Well, silly me ... I had such a great time I didn't take many photos, and those I did take I took at a low quality setting with my cheap little PnS camera. Doh! I did however capture a good bit of video with that same cheap little camera of my rides on Tues, Wed, and my ride home Thurs.

CLICK HERE to watch a video I put together of that Tuesday's ride with Matts_12GS, Foot (Alan), and Dan (BarelyOnBoard). Unfortunately I ddidn't catch any video of Dan as he wished to ride sweep all day.

I think this video unfortunately proves how much work I need in the riding department. Besides the numerous bad lines, what cracks me up are the curves I found myself in too high a gear, the bike rumbling as I throttle up! Oh well, the point of the video is to be entertaining and to hopefully communicate the fun we four had that day.

Please just view and do not disseminate in any way. Thank you.

HOME!!! Rolled in at 17:30ish yesterday.

10,300 amazing miles and right at a month on the road!

Barry and I had a great trip after, and the Un was outstanding!

We split about 15 miles from my place so I can't check in for him...

Thanks to all the hard work to pull of such a smooth and wonderful event to all those involved in making it look that way! I'm sure it was a lot of work and many bumps along the way in order to pull of something that worked so well!

Awesome people and a great place to Un! (Yes Un can be a verb!)


Richard
Where will U go next?

Whatever you do, LIVE!!!

I was hoping to find a way to thank them and I think this is it.


Robert,

Welcome to the board! That was me and I'm glad you found this place. I was at the dealer when they opened the next morning and a new rear tire was installed and I was road ready by 10:30...

See you on the road soon!

I'm back home too. Made it in at 6-ish last night but was too beat to fire up the computer and post. After 27 days together Richard and I are considering filing for domestic partner status. Sorry Jacqueline, the wedding's off.

What a great UN (my first) and I'm so glad I made it through all the miles and heat. What a fun group of crazies! I may have to do this again. Let me add my thanks to all of the people who obviously worked hard to make this UN such an enjoyable event. A special shout out to Chopped Liver!

Good to hear that you guys are back safe. Nothing like a month long dose of road therapy...

True!

However, it will be a VERY long time before a ride tale will be posted from me... I got THE wedding and then over 6000 pictures to sort though!!!

Amazing ride indeed!!!

Arrived home with Katherine at about 2:30 this afternoon after riding from Waterbury, Vermont. We spent three weeks on the road, taking the slow road home up the east coast after Little Switzerland. We hit Williamsburg VA, Annapolis MD, Beacon NY, Newport RI, Boston and finally Waterbury VT. Met a lot of interesting people, had great food and great wine. My clothes shrunk somehow, though. Time to do it all over again. The UnRally was great once again. Thanks again to all for the outstanding effort and results.
