    Paying attention to the Doc won't be fun but should get you back in the saddle, for longer, sooner. As has been said, we'll raise a glass and toast to a speedy and great recovery.

    Date = Friday July 14
    Time = 6:30 pm to 7:00 pm or later depending on consumption rate and length of jokes
    Area = Beer Garden

    Bob (tourunigo) is bringing a Canada flag, look for that.
    I will bring the second most patriotic flag, a green Riders flag and the "Hello my name is" tags which you will have to fill out
    like you do your census forms: completely, accurately and a select few will have to do the long form.

    Non- Canadians are welcome to join in, but are required to view the following educational video prior to attending

    Seems to be going around. Glad I met you last year, will miss you this year. Got 2 stents last November and did the rehab, very worthwhile. Able to go to SLC.

    Excellent. Looking forward to the gathering. We have been on the road since June 10. Went to St John's, Nfld to start tracking the Trans-Canada Highway. The weather, wind and pot-hole gods have been somewhat playful with us but all is fine now. Sault Set Marie tomorrow and then to coast. Then to rally..... we won't be hard to find. See you then (can you save us two tags?) - Bob

    Do you have enough name tags to go around?
    That way I can save $1 and spend it on beer.

    Local (Salt Lake City) Canadian Ex-Pat

    Returning rider (Canadian ex-pat) living in Salt Lake City, Utah for the last 11 years. I hope to join you all. Originally from Windsor, Ontario (born and raised - I tell people Detroit - easier to explain). Dirt bikes growing up, then a few road bikes and then without wheels for over 25 years as life got in the way. Took the plunge back a couple of months ago – been eyeing this for years - bought a 1998 F650 Funduro this April. Relearning the ins and outs of road riding again but being safe and loving it so far!

    Looking forward to the rally as this will be my first one and ’m posting this from my downtown office about 2 miles away from the site of the rally. If you haven’t been to SLC it is a pretty cool place and there are a plethora of riding opportunities in our local mountains – ˝ hour ride and you are up at 7,500 feet (the city/rally is at 4200 feet) to escape the heat. SLC has a good and growing local beer/bar scene – OK, we’re not Portland or Seattle but we’re making slow progress.

    I hope to join you all for a drink!

    I thought we were having the Red Dog Saloon Friday afternoon...with all welcome. Heck, maybe I'll just take my bottle of fine Scotch to Camp Glockenspiel instead!

    Well, we could do the Red Dog at 5:30 when the seminars are over. Give the Canadians a head start since the beer is 3.2

    I even have Red Dog decals to pass out this year!
