Well, I’d be lined up for a Tiger 660, if they came with electronic cruise control. I’ve ridden most of Triumph’s lineup and I thoroughly enjoyed the Trident. I just need a more accommodating cockpit and passenger perch than that bike offers. 

I think that's the only complaint I've seen about the bike so far. I'm sure that, based on all of those reviews, someone is working on a unit for the bike right this minute. I personally never ride where I would use it. I prefer a throttle lock for quick use of two hands and that's about it.

Alright, you bastages....you talked me into it.

Good for you Timmy; now I'm even more disappointed I can't make this great party.

Is there any rough plan for routes/meals/etc? (I have some restrictions.) Weather permitting, I'll be there for some of the days and bringing a friend (on another Honda). Hotel is booked!

We all break up into small groups and walk or ride to meals. There is no plan other than we all show up for these days. As for the rides, if you talk to a few folks you will get an idea of a group to hang with. Most of the folks who've been coming know who's who and will be happy to offer advise.  The goal is for everybody to have fun. Pretty easy when we all are on motorcycles.

And to get back to the hotel unscathed each day!  😉 

 

I haven't attended the spring ride for several years.  But if I remember correctly, just talking with various folks the night before will give you an idea who's going where, what roads they want to hit, about how many miles they're planning to ride (or number of hours out that day), and - most importantly - what kind of pace they're planning to run.  The groups tend to form around those parameters.  I think most groups back then were 4-6 people, maybe a few more with the more leisurely pace group.

 

Someone please correct me if I'm wrong.  Like I said, it's been a while since I did this ride.

Another vote for safe riding for all.

 

And I'd like to add a request for lots of pictured of the festivities and frivolities so I can enjoy your great times vicariously. :wheel:

I'll likely run a little boring GoPro, which I am still unable to get YouTube to publish as I send it. lol

 

Planning to arrive on the 19th before lunch and head home Saturday in the afternoon of the 21st to swap bikes on the trailer for track day.

I'll be in mid afternoon on Wednesday. I know that there will be a few people already there by then. I ended up adventure riding on my 660 today so now I have to clean it and the truck and trailer tomorrow.

I’m bringing my No-Mar setup, just in case someone has tire issues. Plus, 3 bikes. 😬
