    I think I'm the first deserter. Had to go back because I'm flying out tomorrow.

    I had a great time, met fantastic people, and I'm very greatful I got the opportunity to do this.

    I will return for sure.

    TBarstow and I made it back to Vegas just after noon.

    Thanks Joel for another great Noobs Rally! It was outstanding!

    Thanks to all of the riders on the Friday Noobs ride to Chloride Cliffs and Titus. You guys were great, and made it a fun ride to lead after Tim's bike had issues. Thanks to York for riding sweep.

    Cathy - Thanks for the brownies! Wild Child Bob rode great on that new Yamaha.

    Thanks to George (Pointman) and Carson Motorsports for the awesome Alpinestars jacket that I won at the raffle (and to Scott's for the 20% off discount coupon as well).

    Always fun to see everybody at the rally. Hope to see you all next year as well...

    thanks again to all the participants, sponsors and volunteers...:wave

    you guys are all great! i consider myself very lucky having people like you around.

    though we raised good money for charitable organizations supporting our cause, my greatest satisfaction is able to see a lot of real noobs showing up at the event....:clap


    the bad. as expected, accidents and breakdowns happened unfortunately and cut your weekend short. those who got hurt, wish you a quick recovery.

    those on the road still, have a safe drive home.

    Got home safe...or the other side has internet too. Either way, had a blast and learned a lot. Thank you to all the sponsors, volunteers, riding buddies, weather, Lippincott/Saline that chose not to kill us Friday with our breakdown ("Because people die here" - Tae), the awesome weather, the experienced riders helping plan routes, (did I mention the awesome weather?), and Joel and crew for putting this together.

    I have tons of pics but I'm missing my Olympia Motorsports jacket liner. I'll trade pics for my liner :evil. It fell off the bike somewhere along Indian Ranch/Goler Wash/Warm Springs Canyon/West Side Rd. Or give me a bit and I'll just post up on the other thread.

    But seriously...anyone find my liner? I don't like littering and I'm tempted to launch a rescue mission to find it.:D

    Outstanding event, very enjoyable, lots of thanks to everyone that pitched in to make it great.

    Our Saturday loop that took in White Top Mountain did not disappoint. Absolutely spectacular up there. Great group of very good riders.
