Force ride 3 - so where?

well, it's less than a year so we need to start looking ahead!

maybe we need a vote?

maybe we need a leader?

i noticed that people were a little selfish when the subject came up this time last year. we need some honesty about how good an area is - even better if someone from 'outside' agrees with you!

my vote was for the carolinas, altitude, panoramic great views, wilderness but most of all some great rides!

the bad side was that march would then be too soon for this altitude and also that we only have coupla members from that region.

oregon has many members who no doubt will now come out of the woodwork. i find it slightly unpalatable but there....

i think it's important that ossaman (mike), has a say as well as anyone who ORGANISED and made force ride 2 such a great experience.

i hope that we can sort this out on this thread.

leadership is required here!

California, why not, except that most of us will not be allowed to dual sport, unless they let you do it if you have a bike plated in a different state?

Also what's the cost of the sticker?

Otherwise, it would be fun (and not far from my house).

i would say your attendance here has actually increased in the last year but alas the same cannot be said for many of the oregon and WA state lads...

they seem to leave the radar in between rides and that makes it hard to back (i have to buy flights and trust lots of things to go right) them.

for me, seeing these guys around is important. i hope you can see that.

inversely, if i came from the states i would, like you, wonder what the fuss was?

all the best

Thank's alot Taffy,your answer makes complete sence to me!!

If the group would consider showing up in oregon (china hat) let me be the first to say
that myself & many would provide the UHE MEMBERS with what should be the reason
to get away for the week & have more fun than should be legal without a permit!!

I will also be able to do a great deal more for the cause, & providing bikes for the ones who
fly in! The area has a trail system that is great for all & maps are at every location
that is a staging point.Plenty of wood for great camping & town is only 20mi.Please
just consider the offer we can hash out the details.

basically i'm easy just need to know in advance so i can get the time off wrk.

whilst i would quite fancy bosses part of the world from what he said last year i would say lets go with the area thats goin to get the biggest attendance and has the facilities to accomodate us, where ever that may be.

of course goes without saying that theres got to be some good riding as well.

I could really careless where it is, I just want to know dates ! Truth be told the Carolinas would be a pretty far haul for me, if it could stay west of the Mississippi that would be my preference.Not to be a homer here, however Moab is always on the table for me, I can't get enough of that place.

out of the wookwork

China hat is a great place to ride and if BOSS is involved even better.

Let me know what I can do to help on this. WA state does also have a lot to offer....

Just because some of the OR and WA riders don't comment all the time does not mean that we are not observing. By next year (actually 2 months) I will be living in Spokane, (Viking's area) and still have a 9 hour drive but having ridden the area if I can get the time off from the new job That will be where I cast my vote! Great stuff there and I know of at-least 1 other Berg rider (that does not post on here 'cuz he is a weenie) that wants to go.. His wife wont let him go any farther, he needs to be close to a hospital or life flight...Rick knows Pops, just ask him how much he likes too crash!!! My $.02..
