Been riding for decades, mostly HD's until I found BMW. On third BMW since 2005. I was lost, now I am found. Have been member of MOA, but they are getting on my bad side these days. I hear good things about this bunch. Looking forward to a long tenure here.

Welcome to the RA Quad Head. I too have been riding for decades and have been to many RA and MOA rallys. Except for the number of venders at the MOA rallies, and being up to 7 times larger, the RA almost always goes to the better sites, except for Vt, and IMHO are alway's more fun and friendly. The forum is a little slow here on a good day, but thats ok. The MOA can sometimes be hard to visit due to the PC required on some subjects, unless of course the moderators agree with you. Later

Hey Quad Head - we live in Atlanta, but have a place in WNC that we go to every weekened.

I think you'll enjoy the RA and sorry to hear you're not happy with the MOA. It happens.

Personally, I like both and do a few things with both.

Where in NC are you?


Go soothingly on the grease mud, as there lurks the skid demon.
