Thanks for your PM R65Guy, I'll start the R65 flag on it's way back across the equator in the next couple of days.

Glad the flag made it ok, quite quickly too.  Enjoy the action at the rally Neal and safe travels to fro.

Reviving this thread since the next MOA National is coming up in June. Any idea where the flag is at this point? If whoever has it is planning on attending the MOA National in Lebanon, TN this year, please bring it. Otherwise, can it be sent to me so I can get it there?

Hi Aida,
There were no other members at Des Moines so it came back home with me.  I still have the flag and I do plan on bringing it to Lebanon, TN!  Hopefully we will have a get together sometime.  I will leave the flag in your capable hands for it's next journey :)
Thanks,
Neal

It will be good to try to get a reunion of sorts setup for this year. I am going to start working on my wife to get some time off to head to Tennessee, wish me luck!

Neal, so glad to here you plan to be there this year! Sounds promising for quite a little group. It will be good to meet up with everyone again after such a long time, and meet some new faces as well!  8-)

Hi Aida!

I still have the flag!  I've taken it to the last 2 rallies but no one else showed up  :(  I plan on being at Great Falls and will definitely be at Springfield in 2022.  10 mile trip for me  :clap:  I can take the flag if so desired. 

If you would like to retire it I think that would be a wonderful idea before it becomes lost forever!  It goes back several years as you know.   I can mail it to you if you like and you can either re-launch it or retire it.  If so, send me a private message (My Messages at the top of the page) with your mailing address and I will mail it to you!

Thanks,
Neal

I think it would be a good idea to send it back to Aida and if someone goes to a rally or other gathering send it off with the understanding that when the gathering is over send it right back, not letting it sit for years  .

Hi there all! Good plan about returning the flag to Aida.
Then to send it to whatever rally we get to then back for
 safe keeping with Aida. I am in fair contact with
Aida so will let her know da Plan!

Btw, I am well  :vrolijk_26: but not riding much since pandemic grounded things.
Plans now forming to get to Springfield, MO. See R65 Guy again! The heat
scares me though......but I love to camp!

1983 R65LS - LRB still my favourite!? 1988 Honda NX250, "Toodles Too" and a Suzuki DR650, "Calypso." All stored in the "Brrrmmm Closet".

Hi Sue,

I will put in a request for cool weather for the Rally next year  8)  Great to hear you are doing well!

I sent you a private message (PM) for some information......
