Re: Vendors

As of today we've got the following Vendors signed up and still working on more.  Some Vendors have declined due to the MOA Rally being the following weekend out west. 

Mick-O-Pegs                  www.ridingiswonderful.com

Skene Design                 www.skenedesign.com

Renedian Adventures     www.renedian.com

Kermit Chairs                  www.kermitchair.com

Fit Ear                             www.fit-ear.com

In addition, the Odawa Casino up the hill from the fairgrounds is helping to sponsor the rally and  has signed on as a Vendor.  Besides promoting their facility, they plan on conducting some fun "table games" and prizes.

We are actively working with Dunlop Tires to promote their new RoadSmart 3 tires and a local motorcycle shop.  Hopefully we will have some special pricing and tire changes available.

Remember its all about riding in a beautiful area and the comradery with fellow BMW Riders around the campsites.  Even though we might be a bit short of our normal vendor quantity this year, we won't be short of fun and enjoyment.

Bob

Re: Vendors

Thanks for the response...I totally understand the dynamics at work in vendors dealing also with the MOA rally. In any case, as you imply, the rally is about a lot more than vendors. My interest is in tires, so, I really hope the arrangement you referred to with Dunlop works out.

Re: Vendors

If you are thinking about tires, BMW Motorcycles of Grand Rapids is a good shop, and on the way from most places south of the rally.  Only a few hours north to the rally from the shop.  Setting up an appointment with a tire order would limit your down time.

Re: Vendors

There are a few new developments on the vendor front...  The list has grown and there are a few more on the fence.  The confirmed list ...

Skene Design                 www.skenedesign.com

Renedian Adventures     www.renedian.com

Kermit Chairs                  www.kermitchair.com

Beach's Motorcycle Tours       www.bmca.com [MAJOR DOOR PRIZE]

Odawa Casino               [teaching you to play Blackjack and giving away prizes]

Cycle Smart Dock          new tech that provides a secure cell phone mount where your Garmin used to be

6th Gear Motorcycle Gear   These guys are a vanishing breed... they will do custom sizes at a reasonable price 

Ernesto's Cigar Bar        www.ernestoscigarlounge.com  Are you too lazy to ride into town?  Big E's here!

ALSO... The Dunlop deal is set.  See Bob Alexander's post for details but the basics are, Dunlop has made a deal with a local master dealer, Highland Trails, located about 8 miles NE of the rally grounds.  They are offering discounted prices on tires and if you buy a pair of Dunlop's new Roadsmart IIIs during the rally you'll get a $110 rebate from Dunlop.  Highland Trails is also offering discounts on mounting and balancing.

If you have a favorite vendor that might want to come to Petoskey, have them contact me at
