I'm odd man out when it comes to some of the epic rides that a lot of riders describe. OTOH, it's all about the camaraderie. And yes whoever is setting this up should be able to choose the time and place. I can't wait to retire and be able to make my own schedule. I'm willing to bet wherever the rally is held it will be a blast.Sturgis would most likely work very well for me, it’s only a 800 mile ride to get there and I would love to attend a Tenere Rally . But I’m not the one doing the big work to set it up, so whatever area gets chosen i hope it all works out great for everyone !
