Edit: We have decided to make this an ongoing thread for what now appears to be our annual get together loosely referred to as the Annual Latin American Riders' Rally. The 2008 version runs from this post through post #147. The 2009 version, for those of you who want to skip 2008, begins in post #148 with Bananaman's welcoming words. Though, I can promise you, those won't be his last words. We're working on SALARR III and I'll post a link to our planning stage right here when we get it up and going. Stay tuned. So, the plan is for everyone attending the 2009 SALARR to post their ride reports to and from SALARR and reports of SALARR itself on this thread. Welcome to the combined ride report for all participants in ALARR (Annual Latin American Riders' Rally). We will be meeting at Rocky Mountain National Park from the 14th through the 19th of August, Glacier Basin Campground, group site 13M. Drop in if you're in the neighborhood. This rally was started with the intention of getting together those who have ridden in Mexico, Central America and/or South America, not officially Latin America but we're setting the rules. Most of us had met online through our ride reports and wanted to get together to meet in person and swap war stories. After the initial idea we decided to open it to everyone, especially those who were thinking of riding anywhere south of the border. So there you have it in a nutshell. There will be lots (I hope) of individual posts, pictures and stories from all of the pariticipants from across the country and Canada as they wind their way towards Colorado. So, subscribe to the thread, sit back and enjoy the ride!
