I just joined the BMW family two weeks ago when I traded in my 2012 Kawi Concours 14 for the K1600GT  Sport. I'm still getting to know the new ride and I'm enjoying many of the new creature comforts.  So much to learn so much fun ahead.  Hope to see you out there.

Welcome, Bill!

I'm in Mankato, a couple of hours south from you. I don't get on these forums very often, but there's a great group of people here.

IMHO, you need to hit a couple of rallies to REALLY see what this community is all about! Watch the calendar, there are events going on all summer within a day's ride.

The Wisconsin Dells rally is coming up fast, only a couple of days away. It's a great one if you're not already into camping, as there is also lodging on site.

The RA "National" is coming up the first weekend in October. It's in AR, which is relatively close. I'd strongly recommend trying to attend that one, as well.

Falling Leaf Rally in Potosi, MO enjoys a good reputation as a nice way to close out the season.

Here are a few more nearby rallies which I have enjoyed in the past (you'll have to wait until next year): Great River Road Rally (GR3)- Soldiers Grove, WI. Hiawatha Rally- Money Creek, MN. Iowa Rally- Middle Amana, IA.

Many other rallies are within a day's ride, which are on the "to do" list, as well.

Hope to see you at a Rally soon. They're not everyone's cup of tea, but I sure enjoy them!

Welcome Bill,

I invite you to also join the BMW Motorcycle Owners Club of Minnesota.

Our monthly meetings in Minneapolis at Broadway Pizza may not be very easy for you to attend but we do have some club rides, meet to eats, etc and of course our annual Hiawatha Rally. There are some other perks to being a member such as discounts on parts, apparel, accessories and camping gear.
