    Thumbs up If It's Early May... There's A Rider Somewhere Enroute to the National

    .
    And I know of one already. A competitor for the Rally's coveted North America Touring Award is on the open road!

    Out of Florida just yesterday, on a 45 day quest of Club Rally's before arriving Springfield... is the R12GS pilot known here as HEXST.

    An enviable journey that kicks off at the pleasurable Georgia Mountain Rally (GMR) this weekend.
    Then following scheduled service at one of MOTORAD's finest dealerships, Eurosport in Asheville NC, he will travel the Blue Ridge until turning west for the Mississippi River, then north for the Great River Road Rally (GR3) in WI.

    I'll join him at GR3, along with yet another GS journeyman, for about ten days of continental travel.
    On departure, our sights are set on California and the 50th NORCAL 49'er rally.
    The MOA's first National Rally (1972) was held in CA. and supported by this Club.
    This year, it's in Quincy CA. And that offers fine riding from all directions.

    Our route through the upper midwest and northern plains states, is an effort to be north of the springtime storm zone of OK, KS, NE & IA.
    And not through the higher elevations near the Rocky Mountains of CO or NM. May 22nd through 26th will tell the story of hopeful success.
    It was a toss-up this year on planning.
    Scurry across the the storm zone toward the wildfires in the southwest...
    or hope for a passive MN, South Dakota and southwest Wyoming spring weather as we head into Salt Lake City.

    After the 49'er it will be June. Nevada's Loneliest Road awaits the GS pair moving east toward IN & OH, on a 7 day ride home through spectacular UT & CO.
    Undoubtedly, a gaggle of Slash 5's may depart the NORCAL Rally for Springfield MO.
    Their Club has a call "to ride'em if you got'em" effort going on for the rendezvous at the National.

    HEXST, the outrider himself, will wander the Sierras a few days after the 49'er. Sights to see he quoted.
    After crossing the Divide, he may revisit the Land of OZ Rally. Last year at that event, he was nearly blown away... he actually witnessed Toto leaving Kansas!

    When he finally arrives in Springfield MO at the Rider Awards check-in booth, his route mileage, and the accompanying trip log supporting it...
    may take the Touring Award honors.
