Are there any clubs for people that RV, and take their motorcycles when they go camping? I like to camp in our TT, and ride my bike during the day, and would be interested in meeting other people with the same interest.

Same here. I take my TC and bike on a trailer behind it but I go to bike specific meets. Not camping trips with folks with bikes. That would be nice.

I just find Motorcycle events I would like to attend, then I find campsites near by. Plenty of other bikers doing the same thing. I have friends that enjoy biking and camping so I am planning future trips to explore different areas of Florida.

Plenty of folks do both. I full time, and one of the requirements I had was a toyhauler so I could take the bike with me easily. I have not heard of any clubs that do this specifically, but folks usually figure it out in the CG when they see my Harley parked outside my TH.

Motorcycling is how I got into RVing. I bought my motorcycle about a yr before I got my toy hauler. After purchasing my bike I found I just didn't enjoy riding in the city. I went through the thought process of the best way to take the bike to good riding areas and decided that a toy hauler and adding camping as part of my interests made the most sense.

Here's how I do it. I go to motorcycleroads.us and look for good roads in close by areas or close states. The roads are rated by riders and others, and are color indicated to show what type of riding the roads offer. Once I find a place I want to ride, I go to rvparkreviews.com and see what's in the area and check out the reviews.

I've had my TH now since January and have done the Texas Hill Country and SW Colorado, north of Durango. I left my TH at the campgroung for two months when in the Hill Country, and went there three time through that period (three full wks), and am going back late Sept when it cools down. I enjoyed the Hill Country riding more that Colorado, as there was much less traffic and it was very motorcycle friendly. Lots of places in these small towns cater to motorcyclists and lots of bikes there on the weekends. Many friendly people to meet and ride with.

If anyone is looking to go somewhere around that time, we will be at the Hill Country Resort and Event Center (http://rvtexasresort.com/), about 6 miles north of Medina. Check out the three sisters on the motorcycleroads.us website, Ranch Roads 335, 336, 337. 337 goes west from Medina, so great riding is right out the campground entrance.

2X There are many motorcycle events all over the USA and getting there in your RV is half the fun. I use internet sites to find the events and plan my trips. Being stuck in FL for the summer I just go up to Larry's neck of the woods to Peggy's corral on Sundays. Here are a couple of good event sites:

I've only been to Peggy's once.
Have you ever ridden in the Arcadia area, Open Road, Limestone and Tillies are some of my favorites.
I also have a great County Campground outside Arcadia called Brownville Park.
$25.00/night on the Peace River.
I'm booked once a month for the next 8 months.

I think you might want to do what I am thinking of. I have been in a motorcycle club for 20 years. I grow tired of the various bike weeks, to many bikes, and to many cops pulling folks over for nearly anything. I am going fulltime in a few months, of course my bike will go with me. I want to travel to great roads to ride on and see all the wonderful sights around the country. Would be nice to meet people with the same interest, share a beer around the campfire. RVing Riders on Delphi Forums seems like a good place. I have looked at Escapees (may join) they will start a group if there is enough interest. If you start a group I would be interested in signing on, not a club though.

We are going to take the travel trailer, with the bike in the pickup, and go to Tn. near Va. this Oct. and do some riding...in hopes the fall colors will be there, is anyone interested in joining us?

If so our plan is to be at the "Rocky Top RV Park" in Blountville, Tn http://www.rockytopcampground.com/ checking in Oct. 15 until Oct. 19...We have stayed here before, and this is a very good park..

Love to ride in the mountains, we just returned from Georgia mountains around Blairsville. I would like to join in but we have plans set already to start moving south in October. I know not as nice as the color show in the mountains, but we like the sand too especially where it's warm.
