In 2012, you can choose to do any or all these events... the schedule will come when it comes. :)

These events are open to all riders, on all marques. You don't need to be a member of the BMW MOA, but you do need to register for our rally.
All events are free, except the Gypsy Tour, which provides 3 nights camping, 3 dinners, three breakfasts, free beer and world-class riding.
[B]“What is a GS Giant” you ask?[/B]
A good navigator that rides off the beaten path to the event. Good storytelling, photo and/or video skills are also part of the picture. Ahead of the event, the GS Giant can take a dual-sport gypsy tour through the surrounding wilds. And at the event, on the track, the GS Giant will totally be taking everyone’s lunch money.
GS Giant participants will have the opportunity to score points as they ride to and around the rally, as well as compete on the GS Trials Track at the rally. The more you participate in the various events, the better your chance to win the 2011 GS Giant title. And in addition to the recognition of your adoring fans, if you win you score an amazing Grand Prize. Even if you don't win, if you enter you'll be eligible for a some great door prizes and other swag. :deal

So happy, The "Polarbear":)
Yeah! This will be four years running for GS Activities now and I'm always IN for great adventure, "off the beaten path". I am glad it seems to have stuck, the GS Idea, trials and all else at the National Rally. Couldn't help but do so, as folks love it. Pennsylvania should indeed be a great venue for some great exploring and GS Play at the rally itself. Looking forward to it. That pic above is me about to bash my skidplate OFF the GSA, as I recall. All was well, minus one skidplate in the mudhole:). THX for sharing it, I laughed a lot that day.... Randy"Polarbear":thumb
"Polarbear"out of his enviro;
I do much Better in snow and ice:). BUT, notice how gracefully I stepped off, NO MUD on my riding gear! The plate is actually hanging by a rubber thread in this pic and when I stepped the bike back onto its feet, the plate hung very loose and fell off from this fall. Its designed to do just this of course, as the rubber mounts are sheared if hit hard. IAN, yes you have my blessings and these also show the "red cross" on my waterproof trunk, partially submerged in muddy water here. No first aide requiured this day:). I'm considered rally fodder, my pics of course for anything rally ad wise. I'm in, always. THX for the memories in Redmond. Always a laugh. Randy
