    Annie and I also bought Helite vests. We were planning to do so before the rally, but after I was a demonstrator in their vender's stall I was sold. Even tho expecting it, the inflation was startling. Like getting a hug from Hulk Hogan and being in a steel neck brace.

    The demonstration dummies are selected based on their good looks..........

    My fifth straight rally, and like others I was put off by the early reports of the pending record heat. Nonetheless, hard to call ourselves 'adventure riders' if we don't camp in triple digit temps once in a while, right? I arrived early Wednesday and was fortunate to find a shady, grassy spot next to a building with an outdoor outlet (free phone charging), drinking fountain (with chilled water) and some of the nicest restrooms ever for a fairground. Yes, it was hot during the day, but that's when we climbed on our bikes and went to Park City, or attended a few seminars. I cannot thank the volunteer efforts enough for all they they do. The mobile showers were also very nice, and quite honestly, with all of the wildfires in the west, I'm surprised that there were any showers available. Kudos to everyone who made this happen.

    Your 7th post in a decade?

    This kind of excessive, attention-grabbing submissions will not be tolerated for long!
