    Is the rally always in Redmond?

    Just bought a 2006 R12GSA recently and would love to do the rally thing, but just can't this year... Is the annual rally always in Redmond, or is it someplace different each year?

    Is there a place online where I can see where the rallys have been and where they will be in the years to come?


    Best,

    Tom.

    Best,

    Tom.
    Changes each year Tom, next year is slated for Pennsylvania. Usually 1 year out is planned and announced, so 2012 is unknown to most of us

    As for history... I have seen a list somewhere, but a quick Googling doesn't seem to turn it up... will keep digging...

    Used to be location of next years rally site was a super safe guarded secret until the Saturday night party of the present years rally. Now not so much. .... after a contract is signed MOA publishes it. No telling when it will be announced that way....since they negotiate these things a couple years out.

    List is as poster indicated subject to spelling errors, but at least from 1987 forward locations are correct.

    I know Chuck, but that's out in the bike.

    Tell Vince it would be a nice thing on the website so I don't have to go look in the bike.
