      Anyone planning on going to the rally in June?  I looked for a prior post & was surprised not to find one.

      I would think a few will go but still in the planning stages. I’m still up in the air if going to TN.

      The Nashville area just doesn’t do it for me, been there a few times, so I’ll pass on the MOA Rally.

      However, The RA Rally will be in Woodstock, VA September 5 – 8, 2019 right

      between two National Forests and Shenandoah National Park …. I’m in!

      Booked a one bedroom apartment in downtown Woodstock for the week.

      I am leaving June 12 in the AM, if anyone wants to ride down together maybe we can work out a plan.

      Mary and I are going.  I hope we don’t regret it but we are staying at the campgrounds at the Rally site.  We will leave later on the 12th and stay somewhere half way down and arrive mid-day on the 13th.  At least that is the current plan.

      Does anyone have any good ideas for rides in the Lebanon, TN area?

      <div dir=”ltr”>Hal & Mary,</div>
      <div>That’s great news! I’ve been to a number of rallies both camping and finding a local motel (need to book early) but it’s great to see all of the vendors and check out the accessories as well as how others pack! All of the major tour companies (global) always have inside booths so you can check their offerings as well. If you stop by the IMT Bike booth (based in Madrid) say hi to Scott & Isabel. We have also toured with Adriatic Moto Tours and Matej (<i>Metey</i>) would remember us as well since we were in the Alps, Greece & Central/Eastern Europe with his company as well.</div>
      <div>Unfortunately Linda & I won’t be going this year due to a calendar conflict but are planning on one or or more of the MOA Weekend Getaways later in the summer.</div>
      <div></div>
      <div>Typically there is a resource at the rally tent(s) on local riding recommendations and I’m sure yoiu will receive responses from other BMWMOC members who are familiar with the area.</div>
      <div>Ride Safe!</div>

      Hal n Mary et al,

      You wont regret going to an MOA National Rally. They usually get about 5 or 6,000 in attendance so it gives you a great chance to make friends from all over the USA. And Camping really gives you the BEST immersion Rally experience (as long as it’s not SUBmersion).

      And as Don mentioned, there are great riding roads in any direction you can go from Lebanon. ANYbody will have an opinion on thebest roads in the area and they’ll ALL be Right. If somebody says “Hey, we’re goin for a ride, wanta follow?” Get on your bike and follow.

      And,as Paul said, Visit those Moto Tour booths like IMT and Adriatic. Put your name in their drawing bin – YOU could be thewinners. {I was once}

      [and tell em I sent you Too]

      ATTN:   AirBNB for SALE for BMW NATIONAL RALLY!

      Hi all- Looks like I will not be able to attend the rally in Lebanon, TN after all.  My roof is being replaced by my HOA, and they are behind schedule, PLUS there have been problems with leakage, so I want to be home to video any damage that might occur.  On that note, I have an AirBNB in Mount Juliet, TN, about 17 miles from the rally sight (127 Lohman Rod, Mount Juliet, TN 37122).  I paid $203.99 for 3 nights, Thurs 13th, Friday 14th, and Sat 15th.  Host Lou Ann says she doesn’t mind someone taking my reservation.  Her number is (847) 867-5613.

      If interested, please contact me first.  I have a verification (confirmation) number which I will provide once I receive payment, PayPal sandi.valois@gmail.com for the $203.99.

      Thanks all!
