How did you know I would answer?!?
I've been on quite a few dealership sponsored rides but never to a rally. I am a big fan of the charity rides and try to do as many rides as time and money allow but as everyone knows time and money don't always sync. Sometimes you have time, sometimes you have money but you don't always have both at the same time. I actually missed out on a Frosty Balls ride this morning but Mother Nature stepped in and it snowed last night.
I will be going to the Evil Knievel Fest this spring in Butte Montana and am hoping my first rally will be as much fun as the rides have been.
Most rides (and most likely rallies) post their info at participating dealerships and on facebook. And most of them give the ride information including registration details, schedule and ride map. You can also info about most of the major rides in just about every state with the events listings and calendars on motorcyclemonster.com and lets-ride.com.
I noticed looking at both the websites above that Helen GA has a couple of Rallies scheduled this year. The first one is the Victory Rally; is this the one you're planning on going to? If so note that this is sponsored by the Victory Motorcycle Club. They are a good group but if you go and you end up signing up with them make sure you keep coming back to this forum. Both forums are good and have a lot of info but it's good to have access to more than one so you can get more ideas/opinions/assistance when needed.
Just out of curiousity did you build your gazebo? If so did you do it from a kit or plans? My old one fell victim to a micro-burst (Utah version of storm force winds that last 20-30 minutes) so I'm looking a putting in a new one this spring and yours really caught my attention. I'm not sure if the design is what caught me or the possibility of sitting back and having a beer in a gazebo did...
