Deals Gap 2010 June 28th + 29th
 
Its official the 2010 xlforum deals gap ride is going to be june 28th + 29th....everyone is welcome...bring your buddies even if they dont ride a sportster....myself and a few others will be staying at the iron horse campground...probably going to just pitch a tent....would like if everyone stayed at the same place...would be nice to hang out with all the members...

June 28th will be the main group ride...would like to have everybody who plans on riding to check in the night before so we can head out early trying to get a full days riding in...riding the dragon...blue ridge...cherohala....

June 29th will be pretty much the same...a full days riding...we can all decide what to do and where to go when the time comes....

June 29th is my buddies birthday...and June 30th is my birthday...so a pretty large party will be in order...

I will be checking into the iron horse campground June 26th or 27th...and heading back home July 1st....


Also im sorry for the double post but the first deals gap 2010 thread was kinda confusing...alot of different plans....wanted to make a new thread with a nailed down plan...

mods can we replace the deals gap 2009 sticky with this thread???

Yeah im going from michigan to north carolina.....:banana

actually i plan on meeting you at lunkers...heading east on historic 12...excellent way to start the journey i might add...going right past the hd shop in sturgis michigan where we met sportserdude.248 for the first time..taking that until the front tires get wet...meeting sportsterdude his lady and bob on the east shore..then heading south into ohio...staying the night somewhere in ridinfools area...mid ohio...then heading for NC the next morning....no real plan as far as what roads we are taking right now.....figured we could all work it out once we get a little closer to launch...once everybody is on board for sure we can work things out decide where to meet the other members...

Also there has been some talk of possible ride patches...im thinking

2010 XLForum
{fire breathing dragon logo}
Deals Gap Run

maybe a 3 inch round patch..black..with a typical colored dragon..the the lettering in white...

maybe even some stickers to match...i know a good vinyl shop that makes our buisness cards and does the lettering on our vans...probably get a good deal on a few handfulls of stickers...

i can put you up for a couple days if you want to relax before the dragon run...you have alot of riding planned....the route down to nc will be split up into 2 around 400 mile days..pretty easy compared to the seat time youll be used to.....hoping to arrive in NC mid afternoon..that way we can unpack...relax...maybe sneak in a pre dragon run before the official ride the next morning...:shhhh

The patch and stickers????
 
came up with a basic patch design today.....what you guys think.....like this except a 3 or 3.5 inch circle...do the dragon red...the actual patch black...and the letters white...have the letters go around the dragon...just like the back of a dime...
