PNW Summer Rally

Why not have a rally/ride of NW riders this summer? Let's get this organized and do it!!! Sound off if you're interested.

I would be so into this idea if I still lived in the PNW. I miss my mountains.

Hmm, good idea. Where might this take place, looks like I am quite a ways from you.

Date, route, destination, duration are all "to be determined". Depends on participation....where everyone is located, what's a central point, etc. Have to say, lack of response is not encouraging. Thought for sure we'd have more members want to ride.

I'm about 70 miles north of Portland.

Just finished riding Hwy 20, the North Cascades Scenic Highway. Lots of bikes going both ways....mostly HD and adventure/sport. Small groups, mostly singles like me. Would've been great with a few others.

Well, been 10 days since I brought up the idea and, sadly, response has been zilch. So, will just ride alone, alot, 'til the weather rolls in.

Ride safe all.

It's too late in the summer for me to participate. Apple harvest starts in about 4 weeks and I'm pretty busy now. But I'd be game for next summer.

I've been finding group rides through meetup.com -- there's a Seattle bunch doing a kind of cool sounding urban ride this weekend, going to the Jimi Hendrix and Bruce & Brandon Lee memorial sites, for instance. I rode with them last weekend for a romp around Camano Island. Great group, really fun ride. Nothing near you? Start a meetup down there. Lot less trouble than creating a whole rally!

Are you still up for this? I found it almost impossible to arrange this sort of thing when I was with a different website. But, that website was exclusive to 750s so perhaps that, in itself is why.
I tried on at least two occasions to get a PNW meet going. No interest. Disheartening.
That being said, I am all for it. I've seen sooooooo many annual meets with people on the east(ish) coast that I don't see why it can't be done here, too. The PNW has fantastic roads and scenery.
I am primarily free to do any Friday through Sunday ride just for giggles but would be open to longer affairs in any of the PNW states.
Count me in!

There’s a PNW Vulcan club on Facebook. They do many rides and bike night activities. Check them out.
