Hi Ben,
No discussion. Where are you leading us on the memorial week end?

I haven't a clue...I am not a very organized person for leading a rally...but it seemed to me that SE Ohio was an excellent rally...just a thought..

Oh look we have a suggested area I recall that was the one organised by Mark based in Cambridge OH. It was an excellent rally.
Does this mean we are running out of new places to explore?

I dont know..theres only been one rally there so i doubt we have exhausted the field of all possibilities...I know the tradition of this rally is to change venues every year but lets see..at least 3 ralllies in PA..3 in WVA..1 in VT...1 in VA..2 in NY...so theres been a fair amount of repetition already...
I do not seek to be a organizer..but did want to get the conversation started..but typically its assumed that whomever is leading the discussion....but pls I dont want the responsibility...

Putting on a rally is a huge task. XS East does not put itself on. Thanks to those who have done it in the past.

Hey Ben
With nearly a foot of snow on the ground and -12C it is a good time to start thinking of our spring rally.
Are there any good rides in New Jersey? if we are throwing out places for others to organise as I have never taken the bike there.

Phil

Keep in mind that the majority of these rallies are on the east coast..SE Ohio was a fluke of sorts but turned out to be some awesome roads there..given my recent wreck and injuries..i can no longer tolerate LD rides and sitting in a saddle all day long..so where ever it is ..I am trailering...
