Currently I've got one other member from the BMWRSM riding with me and we are planning a 2 week trip that would include Mt.Rushmore, Devil's Tower, Yellowstone and Grand Teton as part of our loop in addition to the rally. Pretty ambitious with some hard riding for sure. We would welcome additional riders. We would likely be doing a combination of camping/hotels and would have a GS 911 on board in case of problems. Let me know and we'll all plan it out a bit more as we get closer. Don

Yes, sling that Honda on davits on the stern of your Bagger. I don't recommend Mosquito Pass; you will drop your bike. Everybody does. Don't ride solo. See the photos in OTL recently showing Mosquito Pass during the RawHyde Continental Divide Ride? Buy MedJetAssist! But, I'd gladly ride YOUR GS over Mosquito Pass...

The CO rally will have many GS routes designed according to your skill level and how much you want to be challenged. Even the "easy" routes will be 100% action-packed and photo ops will unfold constantly! OTL has a GS expert guy in CO who's mapping all these world class rides. This could very well be the best RA rally ever experienced. This is going to be a real world adventure-riding BMW rally, to be sure.

I just found out some more exciting news. When you arrive Thursday and want to kick back and relax, hop the FREE Summit Bus to Frisco (6 miles away). They are having the 19th Barbeque Cook Off. Music all weekend. The is the biggest barbeque event in Colorado. How cool is that? Take advantage of this Thursday night so we can all hang out at Copper Friday night and see the vendors.

Get your fill of barbeque before you get up and do the twisties on Friday.

Enjoy cool nights of camping and wake each morning to the site of breathtaking mountains. If you’d like more amenities, Copper Mountain is offering special rates just for our group in the lodges. Maybe you’d like to room with a few friends.
In order to take advantage of group rates or find out more information please call Copper Mountain’s toll-free conference/groups reservation line at (866) 837-2996. Reference Group Code “349” and or group name “BMW RA Rally”. For more information, go to bmwra.org and look under “National Rally” for room rates.

This will not be your traditional rally. We will not have any seminars this year. We’ve changed the vendor hours so that some evening hours are available. Vendor hours are tentatively Thursday 10-5, Friday 4-9 and Saturday 9-1.

Just made my reservations for a room at the rally and I was very UNIMPRESSED. The person I talked to knew about the rally but there aren't pictures available (that I can tell) for all of the room types. And even though the website says FREE WIFI, it isn't guaranteed. I'm planning to vend at the rally so I know I'll need internet in my room. I would like to provide this feedback as I was quite disappointed with the person I talked to on the phone. Needless to say that I tried to do it via the website link provided first but couldn't see all of the room types available there either.

Hope the rally is better....

I am sorry that your experience was unimpressive. I will be contacting Copper Mountain immediately to address this. I have also found that the website really doesn't have room photos. If my recollection is correct, I posted links I found on youtube on fbook. I will find those and post them here. Thank you for bringing this to our attention. We're planning a fabulous rally.

Here is my response from Copper Mountain.
Tina,

Thank you for the feedback, I have forwarded it along to the call center supervisors.

Please note that we do have pictures of the lodging buildings as well as descriptions of their units and amenities on our website. We do not post pictures of individual units on our website, as they are all individually owned and vary in appearance and décor. All gold level lodging does have WiFi as well as a number of additional amenities, most of the silver level have either WiFi or eithernet, generally there is not internet access in bronze level lodging.

If you need any additional information on our lodging options please let me know, I want to work with you to ensure your guests have all the information that they need.

Again, thank you very much for your feedback.

I will post youtube info that will show a typical room.

Thank you for your enthusiasm. The RA has a great magazine. You'll really enjoy it. I will have all the info that you need to know in the March issue of OTL. I also will have info here on the forum and on facebook. If you plan on staying in the lodges, please go to the home page, go to "national rally" on the left menu and go to the lodging. Otherwise, we do have camping. Also, any questions, please feel free to email me at tinarashell333@yahoo.com. Welcome to the RA. Glad to have you.

Rally Weather: I checked with a local resident regarding the weather at rally time. He said to plan for fall like weather; which can be a bit unpredictable. Temps could be 70's and even 80. Evenings upper 30's or low 40's. Bring your Gerbings for early morning riding and a light jacket for evening. We could have snow in the higher elevations (9,000 feet and up) but our ride coordinator will know how the weather looks in May and plan the rides accordingly.

Finally remembered my login....

Bring a good mix of clothing and riding gear... then you will be fine riding in any type of weather or temps... In June by 9 am it starts to get hot in the sun... the summer showers normally start to pick up by early afternoon. Where Copper Mtn Ski Area sits it can be a bit funny with weather at time since the Ten Mile range is just a mile to the east and the continential divide is just up the road on CO 91 at Freemont pass. Normally if it does snow high up above tree line it will be melted off by mid morning if anything gets low down. Dress in layers... easier to strip a layer on or off if needed. Most of the rain storms are hard and fast... they can pass within a few minutes.. my normal summer riding gear has a top rain jacket i can just throw on in a couple minutes over my jacket... DONT FORGET... your sunscreen... you will burn up here a lot quicker then down at lower elevations due to the drier thinner air.... lots more UV

Remember for all flatlanders... you will be staying at 9700ft in elevation... so please take care not to push it too hard and depending on your age and physical "in-shape-ness" There will be a thing i will put together with the rally organizers for when you check in about the signs of Altitude Sickness... it normally is not an issue for most but the first day can wear you out a bit... so you will sleep like a baby Biggrin most AS issues are easily fixed with drinking water and just going not as hard as you normally would. Just drink a lot of water and eat regurally or carry small snacks with you when you ride... nice thing to do is pull over for a snack and enjoy the scenery. I am also looking if I have the time with getting some different routes paved and dirt together for people for some different hiking trails for people also.

If you fish there is a lot of great fishing (gold metal waters) everywhere... most are catch/release... you can get your fishing liscense at most tackle shops... There will be more when you get there... I am currently looking are suggestive routes on dirt roads.

Make no mistake, the 2012 RA Rally will be a riders’ event. The site and surroundings will present a plethora of roads and scenery for every rider, street and dirt. This will be unlike any previous RA rally and luckily it coincides with BMW’s focus on the off roading aspects of their GS line of motorcycles. There will be rides laid out for everybody’s delight, whether you’re two-up on your K1600GT or on your knobbied and armored GS. Difficult and easy treks will be highlighted, so there’ll be something for everybody, from mildly daunting ascents on graded dirt trails or canyon carving with your audio system turned up! All motorcycle makes and riders are welcome. Expand your horizons and plan on being there!

Copper Mountain is a visual delight and is unique in lots of ways. Prepare to be comfortably ensconced within a luxury resort if you wish, with shopping and culinary delights available all day long and into the well-lit night. Long time serious GS adventurer, pro photographer and CO native Mike Rand knows the territory by memory, has ridden in places seldom seen, and has designed our routes for us all, from K1600GT to G650GS.
Make sure you have the proper tires if you intend to enjoy the more difficult paths. And bring your camera! This is going to be a great time for all.

The rumor is correct. We don't have a beer garden this year. Our gathering place is going to be at the Burning Stones Plaza. It's a beautiful outdoor area. Friday night and Saturday night we have bands playing outdoor there. Tables and chairs are all around. Restaurants and bars also are right there. All of this is in the same area as the vendors.

Fires-as is the rule with most of the national rallies, no fires in the camping areas. Too many people. Hope to see you there! Did you read the all the info in your latest OTL? We gave a lot of different ideas "out and about" and a great article was written by Mike Rand about Colorado.

Glenwood Brew pub... though there is the Dillon Dam Brewery and the Breck brewery in Breckenridge closer for gourmet brews... plus the Minturn pub and grill for a real locals experience...there is also a great place to graba cold drink and some grub up at State Bridge on CO 131 north of Walcott on the way to Steamboat Springs..

At the entrance is parking for your RV if you do not need any hook ups. I couldn't obtain RV parking with hook ups because it is a resort. Sorry. The neighboring town is Frisco. Maybe they have an RV park.

If you find something closer then Breckenridge, please post here. Would appreciate it.

Please do me a favor and preregister if you know you're going. It's going to be important to make sure I have a good head count for the caterers. Thank you all!

At the soccer field is also a big parking lot for RV's or trailers that do not require electric. Bathrooms are located here. Camping will be allowed here Wednesday before the rally. On Thursday, available camping is also available inside the ski resort.

Independence Pass is at 12,095 feet in the central Rocky Mountains - the highest paved pass in Colorado - at the center of one of the most spectacular stretches of road in the state, between US 24 and Aspen, passing clear rivers, beautiful valleys, steep peaks and extensive aspen forests.

East of Aspen, Highway 82 climbs steadily next to the Roaring Fork River towards the Sawatch Range in the middle of the Rocky Mountains, then descends into the even more beautiful valley of Lake Creek, eventually joining US 24 fifteen miles south of Leadville. The scenery at the pass and all along the 44 mile route is some of the most spectacular in all Colorado, and perhaps the finest viewable from a major highway - the road runs right beneath many great mountains including the highest in the state (14,433 foot Mount Elbert), and rises well above the treeline into the stark Alpine tundra zone, while also passing lakes, rivers, steep-sided valleys, thick forests of fir and extensive aspen groves - so in fall, the yellowing leaves make the landscape even more colorful and photogenic. Independence is the highest paved mountain pass in Colorado, though there are several higher unpaved passes (such as Mesquite and Cottonwood), while three paved roads climb further (Pikes Peak Highway, Mount Evans Byway, Trail Ridge Road in Rocky Mountain National Park), but these are not passes. Highway 82 is usually open for only six months of the year, from late May to late October, and the trip between Aspen and US 24 takes at least 90 minutes.

I came here to read information about the rally... I find that you need to have access to OTL instead! Why is that? Is it a secret to share information on here and just to those who are actual members and having access to OTL to find out actual information? How do you expect to have or get more riders attending if not much information is shared on forums? This is suppose to be The MOA isn't this way in which you can gain a lot of information off the forums and not having to be directed to BMW ON... Discouraging to see...And this is suppose to be a big 40th celebration!

Fly and Ride BMW RA Grand National

Fly and Ride BMW RA Grand National

Hello,

Let's talk about travel in Copper Mountain, Colorado for the BMW RA Grand National

June 14-17, 2012

First, would you like to just fly to the rally and have your bike delivered to you? Here's your chance.

FEDERAL COMPANIES PROVIDES UNCRATED MOTORCYCLE TRANSPORTATION

Federal Companies, agent for Allied Van Lines, has been providing motorcycle transportation in the continental US since 1991. They transport between 10,000-12,000 bikes per year, for people buying, selling, moving, vacations and those having restoration work done.

Maybe you'd like to ride the Rockies, but live on the East Coast and vacation time is limited. Did you know you could ship your bike to Denver, CO and fly in and ride your own bike where you want instead of spending most of your time getting there? Allied Van Lines transports the motorcycles on 8x4 wooden pallets, secured with 4-tie downs in an enclosed air-ride trailer. Normal transit time is 2-3 weeks, but can take as little as 1 week.

Visit their website at funtransport.com or email motorcycles@federalcos.com. You can also call at 800.747.4100 ext 2217 for the first available coordinators. Hours are 7-6pm central time Monday-Friday and 10-2 central on Saturday.

Or maybe you'd like to fly out and rent a bike.

tourbikes.com

Colorado tourbike rentals and sales. Phone: 720.231.6349 or 866.337.7810

They have BMW's to rent.

Mission Statement
To provide high quality motorcycles for accomplished riders at reasonable prices. We operate by appointment from 8:30 AM until 9 PM. The address of the shop is 11801 East 33rd Ave., Unit B, Aurora, CO 80010. Call first.

Focus
Colorado Tourbike Rentals was created to provide high quality motorcycles for accomplished riders to use while visiting and exploring Colorado, and all other U.S. destinations and Canada. We are family owned and operated and this is our eleventh year of business. We have hundreds of satisfied customers. Bikes are rented on a daily or weekly basis. All bikes have luggage. Raingear and helmets are available free of charge. We have GPS units available for use with most of our bikes at an additional charge of $20/day or $100/week.

Getting around at the rally is going to be effortless. The Summit Stage is FREE, FREE, FREE. It travels from Copper Mountain throughout the entire county. This includes Breckenridge, Frisco, Leadville. Take a look at the link to see the schedule. Don't feel like riding? Hop the Stage and go exploring. You want to ride but someone else in your group doesn't? Let them hop the stage. Oh and it's FREE!

Good grief, what do we have to do to generate a little enthusiasm around here? It's just two short months until the RAlly in ColoRAdo and it seems awfully quiet here.

Maybe everybody's just too busy riding and getting their gear together for the trip. See everybody there!
