    Ride update

    Just got off the phone with Sal of Reno HD. He has 4 bikes left for rent, so if you are thinking of joining us for the ride, please call Sal at 1.800.867.7661. We have 10 confirmed rentals, plus about 15-20 who will be riding in. Sal has a V-Rod, a deuce and a night train left. See you all real soon.

    Larry,

    It's a good thing to ride around Tahoe. The last time I rode Tahoe was July 1996 with fellow HOGgers from AZ. We had to put on leathers in the high spots. It got a bit chilly. I just came through Reno on a road trip to/from Oregon. The temp was a high 90'ish and 60'ish in the morning down in the valley areas.

    I'm renting a Heritage for Thursday July 8th to leave out from HD rental center at Buell about 9:45 AM to be back at 4PM. It's not far from the Hilton, but it's on a service road off of Glendale, (Market?). (775) 329-2913. They have lots of bikes and may still have some available for Thursday. Friday and the weekend may get tighter.

    My route is to go through Carson City to Hwy 50 west to the lake and go north. That's less than 50 miles. It should be about 80-90 miles around the lake. The first stop will be at the Ponderosa before Incline Village. Maybe lunch there. (There's the Railroad Museum in Carson City some may want to stop at, but I don't want to linger too long at any one place with the rental on the clock.)

    Then around the north end of the lake through North Lake Tahoe with maybe a stop at the Kaisor mansion (in Godfather movie). We don't plan on any major stops, but we can check out the boat ride or something for another day.

    Next we'll go around the south end of the lake through Stateline/Heavenly Valley area and maybe check out the beach. There is supposed to be some sailboat cannibal races that weekend.

    Back up to Hwy 50, we'll go back through Carson City to Virginia City and hang out there for a bit until we need to get the bike back.

    That's the plan. If any one wants to join us, come on down.

    Keep the sunny side up.

    Semper Fi,
    Jim Steckbauer

    HD Reno still has 4 bikes for rent for our little outing. He can be reached at 1.800.867.7661 and ask for Sal. He asks that anyone that has reserved one to call him and give him the appropriate info so we can get on the road quickly Friday. I am READY!!!!

    Reunion Ride

    Gentlemen & Ladies

    JD has given me permission to hold a pre-ride brief in the SNAFU room on Thurs the 8th at 1600 (4 PM civilian time). We can discuss whether or not we want to go by the Ponderosa or just ride around the Lake, whatever. I will have maps available for everyone in case we get seperated. I have e-mailed Sal at HD Reno asking if he would come to the Hilton at 1600 on Thurs to take care of the paperwork on the rentals - will let you know what he says. Getting really excited about this!!!!

    Reunion ride

    I am also interested in a ride to Virginia City. I will be riding my Ultra from LA on the 4th or 5th of July. Anybody heading up 395 around that time. After the reunion I will be leaving around Wed for home in Michigan, anybody heading that way.

    Reunion M/C Ride

    Just to let you know, I got off the phone with Sal at Reno HD a few minutes ago. I reserved a Heritage for the ride. They still have some bikes, but anyone interested in the reunion ride needs to act quickly.

    Reunion Motorcycle Ride

    Since my wife and I are coming to the Reunion on our ride, a trip around Lake Tahoe sounds like a lot more fun than golf (I never have figured out which end of that club to use). Where can we find out the details, such as where to meet, what time to start, etc.

    Rental Rates

    The rates at HD Reno go from $95/6 Hrs to $135/6 Hrs with a $1,000 deposit on a major credit card. You can call Sal at the number shown in the earlier notam. There is also a place at the Hilton that is opening this month, but they want a $3,000 deposit. Little too rich for me!!

    Reno Ride

    Listen UP!!!

    Just got off the phone with HD of Reno. They have 10 bikes left to rent for the 9th and to his knowledge, there are no other bike rental places in Reno. They have 2 Heritage Soft Tails, 1 Duece, 1 Night Train, 1 Fat Boy, 2 Dyna Wide Glides, 1 Lowrider and 2 Road Kings. They said that we could do the ride to Lake Tahoe and the Ponderosa at Incline Village by 1500, even leaving at 0900 from HD of Reno. I am getting really excited about this. Hope that there a number of you "riding in" for the reunion.

    Larry

    PS - Phone number for Reno HD is 775.329.2913 and ask for Sal.

    Hi guys, This e-mail is going out to anyone that might be nterested in riding their bikes from Memphis,TN to Reno for the reunion. We would probably leave the 3rd or 4th of July & ride 300 to 400 miles a day to get there. Larry Zok wants to do a ride around Lake Tahoe Friday while we are in Reno. We might ride over to see the CA. redwoods after the reunion & then head back eastbound. If anyone thinks they want to join us just give me an e-mail or call me at 901-751-8655. Hopefully the webmasters can splash this out to the membership also. Looking forward to the ride.

    reunion bike ride in reno

    I am writing for my husband James Mincey, HML-167. He couldn't get his log in to work. We are very interested in the bike ride.

    Harley Display

    I thought any of the people interested in the ride would also like to know that the Reno National Automobile Museum will be having a special showing of Harley-Davidson cycles from various eras during our Reunion time. The museum is located in downtown Reno about 5 minutes from the Hilton.

    HMM-163 is having their squadron dinner at the musuem on Friday evening after it closes to the public.

    reunion motor cycle ride

    sounds like the kind of riding we do up here, around Mt. St. Helens then up and over to Mt, Ranier - 350 miles + just for a hamburger at eagle crest and a piece of pie at spiffies on the way home.
