Join us for the Gathering and for those that have wanted to check out Rolling Thunder, we will offer TWO rides on Sunday the 27th, one to the Virginia Mountains and one to Rolling Thunder 2012.

The “Escort” and “WELCOME” are something you are not going to want to Miss this year. Saturday Night we have an option for a group dinner to a Local Fredericksburg Restaurant, Then back to the House Saturday for Drinks, Games, Tech Sessions, More Door Prizes.

    ECG is Friday May 25th - Sunday the 27th.

    Monday is a holiday ..

    Fort Lauderdale to Fredericksburg is 989 miles .. I'll just round it up to 1,000

    Who's going?

    Riding? Auto-Train?

    When are you leaving?

    Auto Train will put you about 40 miles north of Fredericksburg, Va. It is a straight shot down I95 or RT. 1 South to BullDog's Place

    I expect to ride ( like last year ) all the way.

    Why are going on the auto train? I know it's easier but even thinking that the meeting is great, the trip is very good!

    Think about!

    PS: I wan't ( my wife also) to attend, but will all depends on the weather. Last year was very easy to get a room, in fact I booked mine just a few hours before leaving home.

    I'm gonna head up a few days before to spend time with some family and didn't want to ride 1100 miles solo. That can get pretty damn boring pretty quick and adds another 24 hours to the trip if not more.

    Last year I left about 3:00 PM and stoped in Georgia for the night ( started rainning heavy. Next day left around 9:00 AM on my way up and got there( on the hotel) close to 6:00 PM . Was a nice ride and the only regret is that I should have left in the morning, so, I would split the mileage on 2 days. Bulddog ( and his family) are GREAT and the people I met were as good as them. Very nice place and I only missed the ride on the Sunday and that's what I missed. This year ( if I can make it) I will stay for the Sunday's ride. The only "if" is that I will check the weather during the week and if is ok I will be heading up on thursday morning. Don't know yet if this time I will be on the autotrain , if so, it will be for one way only. Who is going?

    I'm also thinking about Monday ( specially if the wife rides w/us).
    Last year I did a wider nturn and stoped in N.C.. Don't know about this year .

    By the way: Riding up North and Down South or Autotrain ( one leg only).

    I'm doing another ride in July to West VA for 2 days .. and originally planned on leaving the Bike in VA for a month @ my relative's house.. then flying home after ECG. I booked a fairly cheap plane ticket ($80) back to FL .. but I may toss that & ride back home with you guys.

    I guess we can discuss when we meet up @ ECG.

    looking for someone with a room to crash with. will split the room ($$) of course.

    Rolling in Friday and heading out Sunday. Shoot me a PM of you have room.

    Thanks, Brian


    Hey guys, I'm looking at riding up either thursday and stopping off at Newburn, NC to visit my Father for the night or leaving early Friday and making a long day of it. Going to roll out Sunday, stop at my fathers for sure then ride home on Monday. If any of you other guys want to hookup and ride home on Monday we can do that.

    Anyone coming up from the south you can crash here and we can roll put from here. I would need to check with the wife on that, if it means riding with someone I doubt she would have a issue. She gets nervious when Im on the road by myself.

    Well, it's this week!!!

    Anybody going north? I guess is more then time to make arrangements.

    DaytonaVTX: Last year there were many rooms available ( I booked my room just before going to the garage to leave), so, I would say maybe If someone from S.FL is going up North we can split the room ( my wife can't go. )
