My local BMW guy sent me this, it is based in Texas mostly, but one of you big milers could make a national one pretty easy I bet!

How is a UNlocation selected?

You know how a new Pope is selected? Well that process is simpler and more public!

How a UN location is selected is a lot like how the oil level in a boxer is reliably checked - it's one of the great mysteries of the universe!


White smoke = east coast; black smoke = west coast. Unless we're talking about synthetic oil, then . . . .

Since we alternate east and west each year, it's a pretty safe bet that it will be in the east in 2009. Where in the east is another question. I wouldn't bet on Florida; sorry Tender Browns. Virginia/West Virginia are probably out, too, since they were the last two eastern UnRallys. The Georgia/Tennessee/North Carolina meeting point could be a possibility. The Northeast is also a strong possibility, since that is an eastern region that we have not even been close to for an UnRally - maybe around Upstate New York, Vermont, or New Hampshire. That also gives folks the opportunity to head up to Maine and the Maritime Provinces for some sweet riding and sightseeing. Fall would be a great time in the Northeast, but it is much more crowded, and may be difficult for many people in the west to travel. Decisions, decisions.

If the next UN ends up south of me, I'll probably just see everyone there. If it ends up to the north of me......I'm IN

The suspense is killing me......how long do we have to wait?

Jamie,

I wish I had the Inclination, Time, and/or skills to put together the UnRally.

I think I would make the Pied Piper Tour itself, the actual Unrally.

I've often daydreamed of putting together a roving Rally, something akin to the Hot Rod Magazine's Power Tour.

The UnRally would be in a different town each night.

Start on one side of the Country on Day One and run to the other side for the end of the Rally. Or a partial run of the country anyway.

Cool huh?
