...no corporate sponsors, no beer garden, no music venue, no raffles/door prizes, no vintage bike displays, none of that. One big group meal to unite the masses, but other than that, the comingling is spontaneous. Expect to see people hanging out in the parking lot in the mornings, figuring out who to ride with and where to go - and in the afternoons/evenings, talking about that day's amazing ride, making dinner arrangements, or smoking big stinky ceegars and drinking preservatives.

Sorry to interrupt the banter with more expectation adjustments, but ...

Not all that many people have taken advantage of the additional T-Shirt purchasing option we set up in this thread. Previous experience shows that often many attendees want to buy extra T-shirts and/or want to buy a long sleeve (LS) version. There have been previous UNs where coordinators purchased extra shirts of common sizes and brought them to the UN to sell.

So, while we're discussing expectations I thought I should post a reminder here that additional T-shirts may only be purchased in advance. IOW there will be no additional T-Shirts on sale at the UN. The reason for this is to simplify the processes at the UN for the host team and to reduce financial burdens.

The following thread describes the various t-shirt options available for advance purchase and how to order them:


UnRally XVI 2017 - Additional T-Shirts Purchase Info.

Any T-shirts you order will be included in your swag bag that you pick-up at the Registration Table.

Dubious glances if your bike is too clean
Questions as to where you got that cool farkle
People trying to keep you up late with legendary tales

Cautionary Note:
You might make a new friend or two for life. It happens.


I find it rather refreshing, your quote really gets the spirit. None of the Airhead or it ain't a Beemer stuff, none of the snobbiness I see in some BMW groups. You probably rode your Beemer or other brand there. Which is what it is all about. Make friends here and show up on an Italian Mistress next time and no one cares you switched.
