I figure on my way to Wyoming, I'd find some interesting roads and scenery. I was hoping for the same for the RA. I might have to take the long way through N. Ontario and ride around Lake Superior to extend the ride to the UP.
