    Cool CCR vs MOA rally

    I went to my first CCR this year. Have never been to MOA rally. Just bought my first beemer in June, an LT. Can anyone tell me which one is best. I probably can only do one next year. They're both out west. Suggestions?

    The two events are really nothing alike, other than both involve BMW motorcycles, and you're likely to see some of the same faces. The 'MOA Rally features a lot of camping, although many stay in hotels. It's much larger - typically around 8,000 attendees, plus many, many vendors.

    Since you've been to a CCR why not try the 'MOA Rally this summer, that way you'll have a taste of both?

    Yep. Check them both out.

    You're not going to have a bad time at either one, so why not try the MOA this year?and hey, fill out your profile.

    It's the Central Cal BMW Riders club. They put on the Autumn Beemer Bash Rally in September. The last few years it has been at the Plumas county fairgrounds in Quincy, CA, a beautiful location up in the Sierra Nevada.

    Thank you. I thought maybe it was a Chromehead group of some sort.

    It is the Curve Cowboy Renunion. They get approx. 800-1000 partipants annually.

    The biggest difference is that while BMWOA holds their event at a campground, CCR is held at a 4-5 star resort.

    Workshop topics and Vendors- BMWMOA is bigger.
    Accomodations- CCR is better.

    IMHO:
    First BMW Event- go to the BMWMOA Rally.
    First BMW Event with wife- go to the CCR

    I was, in fact, referring to the Curve Cowboy Reunion.
