I am thinking of trailering to Pensacola and meeting in Joplin Mo. I will probably register in the next few. Did you get the packet? What day is Joplin departure?

I have the packet.They pass by Joplin on Sunday afternoon the 13th June.The stop Sunday night is in Miami OK,There is a lunch stop in Conway MOwhich is just before Springfield.I guess I will meet at the lunch stop.St Louis is the night stop prior.
Have you ridden in this Rally in the past?From what I can gather is that many of the riders are repeaters.
If you decide to ride up I would be happy to ride with you.

No, I have not done this ride. Rode a lot in Europe, East Coast and Canada. Last year we rode all the way to Port Angeles in Washington. I am seriously considering this ride from Joplin to Santa Monica, then back. My phone # is 407-893-6476. Give me a call - we can discuss some ideas.

I did this in 2000. I did it on my VFR800. It is supposed to be a ride your own ride type event. But we all started off just following the leader. Sorry forget his name now.

It was pretty good, he stopped at lots of memorable locations. After a couple days we did break up into smaller groups. We did arrange in the morning to know where the ending point for the day was so we all regrouped at the end of the day at a particular motel.

I would do it again.
