the bike run today out of warren had to be the absolute worst dice/bike run i have ever been on!!!! went last year and had a great time and after this year sad to say i will never attend anything put together by that group of people EVER again what a joke it was! then they had these young kids (whom i think were in costume to look like vets) and volunteers actually yelling at these people who supported the run and rode in the wet/cold weather all day! they had no veteran clubs on the run no legible map to help out the out of towners, they weren't initializing the scores, no food at any stops the last two stops you couldn't even roll at because they got lazy and left, there were tornado warnings and nobody called the stops to let the riders know ( not everyone like seniors have internet on their phones) they never announced the 50/50 in the am purposely so people had to come to the joke gathering after also why i think you had to do your last two rolls there because no one was planning to come back and they knew it!!!!
i was lied to and told the main man didn't have a cell to reach him on!!!! come on really??? but yet we should have had internet to look up weather and were even called irresponsible for not having it!!! yea some blonde bimbo volunteer had the nerve (probably pocketing some cash so had to have some bull excuse for their horrible organization skills!!!!!)
and they raised the price since last year since they knew half the people wouldn't be back after changing the departure time after we were all ready to leave last year, i really think i could have set up a better run in 3 days then they did in 8 mos.
also was told it took the girl that won the bike last yr a whopping 11 mos to actually get the bike without a title to register it and it didn't even run! are you kidding me????? so this Castro guy better pat himself on the back for ruining a good thing for the community and ripping and pissing A LOT OF PEOPLE OFF!!!!!!
i really think the local paper should put this in there Monday edition headlining Dam run a huge bust and not due to the weather!!!!!! many riders left upset with no plans to return next year.
and just think how much money that brought into the town if only for a day last year was 500 bike most with two riders (shopping, eating, staying a cpl days, drinking, fueling up) a lot of local money could be brought in.
very disappointed rider
