International Rally

I just can't make it to the CCR so I thought I could do the BMW MOA International Rally in West Bend, WI in July. I have never attended one of these events. May I have your opinions?

Worth the trip? Only 6 hours from home.
Interesting?
Vendors?
Rides?


Thanks much!

Steve

Many good vendors, get new tires installed, take a few demo rides with the BMW demo truck on site. Be among 6-8000 BMW fans. This will be my 4th event since 1999.

Yes, absolutely worth the trip and your time. In addition to the above, you can (if you're so inclined) spend an entire day or more just walking the rows of attendees' bikes; you'll see models, farkles, custom paint jobs, personal touches, and downright offbeat things done to BMW bikes like nowhere else.

We're going, when it gets closer, maybe we can arrange a lunch or dinner for the LT crowd.
