NE LT meet and greet at the MOA National

I am proposing that this group, and anyone else who wants to attend, meet at Frank's BMW (N44 30.690 W73 03.687) on Saturday at 1:00 PM. Frank's is on Rt 15, 2 or 3 miles East of the rally site. From there, I would be willing to lead a short covered bridge tour (9 bridges, <85 miles), and we'd be back to Frank's about 3:30.

Any interest?

Past rides:
'03 R1150RT - MAXed out
'03 K1200LTC - Gone to the Darko side

'71 Honda SL350 - The original dual-sport
'72 Kawasaki 250 triple - The smoking gun
'67 Montgomery Wards 125 - Thrashed to death

If you are heading in from CT and you want some company on the way up you can join us. My friend is leaving from CT around 3pm or a bit earlier and I am meeting him up in 87.

If interested, please let me know.

OK, it looks like things are shaping up! I've attached the Garmin route file and a text copy of the directions so that we can ride without worrying about someone being lost!

Just booked Marriott in Williston, VT for 2 nights using my Marriott points. Williston is about 5 miles from the MOA. WoohOO.

Looks like we will have a fair number of people by Saturday! Awesome!

I will be off line starting Monday night so I will not be posting between then and Saturday. Just look for the Impalla brown LT with CT plates at Frank's as that will be me.

I am sure going to try and make the Sat meet. Still looking for a place to stay trying to avoid camping if possible. Looks like I may not be going up until Friday now, My son may have to wait until Thur before he heads north from VA.

Sounds like a deal. Is it OK if a couple of non-BMW friends come along? We're going up Friday via the Taconic State Parkway to 22 to 22A to 17. Staying in Waitsfield with friends then going to Essex on Saturday morning.

I hope to be there too

I'm coming up on either Thursday night or early Friday morning from Central MA. Would be nice to meet fellow members. Plan on camping with the Yankee Beemers. Will try to me at Fred's/Frank's at 1pm..

I'd like to link up with some LT'ers!

I plan to head up Thursday from VA. Night stop in NJ. 300+ mile haul on Friday to Burlington area. Too old to camp outdoors anymore so I'm staying at the Doubletree.

Like to meet up with you all at 1PM at Frank's.

Anyone heading up to Canada after the rally? I'm trying for Montreal.

Does everyone have or use a FRS radio? If so what channel would we call the Rally channel?
