This is close to my home, so I'll probably make it one day at least. Maybe I'll start a thread, and forum members can meet there.

I'm probably going to go. That's pretty far in the future though, you never know...... :)

Dave, looks good to me, at least for a day. I'm in Fallbrook and this place is about 10 minutes away, so it's a no-brainer.

Well, it's happening next weekend. Anybody going to go? Maybe for 1 day?
Perhaps we could show up in a group, and show the yokels (non aprilia riders) what obviously superior...er..ah..I mean... discriminating riders choose to ride.

LD, the one day visit sounds good. Although their flyer says 'no day passes' I'm sure we can get in to crash their party.

I'll swing by there tomorrow and get the scoop. I need an excuse to ride anyway, even it it's 15 minutes away.

There is some discussion about the POSSIBILITY of day passes.

My two cents.
(note that I am NOT an event organizer, I have only met them a few times...)
I remember the first Guzzi Rally I attended four years ago.
I paid twenty or thirty bucks for a cup of coffee and five minutes of shyly talking to strangers, ten minutes of checking out the bikes and then leaving.
The next year I again shelled out the money but knew a couple people, and so got more involved and discovered there were rides to go on, dinner, bike show and prizes, and more.
Local people won't get their money's worth out of it per say, if they just show up for a ride and a coffee, but if you get the coffee, a ride, a bagel, a coke and schmoooze, and win prizes and enjoy the dinners, you can get alot out of it.
Heck, I drank ten dollars worth of red bull at the last rally!
But more importantly, these rallies won't happen without someone paying so that there is a campground to attract riders from all over the South-West.
I think of it as a charity, but I still pig out.

I went by the place yesterday and it ain't exactly yer top notch KOA, if ya know what I mean. Derelict camper shells on blocks that serve as permanent residences and that sort of thing. A nice green pond for breeding west nile dispensers ... you know the kind.

But no matter, if it's crawling with cool old machinery that's all that counts.

And it looks like one could easily take a casual cruise through to stop and hang out for a while. That's what I did although the office was closed at the time so Bubba wasn't on patrol.

No doubt. Poor bastards camping in this crapola have to be hating life about now.

Let's regroup for a ride when it clears up.

The rally was a lot of fun.
I wish more Euro machinery showed up.
It was more than 75% Guzzi(and not a single mosquito : )
The campground was alot nicer than the Ramona Dos Picos campground where previous Guzzi Rallies took place.
The weather was a little damp, but not enough rain to bug the campers.
I think it did keep the turnout down a little.
