Hi, we've been to the Region H Rally in Marshall a couple of times, once when we had to work security, and once when we just wanted to go back. For a relatively small town, it's a pretty good rally, and a surprising amount of vendors. We live north of Houston ( Texas Ch M-2, in Spring) and plan on going up for the day Saturday, coming home that evening, only about a 400 mile trip for us.
I was planning on hooking up with the Chapter U group out of San Antonio. Says on the web site they will be heading out around 8:30 Saturday. Meeting place is right next to Rudy's and Yamaha of San Antonio on I-35 north bound (http://www.texaschapteru.org/). Good group to ride with. I have been on couple of rides with them.
