... we had ~50 people at the NATIONAL meet.

The R6 forum had 125+ this year, down from about 400 last year.

I'm just saying...

How many active members does STN really have (people that are on here daily, post, etc). Maybe 250? I don't think 50 is a bad number for a mid-week gathering.

Sport-tourers are all talk, no action.  I heard half of those R6 riders rode wheelies all the way there.

Did he ride his race prepped R6 to the meet? What was the percentage of people who did ride their bikes to the R6 meet?

Well, I doubt he did 'cause I think he took 3 bikes to the thing. No idea on the others.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not propping the R6 forum or anything... I just kinda think it's a bummer that a bike-specific forum had such a big rallye compared to The Home of Triple Digit Sightseeing. Wink

Okay, how many of us have to show up to a national meet to make you happy?  This year's meet was how far from home for you?  400 miles?  When you make a meet further than a day's ride from home, then you can start bitching about people not showing up, okay?  

Hope to see in Custer in '11.
