so anyone in Fl. please start sending me any ideas and info so we can have a good year getting together with other members and friends of the sidecar riders.
I can be reached at sidehack52@yahoo.com looking forward to a good riding season.
my first goal is to have Florida's first annual Rally in June of 2018...More news on the Rally to the Rally as we build a good membership of active riders.

Hi Rich:

Glad you raised your hand. I am new to sidecars, about 6 months. I attended N.C. rally

and the National in Corning. That is about the extent of my knowledge. I am from

the Sarasota-Bradenton area. Have not met any local sidecarist.

I can help out when the need arises.

In similar manner I got to several voluntary jobs myself too.
It is much better to rise your hand in what you like to do then in political associations...I am cured to do so in those.
Here in our country I am the only member and will I need to form a council?
Richard go on for the good of all.
Now you have reasons and excuses enough to hang out frequently.
Enjoy

Good luck.
Sven

Hi Rich,

Welcome to the World of USCA. I was the State rep for a number of years. And did a rally, Y'll Come Rally, 6 or 7 years. If I can be of help let me know.

what I am doing in JUNE is to have a RALLY that just goes to the NATINAL RALLY.....why I am calling it (THE RALLY TO THE RALLY) it is just a way to get more FLORIDA riders to go to the rally ...and so help build a better membership in FL.

RICH

PS Daytona bike week is in FEB or MARCH every year .....come on down ....hopeing to have something for that with a croup of NSCA turn out from FL.

Before the South Dakota rally we did a similar thing but we had a nice place to visit on the way...Yellowstone Park. We encouraged folks to join and/or drop out along the way. I believe the key is to set VERY reasonable daily targets and simply announce the destination for each night ahead of time. Good luck, rolling rallies are the best!

Re Al's suggestion: I can't tell where in FL you would start from, but it would be easy to set a route that avoids Atlanta and goes through the North GA mountains [great roads] and incorporates the Moonshiner 128, the Tail of the Dragon, and the Cherahola Skyway. The campground/resort used for Sidecars in the Smokies - the IronHorse in Robbinsville NC - would be a great stopover. Robbinsville is about 350 miles [via The Dragon] from Rising Sun.

Speaking of which - you might want to check out Sidecars in the Smokies when it gets announced [I hope] for the spring of 2018.

Glad you are aboard.

As we are planning to go to both, Sidecars in the Smokies and the national rally I am keeping an eye on your plans as we would like to join your Fla group on the ride up.
have you put together any potential time frame or travel routes yet.
We participated in the ride to Yellow Stone before the rally in South Dakota that Al spoke of, I can tell you we had a blast and met a lot of great people.

Welcome to the world of trying to be a state rep. It can be a lot of fun but very time consuming. I tried it two years in a row and decided I needed a rest. Be careful of burnout.
