    The fairgrounds are fine and safe, as are most other areas.
    You mean like in every other place in the country? C'mon folks it's in the middle of Ohio, it can't be that bad.

    Dude, Denver totally. Dallas in July just has to suck to drive through. I70 west of Denver is absolutely gorgeous to drive through.

    I remember crossing Kansas, leaving Colorado, and the blast-furnace crosswind from the south/southwest was UNREAL. A difficult day. Got into St. Louis, 104 degrees and more hot wind.

    BTW, there is a nice "swim hole" about 8 minutes from the site; a new public small lake/beach.

    The key is that the facility will be conducive to the event, with gobs of room for everything, and good "infrastructure", so the Rally itself will be fine. Outside of that, the worst that might be said is that west-central Ohio ain't Vegas, but that ain't always all bad.

    Mike, I have to agree with you. The facilities are great, and for those that like to ride there and park, this will be a first class rally. Everything will be right there, great camping and all the space you could want. If you are friends with the powers that be at the fairgrounds, see if they can get some motorcycles to race that night. I wonder how many GS riders would like to have a try at some flat track action. possibly some instruction by an experienced rider in the area would be cool. Kinda like a track day on dirt.

    Events at the 2005 National

    I would respectfully ask that folks let me make calls and contacts regarding events at the the rally.

    I appreciate all of the enthusiasm, but too many people making contact-calls can be confusing.

    That being said, though --- I am open to all suggestions and would love to hear from ANYONE with good ideas for the rally.

    You can bet money that Brian and I will do everything in our power to make this an incredible rally!



    Thanks!

    RIGHT! Just so no one misunderstands, I have offered to help Sue in any way I can, but I am doing nothing with respect to the Rally unless she asks me to do something. These events have to be organized and arranged fromthe top down, or it doesn't work.

    Other than that, my original offer stands to answer any specific questions from members relating to the Lima area, etc.

    Sorry Sue, I was just getting all fired up. Lima is a famous stop for the ama flat track bikes. I will contain my excitement, and defer to you and Brian. Tell him I said hi, and it was nice meeting him at the ride for kids. Wish I could have talked more, but it was a long ride home.
