As the first person to correctly guess the site of UNrally VI as being in Fayetteville, WV, it is my obligation to start a "Guess the site of UNrally VII" thread. Suppposedly it is in the Pacific Northwest....soooo....my guess is ....Winthrop, WA

Actually, it wouldn't be fair for me to play since we selected the people to run the next UnRally some time ago, but Kingman, AZ in August sounds about as good as anyplace.

Don't forget Starbuck, WA.

My actual guess is Pullman, WA or Lewiston, ID. (Yeah, I can count, that's two. But they're close.)

Yeah, except for the fact that the roads there may leave something to be desired...

(I took that on my last trip down there. Not the greatest pic, but you get the point. It had just happened the night before. So we had to go inland and go across stuff like this)

Remember, we're talking about the guy who rides an RT like a dirt bike!!

I don't know what the un rally is all about, but if any one needs any ideas on routs. I know this area. Check out (The Best of PNW June) trip we did this summer.

This is definitely being taken into consideration. As far as when the date and place will be revealed, it won't be today. However, Sullivan Lake Road out of Metaline Falls, WA looks like fun. Maybe we'll be there? Of course, I think that's a dirt road...

How about having it the last week in June and either Eureka Springs, Arkansas; the Great Lakes Region (anywhere); Branson, Missouri. Eureka and Branson both have their fair share of twisties and actually are not too far apart, so it is easy to take them both in and ride until you drop. It is somewhat central in the US and easily accessable for those who can't take long periods off to treck across the US and back and try to enjoy the UN. May have more folks able to participate if it is easily accessed. Just my .02.

Thanks for the suggestions Sheila. A moderator will probably beat me to this, but the Un gets moved around year to year. Some times East, Central or West. If you look at the Un forums of olde, you'll see that the distribution has gone Colorado, Arkansas (Eureka Spgs), Wyoming, Virginia, Colorado and this year, West Virginia. So it's due to head back West. Part of the location is determined by whomever is foolish enough to step forward and UnOrganize it. I think I must have been drunk when I approached Leslie the last time it was in Gunnison. So basically the location has been brewing for some time. Ultimately it's the admin/moderator's decision who to stick in the hot seat and I guess I won/lost. All of the places you mentioned are nice and all, but I'm really a wuss and don't want to ride my new thumper that far. I think my butt will fall off.

So keep an eye on the Ride Planning forum and in the next month or so dates and locations will be announced.

Stay tuned...

In 08 it is going to be on the west coast in fairness to all of the west coast members who have traveled thousands of miles for the other UN's. IMO it's a fair and reasonable idea since Gunnison has been the furtherest west for any UN.

But the Pied Piper run from the east coast to the NW should be a hoot. Hope you can join up.

Stay tuned...




Only on BMWST would a non-BMW rider be the UN-organizer.

An early thank you to Dog Dancer for accepting the challenge. I already know what a great RT/GS rider he is and am sure that he will have a UN that will be remembered for a long time.

Hey, and it will be my first UN, so it had d**m well better be memorable! But no pressure, right.


Thanks for taking it on!

We have never ridden in the PNW and are looking forward to seeing the place. I'm already planning the route through Banff/Kootenay and I don't even know where I'm headed yet.

Hey, I've ridden around Missoula and Glacier a few times already. Nothing wrong with it, but I want it farther West! I've not ridden in Oregon and except for a flash ride - part of it with the bike on Pilgrim's trailer - not in Washington.

I think it might be cool, and helpful, to have the UnRally each year at one of the official four corners cities: Blaine, Madawaska, San Ysidro, Key West.

In order to identify the best possible location for the next Un-rally I have taken the most commen and universal language (see movie contact) approach. As Jody Foster has informed us, mathematics is the UNIVERSAL language

So first we must define our two most west coast and east coast points. Based upon exhaustive dart throwing, San Francisco is our west point and Virginia Beach is our East point.

The two “EAST coast venues have been Staunton, VA, and Fayetteville WV. With Staunton, VA as the most eastern venue.

Taking our most Eastern starting point, Virginia Beach, and calculating the mileage to Staunton, VA we see that Staunton, VA is about 215 miles in-land from the East Coast.

Therefore we now have our first reference point. The West Coast location must be 215 miles inland from the West Coast reference point.

Now we must determine our North / South variance. So once again taking darts in hand, we find our Northern point of Pembina, ND, and our Southern point, Corpus Christi, Tx . From those two points we find that Staunton, VA is about 750 miles South.

So with this very accurate set of calculations, we can now determine the exact point of our next Un-Rally.

We will precede 215 miles in-land from San Francisco, and 750 miles South from Pembina, ND and that will be the precise location of our next Un Rally.

Finally we need to make sure the pied piper tour has approximately the same travel distance. So taking the pied piper from San Francisco to Staunton, VA we see we have approximately 2,650 miles. Now taking the East Coast Pied Piper tour from Virginia Beach, VA approximately 2,650 miles we arrive at

While there's no shortage of good riding near Lee Vining, when I was there last May, premium gas was $3.99 a gallon! And the dining options are rather limited.

Please do not question Jodie Foster's knowledge about UNIVERSAL language. The Un Rally will be in Lee Vining, CA, because the MATHMATICS tells us it will be there.

Forget about Lee Vining and mathematics (don't forget Jodie Foster). This method might work for a planned organized systematic approach but not for the UNpredictable UNrally. Steve, you have free choice - as long as it is not all dirt roads. Just don't forget Jodie Foster

As it was when I was there last September (2006). Gas is MUCH cheaper in the park, but I didn't find that out until after I got gas - which is apparently a common mistake.

And I don't know what you're talking about with respect to the dining. They had both soggy sandwiches and hotdogs in the gas station.

And as to Bend:

Yeah, then we can all ride Hwy 95

Ok, I better understand how the attept is made to move this event around. What about the idea of having the event to the last week in June. For those ladies who ride, WOW does their ride the first week in July and it might be great to go from one event to the other.

I can see we need some more "factual" information.
Prior Unrally sites
North of the West / East line, Gunnison, Cody, Gunnison
South of the West / East line, Eureka springs.

therefore the Northern locations have a 3-1 edge over the southern locations.

Therefore logic and fairness dictate that this years rally must be 215 miles off the west coast, but it must also be either on the West / East line, or below it.

Once again we all know, Jodie Foster is always correct, and logic will always give the best solution. Therefore as noted earlier, give into the force

That's 3,076 mi – about 1 day 23 hours according to Google Maps.

Hmmm...w/ a Pied Piper route and return, that means roughly 12,000 miles round trip. That's a lot of time off work!



Hey...there's like not enough room for more than two rides on that, that, ISLAND!

Is someone pulling my leg????

According to Google maps: 2,630 mi – about 2 days 5 hours for me (avoiding highways)

Then again, I do have a brother in Seattle with a spare R11 I might be able to borrow!!

(Is that considered cheating?? )

If we could work out something like the week after the Chief Joseph Rally in John Day, Oregon, then PNW, that might make for a great 10 day to 2 week ride.

Chief Joseph is usually held in mid June.
