Hey everyone, it's time to start thinking about our event. Are any participants going this year? Who is in?
Sorry to hear you are no longer joining the group. We enjoyed your company and are always welcome as Rob said to come by car if you want for diners and just hanging out.Hi Guys. I was thinking about this the other day. I wont be coming. Finally sold my bike. I will always remember the people and the fun and beautiful scenery from ROTR's. I will miss it.
After tearing my rotator cuff for the second time and the threat of losing my job because I was out for so long I was kind of paranoid about having a bike accident due to insane drivers or deer. I did end up hitting a deer this year in my Jeep. $4000 damage for a minor deer strike... So yes I decided to give up riding. I do miss it at times, I cant deny that.
This would be ROTR 21. 21 years of what started out as 2 guys wanting to meet up for a ride back when Riderforums was based on the ZR-7 and had only about 500 members. Craig is the only original ROTR guy left in attendance. Even though there were a few crashes in the earlier years no one was seriously hurt and everyone always had a great time.
Hopefully you guys can get together and continue the tradition.
Those work for me FWIW. I’m not very reliable. I wimped out last year due to neck problems and fears of a gas shortage. I haven’t ridden much since July 2020. I’ll have to take some long rides to figure out if I can manage a road trip.I am good with Maggie Valley. The dates of 5/11 thru 5/15 is the normal weekend we go so this works for me and might allow Jon to come down for the weekend. How do these dates work for everyone else?
