    I’m not trying to be snide; that seems like an awfully small list, though. I’m asking out of serious curiosity. My rally experience is [B]very[/B] limited, so I have no sense on how many vendors show up to a rally like this. Am I just expecting too much in thinking there would be a lot of vendors there?

    I know the RA is a smaller rally than the BMW National (which I’ve never been to, either); are there more vendors there?

    We were hoping for more, but it’s an OK showing of Vendors. The MOA does get more, but then there are 4 times as many attendees. We are also the same weekend as the “Honda Hoot” which is bigger and has taken a few of the generic vendors. With less vendors, you can spend your money quicker with them..more time in the Beergarten…bring lotsa doe!

    Thanks, rockers! I thought it might be something like that, but I really appreciate the education and confirmation. Sounds like I get to buy more stuff from fewer vendors than a bit of stuff from a wider variety.

    See you there!

    This is also the same weekend as the Michigan State Rally for GWTA in Evert, MI spreading the potential vendors even thinner.

    Hard to know! It’s June 14 and the MOA hasn’t released a vendor list for the Gillette rally.

    The MOA now has their vendor list up. It’s quit a bit smaller then years past.
    With the price of fuel it’s getting pretty expensive to do rallies and shows. I for one no longer do any of the smaller rallies that are more then 4 hours from my homebase here in SE PA. I predict the biggest disappointment of the year will be at Sturgis. Far from anything, most trailering their bikes and the outrages vendor fee’s will put that rally on the most likely to lose a bundle list!

    Thanks. I will look again. I called myself looking for it earlier today.
