There is a memorial located at the International Peace Gardens on the US/Canada border in North Dakota.

Remember what happened last time the "East Coast" had a ton of GT's?? Angel

The 9/11 theme would take you to a lot of cool places and read stories about amazing people that lost their lives that day. I need an excuse to ride more so I don't end up like Cruzin being sore after a couple hundreds miles. Tongue

RE: 2022 Grand Tour
I like the "Planes, Trains, and Automobiles" idea.

Airports, Train Stations, and Car/motorcycle... museums? Seems like dealerships would be too easy.

I also suggest the "Tour of Duty" every year. American Legions, VFW's, etc. 1 point for the location, and an extra point if they have some type of military equipment outside (cannons, tanks, helicopters, etc.)

IBA #41635

RE: 2022 Grand Tour
I really like the tour of duty theme too. There is what I think is an M24 tank outside the VFW here in Alexandria.

RE: 2022 Grand Tour
Why would we do the same thing as Tour of Duty ?

Would be the same as doing the same thing as Team Strange ?

I am not in favor of doing duplicates with other groups.

RE: 2022 Grand Tour
Was not aware they had done that. It's no longer on their site so it must have been some time ago.

RE: 2022 Grand Tour
I guess maybe I am misunderstanding. I thought Starwolve was suggesting we include the Tour of Honor sites as part of our Grand Tour. If so that is what I am not in favor of.

RE: 2022 Grand Tour
I have no idea what Tour of Duty/Honor is, relating to any motorcycle group event in the Midwest. If Team Strange did it, it must have been long ago. I checked their site for what they had done previously so I didn't repeat anything.

Ooooooh ok. Similar but different than what StarWolve was describing.

RE: 2022 Grand Tour
How about something different like this? Everyone have heard the song "I've Been Everywhere". How about a tour where you visit the towns/states listed in the song. I just down loaded the names, and there are 90 towns/states in the song. I'm sure there are numerous towns in the song that are in more than one state. You would need to take a picture to prove the state(post office, etc), but it should be very easy to do.

RE: 2022 Grand Tour
Team Strange did that not long ago. Not something we will copy.

Theme will be announced at the banquet, and then the next morning on this forum.
