It's only May Nando, you need to make it to Torrey in a couple weeks before getting packed for the Un

I may not have time for Spring Torrey. It's enough that I'm taking 10 days for the Un. The reasons are a little intertwined with the rules of this board.

As most of you know, members who have motorcycle-related businesses used to be only allowed a link on their signature line as well as a One Time Business Announcement along with new product updates every 6 months or so (on average). The new Vendor Forum made that obsolete, except for those of us on the Admin Team. As the owner, I've excluded myself and other Admin Team Members from the Vendor Forum. That decision was made so no one ever accuses anyone of taking advantage of our positions here. This board is about the members and about being fair and courteous. Therefore, I can't reveal too much just yet or I'll use up that One Time Announcement.

However, now that I'm retired, I've been working for the last 6 months on a new business to go along with the BMW Reflective Kits (as seen in my signature line) that we've been selling for the past 17 years. And it's taking a lot of work because there are installation videos that have to be made, and I'm not skilled at video making (yet), plus it's tough to video yourself. Fortunately, I have been working with a very generous board member and amateur videographer who also has a job, family, church, etc., so progress has been as rapid as all that allows. We make progress about every other weekend. That means Spring Torrey may not happen for me. I've told Michelle at the Chuckwagon about it, but have already booked a night's stay on my way to the Salida pre-Un festivities. So she, her husband and I will go to dinner that night and get caught up. And if all goes well, I'll be in the middle cabin at the Chuckwagon, along with Earplug Az Al, come Fall Torrey.

I hope to have an announcement on the new business, along with photos pricing and other details, in the next 4-6 weeks.

As for booking lodging on my way too/from the Un, remember that a lot of that area borders Yellowstone, and summer demand (there and everywhere) is high and gets booked early. In some towns, I got one of the last reasonably priced rooms. If people are going to the Un and haven't booked lodging for their to/from routes, I suggest they start looking at it now.

Do you have a MotoReflective Reflective Kit (Link) for the rear of your BMW?

It's a motorcycle board. Please don't say "crash."

Right on both counts! Very sore. I have kevlar thread holding my muscle together. 2 more weeks of the sling, then PT. 3 months sounds like an eternity at this point. Glad you were able to get back in the saddle so soon!

It will get better but is a real pain getting there. PT is what it takes. Good luck.
