I'll try this again... last year didn't work out.  Looking for people primarily from Illinois, Wisconsin, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, Missouri and Minnesota, although everyone is welcome.

Sometime this summer, probably July.

I'm thinking a meeting at Starved Rock State Park in Utica, IL. - but that is open depending on who is coming, and from where.  

All interested mid-westerners chime in!

Would love to go, just need to set a date soon as possible so that I can see if I can fit it in between kids functions, travelling for work, and family vacations.

I might give it a shot but I'm in the same boat. I coach 2 baseball teams.
Our schedule usually tapers off in July though.

Haha, I was going to try a Midwest Bandit Fest here in ST. Louis as well. Did you go to Wanderer's fest here back in 2003?

 I didn't have the bandit then but I still have his routes that they all took.

 If not I am open to riding up there to see everyone.

I think the wife and I will be around July 22.  I'll keep my eye on the thread for a finalized date and news on when you need an official yea or nay.

Sounds like a good time!
'03 VW GTI 1.8T
'91 VW Jetta Carat
'94 Mazda Miata

'03 Suzuki Bandit 1200S
'85 Kawasaki 454LTD

Five vehicles for two drivers?  Sounds about right to me....

I have to admit... I'm losing interest in this due to the f'ing whining I've gotten from some other riders about location, ride quality, ride-time, food, blah, blah, blah.

That being said, I would like to "soldier-on" and try to get the 1st ever Midwest Bandit Bash going.

So if there are like minded midwest Bandit owners who would like to just get together for the sake of getting together and not worry about all the details... please send me a message.

« Reply #13 on: June 03, 2006, 04:04:06 PM »
My wife and I always go down to Brown county the first week of october.. the riding down there is the best I have found this side of north carolina, lots of hotels at a decent price and all.. and that gives people more time to plan..just a thought, I am behind ya 100% on getting something going for a midwest Bandit rally.. and if you need any help getting things together let me know.. my wife and I have helped put together a rally or two before..as long as its not june 19th thru the 25th.. Ill be at the Dragon!!  woo hooo!!!!  take it easy all!!
