    Rolling Out From Massachusetts

    I am rolling out from Massachusetts - July 16th Monday, looking for another rider heading for the rally. Please let me know if you are interested and or leaving around this date.

    I am on a K1200 RS and another party is on a K1200s. Looking for a third.

    Thanks,
    David

    David, perhaps a bit behind your schedule..... there are two of us leaving Wilkes-Barre, PA on the Saddlesore 1000 to Sedalia at 5 AM Wednesday.. one on a GT another on an RT.. We are staying Tuesday night at the Comfort Inn at exit 165 in Wilkes-Barre. Trip is mapped out including gas stops every 200 miles thanks to some leg work done by the other rider. Not sure about a group of 5, but if riding styles do not match we have already agreed to not slow one another down.

    Thanks For the Response

    Thanks for the response - that is about a 5 hour ride and I was hoping to be further by Wednesday. My map out is about 425 a day.

    Can you guys send me your route in order to compare to mine.

    I have two routes mapped out based on different scenarios.

    Thanks,
    David

    David, I thought as much. As it turns out we just picked up another RT rider heading out of Wilkes-Barre at 5 AM Wednesday.

    I-80 W to I-76 & I-80 W
    I-76 W towards I-277
    I-76 W to I-76 W/US-224 W to I-71 S
    I-71 S to I-270 W to I-70 W
    I-70 W to I-270 W
    I-270 W to I-70 W
    I-70 W to US-65 S
    then

    Boston to Sedalia via BRP

    Hi all,

    I'm riding from work in Boston Friday 3 pm, out the pike Rt. 90 to Taconic Parkway south to Rt 84 to Rt. 81 to Front Royal, VA, will ride all of Skyline Drive and most of BRP, will probably turn west at Asheville and hope to approach Sedalia from the south through the Ozarks, never been there. I'll be on an '04 Silver R1150RT with NH plates, hope to see you along the way or as we get closer to Rally.

    Ride safe!

    Mark
