I am so tempted to try and get myself to this festive gathering. It's about 10 hours from where I am outside of Chicago and being a "newbie" I've been working my way up to 3-4 hour rides lately having put almost 2,000 miles on my bike in the couple of months of owning my RT. So by October I could probably do it in two days of 5 hour road time with very relaxed riding of 2-3 hours separating gas and food breaks.
However, being this late in the game, I'd have to get a hotel away from Iron Stables being as though I just discovered this rally (sorry, UN-rally). And never having been to a rally I guess I'm just riding down to meet all of you having no idea what goes on or what I'll do (somehow I think I'll figure it out). So forgive me if I sound stoopid, but what goes on at a rally (or particularly at this un-rally) and what will I do for three days?!
And staying at a hotel away from Iron Stables, what exactly will be "the thing to do" when I get there. I mean, I guess I'd just park my bike and walk around trying to find all of you!? Hahahaha...
Amazing that I don't know what I'm getting into but being drawn to it so deeply! The only thing I would definitely want to have by then is an AeroStitch Roadcrafter suit for the trip! Perhaps seeing as though I'm discovering this "sport" so late in the game this summer and I'm still too green at all of this, I should wait until next year to engulf myself in this insanity!
