Fourth of July Motorcycle Ride

Last week, I said that this year’s ride was all scheduled and that a team of volunteers had already done all of the work so that we would have a good time together.  I also asked you let me know if you were interested in attending.

The number of slots for the ride filled up in less than 3 days.  I have an Alternate List that will be used if people change their minds, have a scheduling conflict, or decide they don’t want to join us for whatever reason.  The list is also first-come, first-served.

I’ve sent out the information on the ride to those who will be riding with us.  If you have not received the information on the ride, please contact me so that I can make sure to get it to you sooner rather than later.  If a spot opens up, I’ll get the info packet to the latest person to join our motley crew.

If you’d like to share your thoughts on this or some other topic, please contact me.

As always, thanks for your continued support!

2020 Fourth of July Ride

After giving things a lot of thought and hearing from you on our annual Fourth of July ride, this post will let you know that we’re going to hold it this year.  However, there will be some changes to how we’ve done things in past years.

This time around, a team of volunteers has already done the work required for us to enjoy a nice ride to celebrate our country’s independence.  That means I have to give a tip of my helmet to Michelle, Gary, Vanessa, Susan, Quondrel, Maria, and Sarah.  Thank you, one and all!

If you’d like to join us on our ride, please contact me.  Just as we’ve done in previous years, it’s first-come, first-served for the available spots on the ride.

If’ you’d like to share your thoughts with me, or offer your opinion, please contact me.

As always, thanks for your continued support!

Spring Ride Location

In a surprise, come-from-behind win, the Michigan Great Lakes location walked away with the most votes.  Several of you told me that you’d been there and it was some of the prettiest scenery you’d seen anywhere.

Given the northern latitudes we’ve picked for our Spring Ride, we’ll need to give the region a bit of extra time to thaw out from winter’s cold grasp.  If those of you who live in the Michigan area could keep me updated on the weather and road conditions, I’d appreciate it.  Please contact me as things warrant.

If you’d like to let me know what you think about this or some other topic, please contact me.  I read all of your notes, but I can only respond to a limited number due to time constraints.

As always, thanks for your continued support!

Spring Ride Locations

I’ve received over 100 different suggestions for the location of our Spring Ride.  I narrowed the field down to the top vote-getters.  And they are: 1) Yellowstone, 2) Arizona Desert Loop, and 3) Michigan Great Lakes area.

Please cast another ballot for one of those three so we can find out where we’re going this year.  To vote, please contact me.  I’ll leave the voting open for a couple of weeks and then let you know where we’re headed.

Thanks to each of you for taking the time to vote and for sharing some good ideas with me about future locations.

If you’d like to share your opinions with me, please contact me.

As always, thanks for your continued support!

Spring Ride Final Vote Tally

The votes recorded last week showed a 15-1 Yea preference for a Spring Ride.  The votes that came in this past week raised that margin to roughly 22 to 1.  I’m officially calling the votes received to date as the final vote tally.

Now that you’ve decided you want a ride, please share your top three favorite locations.  Several of you asked if we could re-visit a place we’ve already ridden and the answer is yes, we can.

Please send in your suggested locations and I’ll tally them.  If you contact me, I’ll be able to tabulate the votes easier than if you try to send them to me any other way.

If you’d like to let me know what you think about an issue we’ve discussed on this site, please contact me.

As always, thanks for your continued support!
