    I'm not sure because I have family coming to visit from Australia. If they aren't here during the rally, I will definitely be there.

    My wife and I have never been to a major rally, because of work/family obligations. However, we are now retired and . . . . . . . We would like to attend this year. We are NOT campers and will be looking for hotel accomidations. Count us in! Where do we sign up?

    I put attending, but I have to start working on my wife now.
    I hope to go though.
    19 BMWMOA Nationals under my belt, and I have no idea what I am doing.

    Count on a dozen AZ Beemers coming and we're going to have real fun in the July heat!

    We AZ Beemers will definitely be camping at Gillette next July, because it is just so damned cold here in Phoenix in July; we do want to go where it's much warmer!

    Ha, just kidding! It's amazing to me how large a lightning rod placement of our International Rally in Gillette, Wyoming has become. The reality is that Gillette is where our 2008 BMW MOA Rally is placed and we Zonie desert rats will be there!

    Not this time

    For the time we will have its too far and there is not enough non-motorcycle stuff for my wife when we are not at the vendors, seminars, etc. Looking forward to the NE and SE regions though.

    not going, but not because I don't like the site. I just have other plans. I'm going to be in Bend Oregon with family. The national is just a little to big for me, no matter where it is held. I will be having fun riding my dual purpose bike in Oregon. I had my big trip to Wyoming this summer and enjoyed myself immensly, including passing through Gillette. Hope everyone has a great rally and safe riding!

    Lodging May Be A Problem

    After visiting my daughter in Castle Rock, CO and doing some scenic riding in the Rockies, I plan to swing thru Gillette to take in the Rally on my way back to WI. Just don't know where I can stay, since the actual rally day might have to be a last minute decision.

    Why of course! I plan on travelling on many interesting roads before and after Gillette. Last year I began with the RA in Asheville and then kept on riding until West Bend. I am looking for a similar ride next year. At the rally, I'll volunteer setting up and registering members as I did in West Bend, take in seminars and see what the vendors have to offer. I am hoping that the entertainment is as great as what we had in Wisconsin.
