Official UN-IX Sierra Adventures Announcement!!!

 

Make your plans now for attending UN-IX

 

Date: July 12-15, 2010.

 

Place: Sierra Nevada mountain range of California and Nevada

 

For 2010 we've picked a place to satisfy your appetite for incredible riding. It's the Mother Lode of great motorcycle roads over a variety of mountain passes, with unlimited possibilities for both on and off-road discovery in the High Sierras.

 

A note before you strike it rich on the Unrally site:

 

Event registration and lodging reservations are being handled somewhat differently this year due to the extremely high rate of lodging reservation cancellations wihich have occurred at recent events.

 

You must first register for the event. This includes having your non-refundable registration fee being paid, received, and confirmed on the Unrally web site prior to being able to reserve lodging at the Unrally site. A courtesy email will be sent to you confirming your paid status.

 

Please, do not contact Topaz Lodge, our Unrally's home base, before your registration status is confirmed as paid.

 

Thank you for your cooperation!

Wonderful! Now I can sleep again! Michael, are you going to sleep at the UN or will you ride home every day? :grin:

Great. I'm registered and paid (via Paypal). I'll be riding out with a friend from Ottawa and our wives will fly out.

 

Well done to Dave and Michael and those helping them out.

Big kudos to Killer, the Wizard of Oz behind the curtain.
Thanks - if I'd taken any longer it would have been Unrally 10!

 

I'd really like feedback on the registration process, it's using a general purpose tool I wrote that could, and I hope will, be used for many events here and elsewhere. Rather than clog up this forum let's do it by PM or even better email - bobp@fremontriver.com

:thumbsup: THANK YOU to the UN team.

 

This is going to provide me with plenty to play with and chew on all winter long. Every day now feels like Christmas morning.

 

I can't wait to see all of my old and new friends to be; and for the unforgettable adventure that comes from a supreme motorcycle trip.

 

Whooooo Hooooooooooooooooooooo :clap:

Just a small tip for any Canadians trying to contact the hotel. The 1-800 number for the Topaz Lodge/Casino will not work from Canada. Just use the direct line: 1-775-266-3338 and then select "1" for reservations.

The "register" link does not work for me.
The register link actually calls a little javascript function, if you have javascript turned off not much will work on the registration pages. Doesn't use any cookies.

 

What behaviour do you see?

Hmmmmm.....this could work with my calendar--just a 2 day ride from Austin and I haven't been out to the eastern slope since the early 90's. How does the CHP feel about bikes running 30+ over? :grin:

Link to comment
Hmmmm, take the motorcycle or the boat.....choices.... It will be HOT in July. Or I guess the bike would fit in the bed of the truck and boat in tow.... :rofl:

 

 

Ooooooh, BOAT RIDES!!! :grin:

CHP will give you a present if they catch you. :grin:

 

One department that does not seem to be impacted by California's budget woes is the CHP. US395 is not the best choice for 30+ over....

Bob and Susie are IN... registration number 124... hotel not yet seeing the GO signal but apparently it is OK.

 

Thanks to all the people on the committee, especially Killer- great job... worked fine for me.

and you thought the wait for this announcement took forever... 6 months and 29 days before the wheels spin... or is it 28, there's still gonna be a pile of snow to move in between.

 

 

already counting the days

Bob, the status is changed from unpaid to paid when Dave acknowledges receipt of payment, whether paypal or check.

When that change is made, the hotel's list is automatically updated.

PayPal on its way to Dave and hotel Room Booked :thumbsup:!

 

Thanks Guys...for your hard work and, especially, for putting up with the grief :grin:

so, I hope I have my dual sport by then. I am looking at smaller 400 - 500 cc dual sport bikes. I like the Husky T510. Anyway is there opportunity for good offroad riding for a smaller dual sport? Or is it mostly for the GS crowd? I guess I can fit the R1100s and dual sport in the truck, maybe bring both. I guess it depends on if I find someone to ride out with me. If there are any other dual sport riders coming PM me, especially if you live in that area.

There will be dirt capable rides for all. We can probably come up with some form of technical difficulty idea as we develop the dirt routes and get closer. We are working on routes that people can see before getting here. Some will have pictures from pre rides that were done to give the participant a glimpse of what they can expect.

 

I do not anticipate there to be any single track type stuff, but, there are some real good dirt riders working on this so who knows, there just might be some if there is a desire.

 

One thing I can assure you, there are a lot of dirt opportunities out here.

Just as a heads up to all:

I would advise not planning on riding in the central Sierra on the Saturday preceding the event (7/10/2010) due to the

Markleville Death Ride taking place.

 

There will be a lot of bicycles on the road for this event, with some of the passes being closed for the event.

 

If you plan on riding the Sierras, particularly SR89 South of Lake Tahoe, SR4, or SR88 on Saturday 7/10/2010 please check the website above so you will have an idea what you will encounter. Riders may be out on the course as late as 8:00 PM...

 

I have been through the area in past years at the time of the event, sometimes the roads are shut down early in the day, but open up afternoon.

Randy, I've found some trails that will make a 400cc dual-sport look big. Keep in mind that the riding in the Sierra's can be in excess of 9,000 feet. Don't jet your bike too rich (CV carbs are generally more fogiving at altitude) and all the work you have to put in is going to be that much harder.

 

And for the GS crowd, there's thousands of miles of dirt roads to choose from. We'll have a much better idea after the snow melts.

well it always come down to what I can actually find and afford. but as of right now, I have been looking at the newer Husky EFI "T" series bikes. So jetting would not be a big problem. if I have to go carb, I guess I can "practice" a little jet setting before I come to get acquited with my bike, and be able to adjust it once I get out there. As the event get's closer and I actually sell my three dirt only bikes, to purchase the dual sport, I will check in with you guys again. thanks

Whoa, I just saw the dates are differnt than the original main thread. This event is on a monday through thursday???? Some poeple have to work m-f. I was going to go fri-sun but this puts me out. I cant take vacation during the week. I dont think I have ever seen a rally that didnt fall partly on a weekend.

I'll be there, really looking forward to seeing everyone again. Really great area, I had a business contact in Carson City for several years and got to the area 4 or 5 times a year. Great riding and exploring in the area. We went to Gardnerville to eat Bask food.

I believe the UnRally has always been weekdays. This allows those who have longer rides to only take one week off, and travel on both ends rather than parts of two workweeks. The dates did change, but I'm pretty sure they only moved one day sooner so that it lines up with the MOA rally better.

I'm gonna go out on a limb here and say.... IN! I know, I know, I usually wait until the last possible minute to commit, so this is unlike me. Let's hope it's not a jinx. :)

 

[on edit] Hey, maybe I'll get my V-Strom all dirt-ready for this, since I did so well on Whip's big trailie. :rofl:
