The field is taking shape and the mowing is scheduled to be done Sunday night. The area is flat
and has terrific drainage; perfect for camping.


Phillip stakes out his choice of campsites. But folks there is so much choice camping that
everyone will get a primo spot in the shade.


The Yankee Beemer Toy Box arrives with its cargo of coffee urns. There will be plenty of
free GREEN MOUNTAIN GOURMET COFFEE. John Steele, Robert Bailey and
YB President Roy Bertallotto. Thanks Roy.


President Roy and Debbie talk about coffee and the upcoming RA Rally in Heath, MA.

Phil Warren shows the area next to the river features a fine growth of brush. Going to be hard getting a fly rod in there.


Tyler Yandow has the expertise and machine to tame the brush. Bring those fly rods gents.


Tyler is not shy about wading right into his work.


At the same time the camping area is being made as smooth as a baby's bottom.

Great Rally.

Hello BMWRA,

First post here. I ride a '09 F800gs and I just registered for a membership on Thursday.

I enjoyed riding out from Upstate New York Saturday, to check out he GS trails. The rides, views and bratwurst were well worth the $20.

Thank you,

Jess

P.S. Here's some pics I took.

Saturday dawned cool and foggy

And many slept in

But the fog quickly burned off

And the rally came to life!

Stage Fright kicked in when I saw people riding the course. Timing just didn't work out.

I really wanted to ride it but by the time I got there the observed trials were going to start in less than an hour. People were whizzing by on the demo bikes around the straight ways and I saw riders catching air and compressing their front ends hard as they landed (or fell)....

If I had made it there a day earlier, I would have taken it on at my own pace to feel it out and see if I could participate...Oh well....

I do regret to riding the course but that's not to say I did not enjoy watching from the side lines. I

Mr. Not So Happy is Sad the Rally is over! And that the powers that be decided to tow away the showers in the middle of the night on Saturday and not on Sunday morning. Banghead

Good Thing I took a shower after the fireworks! A number of campers made the long hike to the trailer all bleary eyed only to discover that it was GONE!

Good Thing the Yankee Beemers were there with some excellent coffee to take the edge off.

Yah, they would have been Smugmugged, but the Connection Failed sometime overnight... and FB was a way to get there faster. HE's flying home today and should get them up soon, I hope. There's a few good ones of you floating around the ADV site, and I have video which I have yet to edit. Thumbsup

I think it might take a while for his B&W film to be processed. I really want to see how the 'experiments' turned out!
