2018 Forum Rally
Ok when I last checked, north central West Virginia and central Kentucky were running neck and neck in our other poll. Lets choose between those two and those two only. If it is agreeable, I can direct a rally at either of those locations and lead a couple of good rides from either location as I have ridden in both areas multiple times, and can provide good riding routes for those that want to run on their own and not with the pack. Kentucky is closer for me, but I'd have to say IMO W VA really has better roads if you like mountains and curves, but it doesn't matter to me. I can be happy riding at either place.

Maybe first or second week of June? I 'd have to check local activities as either could have festivals going on at that time of year we might want to avoid.

Let's choose one in the next 2 weeks. I will cut off the poll in 14 days and make a decision on dates by the first of the year, and hopefully make an announcement by New Years.

RE: 2018 Rally offer
Thanks, Mickey! Having ridden in both areas myself, I can report that either will be a great location for the rally.

Just checked the map and I ll pass thru the ky site (9 hours and 613 miles) on the way up and it looks like Weston would be another 288 miles and 4.5 hours due east for me so I’ll vote for Ky location when we vote again

In. Don't care where or when I am in. Have not missed a CB1100 rally yet.
Even though I no longer own one.
