I got this from Greg North of Charlotte BMW. He is planning a new Rally for this Spring. The BMWRA will have a presence there. The rally is being hosted by the Carolinas BMW Riders Association (98).
Save the dates... April 21-24, 2016
Location: Iron Horse Motorcycle Lodge, Robbinsville, NC
Hosted by Motorcycles Of Charlotte BMW/Ducati/Triumph
This is what I have in the works so far (aside from a stellar location and facilities), and I'm just getting started:
- Presentations on domestic and world travel, training opportunities, unusual safety topics, and a bit of comedy
- Clinics on kitting and self recovery for on and off road
- On-street and off-road training courses by MotoMark1 and RawHyde
- Demo rides on BMW, Ducati, Triumph and ZERO motorcycles
- Better than average 'door' prizes (free raffle style) from Klim, Olympia, MotoMark1, RawHyde, BMW Performance Center, Motorcycles Of Charlotte, BMW, Ducati, Triumph, etc.
- Discounted rates on lodging/camping
I will update this first post as things gel and we get specifics and the registration process pinned down. You will have to register to be eligible for prizes, presentations/clinics, and courses (courses will have additional cost). There will be no cost for registration.
I attended the Horizons Unlimited Rally at The Iron Horse back in October, it's a great facility with top shelf customer service, great food, and just about any flavor of camping/lodging you might desire. Stay tuned, I promise this one will be worth making!
