2016 Rallies



Thanks, as usual, to all the organizers!!!!!

For the past several years, we have had up to around 30 riders come to the larger gatherings. We are mostly KLR riders, but all is invited. Riders make their own arrangements with either the campground or host's property we are staying at. If you know you are going to be coming to a specific ride, and would prefer to rent a small cabin (most motorcycle campgrounds have them), you may want to call and reserve it before they are taken.

March Moto Madness is held near Tellico Plains and is actually run by a friend of ours, Dan Dickey, which owns a motorcycle rental place out of Townsend, TN Home - GSM Motorent This ride last year had nearly 500 participants at their main site (including overflow at Cherohala Mountain Trails Campground - Camp Grounds). You pay a fee to participate and various meals and your lodging are included.

Roads & Trails is the new name for Slaying the Dragon. It is organized by CMA's Fast Lane Group. It is similar to the way we do things.....you take care of lodging and food with the campground. Ridir Frith (David) organizes the Dual-Sport riding.

If you are new to the forum, the organizer will make a 'thread' usually a month or so before the ride giving specifics about location, costs, possible tours being offered, keeping tally of riders coming, etc. Dates normally show the starting day as a Friday, but several people like to 'Early Bird' it on Thursday....... Hope to see ya at some of these great rides in the Southeast!

If you want to add a ride to the list, let us know!

Two more rides added in purple.

Jerry Attrick will be organizing the Bootlegger DS Run (see in calendar). It will involve riding and camping in a large loop, staying in multiple campgrounds along the route. The route cuts through 7 of our own rally's riding areas. The NE portion of the route is not covered by any of our rallies. If you are limited to only a few rides this year, this may be one to hit! If you cannot ride the entire route, you could potentially ride parts of the route with Dave and others.

Stolen Pig Rally, Matewan, WV; and Horizons Unlimited Travelers Meeting, Appomattox, VA; same weekend as the Romney Cycles Camp And Ride (end of April, first of May).

Unfortunate scheduling, IMHO; all three events simultaneously conducted.

Appreciate the rundown, CherokeeChuck!

ExChina,

I know you posted a few months ago but here it is for you and others reviewing
this thread and considering going.

I go the generic WalMart Lake n' trail stuff as I don't camp hardcore.
That being said most motorcycle campers have the same simple demands as hikers.
Bedrolls that roll up tight n' small. Lightweight low profile tenting, stuff that packs
down to backpack or seat top sizes, easy n' quick to pitch in the fading daylight, etc.

A t shirt becomes a pillow case, the bike can be part of a lean-to, using what's already
along for the ride reduces packing and total supplies needed to strap on the bike.

Size, weight, function, and importance dictate what each person chooses to bring
along on the mule's back. Fish-rods that break down in sections, beer, U decide
whatcha needs. Out in the bush, know your plant life WELL or bring a roll of TP.......
Ouchie.
