Bennington Bash
« on: April 08, 2014, 05:56:10 pm »
Are any of you Trophy owners in the US going to attend the Bennington Bash in Vermont? I've not been there before but I understand it to be a good time.

Hope to see some of you there.
My mother asked what I wanted to be when I grew up. I said "a biker". She said I'd have to choose one or the other.

It's not too late and the long range forecast is starting to look pretty good.

I got back a few hours ago and I'm pretty tired. It was about 375 miles to get there and 350 to get back, (different routes). Yesterday we did a 165 mile ride so close to 900 miles over three days. It's hard to say how many people attended the Bash as there was never a time when everyone was together at one time. At the dinner last night there were eleven tables that sat 8, however they weren't all full. I'd say 80 attended the dinner but few is any who camped came into town in the evening. So maybe 100 over all, hard to say for sure.
The event consisted of in decreasing order of importance: riding, drinking and eating. There was a spirited ride from Bennington to Brattleboro for a BBQ on Friday evening. The throng split up into smaller groups for rides on Saturday. The "Banquet" last night was a the Mt Anthony Country Club with great food and drink.
As for Trophys, two new ones and a few older ones. The event was dominated by Bonnevilles and Tigers. There were a few Japanese bikes and I even say a German Trophy knock-off (R1200RT). All in all great time.
Not quite sure how to send photos. If I can figure it out, I'll put a few up.
