  1. Yesterday
  2. You say that, BUT.... we DID stay at the Arlington Hotel. And still missed people, rides, gatherings......
  3. Last week
  4. One of the benefits of staying at the main hotel location, or leveraging the FB Group page ( i know .. I know) .. I was just at another event (military related association) ... didn't stay at the host hotel. I won't make that mistake again with them ... Puts you at the core of everything happening ... and allows one to stay up to date on current info ( ie rides, etc)
  5. Again, GREAT to see everyone! I do wish we could do a better job of getting info out on rides that are going on AFTER arrival. This isn't a IIRA problem only, as I was one of those who donated extra to be in the front of the ATTEMPT but because I don't have FB I had no idea I was supposed to arrive to be lined up at 0630! F THAT! Obviously as I wanted to ride in with my IIRA brothers/sisters, which I did and enjoyed being in the middle of the pack with them. I'm just saying, if it's not an IIRA "sole" event, let's try to get a text or email distro to IIRA members so they will know when/where daily rides will occur so they can plan accordingly. Fodder for future thought for future rallies.

  9. Few thoughts on the past weekend.... The Gregory 651 (500+) World Record Parade
  10. The Dip in MN doesn't have the same reputation going for him that the man in Little Rock has.
  11. Good to see you as well!!!! On the MN / Dipshit subject.. .he's stooping to a new low , his new angle is making it about several riders whom passed to get attendance up.... sad
  12. Great to see everyone in Hot Springs and congrats to all 651 who made it happen! Especially to Ray (from Louisiana) who was #275! Oh and guess what?!?!? My wife just pointed out that she saw on FB that the dipshit in MN is already posting to try and get 1000 at bike week in 2020 to try and break 3 records at once. Scalper
  13. Making me THIRSTY!
  14. The official Guinness World Record ride “THE GREGORY’S INDIAN 500+” will stage at the Barrett Camp Complex (formerly VFW Post 2278), 2231 E Grand Ave, Hot Springs, AR 71901. This is behind the KOA Campground. Please... PLEASE.... P L E A S E register early so as not to add to the mass confusion that may occur with one hundred riders wanting to register at the last minute! Take advantage of early check-in on Friday night! KICK STANDS UP AT 10:30AM, make sure to arrive early to get in the line up of hundreds of bikes. If you prefer to ride amongst your own group in the line-up, make sure you arrive together - bikes will be lined up as they arrive. Find a shady spot, relax, view the custom touches on the bikes and enjoy the building excitement. Coffee and donuts will be available, or roam over to Grandpa’s Griddle at the KOA for breakfast. It is easily within walking distance with paved paths to it behind the Barrett Center, and golf carts will also be shuttling people back and forth. Upon return from the World Record Breaking ride, we will wait for the official count and announcement from the Guinness World Record Representative *The Iron Indians will have a few of our own rides and a couple of top-secret gathering spots!

  15. Pre-Parade Staging is at Fat Jacks Oyster Bar. One minute from The Arlington Hotel IIRA HQ and the Gregorys Indian 500 ! We will ride over to the Barrett Camp Complex as a group.... in order to line-up as a group. 7:30 AM
  16. Compilation of INFO Welcome aboard! See you in Hot Springs! https://gregory500.blogspot.com/
  17. just got home from the Smith Family Services in Arkansas... I know you are not a facebook guy..Scalper the family has given permission to put just about any and all pics here on members site. Still a bit too soon for me. I'll try and make that happen in the very near future. Was an amazing show of love and support for Longrider. He will be around in our hearts and minds for a very long time... His brother Wildhorse rode his Spirit Lake Indian on our Tribute Ride as well as in the funeral procession. I'm working on the video of that and will post it here asap
  18. Damn, just read this again.
  19. 350+ bikes registered.... next goal is 400 ... another week or two I'm guessing. 500/ 600 bikes should be at this event.. Gonna' Rock!
  20. Room booked. Trying to get a special guest to attend as well.
  21. Scalper just mention iira when making reservation. will be good to see you and 38 special.
  22. Is there a group code to do the reservation online or do we have to call to get the special IIRA rates?
  23. Negative: ARLINGTON Hotel: Here we go! This is the hotel we are rolling into. Rates are from 3-6 October which is when most are rolling in This is ONLY for the IIRA. Please do not distribute outside IIRA. Please do not post on social media outside of the IIRA This event is for ALL Indian Riders BUT this Group Rate / Hotel is ONLY for the IIRA. If you want to stay somewhere else, its your choice of course. BUT..this place is NICE!!!!! Look forward to seeing you at the TRI-STATE in the 'Springs / Gregory's 500+
  24. Heard rumors of IIRA staying at The Hotel Hot Springs. Any truth to that?
  25. I hope everyone is having a blast in Texas !!! 

  26. Gregorys 500 non facebook link
  27. This just posted on FB .. not sure if you can see it here
  28. I've been quiet on this subject for the most part, focused on Hill Country next month. Then, go into High Gear for this! Bottom line... The Little Rock Indian Motorcycle dealer is sponsoring / driving this event. Historically, on this particular weekend/area, the IOA has a get together... conveniently, it happens to be at the same time. However, myself and quite a few others plan on rolling in wearing our IIRA back patches proudly. Hell, we may be the majority, when the smoke clears. It's a non specific organization event though ( officially ). I'm doing my best to keep this about Indian Motorcycle Riders as a whole; but my focus will be the IIRA More history. Up in MN back in 2015/2016 a record was set for most Indian Motorcycles in a 'parade' . Off the top of my head it was 265, then 274 bikes. That's it. But it's harder than you'd imagine getting that many together for a quick short ride, and then doing all the official bullshit. Gregory Polaris has that headache this year. Next month in Europe they are doing it also, and they have 350 BIKES registered now..... so I'm guessing the new record will be 3-something to beat. I'm pretty sure we can pull it off. Now, a lot of folks will say "that's it? I've seen more. I could get more than that many together" .. I say .. BS. The HD record is only 2404, and that was set almost a decade ago in Greece. Think about that one... with the hundreds of thousands... millions... of HDs in this country .. only 2404? Point being... it's a bitch getting folks to line up and do it right. Now... I wouldn't expect everyone to travel all that way to line up for a 4 mile ride. I wouldn't. I won't. BUT... we're all rolling in for a great weekend of riding in the Hot Springs State Park. Some of the best riding in the country. I've been up there multiple times. We've got a lot of IIRA members that live in the area; Southwinds Chapter is based out of Hot Springs. It's going to be a blast. Hot Springs itself isn't that big... so imagine a weekend with literally HUNDREDS and HUNDREDS of Indian Motorcycles all over the town... and only a few HDs and Metrics. I like it. Lots of good places there to grab a cold one, good food, entertainment, etc. But .. I've got to be honest.. if this thing explodes and we end up with more than 500 bikes ... how badass would that be? For now, recommend you head to this >>LINK << to sign up. The hotel many of us IIRA folks signed up at is the ARLINGTON. We're in a holding pattern to get folks more reservations. Lot of IOA folks are staying at the Best Western; but it's filled up. Like I said, my focus today .. is the IIRA Hill County Reunion.. then ... I'll start giving my info/updates on this event! And that info, will include places to stay, etc, etc, etc ~Rick
