Just wondering how many of you locals will be at the RA Rally in June. Maybe we can stage a BMWLT.Net meet & greet?

Pre-registered and good to go. I'm leaving early to ride the Dragon as well! :eek:

We're not registering to attend the whole rally, but as annual Biltmore pass holders were planning on swinging by to check things out.

A bmwklt meet would be fun.

Can some one post the dates to the RA Rally? I just moved to Florence Ky from Greenville S.C. a year ago.Hope to find something to do in N. KY or S.OH. I don't know if we can make the RA Rally but I'd like to try.

I was going to be there as an instructor for the ERC classes they are going to offer, but am scheduled to teach somewhere else that weekend.

Anyone going to be near Deals Gap on Memorial Day? We'll be in that area that week sometime, staying over in Pigeon Forge, TN

Here's a link: http://www.bmwra.org/rally

one day pass

Has anyone heard anything regarding the ability to purchase a one day pass to the RA? If you can what are they charging?

I'm Riding up Friday from the Midlands of South Carolina if I can sneak away from work early enough. If not, then Saturday morning... I just picked up a new 2007 RT, and really want top try it in the mountains! (I just can't get too much over 600 miles due to the break-in service thing.)

The guy organizing for the ERCs said there will be a single day pass on Saturday, but he didn't tell me the price.

My bike has been in my garage for the last week waiting on valve shims. The good news is that it was the FIRST valve adjustment required in 126k. The four that were out of spec were less than .001 out. What a brick. Started to put it back together last night and realized I had left the GPS on resulting in a very dead battery. If it is charged back up by this afternoon, I will be there tomorrw for a while. I figure to just walk around with a constant LT wave until someone notices :histerica

I e-mailed a BMWRA rep, she stated a single Saturday pass is $43.
Thanks for letting us know. I sent emails and have had no luck with any replies.

Had an alfresco lunch with John at the Winery on Friday.Rode the Dragon on Thursday and was passed by a a crotch rocket doing a wheelie! I'll check next week for Killboy and Zee photos of the Lady & me taming the dragon. :D

Took the Behind the Scenes Tour of the mansion and the audio walking tour. Whatta place! They have no idea what the original construction costs were. The original copper roof flashing trim had gold leaf outlining George Vanderbilt's initials! A different time and place . . . :eek:

I found a 6% error on the odometer compared to GPS. The RT was 1480 miles @48.3 mpg ranging from a leisurely tour of the BRP from Fancy Gap, VA into Asheville. Slabbed it on the return at legal plus a few.

Normally ride solo and forgot to adjust the ride for the added weight of the gear. When adjusted, it made a difference.

This was my first long trip on the LT. She performed like the lady she is! :)

Hi Paul,

Glad you made it home safely. Thanks again for lunch yesterday. Enjoyed the company very much. Good to see you had a good trip to our little part of the world. Nice pics.

Chris Vowell (hybridcage) and I went back today. Found all the vendors this time and met a few other Lt'ers like Jeff (jeffklt) and Tom Jones - not on this board and not the singer.:)

Everyone I talked to loved the venue.

I talked with 12 LT riders around the rally and only two were familiar with this forum. Go figure.

Jeff, sorry I missed you up at the RA Rally, I was there on Friday, I didn't return Saturday, just got out and did some riding and tried to stay off my feet.

Same true here about the knowledge of the forum, I talked with several while at overlooks on the BRP, There seems to be a lot of new LT owners...that have purchased a used LT... If you see an LT with some "farkles" added you can almost bet they know of the forum.

I talked to one couple that was looking for an event like "Honda Hoot" for the BMW rider... I gave them one of my CCR cards and told them to check it out, hope to see them at Tan Tara A ...

I did run across a few CCR attendees and talked to one fellow that will be attending his first CCR as well.
