I arrived Thursday 3:30 p.m. Pre-register line was 20 min. tops with some fine conversation. The walk in line appeared to be moving faster.
The walk-in line moved quickly Thursday AM even though the lot was already filled with bikes -- the longest part of our registration was filling in the forms. There were lots of volunteers handling registration and things moved quickly.

Was really disappointed that when the tallies for registration were given they mentioned a number of countries but never mentioned Canada. Ever year a large number of Canadians come to the rally, the least they could have done was recognize this. Heck Belise got mentioned.
Anyone know how many Canadians attended
Being a proud Canuck,I noticed the lack of mention as well
we were in VT, this rally was more fun for us. Redmond is out of reach, but we.ll go in 2011 if its anywhere near the east coast. Like Ohio or nearer.

Sometimes it's the bend in the road that makes life worth the ride.
There are procedures you can go through to regain entry into Canada after a period of time. 35 years is plenty. If you're interested, you can visit this website, which has links to forms and people you can contact. Even if you disagree with their governments actions, there are plenty of really great people in Canada, and it's a beautiful country to visit.

5% out of 6,000 = 300
That would be much more than I would have guessed. Where did the 5% come from?
(Watching the Texas-HDs-on-trailer migration every August going north on I-25)
There must have been a few really big trailers because my friends bike broke down and I went looking to borrow a trailer to retrieve him and I didn't see anywhere near 300 trailers around the camp sites or in the parking lots.

Jack Wells used a trailer. To haul 15 vintage bikes. I also saw some bikes being loaded into the beds of pickups. Both would reduce the actual number of trailers, right?
