Treasures of Yosemite Rally 2010
Expresso Riders of Northern California (MOA #340) will host the Treasures Of Yosemite Rally on May 14-16, 2010 at the Tenaya Lodge of Yosemite located just south of the Wawona entrance to the park on Hwy 41. The rally is a BMW road touring event encouraging couples both two-up and one and one, plus riding buddies of every stripe to ride the scenic byways of Yosemite National Park while comfortably lodging in the fabulous, four star Tenaya Lodge. A weekend of fun, food, frivolity, and friendship awaits you just minutes from one of our greatest national treasures, Yosemite National Park as well as the backroads of the western Sierra Nevada. The Rally begins at noon on Friday, May 14th and runs through noon Sunday, May 16th. Reknown motorcycle safety expert and AMA Hall of Fame inductee David L. Hough will be guest speaker at several seminars during the rally. Group room rates have been established at $169 per night, double occupancy. Registration for the event is $89 per person which includes Friday chef's heavy h'orderves reception, Saturday banquet, and all scheduled events, tours, and trinkets.

T-minus 67 days and counting.
Just to check in as the rally is firming up on the offerings. Registration is set to close off by the 15th, and space at the lodge is getting sparse. Not that the ones on the fence canÔÇÖt get in, but it is getting limited. A few of the group has reserved additional rooms in our names to hold until the last minute to help those that canÔÇÖt/wont commit by the registration deadline. There may be some offerings that will not be available to those last minute riders, but the room and rate will be the least of you worries.
That said we are on line with Dave Hough. He will be presenting three different seminars. ÔÇ£Bossing the BikeÔÇØ, ÔÇ£Why DonÔÇÖt They See Us?ÔÇØ and a debut of a brand new seminar called ÔÇ£Second RiderÔÇØ. This is on top of ÔÇ£Coffee with DaveÔÇØ each morning.
A group tour will also be offered to include all of the sights and sounds Yosemite has to offer, up, down and sideways through the valley with a stop for lunch.
As for the location, the lodge has graciously agreed to set up a special and secure parking area. Friday night (check-in) will kick off with a Welcome reception, goodie bag and rally specific information as well as a roaming photographer to catch us during our travels around the park. Also of note, the Silent Auction continues to grow. Bidding on the many motorcycle and non-motorcycle related items as well as taking your chances with the 50/50 raffle. A percentage goes to support MOA Camp Gears.
April 8th is coming up fast!
Only a few more days before registration closes. You still have time to get on board. We have a few rooms still available. :groovy
