Re: 2018 Rally

Are the bmwmoa  and the bmwra rallies on consecutive weekends to make it easier or harder for people to go to both?

Re: 2018 Rally

First off, July 19-21, was the week that was available to us. Of course we did consider how many miles and days apart both rallies were. It should be an easy trip, less than 1,000 miles and doable for most riders.   Last year, the RA rally in Petosjey Michigan was a week and 1,700 miles apart and many riders went to both.

If it's either or rather than both, I'm going to recommend The RA in Tioga County. The riding in the area is second to none. The roads are great!

Re: 2018 Rally

Both rallies are in July.  Both clubs are looking at venues and dates at the same time.  Sometimes a venue and date is chosen and then there are problems that mthe venue operators and the clubs cannot reconcile.  The clubs have to take a location and date that they think will best serve their members.  Some riders belong to both clubs and do both rallies.  Those riders have no problem going from coast in three days; so the distance between the rallies and the time available pose no problems.

Re: 2018 Rally--Making Both

Looking forward to making both Rally's again this year. Last year it was about 6100 miles to attend both, nice trip. This year probably not so far, but since the RA last may head onward to NS, etc afterward.
