New to this 4m, and very first rally for me at age 36, second year owner of a 02 r1150rt, and when I heard of the Peak of America tour that was going to be done, I knew this was going to be great.
I will have spent so far over couple thousand dollars and lots of time away from my business doing this tour, and when I got my pin I was very excited and when I saw a high mileage award it was a no brainier that some old timer would get it, but I knew based on the reading of the information on the peak tour that the ones who did the tour would get recognized in the closing ceremonies, as I was sitting their in the stands I could not believe the individual who gave the high mileage award away did not take the time to recognize the ONLY 125 or so people that was able to do the tour.
You would think that if you advertise and hype up the peak tour you would at lease have the ones who did do the tour as little as their was to be able to do it, and have them stand and be recognized by it.
To take the time and recognize the ones who attended based on age or mileage you name it, they should of done so for the 125 or so that did the Peak Tour.
Dont get me wrong, what I did myself, solo at that, I will never forget.
But I do know I dont need to pay a yearly fee to MOA and be apart of an organization that cant even take the time to recognize the ones who took 3 plus weeks, money, time away from family, time from work, to do a """""""ONCE IN A LIFETIME HYPED UP TRY AND GET PEOPLE TO MORE RALLYS TO GET YOU TO SPEND MONEY"""""
If all they said in the advertisement to this peak tour was to just get a pin, and that is it, then I would be ok with it, but go read exactly what was advertised on the Peak tour page, and you tell me if they recognized the 125 souls at closing ceremonies, all they said was the ones who where walking around with a pin.
Please anyone please feel free to help me understand why they take the time to recognize a 5 year old who rode in with there father to the rally, call her by name, and not take the time to recognize 125 people not by name, but just have us stand up who where wearing a pin and be recognized.
DONT GET IT.
IN A YEAR OR SO FROM NOW WILL ANYONE REALLY KNOW WHAT THE PEAK OF AMERICA TOUR WAS ABOUT, I DONT THINK ANYONE WILL.
REMEMBER IT WAS A ONCE IN A LIFETIME DEAL, RIGHT.
