Greetings, all!

Any other RE owners headed for the Triumph rally at Oley the end of this month? Haven't heard of any coordinated plan... It would be good to catch up with fellow RE owners! the meet is supposed to be excellent! Brian: I've been trying to send a PM... Give me a call!

REgards!

I might be able to come on the Interceptor. (I say this a lot, don't I.) If I come on Saturday, where are we meeting? We should be all together somewhere.

Rob..I hope you can make it!!! We have quite a few people already confirmed! Most interceptors in one spot USA? Al hartmen ( the nice fella running the triumph rally) has graciously allowed us a special area so we can all park,camp together! When u get to gate ask where Enfield folks are camped, I believe it is straight back from entrance near lean-to. Hope to see ya there. Brian

Keane, i have to admit..I don't know the full schedule..although, I was thinking that the Lucas ice cream run was going to be a good group ride. It;s an arrowed ride run by Richard C. a friend from Bucks county. He spends a lot of effort putting this ride on and I think it would be a good ride to go on…but anything is possible..Brian This is really shaping up to be a good rally!!!!!
**Keane, please text me as I have lost my contact list and have no digits…..


John R.. sorry to hear you can't make it. I was hoping to drink a few with ya…..next year….

Hi Brian,
Good seeing you at the Rally !
Question, how'd you get your photos posted directly on the forum ???
I'd like to post some pics, but running them through photobucket just posts a link, not the actual photo...

Oily, posting to photobucket is the hard part (for me). Under your photobucket pic - copy the 'direct' link. On Britbike.com use the 'Full Reply'. Enter your text and when ready to post a pic click the 4th icon, where a mouse-over comes up that says 'enter an image'. Pick one of the image location choices. Paste your link in the pop-up.
Always preview your reply to make sure the images appear correctly.

I had a blast.Never saw/heard/rode with, so many Royal Enfields and Interceptors at the same time.Big crew from Ontario.Great people,great machines and a great time.Perhaps being, that this is billed as a Triumph rally,Norton's,BSA's and other Brit bikes were seemingly more scarce than Royal Enfields. Not a good thing.There are plenty of these machines in the area.Watching BigTwin's Interceptor being pushed for a bump start made me feel young again. Brian's pictures revealed that I need to go on a diet. laughing LOL

Yeah, a shame the main venue is "Triumphcentric". It would be fun to have a "Brit Bike Blow In", open to all makes and models.I live near the grounds of the PA Ren Fair , and they have at least as much ground as Oley.And it's just off the PA t-pike. Seems like a potential spot for some sort of rally.I've seen a VW owner's group have a meet there, so it shouldn't be out of the question....

It would be great if RE owners in the west had a rally of their own.

I think it's a great idea. All it takes is some motivated folks with the extra time and maybe some connections to make it happen.I'm sure there's lots of Enfield folk that would show up if the rallies were more localized.
