    Thumbs up Too Hot in SE for the National

    No National BMW Rally in the SE of course as it is to HOT in the summertime. I guess 96 degrees in Oregon is not hot either. May the forest of shade trees keep your camping area cool.

    Forecast for 7/16:

    Redmond, OR - 1 p.m. 84 F Humidity 20% THI 81 F

    Jacksonville, FL - 1 p.m. 89 F Humidity 59% THI 97 F

    I think I'd choose Redmond.

    Hey Ian!
    Ouch.
    Hey, 20% humidity will dry you up very quickly regardless of temperature.
    I'd still choose Redmond.
    Is there a "I'll hit you back" emoticon? Indeed.

    I understand that guy got dehydrated while riding the Redmond 1000.
    Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate.

    I hope he's fine and makes it back to the rally.

    he's ok, and back at the rally.

    but i believe there was another guy who was an RPU trainer. you really gotta give it up to those folks, they're sitting (standing, actually) out in that hot sun *all* day long.

    Go soothingly through the grease mud, as there lurks the skid demon.

    Wasn't the rally in the SE just last year? I thought that since I was from the left coast maybe I didn't know what the SE consisted of.....but google clearly says Tennessee is in the SE.

    You needed Google to determine that little tidbit?

    Put me in the too hot to camp group, please. I hauled all my camp gear around for a week and went to a cheapo motel in Bend.

    The weather was great up in the mountains


    The rally was very well put together!

    Back to heat, I sure liked my cooling vest for my ride home

    If you could find a tree.

    Oppressive is a better word.

    Beemergirl: Tennessee is the SOUTH the SOUTHEAST IS a different place. The MOA will not hold a National in GA/FL because it is to hot there in the summertime. Funny how many BMW riders favor the GS model which people ride around the world (some people) but they could not possibly ride to Florida in the summer because it would be TO HOT! I know there is a rally site committee, etc but in the end a very few handpicked people make the decision. Why not put it up to a vote of the members?

    you vote when you elect board members.
