Sue and I caravanned most of the way home yesterday, but somehow got separated in Kramer Jct. However, we spoke on the phone and she made it home at 5:45 and I was home at 5.

Holy cow it was hot in my UNairconditioned jeep yesterday! Jeep was so fun and great for the first part of the journey, but once we dropped down in elevation...dang! Lady said it was 107 in Kramer Jct (near Victorville). I was dousing myself in water just as if I was on the bike, and wishing I had my hoon cooler! SOOOOOO happy to see the rain on the way home! Made it much cooler. Could have done without the lightning strikes causing brush fires though!

So good to see you all again. Fernando, I missed you before you left. Sorry we didn't get to yap more.

Howard, how was Kit-kat? wink

Back in the bay area after riding over the sonora pass. That was a thrill/seeing the sand in the first gear turn! Enjoyed coffee at the Bovine Bakery in Point Reyes this am. grin

At the MOa rally myself. Got here yesterday about 5:00PM. Looking for EffBee at the Gerbings booth but so far haven't seen him. I've run into several BMWST folks here already, in fact, one (Bells?) is sitting next to me here at the Cyber Cafe.
I was told to watch my speed in Oregon but a local blew past me in a Dodge Ram and I sped up to pace him. I guess he didn't like that and we spent several miles at near and above triple digits. That gets the blood pumping. I slowed down before he did and he left me in his dust. The GPS and my speedo are several mph different.

Got to the MOA in Redmond yesterdayat 4:00 after a warm 10 hr. ride. We rode most of the way with Ken and Kate (from Chicago) who are also at the Rally on their way to Alaska. Ray (from NY) is camping right along side our group from the River City Beemers. Just bumped into Wade (from WA) too.

We're celebrating Janet's birthday tonight. (It's the 39th anniversary of her 21st birthday.) laugh Sunday we head to Glacier on our way to Jasper NP, Canada.

We had a blast doing the UN and look forward to seeing you all again soon! wave

Laney and I got home about 1:00 pm on Friday.Where did ya'll go? It was real quiet around Topaz Lake yesterday afternoon.

I talked with Endobobdds this morning. Sierra BMW had the needed slave cylinder for his RS. They had him back on the road about 2:00 pm Thursday. He got to the MOA about 8:30 that night.

Boney: I'm not sure how to apply this to a motorcycle, but while living in Alaska I learned to put the winch on the back of the truck so I could get out of where I shouldn't be...

I arrived home at 1:00 MST. I'd considered doing a marathon run to get back home but after a long, hot ride Grand Junction, CO, looked awful good. The second leg of the trip was uneventful with the exception of running into not one but two CHP radar traps just twenty minutes from home.

Many thanks to the tireless UN organizers for yet another job incredibly well done! thumbsup
