Where's the old R65 flag?

Been camping in VA for a couple of days with Aida & Graham (Ms. and Mr Buck), Sue Herring (Canada), and me, and we got to talking about the old R65 flag we had back in 2008, and all signed at the R65 gathering we did as part of a larger Airhead Rally in NC. The flag went thru us, then I think to Semper Gumby (Bill), and maybe out to Melena in NorCal? Anyone have a clue where it is these days?

Some old school R65ers with our shiny new flag, June, 2008.



Ms. Buck, the flag, and her spotless '84 R65.



Signed and blurred, due to rain.  Sad



Sue and me this morning, displaying our transparent flag?  Huh

I think the best route, would be to contact Semper Gumby, he is the last person I know that had the flag .

Bill has not been online here in over a year, so I don't know if you will be able to contact him .

If he doesn't respond, let me know, Bill and myself work for the same airline, I thnk I  can get a message to him through my employer, his profile at work says he's in the Dallas area, not Atlanta anymore .

If that doesn't work, I sent Melena an email, Sept. 2014, after there was a significant earthquake in the Napa area, so I know at least at that time I had a valid email address for her .

Semper G still posts on the Britbike.com forum.  If I remember I'll pm him on that forum and ask him about it.  If I'm ever on a computer that will let me log in on that site, grr.

I received a response from Semper Gumby this morning, yes he still has the flag, somewhere !!! Grin

Hopefully, he'll find it and get it to whoever wants to hold on to it for now .

Thanks for posting the pics Steve! I had great intentions of doing it...  It was great getting to meet up with Steve and SueCanada!  Cool

Glad we MAY have relocated the flag as well. Thanks for all the efforts to find it. Maybe we can get it traveling again.

Here's a pic of the three of us at Willville Motorcycle Bike Camp in Meadows of Dan, VA.

I asked Bill to make a posting here on R65.org after he ' unearths ' the flag, and see who wants to have possession of the flag now . Grin

Send it to me and I'll get it to the members here in the western US that want to sign it, then make it's way back east .

Also, I will send it to Australia, if any members there would be interested .

I'll send you a PM with my address .

I got a PM from Semper Gumby  today, the flag is on it's way to me in the northern Sonoran desert of south central Aridzona .

Who wants it sent to them so they can sign it ???

Western US members, or anyone in Australia ??

Got your PM Ed, I probably will get the flag on Monday, I usually don't get mail delivery until after 5 PM .

With my work schedule, Tue-Sat, 0600-1830, I most likely won't get it mailed to you until Jun 12 .

Well, surprise, the flag showed up today !!!!

Ed Miller, you're signature is on the flag that I have !!

Do you still want the flag sent to you ????????????????  Grin      

On the back of the flag, are rallies  the flag has been to, I think you probably signed it at the MOA National, in Redmond, OR, July, 2010 .
