I'll be arriving Frankfurt on July 6.
Tentative plans are to meet with Bernd {others?} there, and do a pre-Rolling Rally excursion to Dunkirk, and Normandy.
If we can work it out, Boomer {first "OtP Traveler} may meet us for a day or so.
After that,, "The Alp's"!!

Ride safe, Ted

Hi Ted, That sounds like a lot of fun too....I know you wanted to check out Normandy and I must admit after watching the movie Dunkirk that would a very interesting place to visit too! I know we will keep in touch as the days gets nearer. The Rally will be excellent!

Now it is 2 months from today when the group from Southern California flies into Munich! We are heading to Hungary and areas nearby before we head to the Rally start! Should be Epic!!  Getting close now!

Hi Ted, Yes I received that email from Mika this morning....Getting more excited...Are you going to order a shirt? I think it would be cool to post what is going on each day of rally. That way persons that are interested get a feel of what the rally is and where we are going.

Maybe see you at the National...I am still on the fence on whether I am going all the way there with the two travelers.

Gonna be great!!

Have any of you {that are reading this} ever rode in Eu?
If yes,, where?
If no, is it a dream?

Ride safe, Ted

Only way to check it off the bucket list is to "do it".

I had that dream, and "OtP", "COG", and "GCE" {GTR Club of Europe} are what made this possible.
Hopefully others will be able to got to a GCE Rally in the future.

NOTE: Next year, we will be sending a COG Member {or 2} OtP to ride with GCE.
            They are selected by votes from COG/GCE members.
          Many don't realize that a Tag-a-long can sometimes travel with them..
             "Think about it"..

I'm going to have to pass for next year as a tag-a-long.  My granddaughter beats out everyone and she'll be in Niger.  But just keep reminding me Ted.

Decisions, decisions. Hard to know what to do.
A simple solution might be; They will come during the GCE-Arctic Rallye II...
 Sounds like a good plan to me!

Lastly. I wasn't aware of the GCE-Arctic Rallye II.

Tell us more!!!

Ride safe, Ted

PS:  Irene, on your Bucket List, I am now reminding you about this!!

One month to go before the Rally starts!! Close to having everything I need to make this a very special trip! Having the OTP travelers stay with us the first couple of days, traveling with them and others and the upcoming last couple of days with them has got me very excited about our upcoming travels!


Will be awesome!!

I will depart Houston July 5.

Talked to Bernd yesterday. Bikes are ready...
He's planning a heck of a side trip to and from the rally...   :motonoises:

Hi Ted, Let's hear about the side trip...I know you will be going to Normandy and possibly Dunkirk...what else does he have planned and when do you start your journey? We may not be going to Hungary now...so if that happens we will likely hang around the Alps area and hit some passes before starting the rally!

Bernd likes to keep the actual agenda secretive to surprise me, and I enjoy the surprise too.
We'll be riding in Europe, so "alle ist gut"!  yahoooooooooo.

We start from Frankfurt. (We prefer back roads, & will mostly stay off of the Autobahns)..
May go as far west/north as Belguim to see Gee/Marc/Daan and other Eu's we met on the other rides.
  NOTE: Several of them rode with us at OtP, XIV and Alp's Rally #1,,,
Plan is Dunkirk, Dieppe, Normandy/Omaha Beach, and then probably ride thru Paris to the Rally start..
Plan was to stay one night in France at a special motorcycle Only Motel. {But Boomer sed it may now be closed}.
{Probably after the Rally} I think we'll see Ralf in Austria and Hans Peter in Switzerland, and ride a bit in those area's with them.

After the Rally,,, it's anyone's guess how we'll get back to Frankfurt..   >:D

I just sent him a note to send me/you the planned routes.

Talked to Doug and he has another route planned. May be picking up his bike at same place as you?
Fias, may also meet us..

Ride safe, Ted
