Hi Flatlander,
The rally "pond" might be a bit small. Try starting a thread in the
Members Lounge. See Southern Ontario ....... thread for one I started back in the winter lots of activity and although we have only had one meet and two rides so far more will follow. Make a few sugestions to get the discussion started.
Good luck
Phil

Hi Flatlander,
No not that far: East of Algonquin Park/ West of Ottawa. on Hwy 60. Mapquest will give you an idea of distance from your house but if you like 500 mile days just a walk in the park from your house:D

I just stumbled on this thread. I'm in Toledo Ohio if you're ever gonna be close by let me know. The XS isn't road ready yet but you never know if I'll have something else to ride.

Flatlander

I kinda have been using this thread (since it's in my area) as a post where your going and see if anyone is intrested and kinda go from there?????

Possibly use the "Title" as where your going in general and a date?????

Well went through on 21st and the 26th, but didn't stay long. Actually was just driving through.


Made the trip to Connecticut, 1800 + miles round trip and only one hang up. Second day of the trip and had to replace Dad's rear tube and tire. Put us a couple hours behind schedule.

Was not able to make it up to the rally while I was out there, but there is allways next year. I was hoping to see another XS on the road.

Maby see one tomarrow on the ride?

The ride starts at Cummings Harley Davison with registration at 11:00 am. The police escorted ride begins at 1:00 pm. The ride fee is $20.00 per bike plus $5.00 for rider. The ride will go through Genesee County and Lapeer County. Rain or shine.
I just herd this info on the radio and thought I should post it.

Oh by the way the Gilmore Car Museum is a must!!! "Vintage" Bike show or not, it is really a nice place.

I'm intrested in a ride today. The weather dosen't look the greatest, but not bad. 100-200 miles sounds good. Anybody intrested? Oh ya, and the Gilmore show is coming up on June 12 & 13th.

Riding through the thumb area, we beat the rain, decided that it was time for lunch and was heading to Bay City. All the sudden one of my friends was far behind. His bike was running on one cyclinder. Come to find out that his 2003 Road Star collapsed a lifter, which leads me to a question. How do you remove the lifters from that thing?
All in all it was a good ride though.

hey flatlander!
You will have little luck getting anyone to find you the way you are posting.

If you notice the first post in this thread, it is about looking for someone to ride in CT (that's Connecticut) which is located in the Northeast, and thus in the Northeast section of the forum. You are looking for someone to ride with in MI, which is in the Midwest, thus you should post in the Midwest section of the forum. I guessing not too many Michigan Xsives will look for a weekend ride in Connecticut.

And, if you want to organize a ride then you should start your own new post. Posting in a 3 year old thread for a ride the next weekend or next month won't get you too many views.

HTH :)
