I started the thread " have pets" and I must say I'm glad to see that there are quite a few animal lovers out there.In saying that, I am working on a fund raiser for the local animal shelter here where I live. I have a band and DJ that are willing to play at no charge. The Bike Night spot is also giving up the place for this event.This is planned hopefully in March 09. I am trying to come up with a nice ride that will draw a lot of bikes(goal of at least 500) with a entry of $20 per bike. I prefer interstate myself where you aren't doing the 30 mph drives when there are quite a lot of bikes. I am aware of the pro's and cons of both. I have an idea of the route which doesn't include country roads. What would you prefer.....country or interstate?
