Once again, we are planning a Tiddler to the Top for small motorcycles & scooters during the 2018 Rich Mountain Rendezvous, a great rally where the CASA folks keep us well fed and entertained.
We are planning both on and off pavement Tiddler rides:
Friday, September 14th - Rider's Meeting at 8:30am:
Friday's Tiddler is planned as an on/off pavement group ride- I plan to lead on our TW. The route is ±95 miles, with a gas stop at ±15 miles, a lunch break at ±60 miles & a gas stop at ±65 miles. Off-pavement miles will be groomed NFS/county roads. All riders are invited to join us - our pace will be amenable to Tiddler bikes. We'll plan to return to camp by, say, 3pm. Compared to last year, I plan to shorten the morning route so we can incorporate the off-pavement afternoon return route.
Distance from Last Gas Stop on Friday to 1st Gas Stop on Saturday is ±75 miles.
Saturday, September 15th -Riders Meeting at 8:30am:
Saturday's Tiddler is a planned as a self-guided ride (same route as last year, but with route sheets readily available) heading West twds Oklahoma. The primary route is ±127 mile paved road route with a gas stop at ±40 miles and gas/lunch stops at ±80 miles. However, there are a some options for side trips to see old bridges and/or ride across the dam of a small lake. There will also be an true short-cut thru the woods for the adventurous that cuts off 12 miles - suitable for T-Dub's.
It is proposed that, for Saturday, we form small groups of similar size bikes to ride together. The route is not difficult, but can present a challenge for the smaller/older bikes due to the elevation changes. We should all return to camp by, say, 3pm to rest up for the evening festivities. As of now, I'm thinking we'll bring up my Honda MB-5 and Mrs. SwampFox's Zuma 50F for this Saturday Tiddler, but I may yet decide to ride the TW on Saturday as well.
This rally is lots of fun, and the Tiddler offers a unique opportunity to ride the area with similar size bikes. Please let skase98 or me know if you have any questions. Hope to see you there.
