looks great to me, I would probably go to an UN based there.


You would have to break both my legs and my throttle hand to keep me from making that trip if an UN showed up there. thumbsup

It also has 3 hotels right next door. I would have to trailer (remember the Clampetts) but that looks great.

The Gunnison UN referenced a couple of posts above was my first. I didn't know enough to know that there was a split UN going on.

I had plenty of time at the campground to meet a lot of new folks, do some riding, story telling, beverage consuming.

It was so much fun I've been to a few more.

I was one of the few camping at this year's UN. Got kind of lonely when Bernie and Bob left the KOA to go to the hotel.

But I enjoyed the time spent with others and learned why it is called "Chasing Bernie"!

People change, their needs change and our perceptions change. As long as I get to spend some time socializing with folks, I don't much care where it is held. I will camp anywhere.

I haven't had too many Beemers, I just don't have enough time.

Is that a request? Just asking.

Hmmm...now that I'm retired, I don't have to whine anymore about having the UN in July.

I just hope some of the old timers come to the UN...you know, the group that loved to ride, hang out, laugh, and enjoy each others company. You know, back in the day before politics, divisiveness, and apathy caused those folks to stop coming. I miss those folks.

See you in 2014, wherever it is.

My point is pretty simple, .

I mean no disrespect toward anyone with my comments.


... and there we were starting a perfectly entertaining feud then along come some guy with reasoning. Come on Mark, get a grip.

I liked Topaz. Decent facility, good camping, great riding, reasonable prices, cost of California fuel out of sight, crazy tourist drivers around that big lake, etc. lets not dismiss it too soon.


Not to mention the gridlock and traffic involved in getting to the fancy liquor store in Gardnerville to buy a nice single malt or two. . . tongue wink

I've camped at Whitefish State park and been through Whitefish many times, daughter lives in Fernie, BC - not sure about riding in the area as I usually am just rolling through but certainly there is good riding in striking distance.
Whitefish itself is a pretty upscale town but again I have never really stopped there for any length of time.
I'll be going through again in a couple of weeks so if you all need or want some recon I could oblige.

It looks like Dave Swift is headed to Whitefish today with freshly rebuilt Ohlins. (Saw a post on FB)

Gonna check around with a few people to see if we want to try and entice you riding ladies and gentlemen to come back to the great state of AR-Kan-Sas for some squiggly roads, camping, moderately price motels,,, and some real fine eat'n. I don't know if you would consider us West or East, but do consider us a land of opportunity for a future Un. Thanks for the parameters of a bid. I have not been very active lately, but returning to two wheeling after being out for 772 days.
