When Will Reece bought a Yamaha 1300 Tourer motorcycle six years ago, he did not know much about it. So, he did what a lot of other people do when they need answers—he took to the Internet, creating a website where other people could discuss that type of motorcycle.
Now, the web-based 1300 Tourer motorcycle group boasts 5,000 members worldwide. In order to connect with some of those far-reaching members, the group plans a reunion every summer, and meets at a voted-upon destination. Past meet and greets have taken place in Arkansas, Tennessee, Colorado, New York and, last year, Yellowstone National Park. This year, following a suggestion from some of its Iowa members, the group voted to meet in Prairie du Chien.
