14th annual 2014 BRP Trip After Labor Day Trip

I wasn't sure sure exactly when it all started but according to this 3rd annual thread it must of been the year 2000 when Eddie, Mike and Rob first made the journey..


And the list of riders for the 2003 was quite impressive

Fast forward to ten years later 2013 trip

Well I believe the plan is same as the past... Leave with a group or come whenever is works best for you but in the end just get there!

A few of us will leave Tuesday bright and early and make a 2 day run across OH, WV, VA and stay in Roanoke or wherever the route takes us the 1st night, then Head down BLUE RIDGE PARKWAY to the BRP Motorcycle Only Camp.. The have cabins its been about $45 a night for 2 beds so we encourage you to call ahead and reserve can't beat those prices when you split a cabin! Tent camping is available and does cost less than splitting a cabin but not much!

So all you have to do is decide how many days you are free from the daily grind and figure it out from there.

We do have a 1 day back roads route down from Cincinnati as well if we need to dodge some weather using the 2 day route.


I'm planning to leave Tuesday Sept 2nd(day after labor day), who else will be joining me? and who cant leave then and will head for the BRP campground after that??

It's a great time, with great roads to ride and you will be tired every night from riding and sleep good trust me[a12]

In!!! And first….again.

A-N-D….if Woz pulls the old "I'm too poor to go on the ride with you guys this year" I say we take up a collection for him and MAKE him do the trip. 'Course, it also means he has to sleep in an old leaky tent so his sleeping bag is soaked every morning and his three-day-old undies are growing a mold crop that would make a FEMA housing trailer a year after Katrina blush.

You just want him to go so you are the youngest dood sporting a golden buckeye card and might be able to double up on the discounts during this trip!

I try to make this just about every year, but ever since it slid back into September, it gets complicated for me with school in session. It is my intent to line up a babysitter this year though, and I plan to attend one way or another.

I TRIED to catch up with everyone in 2011, but ending up turning around before I even got 50 miles down the road due to instability problems at highway speeds.

This year will be different.

I'll actually be down there labor day weekend. My wife, some friends and I take our zippy cars down there on that weekend every year going on about 10 years now. My Z is not comfortable enough to trek all the way down there and then ride some more. Next year, I'm thinking I'm going to be on a Super Tenere which will be better for that sort of thing.

I'm too poor to go on the ride with you guys this year
(all collected money should be collected in a plain, black canvas bag with a yellow piece of tape around the strap. PM me and I'll give details for the drop)
I wake up every morning in a soaking wet sleeping bag! Now, at this point, I could imply I'm with an old bag, we are having morning sex and she's soaking wet with sweat due to menopause-- but, I won't go there because, the truth is-- I piss the bed.
As far as the moldy underwear-- ya-- so, what's your point?
