    Pre-registered rider numbers are manually done—it is not automatic.    We are working on other registration issues right now.   Don’t worry—the registrations are coming in.      The numbers will eventually be updated & kept up to date later.   Thanks.

    Tony,

    We have close to 90 trikes & spiders ,with or without trailers, plus the bikes w/trailers.   Needless to say, we will have numerous platoons.   All the leaderships have been diligently working on the issue of time at the fuel stops for the ever growing trike/spyder platoons.   We will do our best to get everyone fueled & have a short (albeit sometimes very short) break.    See you soon!

    For clarification for the new riders—

    Some RFTW riders go on their own down to Rolling Thunder (or the Pentagon parking lot) instead of riding as part of the RFTW group that leaves the host hotel parking lot.    To be in that group that rides together from the hotel, you must be a registered RFTW rider.    Plain and simple.     To confirm what was already earlier, RFTW is NOT part of Rolling Thunder– we only ride in the event, along with many other groups or organizations.

    EXCELLENT TIP ABOUT PRACTICING BRAKING HARD.   Please take that tip seriously…you will not regret it, FNG’s.   Just as soon as you get comfortable with the structure and smoothness of our maneuvering on the roads & highways—it will inevitably happen that a car will do what they want & cause an abrupt braking incident.   It WILL happen.   Be ready for it.

    Oh man, Pop.   Wish I could give Hobbit the biggest hug ever.   I know for a fact that she’s got the strength of a lion in getting through this.    But that doesn’t mean there won’t be tough times–as you and she already know.   Like Ziptie, we can’t wait to see her in May and hug her in person.   You be sure to tell her that we’re all here for her and will do anything to make the Run better for her.   Give her our love.

    UPDATE ON PRE-REGISTERED RIDERS— the 500 mark was hit December 26th by a CR FNG, Tisha Moeller, with her husband, also an FNG, Steven as #499!    Welcome to the Run, you two.   Get ready for a life-changing experience!

    From the registration, the route breakdown is  201 Central,   93 Midway,   and 206 Southern.

    Thanks to all, and I wish a Happy New Year’s to every one of you and your family.

    Road Hazard,

    As Wicked said in the initial posting, on-line registration is open clear until April 30th.  That’s less than 2 weeks away from the Run.     That’s as good as it can get for paying $30 in lieu of $50.   Even “day riders”—if they’re serious about our participating in our mission for just a day–can still pre-register without paying.    Like you said, when you wait to pay at the door, you pay more.

    Thanks, and take care!
