However, I can tell you that the reason I would attend, is for the ride and the people.  It ain't the food and it ain't the hotel.


Well, last time, everyone got up and went off on their own thing...leaving me a bit Headscratch about why we got together in the first place.

The largest part of the day alone on the road?

Oh, and food does matter.  I like good eats.  Like the hotel to not be a dump either.  A hot tub after a long day in the saddle is really nice.  Cool




How about Red Lodge MT?  Lots of great roads on the way and near by (Beartooth, Chief Joseph, Big Horn Summit, Glacier) plus you could do Jellystone park.


If I remember Red Lodge, there's pretty much nothing there to accommodate a group...or what's there likely is booked long in advance as it's a small town.

If I went to an event, I would probably do this too, but only because I tend to ride at a C pace most of the time, and I don't think there are many in this group who like to doddle along.  Bigsmile

With that being said, in an ideal world, I would try to find 1 or 2 riders beforehand who were also interested in a leisurely pace, and ride with them instead. Just too far away from home to try and ride of the edge of my capabilities and risk a mistake.

Zero, its called interacting with people later in the eveing. You just don 't seem to get everyone isn ' you and everyone doesn't feel lile group riding id an obligation or fun. To each his or her own. I like meeting people later while having a beer or iced tea. I scratch my head thst you can 't accept or understand that.

I just assumed that you were drunk but I agree with you a anyway. I prefer to ride solo and hang with the group in the evening.

Red Lodge is wonderful... good eats, fair number of motels including the bike-friendly Yodeler.  And the scenery/roads.... Inlove

(I'd still prefer Utah, but wouldn't complain were MT the destination.)  Cool

I get that, but for me, I can ride ALONE 24/7/365.  When I'm at a meet, it's nice to be able to share the experience with 1-2 other people.

The whole "that's awesome" experience kinda looses it's meaning when you have to recount it hours later to people who weren't there to see it with you.

Three guys do a road....each walks (sic) away with their own impressions.  Each sees their own thing, and when they stop for a break they can relive the adventure.

One guy goes alone, who does he share the experience with...other people who weren't there to see it with their own eyes?

Last national we were more focused on turning Chili into a Borg than talking about the day's ride(s).

I tried to strike up a conversation with you in Sparta, but your face was buried in your phone.  


The best location would be one with no internet or cell service.

Hell I had nothing to do with that chili deal, I talked to a bunch of people about my rides, oh wait,you had your bike in the back of a pickup truck so  I guess you couldn't talk about your ride , because you didn't ride , you drove
