Rogers or Bust

Tomorrow morning [early], I start my 2008 motorcycle trek. I’m pretty much packed and I’ll have “Enterprise” loaded tonight. Plan is to meet Will in Memphis and ride with him to Rogers. I’ll be bringing a Gold-Wing guy with me so I hope that won’t be an issue with our hard-core members : ). On the 25th We’ll be heading NW for Alberta for a few days visit with some acquaintances [and hopefully a visit with my son if he’s not out in the oil fields] then back across Canada with a dip into Minnesota to meet Butch. Oh boy … I’m really getting excited now!! Is it evident ??

See ya at Beaver Lake

Full service manual for the 1300

Here is a web site that has the full service manuals for most V Star models including the 1300, I also downloaded one for my wifes 650 Classic. It look`s like it has engine removal and the hole shot though I don`t think I would like to tackle that. It might come in handy sometime, while your there he also has other thing to look at to. http://www.paulmilner.com/yamaha/handbuch/handbuch.htm

A 1300tourer.com Rally?

As our community continues to grow, I thought it would be cool if we could all get together for a small rally and do some riding together.

I have never planned an event like this, so I may ask a couple of those who are interested in attending to help me with the planning.

In thinking about location, I'd like to keep it somewhat central to the US which should make it within reach for most of us. Right now, I am considering the following destinations:

Colorado Springs, CO : Exploring the Front Range
Estes Park : Rocky Mountain National Park
Rogers, AR : Exploring the Ozarks
Deadwood, SD : Black Hills, Custer State Park, Devils Tower

I'd like to get some feedback on location,... and would love additional suggestions. Once I get a few more suggestions on location from folks that would definitely attend, I'll put up a poll and we can be democratic about it. :)

As for a date, I'd like to shoot for the end of next summer (2008). I have a feeling that our user base will continue to grow, plus that will give us time to organize, find hotels willing to offer discounts, and plan things to do while we are at our location.

I have really enjoyed being a part of this site and being able to share the V Star 1300 experience with everyone here. I consider ourselves to be a close knit community,... and I would love the opportunity for us to meet each other, and of course ooogle over each others bikes. :)

Take care everyone, and I look forward to some feedback!

Will R.
