Greyhound and I were posting about this event but we lost those posts when the dbase got wiped out. I'd love to go to this, from Tampa it'd definitely be the longest ride I've ever done and just the adventure of it all is appealing.
Need to start firming up some lodging plans, vacation time requests, etc.
Kevin...I need to talk to my buddy in Atlanta with the GS and see what his plans are. Have you been to the BMWMOA web site to read the rally information? Check it out. www.bmwmoa.org. Quite frankly the worst part of going to the Beemer rally every year is the heat!! July is not the greatest month of the year for a long tour, unless it is out west where it gets cool in the mountains.
To answer your question...I haven't made any plans. Most times I don't. We stop when we stop and I have never had a problem finding a hotel. The route planning is the biggest thing. With the amount of time it will take to go up and back...we'll probably need to do a lot of Interstate going and coming and do our back road touring once we get to the New England area. I lived up there for about 6 years so I have a good idea of the places to ride.
I'll talk to my buddy Jack over the week end and let you know.
Think you can or think you can't, either way you will suceed.
