    Now, all you have to do is find a rally site big enough to accommodate 7000 riders with lots of camping and about 2000 hotel rooms and food outlets to feed them. Seems simple Eh! but when you start looking there a very few places to look after us.

    Chillicothe, Oh. it's not flat, they host the easy riders there, so I am guessing they could handle us. Good riding and a big fairground.

    Is the paper plant still there? When I used to do SCCA Pro-rallying they had fantastic roads around Chilicothe but what a stench from the plant.

    Just peeking in to see how Rally '07 is................
    The hilly parts of Ohio are much different than Lima, but I'm still guessing there would be resistance to such a move. In any event, if it comes back in this region, give me a hollar if ya'll want some more good music...........

    Now we can probably negotiate a more favorable rate than the previous quote. As long as the air conditioned multi level parking garage is not damaged, we are "good to go"!

    OK, here is another one.
    How about we make it more challenging for the judges for the furthest ride to the rallye?
    What if we had the 2007 rallye in the center of the US, let's say KANSAS.
    Don't forget your "Ruby Shoes" if you should get blown away.
    Sorry, bad joke, but I couldn't resist.

    I think the best idea for a rally site is to not let anyone know about it until the very last minute. Let's say we all ride to New Orleans in July and at the Central grocery store, in the French Quarter, everyone will get directions to the rally site in Colorado Springs,Colorado.
    Then no one will have an advantage over anyone else as far as hotel room space is concerned. I wonder if anyone could keep a secret that long?? He! He!

    Smart money will put the 07 rally somewhere near more interesting riding roads than the flat midwest.( I used to live in IN) Most riders have only a few weeks of vacation time and would rather spend it somewhere scenic. Vermont is a great choice with many beautiful roads all over the New England area. So something similar is hopefully the choice for 07.

    ...after reviewing all said, we have decided that southern California would be our preference for 2007. LD 2up Doing it like a chump would be 3,700 miles (that's how they really measure isn't it?). Now, where is that address for Myer saddles No matter what though, please make it west of the glorious Mississippi! Thanks y'all. -Bob

    Crap.

    Actually, in a weird coincidence, I was in Vegas last week when they imploded that building. I was staying at the Mirage for a conference and heard the booms when they blew it up.

    I'm holding out for Mandalay Bay. There's plenty of camping out by the pool and having drinks delivered to your tent is pretty sweet.

    Some bikes. Some with motors, some without.
