    Role call for who's coming and when?
    I'm leaving NE Ohio Monday to ride US 250 down to Afton, VA. Riding the BRP Tuesday and Wednesday with some diversions to ride The Back of the Dragon, etc... In order to arrive in JC Wednesday evening.
    Looking forward to some wind therapy after being "essential" these last 5 months.
    Hope to catch up with old friends and make new ones. Ride safe.

    The reality is at least in these trying times not many Victory ridership Anymore.

    I am even started to feel the pinch on OEM parts. I have noticed many of them selling on E-Bay. Polaris getting rid of stuff.
    I am in the process of buying essential parts.

    The last few days been riding more , I get asked about my Vision. Never heard of it.
    OH it's the company that makes fake Indians? Crack me up.

    I wish I could have gotten off... I AM going to the Vision Gathering in AK. Be safe and have a great time, lots of good roads out that way. Back of the Dragon should be fun too, I just road it for the first and second time earlier this year. It's actually closer to me than the Dragon despite being in a different state, but somehow I have only hit it twice while I've ridden the Dragon nearly 30 times!

    Some VOG member, in his signature, includes a short conversation:

    Him: What brand of bike is that?
    Me: Victory
    Him: Who makes them?
    Me: No one.

    Unofficial bike count in the hotel parking lot was 169! Vendors are set up and doing there thing. Lots of fantastic roads and great weather. Best of all are the Victory riders!! If you are on the fence, go ahead and come on down.

    Doing Myrtle beach rally this year. 1st time for me. Hopefully it’s a good turn out. Looking forward to getting back in the norm hopefully without political conflict or protests.

    Yuck - more flat country and beaches! You should do the Vision Rally in AR (yes I realize you don't have a Vision, but I'm sure there's plenty of other Vics and the area has great roads) or something in the mountains where good roads are king! Someday I'm going to go to Myrtle and check it out... but I really only enjoy rallies to meet other riders and go ride all day, maybe dinner and drink before bed.

    I doubt you fall into the category, but I don't get the idea of attending a rally and not actually riding. I know a lot of guys that go to Myrtle and they ride up and down the beach a bit, but don't really ride anyplace. They'll spend 2-3 hrs a day sitting in traffic around town on the bike to hit a couple bars, then go drink more at the hotel or on the beach. Just doesn't make any sense to me... sounds more like a punishment sitting in traffic at the beach!
