    Texas - 1
    Washington - 1
    West Virginia - 1
    Wyoming - 1

    Canada - 1

    25 of our 50 states have seen a BMW rally (plus one in Canada....have we annexed them yet?!).

    No pattern showing up yet, Robert, but somewhere out in cyberspace a UFO conspiracy theorist is entering this data into a matrix. The truth is out there.
    Due to the high price of jet fuel, the black choppers are still parked in my back yard.

    Illinois did at least get one!

    But looking forward to the west coast in 2010!!!!

    Kbasa's back yard should be almost big enough.
    I used to post here, but now I don't.

    The last annexation attempt didn't go too well, you burned York, we burned Washington, then we went home. (Must have the beginning of hockey season).......LOL

    I have enjoyed my sojourns into our big neighbor to the north, having breakfasted several times in Sault Ste. Marie before heading out on 17 with the R1200RT, or having trailered my boat to go fishing out of Kenora at the top of the Lake of The Woods area.

    The thing about traveling is, you never want it to end and you can't wait to get home.

    I am thinking AR maybe SE Mizzou? Of course if we had it in upstate NewYork it would give me an excuse to go there. I have one quick question. Why July?

    Hmmm, this might help in identifying the general area where the rally will occur, but maybe not the region/year issue:

    WI rocks!

    WI does have the most by number, most dedicated, and longest riding BMW riders in the U.S. (according to riders providing data for the mileage contest anyway)! Maybe a permanent rally site in WI?

    OK, only kidding, don't freak out...I really do want it to move around so I am encouraged to discover other beautiful areas/states.

    I was in TN and N.C. (Great Smokey Mountain National Park, Hwy 129, etc.) this summer and it was fun and wonderful riding. I'm definitely going back for the rally.
