    BUG BASH XVI On The Road Aug 2 - 4th 2019

    Bug Bash XVI ON THE ROAD Aug 2 Aug 4 2019

    Trying a little something different this year. We're taking Bug Bash on the road to Athens Ohio.

    So set the dates aside and plan to ride to Athens, Ohio for BUG BASH XVI OTR.

    It's that time again..BUG BASH XVI OTR

    The Bash continues. This event is nothing without all of you.

    I can't believe this thing is going on 16 years! Wow!

    So what are you waiting for, book a room?!

    DATES: Aug 2nd Aug 4th

    WHERE: Athens, Ohio

    WHY: Why not?!!!!!!!!!!!

    HOTEL:

    Holiday Inn Express
    555 East State Street

    Athens, OH 45701
    740-592-4640

    The "BUG BASH GROUP"

    The rate will be valid as long as we have rooms available, up to and including JUL 2 2019.

    The rate this year is $129.00 . They've renovated every room. You might be able to do better with AAA. Just check around.

    BE SURE TO MENTION "BUG BASH GROUP" TO GET THE RATE!!

    Holiday Inn Express really likes our group and looks forward to us showing up. Remember to use you kickstand plate again this year.

    Details to follow...

    As I figure things out.

    Hope to see all those who've made it in the past and more.

    As always if you have any suggestions you can PM me or email me at BugBash At earthlink.net

    See you then!!!!

    Don't think I'll be moving it that far West. It makes it hard for me to make pick hotels, restaurants and make trial runs. Wish you guys could make it out this way someday.

    It is a bit far for me as well. 942 miles by back roads according to Google Maps. Probably a three or four day ride for me.

    But I am meeting my brother to play disc golf in Kentucky in early August. Date TBD. He is driving down from Michigan. Perhaps I could fly to Ohio, rent a bike. Go ride with you guys and then connect with my brother.

    Crazy idea?

    Sure would like to see a "Bug Bash" West Coast one year, then East Coast, the next. Alternating East/West coasts.

    Or, East/central/West alternating every 3 years...The USA is just too vast to expect people to ride for weeks, just to ride a couple days and see people that have pretty much moved on.

    Then again, with so many other avenue's to consume our time, this may be a dying forum. (That would be a bummer, but look at it honestly.)

    Going along with your same notion of it being too much to expect west coasters to attend an east coast Bug Bash, I think expecting the Bug Bash originators (east coasters) to organize a west coast bug bash is unrealistic.

    Get your own event going and post it up!

    Looking forward to this one.
    The cost of a motorcycle is merely a down payment on farkles.
