Hello all,
  • It seems that El Toro Joe's stepped up to organize the Appalacian Camping Meet at Breaks this year. Breaks is a great place to ride and a great place in and of itself...so if you can go...definitely go. However, the camping meet is scheduled May 18- 20. I'm just curious if I changed the original Ramble weekend to the previous weekend of the 12th/13th...whether that would throw people off who've already asked for vacation time, want to be home for Mother's Day, or whatever. Let me know pronto.
  • In a different thread, I said that the Ramble would have TWO DAYS...SATURDAY AND SUNDAY RIDING. Typically, the Ramble has been on Saturday with Sunday as a "get home' day. I'm just wondering whether anybody else would be riding two days...or just be intent on riding one day only. Let me know ASAP!
I have a poll up above so please answer it only if you are thinking of riding the Ramble...it will be a public poll.

Results of poll are not binding on me...I just want some information to make choices from. Have at it.

Mark, I might be able to squeeze a weekend run in the 12/13th; it's too early to tell. Definite plans for me right now are the 17-20 of May - I'll be in Robbinsville / Franklin, NC. This was already on the books before Joe got his lazy butt in gear...

I can't be gone Mother's day and May 26 is my son's graduation so my only weekend is 18, 19, 20. I was planning on the ramble but if it moves, no sweat. I'll go to Breaks and see you at Hooterville instead. :)

I can probably change my vacation and would like to do both. I'll give it a 50/50 chance that I'll actually get to do it, but I'd like to try.

Joe - let me know what your travel plans going down are. I am thinking about swinging east to Asheville to see Grumpy on the way down.

That VFRD crowd is a good mix of hooligans. The first year I had the '04 I get sucked into one of the lead groups, and did a decent job of defending the FJR's reputation - after all the "is that a bmw?" remarks... great fellas.

So...besides me there's only 3 people looking at coming to this thing?

That's fine with me...cuz that's right about the perfect number...but I thought more might be thinking about it. :D

I would love to be there but if I did two trips in one month and one of them on MOTHERS DAY.......I dont think that make Momma very happy. I would have to be a different month.
Thanks anyway, Bryan
P.S. Let the pussy whip jokes begin :P

Dude, I'm in the same predicament... I can do one trip that month and Mother's Day is NOT an option. I also will only be able to do one day of riding on the Ramble... I was planning Friday down, Sat twisties, and Sun back.

Now, I could maybe do the camp trip instead of the Ramble... but first I need to figure out where that's going to be.
