LOST seems to be lost...

Living in the state of ILL, I checked the LOST thread, there doesn't seem to be any evidence of life. That said, and the invite extended therein, has me considering making the 2020 Colorado Rally. Beautiful country, and if I ever get my final drive swapped out, I can sustain highway speeds without cringing at the sound of my engine.
I don't post much, but have been a member for a while, so I've read a few posts here and there. Anyway, the more I look at my XS11LH, the more I love her, and I'd really like the chance to meet up with some of you good folks and enjoy some nice rides on her. Looks like the event might wind up on my bucket list here shortly. You only live once, you know. Keep the info coming as you can, and as the time gets closer my plans can become firmer.

Post this in the LOST thread. Maybe someone will get off their posterior and do something. I've been to several in Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Michigan.

Contemplating where to hold the rally next summer. There will be a Colorado rally, would like to aim for the first full weekend after the 4th of July weekend. That would mean guys could start arriving Thursday evening on the 9th, and everyone usually arrives by Friday which would be the 10th. Put together some type of ride on Friday for the guys that are there. Then main rides on the 11th and 12th.

Hope that helps you guys start planning, there you go!

There has been good input from valued friends about trying to do something in conjunction with the start of Sturgis and heading that direction. I just am not able to pull that off so I need to let guys know that isn't in the plans.

yep, having some sort of a Hop On - Hop Off Rolling Rally (like we have done for the February Florida / Key West trip) from say Cortez to Sturgis be good trip but it would certainly cannibalize some attendees from the July CO Rally. Sturgis dates look to be August 7th to 16th so Rolling Rally To-From Sturgis would be something like Aug 5th - 12th to make it fun and worthwhile.

July 9-13 looks ok for me if I can make it. Penciled it into my calendar. In VA up till 4th so would have to high step it as able 6-7-8th (to deal with those severe T-storms and tornados) to get there Thurs early afternoon.
