    Oil Changing Station at the Rally???

    Will there be an oil changing station at the rally, plus a place to dump oil oil??? If so where might it be located? Any place to buy BMW oil...I assume one of the venders might have something.

    TIA

    Yes, there will be an oil changing area with collection facilities. However, you'll need to bring your own tools. There should be vendors selling both oil and filters, although I don't know of any ones specifically.

    That's "sheep DANCER"! Don't forget that a lot of folks believe you are ok to change the filter every other time provided you keep to the recommended schedule. That makes a rally change a lot less work.

    if you change it before you leave, I can't imagine it needing changed before you return. Bowling Green to Gillette is not that far. mine only needs changing every 6000 miles. but if you pull up the site map you will see the oil change station
