Not quite sure what "sponsor" means in this context! Do you mean just to propose and then organize the ride, or do you mean something like a poker run where folks are expected to donate?
One possibility is what we would call the "Bike Shop Series". Each ride is to a dealership out of town (e.g., HondaSuzuki of Sanford, which is a great ride down 42). We could then scope out bikes at the dealership. One thought is to ask the dealership if they would organize donuts and coffee for our group. We could each chip in $5 for the cost and any left over goes to charity. Or some such. The organizer would have the responsibility to liaise with the shop and promote the ride.
I hope you guys will make the Meltdown Vintage Motorcycle Show. Saturday, April 25 @ 12pm @ the Southern Appalachian Brewery in Hendersonville, NC.
There's an open invite to DTT members to camp at my place Friday through Sunday. I have plenty of area to have bikes and vehicles, camp, etc.
My place is about 30 minutes from the brewery- a nice ride, too.
I provide dinner Friday night, breakfast and dinner Saturday, and breakfast Sunday. There will be a selection of craft beer, but we ask that anyone partaking also bring some brews to share.
Rsvp is requested. If anyone wishes to throw a few bucks our way, it's very appreciated, as it is a rather expensive weekend to host.
I think that covers the important stuff. Y'all come and have some beer, bikes, and bonfire fun!
