The Pied Piper will be heading back east on the 11th taking a general northern route and we have to be home by September 18th. We don't have a hard and fast route or schedule (imagine that! ), but if any of you on a loose line between Shanksville, PA and San Diego, CA will be around for that week drop me a line and perhaps we'll see some of you on the flip side!

(cell: (six, one, 9) Nine, 3, 3--5, eight, three, 2)

About 25 of us lay-abouts are getting together tonight for dinner at Smokey's on the Gorge at 6:00, but I know most folks left today and will be home shortly if they're not already.

Be sure to post your check in's here so we can relax about what happened to you and know that you got home safely. Also, be sure to post at least a small Ride Tale about your adventures so we can enjoy it with you!!

We're having SUCH a fantastic time--it'll take me months to write it all up!

Of course, you meant to say that you'll be heading WEST... unless you're taking the REALLY long way home!

I'm so glad you guys are having such a great time. It's been fun keeping track of your travels. Maggie misses you - kind of; she & Hannah have become inseparable, and they wrestle & play like they're both a year old! Love to you both, and have a safe trip home...

Home sweet home.

Little rain on the way. Pounding down now here with lightning and possible tornadoes in places.

Great time was had by me.

Good to meet some faces to go with the names.

Thanks to everyone who made this happen.

Home again, It only took me 300 miles to get back home. Hats off to those that pounded the 1000+ miles to get there and thanks to those that made it all happen.

It's great to be able to put faces and smiles to the names on this board.

Hope everyone has a safe trip back home!!!

Got home yesterday at 4:30 pm. Spent most of my time today trying to get these photos up. Thanks to Killer and a lot of trial and error, I succeded!

I left at 6 am and got home on 2 tanks of gas, 635 miles, all on the interstates. I surprised myself at spending more than 5 hours non-stop riding on my stock saddle with an Alaska sheepskin pad. It hurt but I managed it.

I had a great time and it was great meeting so many of you. If you check the photos (the photo is a link), you can help me identify those I got wrong or could not remember. Hope to see many of you again soon.

Some great shots, thanks!

Some help I can offer:

"Big T and friends" is Christine Davis on the left and I believe that is Shannon on the right (never met Shannon, but from pix I've seen, and knowing that she and Christine are buds, I'm deducing!)

And "Don B" is actually Ron B, or "Raaaaan" as we affectionately call him!

Not home yet...Penelope and I decided to stop for the night at St. Augustine Beach rather than push the last 240 miles. Gonna get in the hot tub now after a walk on the beach. Had a great time and thanks to everyone who had anything to do with the Un. I'll let Penelope say her own piece since she told me not to use her handle

Jean and I are stopped in Chattanooga, TN after a 12 hour run. Took the scenic route south out of WV, "Blue Ridge Parkway", almost all the way to Ashville, NC. before heading for the slab. Very pretty and COOL (like 72 degrees). Saw one large doe.

Plan to make the rest of the trip tomorrow early.

Thanks to all who worked and gave so much to make the Un-Rally VI happen. I rode with some very experienced and thoughtful bikers.

I'm safely back in MD. Thanks to all for organizing such a great event. Thanks to the Va State LEO for only giving me a warning...

Dad is also safely back in GA. He was very happy that he managed to squeeze in a run down Deals Gap on the way home.

Both of us had great rides and enjoyed talking to both familiar and new folks!

Made it in about 8:30 p. m. Went via Appomattox Court House and the Booker T. Washington Memorial to get the stamps, totaling 522 miles. The route from Fayetteville to Appomattox was as good as Unroute 262. Running the twisties with a full load on the bike let me know how well it handles.

This was my first rally; and I had a wonderful time. Thanks to all who invested so much time and energy in getting it together.

Decided to take the slab, well that was the plan but I got board after an hour and took to the back roads!
605 miles in 12 hours.

Thanks Mark and Sylva for the great UNorganized event!

I finally got to meet a lot of great people from the board and now have some faces to go with the names!

Got in this evening about 7:00 cst. Ooops, I see that it's after midnight, so make that last evening.

All the UnRallys have been special, and this one measured up to the others in myriad ways. The carefully chosen venue was first rate, and the roads and scenery were spectacular. Many kudos and thanks to Mark, Sylva, Todd, Ken and all who worked so hard to make this event happen.

It goes without saying that seeing old friends is tonic for the soul. This year, I also had the pleasure of seeing some folks whom I haven't seen for 4 or 5 years. Robert First Shirt and Sun-Joo, Tim Beemr69 Cropley and Phil Fasterpill Mares, I'm glad that you all were able to make it this year.

It was also a treat to see so many new faces. I hope you all had a great time, and hope to see you all at future events.

Bobbybob & I rode to Seneca Rocks and spent the night in Lewisburg. On Friday, we rode "the twisties" on 16. There was very little traffic. To avoid rushhour traffic in Charlotte, we stopped on the Blue Ridge Parkway to take a break. Didn't get on the slab until we were on the outskirts of Charlotte.
Thanks to everyone for making this great event happen. It was so much fun to meet people from all over the country and England.

Safe, sound, and no special awards this trip. Arrived at 4-ish.

I echo what Raaan B said. Especially the PNW thing. Working on a fam trip to Redmond, Oregon while Seth and I slip away on a borrowed bike to wherever the UN will be...

Had to drive the car yesterday. Felt wrong. I miss everyone.

Cathy and I got in late last night after taking a few detours on the way back to NY. Thanks Mark and Sylva for putting everything together. Cathy was a little tentative about going to an event as a pillion with so many “internet riders”, but after meeting so many "really nice people" who made her feel very comfortable she is already talking about wanting to go to more BMWST events.

Really GREAT meeting everyone! Pics to come.

Howdy All! Made it to Nashville today about 12:30 p.m.

Thanks to all those who volunteered (or got volunteered) to chaperone Hoontang and me ... I'm certain everyone was better off for it!

As for me, I'll be curious to see what it takes to wipe the "perma-grin" off my face!

In!!

Straight run back (all slab"); uneventful except for a heavy rain squall that lasted all of 30 minutes!

Took longer to put on / take off the rain gear then the rain lasted!!

Hade a ball!! Again...

We are in at 3:36pm Saturday. Ran slab from Chattanooga, took 8 - 1/2 hours. Two rain showers, didn't even stop to put rain gear on, nice cool shower felt great after the 96 temps.

GT rocks, never stayed near any traffic, just buzzed up to the next group, man this thing is fun!!! 10 over with some spirited spurts, okay, lots of spurts!

P.S. The front tire is severely cupped, back is square - 6100 miles. Running 38 and 42 psi.

Inquiring minds want to know - did you remember your left from your right on the ride home from the airport? After spending almost a week in the states, I was a bit concerned about your 'riding on the correct side'!!

Especially after I had to lead you home after a few 'beverages' on Wednesday night .... pretty sure you couldn't remember which way to look when you were crossing the highway!

Great time meeting you - looking forward to it again soon

Gar and I made it to Troy,PA but only on one bike. My rear main seal decided to give way around Lock Haven, PA. Had it towed to Mechanicsburg (closest dealer) hopefully will be able to pick it up Tues. or Weds. Not to impressed with professionalism so far with this dealer but hopefully it will work out. Will be on our way around the end of this week. Have to be home by end of the month so no worries yet.

What a great time. So awesome.

Best of luck with the dealer......those jerks will never get one penny of my business again. Last year it took them 4 weeks (and constant reminder phone calls) to get me parts that they promised me in less than a week. I missed a whole month of riding because of their incompetence. Its a shame you couldn't get it to Trans-Am in Lititz, or Hermy's in Port Clinton.

Either way, I'm only down in York, PA (about 30-45 min from Mechanicsburg). If you need a hand or help with anything.....give me a ring (I'll PM you my cell #). I've got plenty of room to work and all the tools you could need to do just about anything.

Back safely to cooler climes. Was able to ride old favorite routes 39, 250 and 33 on a not too direct ride home.
A few Thank You's are in order:
Mark and Sylvia for all of their unefforts.
Fasterpill, Armando, and Woodie for good company on the way down.
Two Daves (Cantin and Sawyer) for the usual excellent daytripping.
Everyone else for being there.

Made it home yesterday afternoon but posted in the other thread, the "Made it home thread".
Had a wonderful time, great roads, fantastic people, and I'm hoping the Pied Piper tour will happen again next year because it looked like a blast too!
Thanks to all!

Home at 4:00 p.m. on Saturday after a grand total of 2,211 fun-filled miles for the week. My first Un and long-haul ride ever was tremendous. Thanks to all who pulled it together and to Tewks for leading the Northeast Express. Great to meet and to talk with so many with similar interests. I'll be back!

Made it home Sat afternoon after breaking the ride into two days. A welcome shower in Miss. helped cool things off, otherwise it was a hot ride both days. Thanks to all the organizers - this was a great un!!

Well, I just flew in from Nashville, and boy are my arms tired! (ba-bump-bump).

It was really great seeing you all, and the riding was fun, too. Thanks again to David for the generous loan of his bike and home.

When I left the UN I headed up to western Pa to see an old HS buddy in Greenville Pa. Monday morning I headed south spending the night in Jefferson NC at my brother-in-law's home after 10.5 hours in the saddle and 500 miles of mostly twisties. These M3's are awesome on dry pavement but are really scary in the wet! I left Jefferson this morning and arrived in Atlanta around 2 pm. Now I know what I was missing when I was gone...Wow its hot here! Thanks to Mark and the mother to be for a super job putting it all together. Mark it was a pleasure meeting you and riding with you!

Glad to be here too, my butt hurts! 6031 miles. I'm not doing another ride like this until I can sort out the seating problem, tried Russell, gel pad, sheepskin, Airhawk and every combination. This morning I was squirming after about 10 miles.

Home,

Left Saturday after lunch, and basically got home last night. Three and half day slog though the non-fun riding parts of the country and great riding too!

Ride tale to follow in a week or two...(or not )


Way too little time to meet enough people and enjoy the great area!

Sorry to anyone I didn't get to meet or spend time with!

What a great group of folks, even the east coasters

About a 7500 mile trip!

Great spot Mark and Silva, thanks again (to all involved) for all the hard work!

Just checking in..

In Marquette MI after some interesting days starting back around Niagra Falls where I ended up plugging a flat in the rain then replugging it then riding up to Budd's BMW in Oakville, ON on a sunday. They were closed but first thing monday they got a tire ordered for tuesday and worked on my blown fork seals and hired me a car for the day to go to toronto etc. Great service there at Budd's so if you're in the Toronto area definetly stop by. Well, if you have to but was another unexpected delay on the way to Banff.

Now I've got a dead zumo and some damn cold weather without any gerbings... Waiting a day here for a new zumo showing up tomorrow then going to figure out if i'll go to jasper/banff after all.. Flurries are falling in upper elevations around jasper as well.

So I'll either be picking up some gerbings on my way up and then hoping for decent weather or heading south, maybe towards yellowstone or even down to bryce/zion/torrey area again.

Oh and I narrowly avoided a "performance award" thanks to a friendly michigan state officer. Of course it was when I wasn't running the V1 due to just getting out of Canada.

So anyways still doing pretty well, but haven't taken many pictures recently.

Not home yet--just checking in. We're in Spirit Lake, Iowa tonight and heading for the Black Hills area tomorrow. We'll probably get to northern-central Colorado by the 15th, Utah by the 16th, Mesquite, NV on the 17th and home by the 18th.

There's a short update in the Pied Piper Ride Tale!

We're having an absolute blast and seeing the back roads of the heartland! Tomorrow's another long day and I'm going to bed!

Back home for a week now . My first night shift in 2 weeks . I have to say the roads up here that I thought were fun just aren't fun any more after riding through W.VA. Oh well it was great meeting everyone,still thinking what a great time I had . Looking forward to the next one .Although Pacific NW will probably have to be mostly done by air travel . Dave

Air races were bittersweet this year with 3 fatalities...
Rare Bear won the Gold Unlimited race, then experienced a stuck throttle (wide open of course). Plane had to circle until it ran out of gas (about 10 minutes after the race finished) then come in deadstick (gliding characteristics of a brick!) All OK.

We're finally home!!!

What a fantastic trip, UnRally and visits with great folks all along the route!

We got home a day early after getting a bit barn sour and blasting the almost 800 miles from SLC to San Diego in 12.5 hours. We logged a total of 7506 miles in 26 days on the road!

I was looking forward to having a few days to get caught up with stuff before going back to work after being gone for almost four weeks, but we just got in and the phone rings and I got called in for work tomorrow!

The Red Bull air races are in San Diego this weekend and I was already working 24's on the 20, 22, 24 and 26 (leaving for Torrey the morning of the 27! ) and was already planning on getting a few extra OT shifts over this weekend for coverage for the races (right off the coast of Coronado), but now I might be just staying there at work for the entire week!

Oh well, just call me Phil!

Welcome back! (Yes, I've been monitoring your progress...) You guys must be exhausted, so I'll wait til later in the day tomorrow to call Leslie. I'm not sure Maggie is going to want to go home - it's going to be lonely for her without her best friend Hannah!

I'm so glad you're home safe. Talk to you soon -

Phil,
Glad you're home. It was good to see you two yesterday. I kinda figured you'd just slab it. Admit it, sometimes it's just nice to sleep in your own bed...

See you in just over a week.

Richard may have something with this list thing!!!!

Let's see? Yep, that's TWO on it so far!!!

As soon as I figure out how to put structure turnout boots, pants, jacket, helmet, and gloves along with the same for wildland, along with uniforms, food, and toiletry gear on my bike as I play suitcase guy from station to station I will at least get to ride to/from work!

Where's that Rodney Dangerfield picture?

Maybe it's just the old guy down the street: "Hmm, Jacqueline... Let me think. Y'know, I think we used to have a woman named Jacqueline in the neighborhood. She liked to ride her motorcycle, and one day she just rode off and never came back. But that was years and years ago. I'm probably the only one in the neighborhood old enough to remember her. Come to think of it, you do look a little bit like her. But she'd be much older now, having been gone for so long.

Well I'm finally back as of yesterday... Was a great trip, Great seeing all the board people again and really glad I cut north up to Jasper/Banff even though it was a lot of 6c - 8c high, -2c - 0c low's up there in Canada. Also glad I picked up some Gerbing's at a HD dealer in St. Cloud.

I will be posting some select photos and a trip log plus the rest of my Canada photos in the next week or so, I'm now totally swamped at work.

Welcome home you stragglers!!

I guess we can unsticky this thread now. We'll leave this Forum up for a little bit for any other UnRally-VI Ride Tales that folks want to be included in this Forum when it gets archived shortly.

. . . but pretty soon we'll be opening up a NEW Forum for the NEXT UnRally-VII!!
