Spring M n G in the Loess Hills

Its that time of year when the days get short, the nights(and days!)get colder and thoughts of warm motorcycling start dancing thru your head.

I'm putting together the spring meet n greet in the Loess Hills. Dates will be Friday May 15th and Saturday May 16th. Dinner on Friday night, your on your own but Saturday I'm in talks with john at boxer BBQ to rent out the whole place. He will need a final head count but if I can confirm 20+ people, the whole thing is ours. His space isn't that big but its pit BBQ done right.

For right now, the two hotels I'm looking into for group rates are the Ramada on 72nd. This is the one who wanted to host SWV so they can be accommodating. The other is the Hyatt downtown. I've stayed there and its really nice, breakfast is excellent, free and they give good group deals. They also have a well maintained parking garage. Both are similarly priced.

Saturday I will host a group ride through the hills with a lunch stop and then back in time for dinner. There will be mini maps available for those wanting to stray away from annoying yellow bikes and pork tenderloins the size of Pam Anderson's... tracks of land.:sly:

I am fully aware that ONGs spring BBQ run is two weeks prior to this. That's why I'm pushing this one back a couple of weeks to May. Also because I'll be at his BBQ run too lol.

I will be creating a Facebook event shortly for those with the mypages and faceyspaces...

I'd have to add a day or two for that! But I might pick your brain about it too.

Nothing would surprise me with the amount of things I've seen going down the road. I will say the eastern Nebraska/western Iowa area, you do see significantly less water related fauna either by/near or on(in a flattened fashion) the road.

Just a quick update, Im in the finalization stage for our host hotel. It will be the downtown hyatt. Ive managed to negotiate a discounted price on the rooms and since we are on bikes, they are halving the parking garage fee. Im getting it setup so you guys can either call or do a code online. I should have that all straightened out by Monday. Please don't call to book yet until I post that it is ready.

For those of us that went to Memphis this past year, our downtown is a lot like that. The hotel is right across the street from Ted & Wallys, hands down the best ice cream around. Everyday is new flavors and there is always a line the later in the evening it gets. For those of us that like a good brew, Upstream is on the other side of Ted & Wallys. Down the street from that is Rock Bottom and somewhere in the middle and slightly west is Billy Froggs.

We do have an awesome pastry place(maple bacon...) called Pettit's. This place is two things, Awesome donuts and a requirement of previous felonies for employment qualification lol

If anyone wants to stay an extra day and leave on Monday, let me know and we can put together some more riding. You would be surprised how even short 150mile rides in the hills can take all day.
