    Wow. Well, if anyone wants to go a different time (and for just the cost of gas), let me know.

    Are you organizing a scavenger hunt, will your get away include door prizes?
    While it is free to go to Hermann, I'm sure there has to be some advantage in paying the 65 dollars. Who can explain?

    It's also an extra $20 if you want to arrive one day early and spend the night camping Thursday before the rally.

    Shoot, ours in Crane MO is only $20 for the weekend, & that includes 2 GOOD meals!

    I resent that wino crack...a shoot,spilled the wine on computer again

    I do not have a bike yet(still lookin),but I plan to drive over and camp out for the night.Promised the boys I would take them camping and the wife loves going to the wineries.Cannot wait to hang out around the Beemers and get the wife interested in touring.Any lady bikers showing up I could use your help getting her interested.

    Alas, this does not seem to be designed for the old guys camping in the mud.

    You get the "opportunity to ride with members of the BMWMOA staff".

    May 7th - 9th is a little early in the year for me to travel that far on a motorcycle at my age. Maybe if they had it at the end of May I would have attended. Early May is too unpredictable weather wise for me to make a decision now.

    Sounds like a perfect place to celebrate Mother's Day to me. My bride would probably agree.
