Won't be able to attend this due to my (track coaching) schedule. But I wanted to give two big thumbs up to Mike (Patriot) for arranging this as a damn fine and totally frugal event. If I could have swung it, I'd have have been sorely tempted to make the trek down for the weekend. What a great way to kick off the summer? You boyz and gurlz have fun! :yahoo:

I love frugal events...:D

...and have some magic marker on masking tape for a name tag! :lol:

You guys have a great time! :clapping:

Hey Mike,

I just talked to Debbie and registered my room from Thursday thru Saturday evenings. Still early, but I am so ready for

SFO 2012 at the Hub. Thanks Mike for putting this together! Hope to see everyone in a few months.

We are trying to plan the trip, Have never attended a FJR rally. It would be me and a 10yo 2up on the FJR and the wife would be ridding a Kawasaki Vulcan 500, she is concerned that she might not be welcome. Would anyone have a problem with a non FJR at the rally. (she would ride a FJR if her feet could touch the ground)
I am a firefighter who rides a motorcycle… why should I worry about my cholesterol !

is your wife hot...post pics including wearing gear and I'll let you know :rolleyes:

really, all are welcome...well at least metric bikes :D

Harleys and Beemers are fine too as long as they take rooms in the back and refrain from using the public bathrooms in the lobby :P

seriously, it's that you ride, not what

I'll have you know that our Patriot (Mike) is a nut with no morals to question.
You'd be wise to keep that in mind when you meet him. :P


No doubt you will enjoy your time together.
Have fun!!

a private room for 60 is reserved for who wishes to have dinner Fri and/or Sat nite

it's just a get together with ordering off the menu and pay your own bill

I believe I can arrange to have it charged to the room so no waiting for the alcoholics to get to their hidden beer :rolleyes:

I have a question. Are the room prices given per night or is that the price for all 3 nights? I'm guessing its per night, but one could read it both ways

I've ridden the Ozarks and they are fantastic roads there

We get pretty cheap here in Arkansas, with the masking tape marker name tags and all, but it aint that cheap.....its per night.

Somehow, the toll free number for the HUB on the Rally announcement is wrong. It should be 1-800-597-9963; NOT 1-800-587-9963. If you call the posted number, you get a number disconnected message back. Would someone please edit the number and make the correction?

And before I forget, I will be there with the wife (room is reserved)
