Default European International Sportster/Buell Meet

I have decided to go ahead and start setting up a European Sportster/Buell meet. Everyone is invited, not just people living in Europe.

The event will take place in Oftersheim Germany which is a bit West of Heidelberg at the US Army Rod and Gun Club which is open to the public.

The event will take place 14 - 16 August 2009.

Free camping with toilet and shower facilities. No electricity. Camping is open camping....find a spot and put up your tent. Hotels are available in the surrounding area.

My plan to to have a live band on at least Saturday night.

Events will include a ride-out or Poker Run, Biker Games, etc.... Rifles and pistols are available to rent for $5.00 at the Rod and Gun club, no membership required. Restaurant and bar are available on site.

These plans are only preliminary. I would like to get a count of how many people will attend.

For those coming from out of Europe I can assist is setting up lodging and rental bike of your choice.

Please vote on the poll to let me know if you will attend. This is a public poll, meaning that your XLF username will be visible.

Man, that sounds great...but...Mom's visiting from the states during that time--the same reason I'm missing the Edelweiss rally. If for some reason the date changes, I'll definitely find some time!

Sporty's, rifles and pistols, sounds like a good combo, I've been thinking about another trip to Germany, we shall see.
What type of bikes are available for rental in that area?
I actually wouldn't mind renting a sport-touring bike, as long as I don't get drummed out of the meet.

You can rent just about any model of bike. Renting a European or Japanese Sport Touring bike is probably a lot less expensive then renting a Harley. I'll look into prices.
