You must not have been far behind me. I stopped for gas in Salina but continued north on US 50. It just started to rain as I was coming through Salina, but I managed to avoid it.


Made it home to LA. 644 miles yesterday, 520 today, 3070 for the week. Glad I was able to make it and meet everyone!

Bullett and Twisties arrived home about 7:15 Saturday, the 28th. Got the guest room ready for Ger and thawed some lime juice just in case there is interest in Margaritas. grin

Friday was Salida, CO back to Torrey, UT. Today I left Torrey at 0-dark and pulled into Ontario, OR (ID/OR border) at 4:15P. No rain, but the heat was disorienting and I made about 3 stops more than usual to bring body temp down. Probably could have made Pendleton, OR, but I'm truly fatigued and was starting to make mistakes on the bike.

I'll leave here early tomorrow and pull into Olympia, WA around 1PM (I gain an hour) if all goes to plan. HUGE thanks to Randy Rabalais (BeemerBoy) and his team for a truly flawless Un XI. Stories to follow.


Cary, Gleno, Rodger, Paul,
Godspeed, my brothers.

Left Gary in Beaver Utah with a bum transmission , he loaded the bike in a u-haul and Jan and Sharon are hosting him . I on the other hand rode on and just got out of the hot spring (104 ) and will have some dinner. Tomorrow I will ride Crater Lake than drop down to the coast and home.
What a wonderful few days with friends, also thanks to the UNorganizers


Happy, Joyous and Free

Got home safely tonight around 8 PM (three 700+ mile days).
Sorry to have missed Thursday dinner, but more urgent stuff at the home front required my departure. But I did detour to Creede,CO on my way out of Colorado and tasted some of those brats Fernando was raven about, good suggestion.
Overall a good 2 weeks on the bike (6200 miles), but way to much time spend above 100 degree's.
Thank you Randy for organizing and hosting the event, First class.

Was that your KTM sitting out front this morning? We left about 8:30 this morning, and mnTwin and his son were just going to breakfast. We saw Jan and Sharon off. Sorry we missed you all last evening.

In Green River, UT tonight, headed home. No rain!
