The BMW Riders Association says ..

Join us July 6 – 8, 2017 in Petoskey, Michigan, on the shores of Lake Michigan for 3 days of camping, vendor shopping, seminars and door prizes. Cool nights, great riding, plenty of other lodging in the area and many great roads to explore. You’ll be less than an hour away from the Great Mackinac Bridge.

 

The BMW MOA says..

Come join US July 13 – 16 at the Utah State Fair Park in Salt Lake City, Utah

We all have that motorcycling memory. The place, time or occasion when it became perfectly clear that we were motorcycle people. I like to call it “finding your crossroads.”

As I think about the rider’s wonderland that is Utah, I have to believe that someone will find their crossroads this summer.  With 21 national parks and monuments, 40 state parks, and seven national forests, there is no shortage of places in Utah to inspire you. Easy day rides from the Fairpark will take you into the mountains to Park City, the Utah Olympic Park, and the year-round resorts of Alta, Solitude, and Snowbird.

Brian, Pat and I consider it a great honor and privilege to be given the opportunity to organize the largest BMW club motorcycle rally in the world and the planning of a party for 6,000 or so of our closest friends. We promise to give you everything you have come expect and maybe even some things you didn’t.

The people you really want to thank are the dozens of volunteer Committee Chairs and Co-Chairs and their hundreds of volunteers. These are your fellow members who make the rally possible, and we can’t thank them too much or too soon. If you’ve ever wondered why people do this year after year, I suggest you plan now to volunteer yourself. You’ll find it greatly enhances your rally experience. There will soon be links on the BMWMOA web site to sign up, so don’t forget!
