It's funny how the post above mentions nothing about the LT group moving our gathering to April like it does on the 1600 forum.

Funny how that data had already been posted in this thread: https://www.bmwlt.com/forums/rides-r...mp-riders.html

Some of the LT Forum Community are attending the BMW"s Tame the Tail of the Dragon.

Once again the event is completely booked up except for the New Luxury Cabin... $1,250/ night.

Best,

Doc
