I know its a little early, But I would like to see how many of the SE people are going to try to attend FF11. The idea is to meet along the way and ride as group and to provide support for one another. So post up any ideas, comments, and suggestions that you make have. As of right now myself and DecepticonDon are committed. Thanks Charles

I should start one of these for Northwest. I think it said 40hrs of driving, and like 2600miles or something. Gotta get a group together!

My thoughts are to have a group with a support vehicle or two, that way people can rest and ride. I dont know if my back will allow riding the bike the whole way.
Thats the way to get it done.

I like this plan alot. I would offer up my truck(crew cab, short bed, 2wd hemi, works real well) and possibly a trailer. I know for a fact I can fit 3 bikes in the bed, tailgate down, and I hope to have an enclosed trailer by then. If not, maybe I can at least send my trailer or something. Good ideas guys.

Wait a a min. Why if the show starts Fri. would you wait till Fri to leave? We rode to FF09 We have three people ride bikes and one truck. ( My truck in fact. ) Witch I am more the willing to let someone to drive if they like. But we left Wed morning. Sleep in a hotel that night got there thur. Trying to make the trip in one day is crazy. I don't know how long the trip you have planed out? But I know the trip we was on made for a long couple days. And on top that I would not think its a good idea to leave out that same day after the show and then take a long trip home.. I just don't see any of that as a good idea. LONG RIDES LATE IN THE DAY ARE NOT GOOD COMBO'S. So we left Mon. morning and stopped in at a hotel again on the way home. Just mt 2cent's

OK with all that aside. I would love to get some people from around Atlanta to ride up. I know I can fit 2 bike in the bed of my truck with the gate up.
