@Dakrider We've looked into this in the past and happy this idea is getting more life. Below are answers to your questions:

When in the spring or fall of 2020 would be a good time to do an AT rally?
Later Summer or early fall would be best.

How many days/miles can you do?
Depends on the group and can be flexible. Maybe 150-300 miles a day.

How do you feel about doing on/off road riding?
Yes to both but would need an easy route off road for newer riders too.

What is your riding capability?
Not pro but also not a beginner.

Would you be interested in training seminars on/off road?
Yes. Would be beneficial for all.

Would you want to do camping, cabins or luxury hotels?
Depends on the group but can do all three.

What kind of attractions would you be interested in?
Beautiful scenic rides.

Would you want this event to be catered or BYO?
BYO is fine.

Would you or someone be interested in co-hosting this event with us?
We would be interested.

We know we have riders from all over the US and the world on these social media pages and wanted to see if they have favorite on/off-road routes you could share with us.
We are looking to host this African Twin only rally in the North East parts of the US, like PA, MD, NY.

I attended in 2020 and was sorry to hear of cancellation for 2021. If there are any dates set for 2022 count me in!
