    Heh, no I don't even acknowledge that stuff as I read it! It had to do with his no-show in New Mexico last year...

    Re: Sure its a "in town Rally" BUT.........

If you let the fact that the rally is centered in Charleston deter you from coming, you will really miss out. Sure it will be different than other rallys, but hey! its in WEST VIRGINIA!
    see you there hank I will bring the flag and hope to camp nere the river leaving the 9th

    Can't wait to attend! Just bought my "new" '78 R80/7 and plan the trip from St. Louis, camping on campus. I have attended 3 Falling Leaf rallies in Potosi MO and enjoyed each one. Even when I rented a HD, so that I could arrive on a bike (surprising my good friend and instigator of my first big trip without the family). I figured if I was accepted on a rented HD, BMW riders pretty mush accept anybody!! :>)

    I'm heading up from Atlanta, but let me tell you about a very cool road if you're coming in on a GS from across Virginia.

    Get your map and find Blacksburg, VA... just southwest of Roanoke off of I-81.

    US460 heads west out of town... look for a little road called Craig Creek Road heading off to the right. ( N37?? 17.158' W80?? 27.665') If you reached VA42 you went too far (but that road will work, too.)

    Craig Creek heads northeast through a valley and turns to gravel... very easy, and quite a nice ride.

    You intersect with Hwy 311... take it north/west into the Jefferson National Forest.

    PHENOMENAL twisty road that you'll never forget.

    This picture was taken at the crest of the hill as you enter West Virginia.

    311 hits I-64, which takes you west to Charleston.

    Have fun!

    Hey Joe! Welcome aboard!

    You know anything about martinis?



    I think we're going to have to organize a forum meeting at the beer garden or something to put faces with all the names.

    I'm hoping to get there if only for 1 day...it would make an easy day ride for the wife and I and serve as an introduction to rallies for her....we'll see.
    Keep on Beem'n,
