I'm a 'possible attendee' for '20, I'd very much enjoy FINALLY meeting some of the members here.

Don't think I'm a possible attendee; but like John said,  it would be great to meet some the Maxi Scoots members, if they are of the same great caliber,(and why-ever would that not be so! ), of the Maxi Scoots members I met this fall. Greg and Peggy, and Bill and Linda visited here; but only for the one day;-( 
We had a blast.  It was the highlight of our summer.

Anyone with a little time - try to work in MO T and 125 and 160 out of Ava MO.  T is an a perfect road both ways.  160 is nice, but a lot of traffic.

I agree with Carolyn, if you don't plan to ride with me on the long Friday ride to Mt Magazine, I would head north and hit Hwt T.  (there is a Lambert's Throwed Rolls near by)

If you want me to work up a route, I will.

Has anyone made reservations at the motel yet and can we get a group discount. I guess being a senior citizen and ex- military. I always ask for about discounts. I believe if you don't ask, you don't get. I don't always get but it costs nothing to ask.

Hi John,  I called the Family Budget Inn a couple of weeks ago.  Talked to the manager.  A bit hard to understand.  Only would give me AARP/AAA discount.  Not sure if I want  to stay there or not.  Talked to Maggie about it and we were going to see about other choices.

Whhhhhhhhaaaaaaaaattttttt!!!!!!!!!!!!  :-)     (then you can help me convince everyone that Black Hills 2021 would be a suitable rally place.)

What convincing?  SD sounds great and it's only about 22 hours for us.  Shorter and quicker than our usual 26 hour straight shot to Naples FL and we'd have a camper to crash in if necessary.  We're in!

New to the forum, found it from a thread on BurgmanUSA.  I'm hoping to be able to make this ride.  I've been looking over the rides and getting really excited.  I've been to a couple of STO's but can't make it this year because of timing.  I love riding this area.  Being from Fort Worth, not a lot of curves.  Arkansas gives me chance to sharpen my riding skills.  Hope to see everyone there.

Our Rally is September 8-13th. It would be great to see you and Barb. Hope the timing works out.  You can always rent a scooter when you get there.

I've not got it finalized, but it looks like I will be bring in up to 12, including myself. Right now, we've got 8 riders lined up. I've made lodging reservations there and for the trip there from Grand Junction, Colorado for 12, as some folks could not commit, yet. We will spend a couple of days getting through the twists and turns, mountain passes and valleys, then beat it on over to arrive Monday afternoon, and head back Friday morning. Are there registration fees, or even a list?

By the way, those four spots over the 8 folks that have committed are open to first come, first serve to anyone with the experience and bike to make the ride first to Grand Junction, then on to the rally. I've got a 2,400 mile loop planned, plus the rally riding. I make the lodging reservations and plan the route. If you want a couple of days of excellent Colorado riding built into your trip, which includes twisty, steep mountain passes with no guard rails and can get to Grand Junction for kickstands up Friday morning, Sept. 4, get with me.

By list, I mean do you need individual names, but your “just show up and ride” response would seem to indicate “no”. So, my group and I will do just that. I’ll look for further details as they’re posted and otherwise will see everyone then. Scooter on!

Nahh not really needed.  If I have numbers I can basically figure out how to do the rides.  See ya soon!

What I will do closer to the rally is ask people for an emergency contact then I make a list I have when we are at the rally.

A few things for new attendees, this is not a formal pay your money and get a t-shirt and swag kind of rally. This is a meeting of like- minded riders who want some fun and challenging rides with interesting sites and good food along the rides. Usually one free day for rest, rides, etc. and scheduled rides the other days. Expect 150 to 200 mile all day rides. We enjoy each other's company and are a pretty mellow bunch. So come and have fun.

We've made the tough call to forego this year's riding and social get-together in Arkansas.  A combination of the:

1) Canada/USA border still closed to non-essential vehicular traffic ... and they're talking about extending this until at least late August;
2) state of COVID19 ... particularly in AR and;
3) fact that we must, by law, self-isolate for another 2 weeks upon returning to Canada makes it logistically impossible for us to participate.

Another key consideration deals with Karin having taken over the care giving responsibilities for her Mom, at least until the COVID19 threat is eliminated.  She is immune compromised and we simply do not want to risk picking up this virus and endangering her and others around us. 

Needless to say, we are unhappy campers and disappointed riders right now.

Thanks John.  Likewise from us.  Our annual trip to ride and hang with y'all has become a must do in our social calendar.  We rode to Lake Huron yesterday for Canada Day and had a beach side picnic lunch (physical distancing of course).  We talked about how much we will miss the 2 get-togethers this September (Maxi-scoots and STO Rallies) ... and what to do with two weeks of vacation that Karin now has to use up before the end of this year. 

The irony ... we have the vacation time ... cheap fuel is plentiful ... desire is high and yet, we're pinned down and not able to venture very far or to socialize with those we'd like to as we choose to.  Big Bummer!

Len, we are the same way.  Pete and I do small things together close by.   Pete drives me to my errands but generally doesn't come inside.   We did get together with Carolyn and Robert to celebrate Carolyn's birthday.  We social distanced in Robert's backyard.  I know Pete was happy to talk to someone besides me :-)

I'm so thankful that Pete and I like each other so much.  I can't imagine being stay at home with someone you don't care for much.  Pete and I have "fought" twice in our relationship and once was during this stay at home period.   Over a puddle of water on the kitchen counter....

Side note our stay put into effect that anytime you are outside of your home, you are to wear a mask.

Yup, I'm also foregoing any travel plans this year and will miss the Rally. Considering I'm into my 5th month of work-from-home and am basically self-isolated, it wouldn't be prudent for me to risk travel at this time, plus as sonuvabug noted above, the border is closed and there is still the 14-day quarantine to consider. So it will be a 2-week Staycation this year and likely a bunch of day rides here in Ontario. Good for the budget, bad for the psyche!

It's starting to look not so good in some parts south of the Border. While I'm not too concerned about our group riding and socializing, for me the concern is the overnight lodgings to get there and back. I've met and seen some real #$&^! people on my travel back home from wintering down south. I'll withhold making a final decision until the beginning of September and see how things are looking then.
