Here are the options again folks, I think 30 days is plenty of time to vote.
Please vote on the prefered Date and Place.
I will tell you, if it is the first week in September as some had previously requested, I will not be able to do it as I will be on vacation with the family at Disney.

If we want to do the AMA Superbike round at VIR while on the rally, it will need to be the weekend of Sept. 17th/18th.
VIR is about a 3 hour ride from the Blue Ridge Motorcycle Campground, or about 2 hours from the KOA campgrounds in Boone NC.

I personally think it would be a great idea to try and encapsulate the AMA round in the rally.

It would also look exceptionally cool for a whole bunch of hopped up FZ6's arriving at VIR enmasse

What do you all think?

Ok folks the Blue Ridge Parkwat campground is booked for the weekend of 16th-18th of September with a bunch of Hardley riders.
They do have the following weekend the 23rd-25th.
I haven't checked with TWO or KOA yet.

Fall Rally

Ok folks, it is getting time to let us know who will be attending the fall rally as it appears that the date will be the 17th, 18th and 19th of September and the only place that can accomodate us is the KOA in Boone NC.
As it happens, I have stayed there before and it is a great place that has 1 & 2 room cabins and ample camping space, with well thought out ammenities.

Prices range from $40-55 for the cabiins and $20-25 for tent space.
The link to the actual KOA site is in the poll thread.

The reasoning behind the dates is that it coincides with the AMA races at VIR Raceway which is less than a 3 hour ride from the campsite, (or about a tankful on an FZ6) for those that would like to experience that. After I have numbers, I will contact Yamaha and let them know we will be coming and see if we can get some special parking or pit passes, or something :a2

I would suggest that after we know how many are going that we contact the resort and try and get some kind of block booking discount?

Once that has been negotiated or not as the case may be, individuals can call and book directly under the FZ6 owners group name.

A waiver will need to be signed and brought with you, I will post it later for download, along with an emergency contact sheet, along with any important medical needs info should someone get hurt, that will also be posted on the site.
These sheets will be held by a couple of to be determined ride leaders.

I would also suggest two riding groups, 1 for a more sedate touring pace and 1 for those that like a more spirited pace.

These will need both ride leaders and sweepers to be on chatterboxes or similar compatible FRS radio systems (Volunteers needed, and you don't need to be from Kentucky to Volunteer) :twofinger .

Although this is not mandatory and everyone will obviously be able to ride wherever and whenever they want.

I will also go ahead and post a suggested preparation sheet for the trip for those that have not done this type of thing before, i.e bike and personal eguipment suggestions. That is all they will be, suggestions, and are plagurised from other rallies I have been on.

If I have missed anything let me know, I have not organised anything like this before, only been on few, and did stay in a Holiday Inn Express last night.

Wel folks, the poll is closed and some 24 people voted, now is the time to belly up to the bar and let me know who is planning on going?

The date will be the VIR Raceway AMA Superbike race weekend Sept 17th-19th and the resort will be the KOA Campground in Boone NC as the Blue Ridge Parkway motorcycle resort is booked with a bunch of Hardly Rideables.

Post a reply so we get an idea on numbers.

Ok folks, as no-one has contacted me regarding this rally I am stepping away as the organiser, someone else is more than welcome to step in.

I have gone ahead and signed up for a Hare Scramble that weekend instead.
