Who would in for a diesel poker run? Everyone has their bike poker runs and boat poker runs so why not a diesel one? Make the stops at Indiana diesel shops and it could be for all of the big 3. Good way to get out and cruise and meet some new faces. What do ya'll think?

Yea but its still 6 months away, summer diesel prices are usually cheaper since they don't put in the additive

:whs: Thats the spirit! We could make it for a charity and end it at a BBQ and sled pull or just a calm ending in a field with a bonfire and abunch of good diesel buddies. I like how one bike club in the area gave the riders more than enough time to go from stop to stop so you can relax and enjoy the ride and the scenery. There is some really good scenic driving here in Indiana and I'd love to spend a little money for a good cause and go out and cruise with some good friends. Its no different than spending your money in fuel and food driving all over for events like Scheids and TS. It'll probably be more laid back too.

Never been to either one of those so I don't know how those go down. I can imagine a diesel poker run would be the same as a motorcycle run except more revving and more intersections would be blacked out.

I don't think your crazy Dan, just getting people to any GTG is a real challenge.

I'm not saying it's a bad idea by any means Daniel. I wouldn't be down for it. Maybe a GTG but those are always almost impossible for me to get to most the time. Like the genius you quoted though, I don't want to be around ignorant people like him:doh:

Maybe it could be a diesel awareness run. Promoting diesels. Showing that we care more about things other than blowing smoke.

Here is what I pondered up today. We have a poker run for a charity like Riley's Children Hospital in Indy. End it there with a truck show for the kids? Possibly have a show-n-shine contest and the kids judge the winner. Just some ideas...

Well let's get something rolling then. What would you want to do, where would we go on the way there? Start in indy then loop around and come back? I think this would be alot of fun. especially seeing the kids faces and reactions to all the trucks.
