    May be we should start a thread where we can all get together and talk about almost anything in a civil tone. Sort of like a tavern or I know we could call it “The PUB on the Screen” POTS for short. Just and idea.:cool:

    [QUOTE=jeremell »]I’m a member of both clubs and I’m not trying to disparage either club, I’m just curious and was thinking about this. I notice that the MOA has a very active forum and the RA does not. Why would that be?[/QUOTE]

    I am also a member of both clubs and I do spend a lot more time on the MOA forum. The MOA having many more members is the most obvisious answer, plus it has been around a little longer. And with that said, the MOA forum, as busy as it is, is only used by a very small percentage of its membership. I read somewhere what the figure is, but I can’t remember it. AlsoI guessing its safe to say that the figure, what ever it was, would proberly apply to the RA as well as we more or less share the same interest. And with all the duel memberships and a limited amount of time to be on line, for me anyways, Many people proberly gravitate to the busier of the two forums. IMHO. I do plan to start visiting this forum more ofter this year, at least until the nice weather returns.

    That’s because the RA members are out riding, RA = Riding as opposed to MOA = Member..:eek: Only kidding, I think its because the RA is much smaller in membership, The MOA site is a little easier to use, and there is only so much time to spend on line, not to mention all of the other BMW sites, Sporttourer, adventure rider, etc etc… I’m trying to spend more time on this site. hopefully so will other people. Later:cool:

    [QUOTE=osbornk »]After checking out the location of the “other” Rally, I was really glad to see the location of this Rally. It is the exact opposite of Gillette and that is a really good thing. The temperature should be great. Or course the weather at the Biltmore should have been perfect but unseasonable heat and the drought made it less than perfect. It was still far superior to what normal weather will be at the “other” Rally.[/QUOTE]

    +1,:D Only 6 months to Rally time. Can’t wait as this will be my first time to UP. I didn,t think it was that hot at the Biltmore.

    [QUOTE=flat_twin »]Hi everyone!!,
    I just called Travis at Michigan Tech about the dorm rooms there on campus.
    Travis said he can’t take reservations for the rally until late May. He also said there would not be a problem getting a room as there are over 2200 available! Once his summer staff is in place, he’ll be able to take reservations.

    [QUOTE=ctyankee »]By the looks of your hometown (and mine) maybe we can head out together! I hope it is an early Summer date…we’ll see.

    IMO…Major bummer on the Wyoming location for the MOA.[/QUOTE]

    Hi ctyankee, I few of us Ocean State BMW riders will be going and if you want to meet up with us I’m sure we can work something out.

    There were showers there? Oh well. I have been to around 20 Rallys, RA and MOA and this is by far one of the better rallys that I have been to. I want to thank everone who pitched in for a job well done. I don’t envy the people running next years rally, where ever that is, as this willl be hard to beat and I think you have raised the bar for future RA rallys… B.M.W. Bitch, Moan & whine. My only whine is the number of vendors. I know a lot of them went to Americade instead. I don’t think anyone anticapated the number of riders to the RA rally this year would be that large. If this keeps up it will start to (Heaven forbid) look like a MOA rally. 😮 Just my 2 cents worth

    Thanks for the heads up. I haven’t been on the parkway for several years. Maybe this time I will get to enjoy some of the scenery.
