Is there any contingency plan for this forum going off-line?

I have text/phone numbers for all of the main players who have been coming or came to the rally since I have been hosting.

Then they know other guys and can spread the word.

I'm looking in now and then Howard.

Marty, do you have my number? Just checked my phone and I have your Windstream email and your gmail but no phone.

Sure, why not? Right along with retirement and winning the lottery

Hi Mike,
Yes I can recommend retirement. Are you thinking of going to Colorado rally? You are closer by a couple hundred miles

Were coming.....

My BIL Nick and I have the Colorado rally on our bucket list. We've already discussed it.

Problem is I don't have enough vacation time until I retire.

We will target 2022 or 2023.

Don't let it die before we can join.

Reality is if everybody who's attended one or been very interested but not made it since I started hosting, we'd get 30 bikes or more. I enjoy doing it and look forward to next year.

Fits a good niche for comfortable riding weather in the middle of summer that guys can migrate and make the pilgrimage to from hotter climes.

Just have to put up with a couple hot days on the road getting there and going home. But well worth the in between.

I like the small rallies Bonz. I'll be back. Not sure if it'll be next year but as I said, I enjoy the smaller rallies.

Had a great time up North after last years rally. That 1500 mile run back home was a killer though. Glad my sis is in Denver.

I hear you on that Greg. always do our best to extend the hand everybody, but the numbers have always worked out under 20 riders. It was a long conga line at the Kremmling rally, but we made it work!
