The Defective Gene Pool will host its' 9th Annual Meeting (Ride to Eat style) Saturday, February 22nd, 2020 at Big Ray's Bar-B-Que in Allen, Texas. We'll begin gathering around 10:00am and hit the doors at 11:00 when they open for business.


The "Pool" was formed by a few past IBR finishers to give Long Distance motorcycle riders and potential LD riders an opportunity to swap lies, renew old acquaintances, encourage new participants to the sport, and generally to celebrate the defective gene that runs common to us all. Other less notable pursuits may ensue. Projected attendees include several past IBR finishers and a host of LD riders with significant rally and IBA ride experience. All riders and all bike brands are welcome. If you feel you have the "defective gene" that causes this madness or you just like to gawk at weird people, please join us for this enlightening gathering.
