    Lake Express Pricing

    I just booked my travel for the rally on the Lake Express and was pleasantly surprised. For one way with the BMWMOA discount it was $75, a discount of $44.50 off the standard price.

    Thanks to whoever negotiated the price.

    My dilemma

    Here's my dilemma:

    Do I take the Lake Express across the lake or do I ride up Michigan, around and down Wisconsin to West Bend? I'm estimating the ride would take me an additional day. I have the time, so why not ride...........

    I rode the Lake Express in 05 on the way to the Dells. It was a lot of fun. They don't mess around herding you in & out. Take what you want to have with you upstairs. Once you go up, you can't return to vehicles until you get to the other side.

    Lake Express Pricing

    When making reservations did they mention cancellation policy? Just wondering if there is a way to cancel for refund if the worst would happen....that is not being able to make the rally. OH.

    There is a $30 cancellation fee if done 72 hours before departure. No refund after 72 hours. You can change your reservation for $15. It looks like they want you on the boat.

    If anyone is going to ride around and down please send me an email and I have the itinerary and route in a Word Document.

    I plan to take that route out stopping in Port Huron and Traverse City. I'll take ther ferry back - already have reservations.

    Price Increase?

    I realize I'm responding to an old thread here, but I had a different experience.
    The Lake Express is only quoting a $7 round trip savings for the bike -- NO savings for the passenger. I called just now.

    Also, the ferries back to MI on 12:15 are full.

    Anybody else book lately and get the $150 round trip? I am getting quoted $187 total.

    Lake Express

    I don't know what kind of fast one they were trying to pull before. I called back and it got $75 one way on the Lake Express w/ the bike. Since all the times were booked for the return to MI, I am going on the SS Badger to Ludington.

    That's OK. I usually like to return by a different route.

    Thanks.

    Early Volunteers and the Lake Express Discount

    Apparently the discount starts on the 11th. If you plan on volunteering for early set-up and are taking the ferry, just tell the reservationist- they will bill you the standard undiscounted amount, then credit back the $44.50 at the same time. Basically, if you ask for the BMWMOA discount for travels earlier than the 11th, you won't get it. You need to "work it" a bit.
