The UN in WV was during an unseasonably hot September. It was 10 to 20 degrees hotter than usual. That can happen most places in the US.

And riding crosscountry during July and/or August is almost always hot most places. Aside from holding the UNs in May/June or Sept/Oct, I don't see how to avoid that. Then one has to worry about snow at altitude!

What's a ride planner to do?

There's probably nothing to be done, I simply said I was out. Personally I would prefer that we had all the Un's either at Gunnison or even better Cody, yes the eastern contingent would have to cross the plains but at least they would be pretty sure of pleasant weather when they arrived.

Let me first say that this is a proposal, and definitely not a volunteer to run it thing, but I'm sure there's a large enough motorhome and cargo trailer to haul all of us wimps and our bikes to the Un all "party bus" like.

Just a thought.

If I'm going, I'll probably fly in with Gabby.

Tom, if you do come plan on a night or 2 in atlanta if possible. If you fly east there is no way to avoid atlanta. I may even have a spare bike for you to ride.

I'm in Lake Lure area just south of Asheville and the temperature difference is noticeable. Rafted the French Broad 2 weeks ago and it was wonderful. Mountain Biked Bent Creek in Asheville just off the Blue Ridge Parkway and it was very bearable. Much cooler at the higher elevation in Asheville and the things to do in Asheville including great restaurants is a winner.
I'm in for this one.

P.S. Having lived in Utah for 25 years, the idea of going to Cody is a non-starter unless I wanted to get a new hair part and wanted to practice 45 degree motorcycle riding in the wind.

I heard a rumo(u)r that Killer doesn't really ride much anywhere anymore, since it's usually not perfect weather most anywhere near to (or far from) his house most of the year . . . . dopeslap

I don't need to ride much any more because I'm already where I want to go. Nevertheless, 8 day trip to Colorado on the RT coming up...

I sure hope the BMW Demo truck is still coming.
