SabMag Whales Jan 15th to 29th, 2005

SMWhales will be a Moto trip down Baja to view the Whales as they give birth in the Lagoons of Baja, Ca. There will be two to three days of whale watching. The above couple of weeks is when 80% of the newborns happen. Then there will be a week to explore San Ignacio, Mulege, and Loreto. I realize that this is not a trip for most of you, but if you have the time and inclination you are most welcome. For information search 'Baja Whale watching' . There will be some cars joining in this trip as well. Some Camping and some moteling available.

SMAZ - SabMag Arizona (Chandler, Phoenix 'burb) Weekend of April 2 & 3, 2005 **NOTE - New Date**

Can't provide any additional details right now because I don't have them. That means all things are possible. I know one thing for sure, if ltl doesn't show up for this one I say every single motorcyclist that does should accompany me to his doorstep. he'll ride pillion on my bike if nothing else!

bring your cameras!

who's in?

Last year this was the agenda:

Ride will be from Phoenix/Wickenburg/Prescott/Jerome and then either:

Big loop (gorilla route): 89 to Sedona/Flagstaff take the Lake Mary route to Payson and home or:

Smaller loop (tender tush route): cut across through Camp Verde to Payson and back home.

Either way, it will be a good time. Saturday night party at the Casa. For those souls that want a little more, on Sunday we can make a run out to Tortilla Flat to meet the local biker boyz.

We've got guest rooms and floor space for the housebroken Maggots and plenty of yard space for those of you who aren't. If its hot, we'll be swimming, if it's not...a fire in the outdoor fireplace, food, and beer, plenty of beer.

For those of you that have been here before, welcome back. For those that haven't yet, it's about time! I promise you, you will never be the same. riding with me? Contact TOWMBO for further details.
SME 9.9 Spring Shakedown, April 21-24, 2005

Mark your calendars for the Spring Shakedown, April 21-24, 2005

Since it worked out so well last year, once again I've made arrangements at Burr Oak State Park and they've got a block of cabins set aside for us. It's the same deal as last spring, rent a cabin for Friday and Saturday night, get Thursday night free. I haven't got the confirmation letter yet with the final pricing but it's supposed to be about the same. (Last spring we paid $124/night.)

For those who weren't there last year: Burr Oak is a few miles east of Glouster Ohio on SR-78, near the infamous SR-555. The cabins in our area have two bedrooms each. One bedroom has a double bed and the other has two twins, and each cabin also has one rollaway bed. They have full linens and kitchens. The park also offers other types of cabins, plus lodge rooms and camping, but they are in different areas. Last spring many of the folks who prefer to camp, set up camp in the large screen porches of the cabins, and this worked out pretty well for keeping most of the group together.

If you want to reserve a cabin, call Cathy Jones at Burr Oak directly, she is the group reservations person there. Her phone number is (740)767-3639. Or you can reserve online via Either way, you want to reserve under the Sabmag group name to get a cabin in our area.

Seeya there!

Contact Katherine Becker if you need further information. Last year's info is here: SME 8.9 Spring Shakedown
V4HondaBBS - Spring Get Together - May 19-22

The fine folks from the V4Hondabbbs board are getting together in the beautiful countryside of western North Carolina and would like to invite any SabMag members to join us. This is the first major event for the members of the board and promises to be a memorable time.

We will be meeting at the Blue Ridge Motorcycle Camp from Thursday, May 19th through Sunday May 22nd. We are planning to do a lot of riding during the day and relaxing in the evenings.

Ride plans include trips to Deal's Gap - The Tail of the Dragon, Blue Ridge Parkway and probably a few will head over the Smokey Mountains to Gatlinburg.

The Blue Ridge Motorcycle Camp ( has cabins with a queen bed or two twin beds. Reservations will be taken by the BRMC beginning March 1st. For those hardy guys, there is plenty of tent camping that does not require a reservation. The camp is geared for bikers and only bikes are allowed in the camp. They do have a place to unload your bike and park your vehicle.

This promises to be a great weekend and would welcome anyone that would like to join us. For more information contact Bill Martin
SMWSF05 - May 20-22 '05 (aka SabMag West Spring Fling, 2005)

This memorable event (and feast) will be at Pine Acres Resort, Pine Grove, California, May 20-22.

Pine Acres Resort has plenty of campsites but only a few rooms, so if ya want a room ya should grab one early. Seems last year's room with two beds w/kitchenette was about $42/night. Last years' route had some stunning Lake Tahoe vistas, so bring those cameras.

Contact Ron E. if you want more details or go here
SME 10.0 June 3-5, 2005 at the KOA Campgrounds in Tellico Plains, TN

Please note that this date does *not* directly conflict with any major, known holiday. If it conflicts with National June Bug Day or some other obscure observance, tough.

Central location is at the KOA Kampgrounds in Tellico Plains, TN.

They have cabins furnished with mattresses, tent and RV sites, showers & bathrooms, pool, and horseshoe pits. I believe all sites have water and electricity. Anyone getting a cabin can also rent bedding if they don't want to lug their own.

Other accomodations include Cherokee Campground, several fully furnished cabins (besides Caney Creek!) less than a mile away, and some bed & breakfasts in Tellico Plains. The next town over (about 15 min), offers a full service hotel. I'll get together all of the lodging info I can find and post it in a week or three. I might even get energetic and put up a webpage for it.

Plans at this point are for riding, telling lies, and massive amounts of smoked pork barbecue with fixins' added to the mix Saturday night. Might do a beef brisket and some chickens, too, depending on what kind of feedback I get from folks when I ask for it.

Email Lori Hunt for information and details. Accomodation information can be found here.

Meeting of the Magnas 2005 - June 5th - 12th, 2005 - Eureka Springs, Arkansas

A rally that the magna Riders Association, Magna Owners of Texas and the Super Magna Owners Group are planning for next year. We are calling it the Meeting of the Magnas 2005 ( ). The dates for the event are from June 5th 2005 to June 12th 2005 and it will be held in Eureka Springs Arkansas. There will be plenty of riding drooling over bikes and whatever else we can come up with.

Contact: Kevin Reinhold for information and details.
SABMALIBU - July 14-17, 2005 - Malibu, California

Announcing the first SabMag National Event in Malibu, CA. The dates are July 14-17. We have reserved 3 campsites at Leo Carrillo State Park, which can hold a total of 24 campers according to their website. We can park a bunch of motorcycles both at the sites and in the overflow parking lot. One of the sites is reserved for a 24 foot RV which Maggot George Kelly will be able to bring with him if he attends.

July 14 is a Thursday. I added that day for early arrivals and for a day to set up the campsites with firewood. Check in time is 2:00pm so I will be there to select 3 attractive and adjacent sites. I have a reservation, but site selection is first come first served.

So the big first steps have been taken. I hope you all can find a way to get here. It will be memorable. I am especially challenging the East Coasters to get here one way or the other. Did I mention that you can hear the Pacific from the campsite? The beach is a couple of hundred feet away from some really great sites. Those are the ones I will be trying to get.

Happy New Year to all, and see you in Malibu.

Contact: Milt or Ken T. for more info.
