Re: Dracko!!

Kingjust, Wow, I remember your dad! Never met him, but remember the days of the original Vol web site. Your father was the best greeter for the newbies to the site and was well liked by all the members. Glad to hear the bike is still in operation after all these years. It looks like this site has go...

Re: GHOST TOWN

I joined the original Volusia Owner's site in March of 2002. Every now and then I check here and over at volusiariders.com (that I used to run) to see who's still around. The passage of time and different model bikes have caused a lot of people to vanish. The early years on this site are something a...

Re: Alaska trip, or other suggestions

The James Bay Road in Quebec is closer to you and very remote if you're into that sort of thing. I plan on doing it in 2011.

I remember WEB and then reading the post by his wife. It was incredible how soon after buying his bike that he was gone. That story is one I'll never forget.

Re: Group Rides - Anyone Have This Experience?

Over the years I have slowly migrated away from group rides. Take the group member with the lowest IQ and divde that by the number in the group and you'll get the group IQ. Seriously though, with any group over 7 or 8 riders I have not had a good time. When I've done the 30+ group rides I've just be...

Re: Completing the circle

I don't remember any of those events because I wasn't here for them. I didn't really know anything about the VR or VOL of old until I went to a rally or two. It seems the "old timers" are the most consistent at going to and keeping these events going. I do know that this is one heck of a ...

I remember laughing to the point of tears from that old site but I also remember the passing of Dracko and the riders who lost their lives while on the road. Then VR was born in ...
