This was my first UN, and what a great experience it was! The depth and detail of resources and information provided prior to the event that covered every possible activity known to the universe left no stone unturned. The routes and Rock n Roll Theme went together well and the riding was exceptional - in fact, as I sat on my sofa yesterday, my mind had drifted (as it does) and was reliving the scenic mornings and exceptional riding of the UN. [Could one ever grow tired of this routine?] The registration was simple and the web interface worked well. The opening social, shirts, goodie bags and group dinner all went without a hitch.

Thank you for the many, many, many and many more hours of preparation, research, organizing and planning that went into ensuring the rest of us had as carefree visit as possible!

Thursday Morning, I found my bike had picked up a passenger, and what with the Rock n Roll theme of the UN, felt inspired to write modify this little ditty.

Ehh...it needs a little work . .

Thanks one and all for a great job! clap clap

I left Fontana Thursday morning and was expecting to stop in Arkansas
that night but saw the forecast and decided to just blast on to Oklahoma.
Only 850 miles in 13 1/2 hrs. Boy do the locals drive fast in AR !!!
I paced several at over 100 mph on I 40 for long periods of time. Always good to have a "rabbit" out front. grin
What a perfect 4 days of riding. The UN organizers really are a special
group and I tip my helmet to ya"ll. clap clap clap
Bike is cleaned up and ready for another UN. Torrey maybe???

Thanks for all the accolades folks, this was a great time and a wonderful venue. Those who came out to Fontana got quite a treat. Those who didn't will live vicariously through YOUR ride tales so lay it on thick!!!

To paraphrase the Outlaws' song...

We organizers are just the players, YOU are the show.

Thank you all for making it as great as it was.

Still on our way home ... but wanted to say thank you to you all for the kind words. It truly was our pleasure. So many people offered help and the offers were much appreaciated, but any work that organizing an UN takes generally ends the day the organizer(s) arrive(s). After that the group simply creates the UN.

Looking forward to seeing posts and pics from others. Terri and I will post after we get home from our little detour.
