From reading the post on here it looks like there are a bunch of Texas folks heading to the UR. I'm going with a buddy either the 6th or early on the 7th from the DFW area. I was just wondering when everyone else is planning on heading out, and are there any groups getting together to make the trip. I see a lot of folks from South Texas are going to attend. Just wondering what the rest of Texas was doing.
Also, does anyone know of any particular hotel people will be staying at in ES? Camping is out bad back.

Heading out of DFW maybe Sat. for sure Sunday. We want to be there for early Check-in.

I want to go Saturday, but Miss Vicki will be at a meeting out of town & may not get in till late Fri or early Sat. Which case, we'll be gone Sunday.

Leaving early in the AM so I can do the Talimena and the Pig Trail on the way up.

Kit, I will be heading up to the UnRally from the NTNOA bike show and camp out at Jefferson Texas (North Texas Norton Owners Assocoation) departing Sunday for ES-AR. I have a room booked at the Motel 6 if I can't get a room a else where. (I think I found one a little cheaper.) I can camp out for a couple of days OK...but a week is too much for me. From a Dallas Fort Worth point of view, any hotel will be fine since they will all be under ten or so miles from the Iron Horse Inn according to gps coordinates and distances via mapquest. The short ride to the Iron Horse should be a peice of cake compared to our daily travels in DFW....I hope. I plan to sleep well and ride a few miles to the HQ in the mornings to eat breakfast with the gang, then figure out who and where to go from there. I think any hotel up there will be OK as long as the parking lot is good enough for your bike stand. But I'd get a room ASAP

Unless last minute business considerations dictate otherwise, I plan to leave N. Dallas/Richardson that Monday morning - either before the rush hour traffic or after. My son Jason may be joining me (riding his R1100R) if he can get away from school/work. I'm staying at the Iron Horse and have reservations through Thursday night, but I may need to leave Thursday morning, riding straight back to Dallas.

Lufkin, Texas

I plan riding from Lufkin to the Rally on Monday.

My route will be straight up 59/259 to around Mt. Pleasant, then the Mena, AR path north through Arkansas, perhaps going through Ft. Smith, probably not.

One of my friends rode that route last month. He will give me "best route" info later this week.

My rear brake is dragging. My new brake pads should arrive in ~5 days which should give me a week to get that caliper apart and cleaned up.

I'll be tent camping at the Iron Horse.
