    Harley Davidson plant tour

    Does Harley Davidson have buy and ride program? Will they have a special price for BMWMOA members during nationals?

    Hey now,

    Great photos!

    If there were some routes posted I would like to come out early and do some exploring.

    I think it would be great if there was somewhere recommended for early camping. Perhaps the park in your photos?

    Best,

    Rob Nye

    possible camping site

    Rob,
    Check out Penninsula State Park in Door County (ride time about 3 hours from the WI Rally site) . Door County, WI is as close to New England in terms of harbors and coastline as you will get.

    On your way North to Door County, you can stop at the Palmer Johnson Boat Building Company. Sometimes they will show what they are building for their customers.

    Thanks very much.

    I think it would be great to have a place a little closer to the rally site for folks to hook up at for rides, campfires and fun for the few days of the week before the rally site opens.

    Any thoughts on this?

    Horicon Ledge County Park

    maybe 20 minutes from the rally site. I grew up going to this park, hiked about every inch of it. Its not very big but we don't have very many exposed fault lines in WI.

    Also my mom has offered her backyard in rural Beaver Dam for bikers to camp.

    I'm big on our County park system in WI. Lots of small out of the way camping spots. Give me a mileage range or general state area and I can do some checking for you.

    camping

    I agree that Door County would be a good day trip. Sturgeon Bay is about 2 hours from the rally site.

    Hodag, I do not camp, but is there anything around the Green Lake or Cedar lake areas?

    Camping

    Hey guys, check out Pike Lake State Park in Hartford, Mauthe lake S.P and Long Lake S. P. just north of Kewaskum, WI. Also there is Timber Trails, a private campground by West Bend, WI. (On Hwy D). There is a KOA just south of Fond du Lac and the Westward Ho by Eden, WI. There is a great butcher shop in Eden. See www.travelwisconsin.com

    Doug -

    Over the course of the next few months, Vince Winkel will be assembling all kinds of information to put onto the web page. As a BMW MOA member, we would welcome your help on this project!

    Here is what I have from my visits. A column could be added for region too, north, south etc.
    Excel spread sheet. (Right click and save as) '07 Rally Spread sheet

    Or the same thing as a web page. http://www.partydocks.com/07rally/type.htm

    I would certainly be glad to help in any way.
