    Scorebooks go out tomorrow.

    120 riders have signed up.

    If you don't have a scorebook by the end of the day on Sunday, July 7, post here please, or send me a PM with your name, email and mobile phone number.

    Post here to say where you're starting from... it's worth some GS BS points.

    Ok, Ian, I have been patiently watching and waiting, so now you have called me out. I will see you in Salem and be helping out there, as we have discussed. But to answer your challenge, I will be leaving Houston, TX on Wed, July 10th, heading west thru W Texas (what a joy!), up Hwy 191 to stay at Hannagan Meadows, west on 260 to Sedona, up to Flagstaff, to Las Vegas, Yosemite, and up to Hayfork, CA to meet up with Randy and his crew there.

    Not sure about the timing yet, but I may be in Hayfork on Saturday night and depart before Randy's campout on Sunday evening. I am volunteering at the rally and need to be there on Wednesday. That means I need to arrive in Salem Tuesday evening. I think Randy is planning a 3 day ride from Hayfork to Salem. If you or Randy tell me I can make it in 2 days I will hang around till Sunday.

    Anyway, not many people know or appreciate how much work you have put into these events (RA rally in NC and the MOA rally in Salem) but here's a quick thanks in advance for providing the opportunity for all of us to get together for such a great time.

    Looking forward to seeing you there!

    Damn straight! I've known Ian for years and the amount of time and dedication he puts into GS-related activities for the rest of us is amazing. I enjoyed watching the GS event at the RA rally (see photos at www.facebook.com/mortonsbmw), and when I get to the MOA rally, I'll be doing the same. One of these years, Ian may even get me to participate

    'Til then, I'll be content just to see all you fellow GS-ers at the rally and on the road (and on the dirt). Ride safe, everybody!

    Scorebook Just Arrived

    Getting excited about the Rally in a couple of weeks. I just got my scorebook from Ian and am trying to figure out which routes to take. I'll be riding 2-up with my wife, so sticking to more moderate dirt routes. Can't wait to meet you all in Salem or along the way.Cottonwood Pass.jpg

    I received my downloads today. I'm looking forward to seeing everyone in Asheville.... wait a minute, that's not right. In spite of the email, I guess I'll still plan on Salem. I hope I'm not the only one there. I know, cheap shot. Sorry, Ian. I'm leaving Raleigh, NC July 8. Three long days to Rapid City then Cody, WY for Chief Joseph Through Yellowstone to Kamiah on the 14th. I'm going to skip Beartooth this time, or maybe not. I'll have to see how the bike and I are holding up. Safe travels, all.

    The evening of the 15th, the WA riders will be meeting up at a campground near Leavenworth (east of Seattle). Tuesday morning, they will just be getting started, ride a nice bit of dirt road to Hood River, and hopefully they'll make it to somewhere along the Clackamas River by that evening.

    Riders coming up from CA will be starting from near Grant's Pass on Tuesday morning.

    Riders from NV will be near Steens Mountain.

    And riders from ID will be out in the middle of nowhere depending on where they want to stop. Personally, I'd go for a campout near Hat Point in Hells Canyon. At least that is what I'll do on my way back home to Atlanta.

    Hi Ian-

    I have not seen a scorebook. I sent you an email.

    I have not decided between Kamiah or Haysfork as a starting point. One of the great things about riding in Idaho is the lack of people. I took a (2-up) ride in the mountains here Sunday. In six hours we saw 3 vehicles!
