  1. Weird... It's an over seas location for the company. Maybe you've got a security firewall of sorts killing the connection

    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.

    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)

    Heard rumors of IIRA staying at The Hotel Hot Springs.

     

    Any truth to that?

     

     

    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+

    How about some more info on this event?

    Where is it going to be held?

    Where is a good place to stay?

    What's for dinner?

    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

    way to far for that advance planning...but probably yes.... Mrs Harleynot has tricked me the past two years... with her...." I'll drive with you one way " and Fly one-way...statement...

    that's a LONG way to drive by myself........BOTH DIRECTIONS ...If I was on the #HarleynotEdition ... cross country ...it would be an epic trip... driving that RV for 3 days by myself......not so much fun... #Boring

     

     

      I had the exact OPPOSITE experience....  only way I was getting mama there this year.. was to take the RV so had her comfort.  I've spoiled this girl a lil too much over the years; the pics from my room didn't do much for her from '18.  I'm sure Lebanon Linda had nothing to do with it

  7. This should be an interesting one.     There are multiple facets to this whole thing.....

    We have an IIRA contingent rolling in.  That's reason enough to be there.  Secondly, the riding is awesome.  Third, it'd be nice to see the existing record get kicked to the wayside.  The guy that put that together in '16 and '17 needs to go away.. this will help that.  Finally, Rob Gregory in that pic, who has the dealership locally and behind this is a great guy....   worth supporting

    The existing record is only 274 bikes...but .. amazing how hard it is is get a group together to surpass that.  I believe we'll be north of 500 this time around.   Interestingly, on the same day, less than 200 miles away  in Paris TX, HD is doing an attempt as well..  

    Me personally .... I wouldn't go there JUST FOR THIS... but ... for the weekend, which will be awesome.  Hope to see you there 

    There are other Indian related riding groups going that direction . Would be nice to have a healthy number of IRON INDIANS there....

    If anyone one is coming to Minnesota to ride during the week of August 13th through the 20th and want to ride! Stay tuned!!! The Northwinds are putting together some rides. Most likely leaving out of Bison Thunder Motorcycle. There will be a lot to do that week.

    Looking forward to it!  I noticed that Bison has the Indian demo truck there on the 18/19/20 as well...
