Maybe it's time for me to hit an ADV rally.

Less than 800 miles, I can be there yesterday.

That will be too early. Rally isn't until later on in 2013. Just sayin'.

Or I could drag a trailer with the tiger.

What do you suggest?

Byob

You guys need to read the first post of the byob thread in annual rallies..
http://advrider.com/forums/showpost....98&postcount=1
Location for byob itself is as yet un-named, though it sounds like it may be Oak Hill, WV..
However, I wouldn't discourage you from heading down to asheville the wknd before. Sounds like there will be a bunch of propeller heads there.

Heck, that's 100 miles closer! Even better.

While spending a week in the area sounds like a blast, it was difficult enough to convince the missus to let me go with Roy. I never mentioned there'd be other hoodlums attending.

I'll likely only be going down for the main weekend thing, not the whole week. I just don't have the vacay to do the whole week.

Too many other fun times to try and work in the whole year.

I agree with Stuart.
Hey, that didn't hurt as much as I expected.

WV, NC, from where we are coming from, it won't matter........... much.

When you said you were bringing a trailer, I thought you got a new Beemer at first.

No, I want to make it down there without some obscure part blowing up.

Grainbelt, she's met you. That won't work

Turns out I can't go, I'll be washing my hair that weekend.
I am fairly certain Grainbelt won't be though.

If my shitty old 1984 Beemer can make it at least 3000 miles without blowing up last year, I certainly can see the 2008(?) Triumph can do 658 to 758 miles without an issue.
You should buy a Super Tenere, I hear they are perfect in every way, always.
