    Chief Joseph

    All right peoples, who's going to the rally this year? I'm stoked as it's my first - so be gentle . I'll be camping so itÔÇÖs a good excuse to bust out my old back packing gear since it packs up smaller.

    Chief Joseph

    The Chief Joseph Rally in on the wish list again this year. It's been a loooong time since I went to that one. Would you believe I last attended when it was in Sisters, Oregon? I'm really looking forward to it, having met two of the sponsoring club members on the way home from the 49er. Great guys, both!

    I'll be there. Haven't been able to make it for several years, much to my regret, as it's one of my favorite regional rallies. Also, I'll be putting on my Vice President hat and hosting a "Mini Town Hall Meeting" Saturday evening after dinner for any that want to discuss the BMW MOA and the BMW world in general.

    you will enjoy the rally!!!! this will be my fourth ralley at john day and have always enjoyed the trip and once there i enjoy meeting new people, if your camping you might want to bring some shade theres only 1 side of the camping area that has some nice trees the main area is more open but the pavillion is open all day so you can get shade there, beemer beat just arrived and jay said they are improving the dinners and entertainment, ive never had any complaints with the food at the rally but obviously some have. the towns people are great and very willing to make sure you have a good time by going out of there way to help you with any problems. enjoy yourself there.

    I see you're from Pueblo West. We'll be in Florence next month. Track me down at Chief Joseph. As I sais, I'll be on a silversmoke R90S.

    I'll do my best to find you. Deb Lower and I will be hosting a get together on the 2010 MOA National Rally sometime during the weekend.

    My favorite "after work" ride goes through Florence. Lots of really nice rides right outside my door.

    See you soon!

    I'll be leaving Wed am and going over Carson Pass to 395. Then up to Alturas for the night. Arriving John Day on Thurs afternoon. It's been a long time, the last Chief Joseph Rally I attended was in 1983. Aynyone with a similar route? Will I see any of you along the way?

    Smile Chief Jo was a blast

    Thanks BMWRO from BMWFreeRiders...we had a blast...over 700 participants...food was great and fast AND seconds....great rides...(oops, I'm sorry...for all you folks who've never been to John Day, I would highly discourage...the roads are twisty...I saw AT LEAST two cars every day...and I'm SURE there is lots of other bad stuff that would prevent you from having the wonderful time that you deserve)

    See you next year!!!
