    All Rally Locations By State

    Here are all the past rally locations by city name not venue up to and including 2012.
    If you happen to know the venue feel free to move the blue marker to that venue.

    I was just wondering where they've been in the past and felt compelled to share w/ those whom have also wondered.

    If this map exists elsewhere... Well... Now there are two. ;^)

    And that matters because? Population densities have historically been heavier east of the Big Muddy with a few exceptions, wouldn't expect differently for the MOA population.

    Looks to me like it's time for ND, SD, NE, KS, or OK. That hole in the map is pretty big.

    Now that you mention it, seems like I saw a map before. with the amount of Wisconsin riders in the Mileage Contest list every year, it may be the center.

    the research on this shows that the majority of members will only travel 500 miles or less to a rally.

    I have had a self imposed 500 mile limit since I got my first BMW about 15 years ago. Due to medical conditions at home and possible emergencies, I don't want to be more than one long day from home. I have only been able to attend 4 MOA Rallies and 3 RA Rallies. The RA Rally in Birmingham and this year's MOA Rally in Bloomsburg were both just barely inside my mileage limit. The RA Rally at the Biltmore and the MOA Rally in Johnson City were well under a tank of gas away.

    Again w/ the Research... Whose research?
    What was the error margin algorithm?
    What is the ratio of twistie roads vs. straight?

    Seriously though... I wonder why some were repeats?

    Every State has something cool to see...

    It was my Faux Pas.
