Actually I joked to the Wife about doing just that to next year's National in Arkanasa.  But I would park the trailer somewhere a few hundred miles away so I can "ride" in.   Bigsmile


Some folks did that in 2004, if memory serves.

I would fully support a Utah meet, by the way.

My Suggestion is to work in a 5th location into the rotation, possibly the next year Custer rolls around, Or Colorado then go from there ,  Ie if it was Custer  used to make a spot
1) New west Coast meet
2) Arkansas
3) Colorado or Utah meet
4)Eastern Meet
5) Custer meet

Or If Colorado's spot was used
 IE
1) New Western Meet
2) Eastern Meet
3) Custer
4) Arkansas
5)Colorado
Or move the rotation around
 Shrug
Just a suggestion  couch

The rotation was established to give the most number of people the most opportunity to attend, and it's worked for a while.  But if attendance is dropping, why not throw it out for a free-for-all for 2012?  Let the majority pick the location, try to make it the biggest one ever (coz the world's gonna end anyway).  If that whole process ends up sucking, we can go back to the rotation in 2013 and maybe add the 2012 location (if it was a new one and well-loved) to the stable as a replacement or a fifth destination.

Yep, that is painful. Pretty in a few places .. but painful on a bike.  Over rated MC ride in my opinion.

maybe there's a hotel on Utah Highway 12 in the middle of nowhere.

Being in the middle of nowhere would give the event an aura similar to the one felt by the characters in Close Encounters of a third Kind who were drawn to the mashed potato mountain in South Dakota  Bigsmile

Boulder View Inn in Torrey, at the top of the wonderful Hwy 12. 24 to the east is great as well.  Actually, the Boulder only has 11 rooms, but there are many other hotels in town.

Utah would be fine by me, I can hit some tasty stuff on the way out there. We would have to hear the crying from certain people about having to cross some flatland from the west coast to get there  Rolleyes( like nobody from the east has to cross flatlands  Lol Lol) Great location BTW
