One successful event that has taken place on the way to the "UN Rally", put on by the BMW Sports Touring group, is a Pied Piper Run. Folks start out from far away and pick up others en-route. The group gets larger the closer it gets to the site. Some folks offer places to sleep inside. Some offer camp spots. Some choose to sleep at motels. It can all be very informal and flexible.
A couple of years ago, when the UN was in W. VA, we had 17 at our house two days before the event. Lots of fun. Can be loosely organized. Many different Pied Piper Runs can take place simultaneously and this forum is the perfect place to make it happen.
Here is a picture that was taken on our front porch during the stop over in 07.
Notice the rider was only PART of the gear, some of the time.
And then there was
And a mini tech day
And a group photo

I hope you all can get a sense of how much fun this could be. Memories that will last a lifetime.
