I don't know.
I called to check his credit score and the lady at the other end was laughing so hard I could hear her barfing.

That must mean something, yes?  :(

We could make a little charge and see what happens.
Let's try $19.99. :72:

The donation collected at the Last Blast RTE in Florida has (finally) been sent. Thanks to Larry Buck for collecting it, Jo  Poole for sending it me, and Nancy Icely for sending it back  to me when I goofed and sent it to her. But it has been forwarded today to the OTP  Paypal  account. The SE appreciates the opportunity to support OTP  2020.   :beerchug:

Nominees have been announced! Irmi Doods, Udo Westermann and Mika/Jaanan Pitkanen (Any spelling error's are mine  :??: ). I realize that most of these names are not recognized much on this side of the pond but they are legends over there. I truly look forward to their biographies being presented. Mika and Jaanan are presented as a couple but they will be responsible for the cost of the tag along. Goal is to raise funds for 1 traveler. Stay tuned for auctions and entertaining fund gathering coming. COGGERS are known to be frugal but they are also known to open the wallet for those deserving of recognition and appreciation. Donations all greatly appreciated from 10 dollars up and can be sent to OTP.USA@cox.net via paypal or contact using the same email or reply here or PM me for options. Your very dedicated USA OTP team will be getting busy with planning. You can vote at GTR1000@t-online.de Make sure to include your COG number to have your vote counted. Please let me know if any questions and stand by to stand by.

Harry!! Wake up!!
fyi;
I {and my Bride} voted today for this years "OtP" Traveler.
Now I'm sending in my second Donation.

Suggestion to everyone; Send in multiple Donations as I do... <sly grin>

I do this because;
            The smaller donations don't hurt as much.
            My wife doesn't notice.   :great:
            The total grows.
            It helps send a fellow "Connie Rider" on the trip of a lifetime!  :motonoises:

I'm watching you.  :o

Ted, Somehow, your penny per donation is pretty lame unique.
I didn't knowed your credit was that bad and that yous had to do dumpster diving to sell aluminum cans.



But we appreciate yours efforts. A real pooper trooper.

So, you wrote the rules eh? :(

If 4 some reason you become nominated, I will see to it that you get first class seating.



A more deserving candidate should be the recipient of such an honor.
Knot some armadillo eating texan who trailers across country looking for free (road kill) meals.

If you do win, I have a special bike waiting for you.
Perfect for your riding skills.



So, I wood urge that more people nominate other deserving riders so ted get's eliminated out-voted.
then, make a donation for more than ted's one coin at a time method.



Remember folks, voting costs nothing.
Nominate, then vote. Donations always accepted.

We need a candidate with driving skills better than teds.



Just saying.

These are all deserving candidates without a doubt. Mika did a excellent with the rally in Bollendorf I attended last year while OTP. I had a great time & know it was a lot of work. My hats off to her.

However, I did spend a lot of time with Irmi in Belgium & Bollendorf. This was pretty obvious to anyone that saw the OTP pictures, she seemed to always be by my side. We became friends & stay in pretty close contact, my wife refers to her as my German girlfriend.  :??:

She is a absolute blast to be around & is always laughing with a constant smile on her face.

I did email Mark a couple weeks ago & offered to host/guide the traveler should they come this far east. We've hosted in the past & it is a great experience. I encourage everyone do so also if you have a chance. Yes I would love the chance to host/guide Irmi.  :) I will be happy to do so with whom ever comes over.

With that being said she'll get our 2 votes. Please support OTP & help bring my German girlfriend over.

Vote for Imi!  :wee_hee:

I received a question about voting.
  ie; Can I vote for this years Nominee if I live in the USA??

I or Bernd can post the specific voting rules about who can vote, how, and when...

But for now; I want to clarify 1 thing quickly.
  COG and GCE members "can and should" vote for nominee's when they go Over the Pond "from the USA to Europe".
  COG and GCE members "can and should" vote for nominee's when they go Over the Pond "from Europe to the USA".

Bottom line: Yes you should vote for one of the Nominee's...
                   If your unsure about who to vote for ask questions and make a decision...
                    "OtP" needs your help to pick a winner!!

Ride safe, Ted

PS: Vote for Ted.
       Yea, I know. I'm not in Europe, not eligible and not a nominee.
                But that's ok.
                    I like to stir the pot and I can dream,,, can't I?? ... <evil grin>

Hello GTR-Community and OTP Orga-Team

Iam Udo Westermann, one of the candidates for OTP 2020. (Sorry that my bios is now, but I could clear one point for a free time schedule in the last night). I lived in Germany with my Family and since 1982, I have a motorbike.

My GTR-Life started with one story about the new model in a newspaper. I saw the pictures and knew, that is mine. Everybody has these Moments, you know? Than going to the exhibition, to the dealer and wait for enough money. But in 1987, I had my 6 months old grey and lovely GTR. It was love from the first moment, rounds and fashion was perfect. The next 24,5 years, we do all things together, never stood on a road trip by technical problems and the 211712 km. At the 2013.05.30 there was an heavy accident, not my guilty - but the end for my GTR. Another 1000, I cannot drive, it isn´t my grey one, you understand. After 11 months, I can drive with my own/other motorbike again.

In the year 2002, I read from a GTR-Meeting in Laubach. The first in Germany in the "Jägerhaus".
After that Meeting, it was a fix date in my calendar. Every year, (not 2013), I was there. And why the people were so amazing, I do something for them.
2004, I organized the GTR-Meeting in my home-city. 35 GTR 1000 in one string, unfortunately never more.
2006, for guide.
2007, I organized in Usseln, special event was the first GTR1400 in Germany in the showroom from the hotel.
2010, for guide.
2011, for guide.
2014, for guide and technician.
2015, for guide.
2016, I organized in Uslar.
2018, for guide and help to organize.
2019, for guide and help to organize.
2020, for help to organize.

In that 19 years, I helped with words and deeds every Person and still do it now and in the future. The Citys for 2021 and 2022 are ready.
I always driven to the "German" GTR-Meetings, because I organize every year for other groups motorbike weekends or weeks and more time than 20-22 days isnt possible. (family, shooting-club, company, friends) In my town, we had 5 GTR1000 bikes/driver and 3 in this moment.

It was a great pleasure for me, that I was nominated for an OTP candidate. Please vote for me and I do my very best.

Udo

The USA OTP team is busy planning arrival points and bikes. If anyone would like to donate a MC for the traveler please let me know. We have 2 lined up and are in contact with Ma Kaw, but based on the current market I'm not holding out a lot of hope there. Chris Buam is working his contacts in the Dakotas. So it's up to US (Yah see what I did There?). Once the traveler is announced arrival points, routes and guides will be decided upon. Also please pay attention of auctions for OTP currently happening on the forum. Drop a nickel, get some swag, have some fun, support a great cause.
