Mark as News Rae's Take on the "Unofficial" Rally

First off, heres the photo, sorry its a lil blurry and hasnt been edited, but I know ya'll are dying to see it!!

The Official GROUP PHOTO!!

From Left Top-JLBusa, Angie (not on TWF YET), Bal_Sak, 600rr (i think), Psychochild, Drewpy, Trip, Andrea (Trip's fiancee, soon to be member)

Middle from left- Nyrican15, R1u01, fpzx10, NTS

Bottom from left - YBSlow, Rae

[IMG][/IMG]

Obviously we had a great time, this has been the single BEST vacation I have ever taken!! I missed all ya'll and the ride before we even left the parking lot!!

Okay, this might get a lil sappy...be warned!

This weekend I met some of the best people I have ever had the good luck to meet! Everyone that came was just beyond great, friendly and people I definitely feel I created lasting friendships with!! I would ride with ya'll any day!! I can't wait till next year!!!

Ladies First!

Psycho- you are a great rider and a wonderful sweet person!! You dont need to worry bout keeping up girl, we were trying to stay with you!

YBSlow- you are already my best friend, no need for anything else!

Andrea-you are one brave lady! Props to you for getting out there with us and braving the dragon!!

Both you ladies, I am so incredibly proud to have gotten to ride with you this weekend and proud of both of you for doing it! Ya'll are great and a true inspiration for other ladies that want to get out there!! Next year we are gonna take the guys!!

Jeeps-So glad you could make it, I was so glad to meet you in person and cant wait to see ya again! Guys, I didnt know this before I got out there with him, but Jeeps is an INCREDIBLE RIDER!! I have never seen the like!! One word describes his riding, *POOF* (and he's gone!!)

Trip-thanks so much for all the help you were and for being a great ride leader! Very capable rider great to watch and a "trip" to hang out with!!! (Don't touch the little piece tho!! )

Drewpy- Words just cant describe!! You are one awesome rider and a great guy!!! Watch out for them boots tho, dont get too close!! (You ended up with the biggest piece!)

NTS- Dude, you RAWK!! You scare me a lil, please be careful (yeah yeah, I know, mom syndrome!) but it just wouldnt have been the same without you!! I think we need to call you sparky!

FP-You are one super cool dude, it was a blast hanging with you!! Although next year, you watch out, I am gonna have my camera to get YOU in all those live action shots!

600rr, R1, and Bal_Sak, ya'll are great, didnt get to hang with ya'll quite as much but had a blast when we did, ya'll be safe out there and we'll see ya next year!

NYRican-bro, you are great, nuff said!!

JLBusa-hunny, thanks for not giving me a heart attack!!

As for the ride, words just cannot describe!! Intense, friggin incredible, the best riding experience of my life, etc etc...

The coast racing was great, but next year I want a handicap, a passenger maybe??!! Maybe we can bring some 50's out too!!

We had several awards created this rally, details to follow from the members they honor !

Drewpy Award...

NTS Award...

And the phrase that will live on forever! -- "Leave my lil piece alone!!"

I will create an album out of all the pics we got since I got them all from everyones cameras...I will have it up hopefully sometime this week!

I think we should make it a 2wt forum rally and do something every year around the same time. We could put together some giveaways and get some cabins at fontana and have a big cookout with all the forum members. They do this on the R1 forum and have a great turn out and time. If some of the people that went this time and want to do something like this let me know and we can get some people together to get a few ideas on this and start getting something together for next year.

Sounds like you guys and gals had a blast-I'll have to meet up sometime to ride, maybe next year, if I find enough time. Glad to see that no one was taken by the dragon. More Pics!!!!.

I am just sorry we didn't get to take you more places. Next year we will find that waterfall, Joe, if I have to beat someone up to find out where it is.

We have to induct you into the Kilmer Slayers club as well. I doubt I will get any repeat slayers next year though. It's best you know as little about this road as possible before you do it. It's a quick way to the skyway basically.

Ahhh, you are about a year behind. 2WT forum is us, so it was a 2WT forum rally by being a TWF rally. This was our first year. It was small, but we will get it bigger and bigger every year. Personally I liked Tapoco, not everyone has to stay there, but it is big enough to support a pretty good size cookout. I think everyone who attended this years will agree with me on this.

Yeah, I am up there on almost a weekly basis. I can come up most late afternoons, weekends are a little bit harder to plan. Usually I ride on sundays because it's less crowded. Next weekend I am not going anywhere near that place. It's the McCoy R1/R6 rally. The only thing that compares is the miata rally to the amount of moronic activities that go on up there.

Sounds good. Just keep us informed. I thought since it said "unofficial" that we could make it "official"

Great write-up/overview of the trip!! So jealous I couldn't make it, but sounds like ya'll had a great time!! Love the group pic -- THAT should be what's used for the 2WT ad!! There's nothing else that could better illustrate the sense of community here.
