Just saw this thread. I live in Lawrence KS and would be game for a get together in the Midwest. We're getting together a ride for this Sunday, July 6to Cassoday, KS. They usually draw 5000+ bikes to this ride which is scheduled for the first Sunday of each month (weather permitting). All kinds of bikes including the Big Four from Japan, Brits, Antiques, Ducati's, Harley's etc. Great curvy roads with literally hundreds of bikes coming from every direction. Let me know if anyone from this area is planning on going.
