    Any annual NC meetings?

    While I had ST1100 I was meeting other ST owners from Midwest (MnSTOC, WiSTOC, LOCSTOC... More info on st-owners.com website). Although, I was skipping last 1-2 years (bought NC, totaled ST... , but this June I'm gonna meet others at LOCSTOC).
    But I can't find any NCOC, NCOG, NC Meets... any meetings?
    Is there anybody who would like to meet me and/or other Honda owners at the LOCSTOC?
    BTW, many ST owners switched from Honda to other brands but they kept coming to STOCs...

    We've had some successful NC gatherings in the past, but the interest seems to be fading. We just had a small meet up in North Carolina a couple weeks ago. We may do another in September.

    We tried one in northern Arkansas in April, but it flopped due low attendance.

    Where is LOCSTOC?

    I would attend a meeting like that... though North Carolina is a long way away from San Diego!...

    Waning NC interest... I can only guess at that. It's still the best commuter bike going, but that's not very "se*y" as they say.... While I'm not a fan of making ANYTHING more expensive, maybe it's time to make the NC shaft drive and promote it as a "sport/touring" bike...
    The African Twin can take over the "adventure" bike duties, and the CBRs can be the entry level?

    Wow... this all from someone who can barely spell "marketing".

    How about something on the west coast? I can think of a very cheap camp ground on Lake Mead near good old Las Vegas... I'm ready to ride...

    Throw it out there. Pick a place, pick a date (don’t ask, just pick it). Start a sign up sheet. See what happens.

    Yes, just pick a place and post it up. If you post a Ride To Eat or a camping weekend people will come. We had 3 annual NC events in FL back in 2012-2014.

    OK... I'll start working out the logistics. Camping by Lake Mead is good as there's a very well equipped site near one of the boat launches. I've camped there. $10 a night?

    Think of it....two nights camping with the main event of the ONE full day being a ride down the Vegas Strip to In N Out Burger just behind New York, New York.

    hhhmmmm......

    Hey.... I'M IN for a meet! I've tried several times to meet up with guys on the map anywhere in my local area all to no avail!! I've even offered to buy lunch, coffee or PIE!! Although Lake Mead is 1150 miles away for me to come, i'll try and take some time off from work if i can and i'll make it! That'd qualify me for the Saddle Sore Iron Butt run as well! Maybe make the meet in the area of Northern Cali, maybe even the Redwoods area then i'd bet we'd get several of the greater Seattle area guys as well. I'd be up for that too!! Great idea, i like it! :{)

    OK, then YOU get to pick what weekend it should be.

    the first ever summer edition of the "NC+ Howdy" gathering.
    Every event needs a goofy, memorable, name, so that will do for this...
    NC for the NC700X and the + for any other motorcycle someone might want to ride.

    The camp site could be [Temple Bar Campground] GPS = 36.031898, -114.325333
    It's the sort of place where you leave $10 in an envelope with the space # you're staying at in the drop near the entry.

    Keep in mind... summer temps are well above 100F in this part of the world.

    When do you want to go?

    We should do a travelling road show kind of thing, start at the Outer Banks in North Carolina and plan a route all the way to someplace like Santa Rosa in Northern California - NC to NC on a NC kind of thing, riders can jump in to the travelling circus along the way and ride as far as they want with the group.
