of course you can do what I must do, trailer Yes I know a bad bad word on this site. But I really wanted to do the UN at Red Lodge. Loaded up my bike and two other bikes, we shared driving duties. 24 hours out (yes non stop) 7 days of wonderful riding, and 24 hours back. Sure makes good use of vacation time doing it that way. Of course if you are coming alone, then I would not recommend 24 hours of straight driving :-)

In addition in our group we were lucky, I can basically drive all night. Does not bother me and I do not get sleepy. The other riders drove until 11pm and I drove 11pm to 7am. Worked out great for us, and non of us could have attended if we had to ride out and back. Not to mention the huge cost savings.

Plus we all agreed we would never had made it across Missouri and Kansas in the heat we hit. But instead we were sitting in a nice air conditioned truck :-)

Finally one more point, depending on the location, we have tons of nice single track roads here in the east. I will most likely be trailering to this UN as well, as I will bring my street bike and my G450x

Just an option

I don't need the exact venue but until I know what state it's going to be in, I don't know if I'm in or not.

If you had considered this years ago, your 'Stich would actually still be red. Now it is some kind of shade of bug-ridden faded pink. Yes, pink I say.

Yes but bug-ridden, faded pink is the fastest color.....and the most death defying.

Only crazy people would drive from the east coast to that area continuously driving until arrival.

Oh, wait.

That sounds familiar......
