- Yes, nametags
- Shorter rides which provides free time for socializing or shopping or getting the bike fixed.
- Having a location that had shops, a battlefield, and curvy roads made the rally more appealing to riders and passengers. Gettysburg set the bar pretty high.
- Recommend radios for ride leaders and sweeps.
- Inform the un-herded cats they need to arrive at the start of the ride with a full tank of gas and a helmet (just in case we ride into a helmet state.)
- If Kick-Stands-Up is 8:00 a.m., kick your stands up at 8:00 a.m. and go.
- Rotate location East, Middle, West
- Schedule mid-week, Tue, Wed. Thur.
- Setup a Rally Oversight Group (ROG) to make decisions and advise organizers based on lessons learned.
- Potential organizers submit plans to ROG for review (Plans include location, hotel, restuarants for banquets, ride routes, local attractions, potential sponsors, vendors, names of committed organizers.)
- Oversight group present viable plans to members to vote on.
- Try to have more fun (bet it can't be done)

Chris made it seem so easy, but he paid attention to a lot of details and had good help. To keep the event "easy" and sustainable, some structure and formulas are necessary so those who follow Chris can do as well.

2017 FLTRXS, Givi V56 Topcase, Windvest 10", National Cycle Hand Deflectors, Rapid Transit Tank Bag. My last bike was 2014 Triumph Trophy SE. Before that: 2010 FLTRX.

-find some instruments for any musicians amongst us for the picnic table entertainment
