Also, the woman I spoke with said there were several cancellations today so there are a few rooms available.


I don't think your excuse holds any water. There is a new dealer in Asheville, they can do your 600 mile service when your get to the UN and before you return home. What a few extra miles between friends. rofl

The bike will not explode if you go over 600 miles and don't have it serviced.

confused OMG....what I wouldn't give to be in your boots, with a new RT and the collective RT wisdom waiting for me at the UN. It's an opportunity to save yourself a bundle of cash.

. Yes, and if anyone would know about exploding bikes, it would be Ken. smile


If my calculations are correct, when this baby hits 88 miles per hour... you're gonna see some serious stuff...

What I would do: Get a appointment with the new Asheville dealer for a oil/filter change. Enjoy the UN/Blue Ridge and everything else. Ride home and get the rest of the service done.

I recently was faced with the same situation, so I changed my own oil/filter and when I got back my dealer did the rest.

Heck, bring the oil and filter...it'll give us something to do while we tell lies in the parking lot.

Believe me they can work miracles in the parking lot, especially after a beer or two!

I was in somewhat the same situation in 2006, new RT etc. I was musing aloud (online really) about whether I should break in the bike by riding to the UnRally in Gunnison, Colorado. Board members here convinced me that that was an outstanding idea, so I did indeed ride out. It was one of the better decisions I've made. I say go for it and just change the oil&filter and the final drive fluid when you're out there. I'd called the new dealer (Eurosports Asheville) and book an appointment for just those two things.

I nominate this as strangest reason ever for not going to an Unrally!


I agree. But you can hear all kinds of strang reasons for not doing something when the person really doesn't want to do it. I'm a firm beliver in "Where there's a will, there's a WAY!"
