Let's do a ride in to New York and up toward Maine. Did the flag ever get up that way? I am such a procrastinator. I FINALLY measured out the lines I need to get bike on the road! Just need to order the lines, install the calipers and bleed them and replace a few nuts n bolts. Sheesh, I wonder how much longer I could put this off. The Z1r is going pretty good. just need to replace the fuse box or rewire it so it doesn't leave me stranded. Maybe this Sunday we could get together for an old school ride. You guys interested?

I have to install a wider door to our basement so my wife's big ass bike will fit through :P
depending on how that goes we were thinking about getting a ride in on Sunday.

Does any body know the final resting place of the relay flag?

Thanks for the pics and the update Jim, anyone else still riding this year?

Rob if you or anyone else wants to try to put together a Canadian relay to finish up North America I will work on running the flag up to you next spring ;)

I don't know that the flag has been retired. I believe Rainman still has it (see www.kzrider.com/forum/17-ride-reports/50...bum?start=260#747248 ), but I don't know of any plans to crank up another relay or any plans for the flag. Rainman is still an active member of this forum. Ed

I'm totally game to start one up. I just didn't want to step on any toes. Any suggestions on another flag or coin or a vest, as the baton?

I've thought of a vest that we could all sew on a patch from your state. The patch can also have your name and info on it...kind of like the flag that everyone wrote on, but without the pen smudges. Wearing the vest will also allow others to see the KZR pride as we ride!

Please feel free to list your suggestions!

And this is all, of course, with the approval of KZR and it's leaders/owners.

This summer! Mad Duck needs to get out again and my project is a day away from finished. I just need to run the brake lines and paint the calipers and mount the rear caliper. It's as good as done. I'm sure I have a friend over in LA that is retired with nothing more than time on his hand and a gaggle of bikes that he rides every day. He liked the idea of it. We definitely could get a group to meet up and ride with us as far as the East Coast with perhaps a rally in North Carolina on the way to the East Coast and back. He could run Route 66 to Chicago and from there we could ride down to Marietta and make camp a few days and then again East. I know that I said I would be down to do this a summer or two ago but my daughter coming along and the house project took my time and my cash.
