**6th ANNUAL ACADIA PARK, BAR HARBOR MAINE RALLY! may 16-18 2014**

Andrew Squiggman /

Well everybody, It is getting to be that time of year again. Once again we will be having the camping and ride. Last years turnout was truly excellent!

put it on your calendars, and come!

Arrive on Friday, get to camping, wrenching, riding, whatever. Saturday will be the main ride, we try to leave around 9:30 -10:00. ride the park ark loop road, back roads, to the top of Cadillac mountain, to the water's edge, and on.

we get lunch in Bar Harbor, refuel, and ride some more. some will go back to camp, some more will go on other runs, exploring the Island. In past years we have covered 100 miles on Saturday alone.

Sunday is for whatever ya want to do. ride, go home, whatever.

Camping is at the KOA campground, right when you get onto Mount Desert Island. We use the tent sites, that are Oceanside. They allow up to 2 tents, and 4 people per tent site. one of the sites was voted one of the top 5 most scenic KOA sites in the country! there is also RV sites if that is your thing, and there are cabin rentals too.

KOA BAR HARBOR SITE

If you have never been to mount desert Island, Acadia Nat'l Park I highly recommend it.

Check out these threads from years past!

lots of good pictures. If you have been here before, please post pictures from your ride!

Oh man, I might have to do this Andy. Spent some time up there late last summer and I still think about it daily.

Any reason for choosing the KOA Campgrounds over the State park? Besides for lack of parking at site, noise rules and fire rules...

Oh wait...

Still, I'll have to see if I can get some time off.

Haha, I'll see what I can do. Issue is I don't know what my photoshoot/issue schedule is for that period.

Magazine's gotta hit the shelves whether I wanna blast the Loop Road or not.

I'd love to do this, but I doubt I will be able to get that weekend off.

HOWEVER, if anyone riding to Acadia needs a place to crash before or after this event, contact me. I live in Portland and have a garage and tools to work on stuff, a big yard for tents, and even a finished basement with a bar.

Also, Maine Moped Factory is like 5 minutes from my house if needed.

Re: **6th ANNUAL ACADIA PARK, BAR HARBOR MAINE RALLY! may 16-18 2014**

Yo I'm def going, I kinda got some glamour shots that weekend for a photo shoot/hunky fireman calendar, but I guess that's gonna have to wait... Got about 3 or 4 people coming with, gonna be a good time everyone should go!

Simon Picard /

YES!! I had such a blast last year!!

We (us the Canadians) will be coming in great number again this year. Since may 19th is a statutory holiday for us in Canada, we were thinking about maybe spending the sunday night at the campgroung, so if anybody wants to stay longer with us it would be great!

Andy, will there be any lobster this year?

can't wait!!

Re: **6th ANNUAL ACADIA PARK, BAR HARBOR MAINE RALLY! may 16-18 2014**

Simon! I am thinking about taking time off around that weekend to hang out.

I was looking forward to making it up this year, sucks the tomahawk cup interferes. Love the shirt!

RALLY SHIRTS

Andrew Squiggman /

****************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************

OK, What are peoples thoughts on shirts?

I had a batch printed up last year, and It was successful, and I have gotten a few requests for last years shirts since then.

I was considering a new design this year, but If people just want last years design again, (of course I can change the dates to this years) I can do that.

In order to print the shirts, I need a minimum of 25 orders. what are your thoughts? If they are pre paid they can be delivered right at the rally, which would be tons easier than it was last year mailing every shirt.

here was last years design:

Re: RALLY SHIRTS

Dirty30 Dillon /

I liked that shirt, but if you got cool ideas lets do it.

Would pay in advance a la rally packs

Re: RALLY SHIRTS

Andrew Squiggman /

what if rally packs contained a shirt, and a live lobster? (to be cooked at the campsite, or released back into the ocean)?

Re: **6th ANNUAL ACADIA PARK, BAR HARBOR MAINE RALLY! may 16-18 2014**

Simon Picard /

i want another t-sgirt this year and all the other subsequent years too......but the problem is that in five years i'll have 7 of them.....people will think i wear the same t-shirt every day.....

so why don't you just change the color of the moped or the writing!?

like that the original design will stay but they will all look a bit different..

Re: **6th ANNUAL ACADIA PARK, BAR HARBOR MAINE RALLY! may 16-18 2014**

Beard Road Bruiser (SoB) /

Just bored and playing around with shirt ideas. Maybe switch it up?
