Arrived at the Un on Thursday morning 12:30am. Nice to see four friendly faces around the picnic table at that late hour.

5 hrs later followed Al to Redmond--he had touble staying in his lane. Couple of close calls.

Home from Redmond via Top of the Rockies rally late Sunday. Nice riding with you AL.

See you all at Fall Torrey, maybe bring my better half.

Thanks for looking after Al (even if he thinks he didn't need it!)

Still on the road, spending a relaxing day in Ouray with Katherine after a gorgeous ride yesterday from Torrey. Should be home on Tuesday.

Late check-in. I figured I already checked in when I was at the UN so this was something I kinda skipped until I realizedů ooops!

So sorry to hear of the mishaps. Glad everyone is ok.

This was our first UN and it was most memorable & enjoyable. Thank you to all who made this event such a great success and us, welcomed.

We left Topaz on Thursday morning headed for Cedar City/Bryce Canyon via the southern route. We rode with Steve & Jen and split up at Cedar City where we forged on to stay the night at Bryce Canyon. The following morning, I had an hour at Sunrise Point. Simply stunning.
We then headed for Torrey and through Durango and home. This is the most fun I have had in a long time. Wonderful roads coupled with great people - most excellent!

How did we know we are in Oklahoma? Well it was straight and no longer just hot but plenty HUMID!

Got home Saturday @ 2115. Got up early Sunday and did chores. Karen left for Venezuela first thing Monday morning.

CHEERS!

Quick update - Bike back from the shop - $800.00 seals, tire and foot peg - I have got to get an Edmonton / Calgary Tech Day organized..........this seems a little crazy having to spend $109.00hr for someone to work on my bike - I took it in without any tupperware and did not get any credit..........Sheez!

Hopefully off to Bear Tooth pass this weekend and more training on corners........this time I will be less ageressive..
Again, love to all organizers of the UN look forward to seeing every one again and reading the hilarious posts of the group over the winter.

Tony, even at the price you paid, you got off very lucky! Minimal bike or personal damage. Enjoy Beartooth!!!

Tony,

Glad to hear the problems were small. All things considered, not such a bad bill to pay. Enjoy Beartooth.

Glad to see you and the bike are ready to go again!

Your comment about a Edmonton/Calgary Tech Day got me thinking. It might be to long a ride from DC for a tech day, however, we now have so many Canadan board members perhaps we should hold an UnRally or other BMWST event someplace in Canada. I would certainly try to attend! thumbsup

I guess we just need a volunteer to be the point person? I will chat with the local club and see if there are enough of us crazy canucks to offer our services.....perhaps in the Kootenay valley??
Great Idea - thanks all for the comments.

Well, I didn't make it back from the UN, because I didn't get there mad . What did make it back is a wonderful t-shirt signed by all of you with your good wishes. THANK YOU! It is touching... and it will be a reminder to be more careful because I don't want another one like it... smile

Before you ask, the foot is doing OK, thank you. No pain, walking mostly without the cane, won't get much better until I can get rid of the rigid sole sneaker I have to wear. Once it's gone, walk and ride. Right now I feel that without it I could ride tomorrow - yeah, but I'm not that stupid...
