Thinking about hosting a KLR gathering

Ok guys, I was asked by someone about hosting a KLR gathering here in upstate NY. I've got a great area to host it, lots of level wooded area for tents, room for a few rv's, access to lots of old farm roads and seasonal roads. Miles mountain isn't to far away and they have an 8 mile enduro loop for the more accomplished riders. I'm fairly centrally located as far as the east coast goes here in upstate NY. I'm easy to find and close to services. I would actually love to host an event here really. I think it would be great, sort of like that event up in Maine they have every year, or so I've heard over on ADV. Your thoughts and opinions would be appreciated, if there is enough interest, I'll start the planning.

There is one in PA every year also,(off the dsn site)

I have been to the southern most point in the US on the east side, and the west side, so I might as well head north a time or two. But it will have to be warm weather for me to head north.

Sounds like a good ideal, something like TDT, TDP, TDA,

Hey, a canadian invasion ! don't worry guys, it's always 10 degree's cooler in the summer up on that hill, almost always a good breeze, if not, grab your shorts and go down to the falls and cool off a little, of course that water is just above hockey quality in august :mrgreen:

KLR650.COM is one of the sponsors of this site, (at least they advertize here) and they sell the mefos. Click on the link above.(at the top of the page)

Sure we can change tires. I could set up something so we have at least an awning to work under and even have a tech day and change some doo's. I'd like a set of those mefo's myself. I think for my use, they would be better than the D606's.

I am going to help arrange a Honda Rebel event in Helen Georgia the first weekend in may. Anyone on anybike is welcome, I am thinking of putting together a poker run (ghost riders welcome) for a the family of my cousin who has been in a coma since 1998 after hitting a loose cow in the road. Once I know the details of the event I will post it, I also plan to put together a KLR event in the future as well.

OK I'm planning the first and third weekends of May. (third is TDT) (tour de tellico)

My sister-inlaw bought a rebel a few months ago (had never riden a bike before she bought it) (and only a couple times after she took the MSC), but I'll try and get a foursome together to ride down for it. Hellen is an awesome place.
