Fellow VA riders,
Planning on attending the National Rally this year Vermont. I will most likely make it a ride through PA, NY and through the Adirondacks to get there over a two day period. Hoping others might want to ride together going the long way on secondary roads.

I'll stay in the loop, I was also considering seeing if we could put a state gathering together this year. I was thinking Kings Dominion since its easily reached or someplace on the BRP (blue ridge Parkway) for September? The BRP itself is a road that just makes riding a sidecar fun.

Thanks Hank (Redsoxcah), for posting about the Saint Patty's Day Parade in Roanoke. Its something some of us Roanoke area sidecarists have been participating in for a few years. We enter the parade as "The Copper Hill Sidecar Club", which is a loosely organized group that got its name from a little community in Floyd County where I live, and a Ural rider lives.
As Hank Redsox posted, the parade this year is on Saturday, March 13. We would gather that morning, maybe for breakfast around 9am, to be at the lineup by 10 or a little after. Parade starts at noon, I believe. I'll check the official flyer to see for sure. I will be sending in the application for a spot soon, and need an approximate number of sidecars. I'll post more info here soon.
I can be contacted by phone or email

Last years weather was really bad, cold and wet. Our parade unit cancelled, but the parade did go on, but there was not as big a festival. The year before we had 5 sidecars. We dress up as green as we can. Here is a link to the parade web site:

Hi Hog,

I didn't mean to ignore your post - I just haven't been checking the sidecar site much & I guess that I missed it!

Wow! How will you ever find time to ride all of those rigs?

I thought we might go to Daytona for Bikeweek, but we decided that the weather wasn't good enough to justify the expense. I guess we'll get the bikes out eventually! We usually ride over to Monterey for one of the two weekends of the Maple Festival. If we do that this year, it will probably be our first ride.

Hey, Herwing.. I don't go to this site as often as I used to either. I took the HD with the new Hannigan on it out today for the first time. Haven't rode the HD since I got the wings. Right now both wings are in pieces in my garage switching everthing that can be switched from the 88 to the 96. SLOOOW going so I will be riding the HD to MB for bike week. First time to drive the HD down, other years It was a trailer queen. Are u or anyone going to the Metrolina Bike swap meet in Charlotte NC the last Sat/Sun of this month. Largest bike flea market I have ever seen. Get great buys every year. Maybe this is the year we meet on the road somewhere!?

Hi Hog,

We don't have plans for much of anything, so far! Can't imagine that we'll go to Myrtle for Bike Week. We have tentative plans to attend the Spring Fling in Pigeon Forge, TN in April, but that's about it. My hubby's Wing is in the shop right now with no word yet as to what its problem might be. So it is doubtful that we'll ride over to Monterey; besides it looks like it may be a wet weekend. And my bike is waiting for some new belts, so it won't be going out for awhile. This past year has been hard on all of our vehicles, both two and four wheeled! Right now the only bike that is road worthy is my little V-Star (I think!). We're getting a slow start, but I feel certain we'll be out & about shortly. We like to ride up on the Blue Ridge Parkway; maybe we can meet up there for a ride some time this riding season!

Hey Herwing, two nights ago my store burnt down. Lost Subway,c-store,fudge shop etc. The second story is a mush on the ground. Haven't been on the internet much. Started at 2:25am. I was there from 2:34am till late the next day. They had it out about 8 in the morning. No one was hurt. Worried about my employees and rebuilding. I meet w/insurance and investigators tommorow. Hope I can get out and ride just to calm down but if you don't see me online, you'll know why....

Hog, I'm so sorry to hear about your store! You just take care of things and don't worry about me - I check this site sporadically, anyway. Hope you got out and enjoyed a bit of the beautiful weekend in spite of the situation! We rode over to Monterey on my hubby's bike Saturday - it was great!
Take care!

Fellow Dominion Hacks,
Starting to look ahead to riding to the national rally this year in VT. I still intend to go via MD-PA-NY finger lakes- Adirondacks and over to Burlington VT. I would enjoy having a few more hacks to ride with. let me know if you are interested. I have reasonable flexibility on start date and route is open to those who ride.
