    Just put a date later than 5/31/2018 anywhere a expiration date is required.  You can correct them all when you sign in.  Basically, fake it for now, and correct it later….😜

    Bob,

    Just enter “TBD” without the quotes, and you can write the info onto the registration when you sign-in at your starting point.

    What you probably received was a record of your registration at the bottom of which is a misleading portion that says “Pay Now”, but you have already PAID and would not have received that email if your payment attempt had failed.

    Bottom Line………..your status is PAID

    A request from the Registration Monitor:

    In the Status field, if you select “Motorcycle Rider” OR “Motorcycle Passenger“, Motorcycle Type field will appear with seven (7) choices.

    Please select one….it’s essential for the Route Coordinators’ planning in setting up platoons to accommodate the various types of bikes.

    Thanks for your attention to this,

    Proof of Insurance card is OK in digital form.  Driver’s license and vehicle registration need to be in the form issued by your state.  Living will and health care directive are not required for registration.

    From the dinner location at CrossRoad Fellowship, just look to the South, across TX-191.  All three hotels are within several hundred yards of CrossRoads.  You don’t need a GPS, just dead reckoning.

    During the 2016 Run, there were 11 “incidents” involving 15 riders.  Most were treated on-scene for minor injuries, and in some incidents, the only hurts were to motorcycles and prides.  Six riders were transported to a medical facility for treatment, none life-threatening.

    Keep in mind that Run For The Wall navigates 3 routes, and in 2016, 587 motorcycles carrying 681 riders and passengers traveled from Ontario, CA to Arlington, VA, an average of 2,750 miles.

    So that’s 1.6 million vehicle miles, 1.9 million passenger miles, and that does not include those who only do part of The Run.  Roughly, between 2.5 million and 3 million passenger miles are racked up each year.

    So, the answer to the original posting is “NO”.  There are not lots of accidents on this Run, and, as has been stated by others in this thread, the safety of riders is of utmost importance to the Run For The Wall Family.

    I inquired of Carol Olmstead (who does not frequent The Forum), and here is her reply:

    Error on CR posting.

    This was last year.

    This year all camping RFTW Family members need to make their own reservations at Prado Park.

    All RC etal were notified no RFTW reservation made this year due to an incident last year.

    Navigator,

     

    I’d like to see how you’ve got the JMCB configured to work with Sena headset and the SR10 adapter.

    I have the JMCB installed (by J&M in March 2015) on my BMW R1200RT, and it’s got some sporadic issues with static both on reception and transmission.  I’ve shipped the unit back to them, and they said it checked out (benched) OK.  My unit works fine if I’m sitting still at a stop light for example, but once I get going down the road, about half the transmissions I receive are almost unintelligible.  I’ve thought about buying a portable CB and configuring it with the SR-10 and Sena 20S headset, but if I can just configure the JMCB to work with the SR10, then maybe I can salvage the installation I have without a lot of reconfiguration.

    So, how is your JMCB configured with the SR10?

    Hoofer,

    I do not see a way to do that, and I think that’s a good security/privacy feature.

    On the old forum each user had the ability to allow/disallow that feature.

    You can select the “Notify me of follow-up replies via email” option.
