A little birdie told me that we may be going waaaaay Upmarket next year. Rumor is that one of the UnOrganizers has an "in" at Biltmore cool and that Biltmore will now allow camping in the grounds and GSer's will be welcome to offroad.....!!!!

And they're gonna fill the pool in the basement and allow us in for a post ride dip daily!

Ooh, and the grand dining room will be pressed in to service once more.

But I have to get there and back, probably take longer than the time I would be there. Asheville is currently 83F with 65% humidity - right on the edge of voluntarily unbearable. The UN in West Virginia was utterly miserable.

Hmm, Cody, WY: 77F and 36%, that's more like it.

I guess you and I have different definitions of "miserable". 10 days ago 108 on the Klamath River Scenic Highway was close to, but not quite, miserable for me - and it was not dry heat. grin

I think it's pretty miserable in Torrey right now, 93F and 20%.

Anyway - please let's get back to the rumours.

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 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...

He's been here, we met at Daytona years ago for a Boxer Cup race.
He won the Monkey Butt powder prize I gave out at Mrio's during dinner.
Don't know if it helped him or not.

I agree, it porbably wiil be hot.
It moist (sic) likely will be humid.

So, forewarned makes it ez to prepare with the right gear and hydration.
Excellent roads to be found.

A personal call that each will make.
It was a long trip to this UN, for us.
But 100% happy we did it.

Hope the Left Coasters can make it.
By riding, trailering, flying and borrowing or renting.
Best wishes.

I still have the Monkey Butt powder container in my bathroom! It didn't help much but my real problem on that trip was the evil Day Long seat - worst thing I ever bought for a motorcycle (and I've bought a lot of junk).

I don't see myself venturing east of the Rockies in the summer ever again if I can avoid it, and I'm definitely a grumpy old man! I often say to Janet that I don't care if I ever leave the county again, maybe I'll include the neighbouring counties to be safe. And to prove it I'll head to Colorado tomorrow.

Day Long's hit me in the wrong spot too.

For folks who like beer and if Asheville is chosen, this city has the distinction of being one of the top microbrewery areas in the country. You'll have your choice of some really good beer that meets the requirements of finicky drinkers, I'm sure.

Maybe you can find an answer at the BRR if you use enough "beverage leverage" to loosen our tongues...

So that's it? I come to BRR, hang out and ply various people with liquid refreshment and maybe I find out about the Unrally?
I just maybe will get back on my bicicleta and join you then.

Worked out great for me! Went to the MOA after the UN and had a set of Ohlins put on the bike then headed up to Seattle.

I am flying back to Seattle next Wednesday to pick up the bike and will ride back via Glacier, Yosemite, Grand Tetons, Mt. Rushmore, Crazy Horse, up over Lake Michigan and Lake Erie through Canada to Niagara Falls then to a rally in Watkins Glen, NY before heading to DC. smile

Bob,
Just follow my bread crumb trail, If your trip is going to include a stop over in Duluth to visit the good folks at Aero stich. Heed this warning if you are traveling west on 2, GPS plotted route to veer off Rt.2 (65mph) on to Rt.191 (55mph) While traveling less than 200ft on said rd. the on coming undercover lit up as did my radar detector, leo quickly pulled over to right letting following traffic pass. Indicated was 67MPH I thought OK and continued on my way quickly realizing I had company he followed for about a mile or minute. Turned on the pull over lights I quickly pulled over, removed my gloves as quickly as possible placed them on my radar detector in hope to hide from enforcement.
officer: Do you know how fast you was going.
ME: Yes sir 65MPH
Officer: The speed limit on this road is 55mph, you were traveling 71mph license please.
ME: Sorry I did not see the sign (probabaly because I was paying attention to you abruptly swerving to the right) by any chance are you giving fellow civil Servants breaks today?
Officer: With a glaring look again he requested my license.

Ok with that said forty dollars for speeding eight-five dollars court cost and two dollars for paying with credit card. Hope insurance company never finds out. The strangest part of this whole episode was the effect it had on my throttle control for the next 48hr.

I know many folks got to do both. I'm committed to putting on the Chartered Club Leadership Summit on Wednesday. So I have to be there by at least Tuesday and then volunteer on registration on Thursday so it takes up UN time if they are the same week.

However, for the thousands of others who make the UN, it works out real well. grin
