    Before the National... 2012 Top Of Rockies Rally

    Just observed on the Colorado BMW Club web-site..

    The 2012 TOR will be a Friday till Sunday, before Sedalia! July 12 - 15

    This allows you to "cool" your seat before you "heat" your feet!

    I see this as the "Co-Mo two step"

    Go soothingly through the grease mud, as there lurks the skid demon.

    We're working on details to be announced soon, but it's not an outrageously long ride between Paonia and say, northern Arkansas or eastern Kansas....

    Tor

    No, but long enough so that I cannot go to it, as I did 2 years ago after the National. You see, I have to be on site early to set up the Beer Garden, and the million things that go with it. DARN !! I was so looking forward to the TOR after Sedalia. SIGH.

    yeah, that would have been better for me, too.

    I think TOR is my favorite rally.

    Interested in what makes TOR your favorite rally? I'm interested because I am trying to decide if I would have more fun at TOR or the RA national. Either way, we are going to CO this year!

    sigh..... too much jumpin' for us at that time so have to stick close to huggin' the Mississippi River down to Hannibal and then west. Looking forward to visits along the way though. And the Beer Emporium can count on us again. What a great time that was! and will be! - Bob

    Vance, do you think it possible that you may get more than an hour or two of sleep a day during the rally? All we're gonna need from you is.....

    If I was a betting man, I'd say one could count on 12th through 22nd of July being a week to truly call the 40th Anniversary a "Giant" of a memory.

    And with so many wonderful micro-breweries in the greater Kansas-Missouri area, the beer garden will be a hoot!

    Beer Garden

    Hi Vance:
    Won't make the chicken this year. Doing motorcycle marshalling for a very worthy charity.
    Maybe I could put you on QC at the beer garden, as thanks for your hard work at Bloomsberg? { Ha!}
    We do indeed hope that the beer garden will be a hoot !! Starting discussions right now with the rally chairs. I believe that Yeungling has made it that far West. Judging from the response { 60 kegs amber, 20 kegs stout, GONE} and my personal preference, that is a lay-up if we can make it work.
    Stay tuned

    Location, the town opening its doors, the GS riding in the area, the entertainment, the beer and the people.

    The Colorado people have their rally down pat and it shows.

    TOR @ Paonia, Co

    I agree with Ian, they welcome you back each year. The Rally site/park in town is perfect with walking distance to most everones needs. NO Wal Mart nearby! Take a ride to Crested Butte for breakfast... it dosent get any better! Great routes/riding in & out with music each eve... check the web site/pics.
    No Glass Containers/Bottles in park/camp area please
    Oh... and a cool stream running by to cool your feet, before you heat you seat across Kansas for Sedalia/MOA National... "The CO - MO Two Step"

    Travel'in Plans

    What are your TOR departure plans/destinations based on two or three nites
    enroute to the MOA? I like to arrive at the National on Tuesday afternoon.
