    Mid- Michigan here

    Ugh, winter. I guess I'll spend my down time planning rides for next year.
    Anyone planning to attend the Mini-rally in Sturgis (MI) in May?

    Yeah, I like to ride over on Saturday, spend the night in the tent, and then hurry home to a hot shower!

    No need to rush home for a hot shower the showers at the campground are pretty steamy.

    FYI, as of last weekend the Mini-Rally planning has begun.
    Life is a journey..enjoy the ride.

    Great! I look forward to attending. I missed last year because my son was born a few weeks earlier.

    I live across town from the Rally site. Out of curiosity my wife and I pulled in there a couple of years ago on our H.D's and the way people stared at us, you would have thought we had three eyes! We still chuckle about it.

    I have an '06 RT now so we will try it again. I'll get some BMW stickers for my wifes Low Rider so she can get in

    We might have a cook out that Saturday for any one that is interested. If we do, I'll post it here.

    Looking forward to meeting you folks.

    Think Spring!

    I went in '06 and '07. I missed the '08 rally mostly due to bad weather. I had limited vacation time and didn't want to spend it in the rain. I plan on attending in '09, though. It's always been a good time.

    Don't really think you'll need stickers for the Low Rider. I've never been to a BMW rally that didn't welcome all 2 wheelers. Like Josh, I didn't make it last year but hope to do better in '09.

    By the way, welcome to the forum and look forward to seeing you ... maybe in Sturgis is not sooner.

    Agreed. You may get a few wayward glances from a few folks, but overall, all motorcycles are welcome and greeted warmly.

    Thanks,

    Good luck with that! What bride wouldn't put a rally before a wedding?!
    No date yet, as far as I know. Typically it's the first weekend in May.
