HARLEY SHOP TALK _ Harley Shop Talk Rides & Events _ 2017 HST Gathering

Posted by: Night Rider Jan 3 2017, 10:58 AM

So 2017 ...

When and where would peeps like to gather?

I still cannot believe that I had to miss 2016 great even Sarah and Clay hosted ... TOTAL BUMMER...

But, with vacation request etc and budgets and spreadsheets to be created ...




When and where??

Volunteers? Else we could always just pick a spot and internet research ...





Posted by: Sick_Puppy Jan 3 2017, 02:10 PM

Maggie Valley North Carolina?

Posted by: MNHOG Jan 3 2017, 09:26 PM

I believe plans have been made. I remember Montana or ???? That one damn safety meeting. blink.gif
Someone will chime in.

Posted by: LoudnProud Jan 4 2017, 09:58 AM

Just thoughts and suggestions at this point but nothing set in stone....

However, 2018 is all set for the 115th.... thumbsup.gif thumbsup.gif thumbsup.gif


Posted by: Adli Jan 5 2017, 11:03 AM

If everyone is on board, I'm hosting 2018 to coincide with the 115th. I've got a spot all dialed in with great riding opportunities starting at the end of the driveway (I guess that's where ALL rides start). Within minutes of the Fox and Hounds restaurant we all had lunch at in 13'. I heard Colorado has a bunch of safe riding available doobie.gif

I'm confident we can stay safe where ever we go.

We're okay with this.

We're also okay with hosting the weekend of the Peoria TTs which are on Sunday Aug 13th.

I know you and Bruce weren't there for the rally; but considering how Bruce's health and mobility were looking at the time of our rally, we all agreed that 2017 should be done at HST central HQ and the TT was an attractive sideshow for the event. We were under the impression you'd happily host next.

Posted by: SeaHag Jan 11 2017, 04:34 AM

PS: Since Sara and I are taking a family trip to Iceland in April, we won't have the vacation or bankroll for an extended rally outing...So if the plan is anything further from home, we likely won't make it.

Posted by: Sick_Puppy Jan 18 2017, 12:17 PM

Is there a race there that weekend? I could enter my ride in the antique contest.

Or the "Most Miles on a Bike" contest...

So can we call this official now? In a couple weeks, I'll be able to put in for that vacation period and so will Sara....6 months lead time on vacation requests.

Dot and I are in a similar scenario. We already have requested off the week after Peoria for Larryfest and have already bought tickets($120 each). While we'll try to make it for a day or maybe overnight, We won't know until the time comes. Since Larryfest sells out by February, we had to get tickets early before we heard the exact dates of the HST rally. We'll keep our fingers crossed......... banghead.gif

Posted by: LoudnProud Jan 19 2017, 02:41 PM

Hope things work out for ya'll, Buck....

It was great to see ya'll this past year....

The dates on the site for the Grand Nationals say Aug. 12-13 2016...

Would it be the 11th-12th 2017 Fri-Sat or do they actually have them on Sunday too????


Posted by: Fgowi Jan 19 2017, 04:28 PM

Of course I could always say fuck it but that's how I've managed to drag it out this far.... hysterical.gif

How about Tuesday night in New Orleans. Wednesday morning head north on the Great River Road, Wednesday night wherever. Thursday morning keep heading north, take a right at HST Central HQ. Roll in Friday morning, or Thursday night, if our early arrival wouldn't be a problem. Just spit balling at this point.

Posted by: Fgowi Feb 2 2017, 07:58 PM

Thurs. arrival is not a problem.

Thanks Bruce. At this point everything is speculation, but if we do roll in Thursday, you know you and T can count on us to help out (emptying the cooler 😎). I'll jump out and go ahead and claim a spot with the "shed peeps"💤

Me too, the early birds can help mow the massive grounds!

Posted by: T14B Feb 9 2017, 06:20 PM

Out of the kindness of my heart, I'm going to recommend against offering to mow.

When we were dating Bruce had spinal surgery. I got off work earlier than he did so I shot over to his place to mow for him, (like the sweetheart I am). When I finished he politely said, "thank you for mowing but please don't ever do it again". ohmy.gif

You see I'm a farmer and I mow in perfect straight lines. He says to me, "Why would you mow in straight lines? Look around you in nature. Do you see any straight lines? What would possess you to mow in a straight line?"

So if you've ever walked down the 75ft long path to our house and wondered why it zig zags, now you know.

Straight lines when mowing, I love it. there is someone more OCD than me! When I mowed, I would go North to South this week, and East to West the next. Damn right, the lines were straight and the squares were identical ;)

Posted by: Jarhead Mar 6 2017, 08:48 AM

I too would have been fired, straight tight military lines. Bruce is right though on scout missions the first thing we scanned for was anything overstraight or right angled that would immediately signal man made.

Jarhead ... should I plan on swinging through Port A on the way to gathering??

Mike I can't take off that time of year, I wish I could but summer is our peak time with work. That said if you want to make the ride down I would love to see you, provide you with a clean bed cold beer and a steak dinner.

Posted by: LoudnProud Mar 10 2017, 09:36 AM

Greg,

We thought about going down there my birthday weekend but ended up staying home which worked out since the weather was shitty.... Maybe later this year we'll head South....

Rick,

If we make it happen (Mike is being Optomistic) I'll keep you in the loop....

I'll ride East and pick up, uh, let's see... Ordy, Deuse04, Sweetback, Wholehog, Mialma, Eddie, Mikey, et al!!!! Wanna tag along, Tom!! whistling.gif hysterical.gif

My brother is riding out from LA with a couple friends to attend, so I might ride west to meet them on the way to my house. We will ride to Davenport, IA on Wed or Thur. Meet up with Bruce and ? somewhere on Friday - Bruce knows and will figure out a meeting point (Psycho Silo Saloon?).

Posted by: Fgowi May 25 2017, 04:39 PM

Yup!!!! Figuring on a ride up to the Psycho Silo that day. FRIDAY. I'll get everyone lost on the way! Prolly same route you (Spurrs), Ernie, and I took.

I think the six-pack will roll down from Minnesota along the Mississippi then cut east after taking Deb, Kurt, Mike and Trina to Poopy's in Savanah for the first time. I think we'll be down Thursday evening.

Are there enough air mattresses to bunk everyone at HQ Bruce?

Not at this time. And several have leaks I can't locate. We might have to employ tents this year too. Sounds like it's growing. Unfortunately I've been too busy to even start the spreadsheet.

We have two air mattresses and a big cabin tent we could ship down and back I'm sure.

Posted by: Fgowi May 30 2017, 07:15 PM

I'm sure that tent will be used/needed. Yeah. Air matresses have been used / loadned out a lot!! Lots of leaks at this point. Not good waking up on two thicknesses of rubber!!

I'm still waiting for confirmation for Thursday vacation day, but I have Friday and Monday locked in. If I can get Thursday, I'll probably spend Wednesday night somewhere around the quad cities or possibly someplace a little further north. If that's the case, I'll hook up with the Spurs crew. If I head out Thursday, I'll make some calls and figure out where to head. I'll be out of work by 1:30 so I'll be on the road by 1:34. Can't wait to see everyone!!

You should look up how far it is from you to Hasting's MN....If it's closer than the quad cities, you can shack up with us Wednesday and take off Thursday with the six-pack headed south. We expect to make an all day tour of things getting down to Bruce's Thursday evening.

Posted by: Adli Jun 20 2017, 08:43 AM

So Thursday is a lock. I appreciate the invite Seahag, and will more than likely take you up on the offer. But, I still need to firm a few things up, before I commit. From me to you is right around 370 miles, so making it there Wednesday night is a breeze, depending on when I can get out of work. Worse case, I grab a motel near the river and meet you guys Thursday before you roll out of Mankato.

Sounds like fun.... Kurt, Deb, Trina and Mike have never been to Poopy's in Savannah; so I'm looking forward to rolling down the river on the way to Bruce's with a few cool stops.

Posted by: Adli Jun 22 2017, 05:35 PM

I'll push for your place Wednesday night, and see how it goes. We'll definitely talk in the days (weeks) leading up to the date. I'm down with riding with that crew again!! As they say, miles of smiles 😎👍

My crew is of 4 looks like 99.9 probability. Randy, Ken and Bob are riding to my house from CA & AZ, then we'll head to Davenport, IA for Wed & Thu nights. Onto the Psycho Silo Saloon in Langley, IL for meeting FGOWI group and on to their casa on Fri.

We all planning on the races for what day?




Posted by: Fgowi Jun 30 2017, 07:28 PM

The races are on Sunday. Heat races start at 2 p.m.

A little worried about attendance. But, hey, I''ve not been in years. So, whatever!

I would like to know who all is IN for the races. Obviously, all welcome to stay over to Monday.

Posted by: Sick_Puppy Jun 30 2017, 10:17 PM

I'm in for the races, Jim also.

A friend is a life member of Peoria Motorcycle Club. He and his wife will be working the event. Don't know about anything special for us but I bet we'll have a place to park!! Then again, maybe not!! whistling.gif hysterical.gif

I think my bunch: Rick, Randy, Bob & Ken are in for the races. I'll firm up, but that's the plan. Pull out of the FGOWI camp for KC on Monday AM.

Posted by: SeaHag Jul 3 2017, 02:14 AM

I believe our Minnesota group are all in for the racing as well. We intend to stay Sunday night and leave Monday morning for home. Was contacted by Ted [MNHog] and it sounds like he will be joining our 6-pack + Gary for the ride down on Thursday.

Bruce and Tee:

I'm out.

Was trying to coordinate a way to fly out and rent a car but wifey put the kibosh on that. Sucks. Bruce haven't seen you since Ty's wake and it would have been great to finally meet Tee. Some other time I guess. We'll be in Pittsburgh, moving our daughter and her roommate into her apartment for the next year.

Hope you guys and gals have great weather and a great time with great friends. These things always turn out nice.

Can someone do us a favor and print and frame an 8x10 of Ty and Joey and put it up in a conspicuous spot? They'll always be a presence at these things. Miss Ty....

Since we won't be able to make it out to your place this year either....

If it's OK with ya'll I can take care of Ordy's request and have something at your doorstep before the rally...

How's sleeping arrangements looking? I know in our group Trina, who has fibromyalgia would appreciate a real bed; while Sara and I will be comfortable anywhere with air conditioning. Do we need to box up and mail some air mattresses down?


Posted by: T14B Jul 18 2017, 07:48 PM

Right now we have your crew of 6 upstairs, where there is one real bed Trina can have. It's a fairly firm mattress.

I haven't had time to pull out my stash and verify they're still holding air yet. But I know I have (2) with leaks I can't locate. We just bought 2 new ones last weekend. (We arrived at the cabin we rented with my sister only to find two of the beds had only box springs and no mattresses!!!)

Assuming my unchecked inventory is good, I'm short 5 mattresses (and sheets).

I don't really want to have to spring for 5 more mattresses, but I can get the same mattresses I bought at Walmart a 2-pack of queens for $24. (They're the old fashion low ones, not the super high ones.) I don't know if you could ship mattresses down and back for $12 ea.





Our goal is everyone is in air conditioning.

We're looking to convert the garage to "Shed 2.0"

Posted by: Fgowi Jul 19 2017, 08:04 AM

Hate that you might need to do that Rick!! Appreciate it! Don't pack yet!! whistling.gif hysterical.gif We'll see. Yeah, no idea how much to ship 'em two ways.

We've been putting new decking on the back of the house. Absolutely necessary!! Plus, she's working on "The Wedding Cake" project at work. It's the structure that holds antenae on top of Sears Tower in Chicago. Namely WLS! The last one fell apart and they (WLS) hired the same sorry engineer to design the replacement!! She's working with an incompetent drafting department and a demanding sales person. SHE is trying to produce a quality, long lasting, product for 'em and make some money for Rohn. With little help.

I believe she's about ready (maybre today) to "route" it! That means turn it over to production, which she also planned in great detail, down to every damn weld! Amazing!

I'm "on the deck" this moring. Made a cut last night an inch too long (better than too short). BUT I THREW THAT SON OF A BITCH DOWN AND QUIT!! Backl at it this moring. Hopefully beat the heat. Upper 90s here 'til Saturday! Index over a "C" note!!

Edit: So, I gotta pay for Photobucket?! Can't see any of the attachments. Ain't goona pay either. Not usre about the "pay" part but heard it over on a gun forum. Same "logo" replavcing the pics. Anyone know what's up?

Capitalism Bruce... They tell you, hey come on over water's great and then they hit you with the fee once you're balls deep in the pool. They noticed that the majority of users post up mostly pictures that they are going to post on websites likes our's so there's a big opportunity for some profit in this and they started charging. All those pics that we posted to this site and other's, from Photobucket, no longer show up unless you pay the fee. Guess I'll have to start using my private photo server at home and screw Photobucket!

Last word we had from Sandra, about a week ago, she still hasn't found affordable air fare for this trip. She said she will continue watching for a deal until the last minute; but at this time, it's too much out of pocket for a four day trip. sad.gif We've got our fingers crossed for a break.

Not in the cards.

Hopefully this is the last time I help her move in to anywhere. Knowing me I'll probably end up missing moving her all over creation. As we speak she is in England right now, with her Brit boyfriend, visiting Stone Henge; kids got the life.

Shooting for western Ohio (Springfield/Dayton area) which will leave a easy Thur 300 mile run. Later if I run into any rain.

Montana Jim says he is leaving Wed evening for a short run to Sheridan Wyoming (to avoid the Sturgis crowd) and should arrive Fri eve. Around 1,300 for him and 750 for me.

Actually, there should be "Bridge Out" signs posted. Very sorry! Just simply have not budgeted the time to get a skid steer out here and fix the damn road!!

So, end of a long day when you arrive keep this in the back of your mind. Anyone can handle this but, jus' sayin'.

Whats the Android version of Friend Finder that we were all using? I have a Life360 program on my phone that I think does the same thing but doesn't sound familiar. Figured we'd turn the App on so Bruce & company can estimate our arrival.

It's about a 400 mile day for us. Quite long for Deb; who has several fused vertebrae in her back. So extra stops may be added beyond fuel. We have hope she'll be comfortable for the long haul as Kurt picked up an aftermarket tour pak with wrap around backrest. And additionally, old Blackduece happened to be hanging onto his old Air-Hawk saddle pad; which he located and shipped on short notice after I sent him a Facebook message. It arrived this afternoon. thumbsup.gif

Seahag, et al, for Android, in the Google Maps app, go to the menu, and click "share location". From there, you can share you location with specific people in your contact list.
For you to see "them" they would have to share their location with you.
SL and I use it and it works pretty good.

A long day of riding is pretty rough but especially with her back issues....

I'm sure she'll be fine... Allow time for more frequent stops and that'll keep her comfortable....

Looks like it was fun! Can someone do this old fart a favor. Recognized lots of you, didn't know some. Can somebody label the faces in a group picture??

Bruce leading the pack in on Friday with Nightrider and Clay following.

Rick's brother Randy (recently retired) enjoying life.

 

Posted by: Sick_Puppy Aug 15 2017, 03:04 PM

Some times it's hard to put names on the faces even when you are there. This is Gary (I think).

Rolled in today @3pm after a 6am roll out from Springfield Ohio. Not one raindrop the whole trip.

 

Posted by: Sick_Puppy Aug 15 2017, 03:08 PM

Friday evenings line up with more to arrive.

 

Posted by: LoudnProud Aug 15 2017, 03:31 PM

Cool, Thanks for posting some pics Tom.... thumbsup.gif

Not all of us have a FB account so I'm glad to see some pics posted here....

Glad to hear Randy is enjoying La Vida Loca....

Posted by: Sick_Puppy Aug 15 2017, 04:36 PM

Don't mean to hijack the thread but look what showed up in the cam (about 100' from the house). Looks like a 200-250 lb. Anyone want to go bear hunting?

 

Posted by: Blackcloud Aug 15 2017, 05:10 PM

Cool pics. That aerial shot looks great. Lots of participants.

Posted by: Sick_Puppy Aug 15 2017, 05:54 PM

Just talked with Jim and he made it home ok. Said he made 400 miles Sunday until he hit a 3 inch rain west of Albert Lea. Then made 600 on Monday with a easy 300 in today.

Throwing in another bear picture.

Wow! Glad Jim's in safe! Long haul. Not as long as those Cali guys. Sheeesh!!!

Didn't get a chance to say bye to Sean. Was great to see you! Best to the family.

Staggered in the 2nd downstairs bedroom yesterday. $$$$ is all I got to say. Not necessary at all but big THANKS!!! Don't know what else to say!

Still tired. Or, is it "afterglow" !!! hysterical.gif No homo!!! hysterical.gif

Thanks "T"

Posted by: Sick_Puppy Aug 16 2017, 07:57 PM

Bruce and T - Tnx again for a great weekend. From the pizza at the Pizza Peel in Lacon to the races in Peoria, it was most excellent.

Zip will be remembered for his Sunday 10pm "we going to eat this evening?" statement. That was good for another half hour of jokes.

I guess the drone inspired Gary to launch the 4' piece of cardboard homebound on the Peoria freeway from the races. I was in the perfect spot 20' behind and off to the right when he launched it @70. It was 8' up in the air when I passed it and apparently hit no one behind. Doubt if there is any pictures of this, ya had to be there.

It was great to see everyone and the U.S. again Bruce and Caroline for hosting. Glad everyone made it home safe.

Kids went back to school today and we head out in the morning to take Emma to start college
