2011 Roadglide.org member rally/party

The idea has been thrown around about having a big rally/meeting/party so all the members from the forums can meet. From the looks of the member map (located HERE) we are strung out across north america and maybe a little heavy towards the east coast.

So I figure we should put it up to a vote, and see what most people think about it. We can try to have 1 big rally, or maybe split it up for the first time, and have 3 or 4 smaller rally's in hope that more people can make it. I know most people only have so much vacation time each year, and have to plan way ahead to put in for time off during the summer. Hopefully a meeting with other road glide riders would be something that interests you, but if not then you don't have to vote on the poll.

Im throwing everything into 1 poll right now, to get a feel of what everyone thinks. Down the road, we can start making plans if we need to break it up and where to go from there.

If you have any suggestions, please give them. Keep in mind, this is just to get a general idea, not to make plans in stone right now. I had in mind to have a national rally at the H-D museum in Milwakee, or maybe even Sturgis, but thats something we will vote on later.

Rally

The Road King Riders have a yearly meet. They move it around so everyone is close at one time or another. WV in 2009 Utah 2010 Vermont 2011.

They set up a block of rooms and someone then sets up the rides.

I plan on going this year. I heard they are a total blast.

rally and Road Glide Flag

I voted for one with smaller ones but I think one big one should be planned. If groups want to get together
they can but I would put the effort into one big one.

The Road King Riders have a flag that has been traveling the country for the past 4 years. The idea is for members
to meet up with other members to hand off the flag and to take it to a new place. Eventually you hand it off
again and meet another person.

The flag travels with a log book so you can write about your experience with the flag. It also has a map so you can
document where the flag traveled. It is made of nylon and is lightweight so it is not too hard to carry even if
you have a full load.



I will volunteer to get a flag made if this sounds like something we are interested in. My signature is right
above the "G" along with a drawing of one of my dogs!

It's been a real group builder along with the ride in for the Road King Riders.

I like the idea of one big national rally along with several smaller regional rallies. Who knows, you might can plan a trip that includes one of the smaller rallies as well as the big one. (not at the same time, of course) It would give you more opportunities to at least make one and meet some new friends.

How about annual regional Rallies and then every 3 years or so plan a big blow out rally scheduled around the bigger national rallies (Sturgis, Daytona, etc.) The other thing is even though they are regional (NE, SE, Central, NW, SW) all members are welcome to any of them that way those who have more time to travel can participate in multiple events or tie their vacations in with the rallies.

A national rally tied to Sturgis or Daytona is a good idea, but so are are smaller rallies too. The smaller ones could be tied to smaller rallies that are more local.

Thumbs up my votes in as YEA!

I mentioned before in a previous post somewhere about using the HD Museum as a rally point. I was there in June and met up with dklanecky there for lunch (great guy) and found they have an events room that they rent out to museum members. I think some members here may be museum members and maybe even if we invite Willy G we can get a group rate discount or let us have it F-R-E-E once they see what we're planning. After all I'm sure the RoadGlide's popularity has increased because of the membership here and HD would be more than happy to show us their appreciation...don't you think?

I'd definitely do the museum again if there was a rally there!

I agree with hotrodad! The HD museum would be a nice starting point. I've wanted a reason to go there and this would probably do it. I live only 300 miles from Sturgis but haven't been there in a long time. I do ride the Black hills when I can and it is awesome riding. But during the 3 weeks of Sturgis it is to heavily populated for me.

I really like the Milwaukee idea Chainsaw. Maybe plan it in the fall when the trees are changing. The family vacations would be over by then also so planning may be a little easier for some.
