    Rally Parking

    I will be riding my R90 to and camping on the rally grounds. My wife will arrive in our minivan & will join me.

    I am unable to find a designated parking area on the rally map for her to park the minivan. Have I just been unable to find parking on the rally plan map.

    Car parking is directly northwest of the beer garden/entertainment area.

    This is my 1st rally.

    I have a hotel reservation so where do I park my bike when I get there?
    Same area as the cars?

    Thks

    Pretty much whatever you like. This is a BMW motorcycle rally

    Unless signs tell you not to!

    I know nobody ask this before, I may bring my car with roof top tent or rv, I know the rv part but what about car with a roof top tent?
    Do I have to park with cars or can I find spot where a tents are set up?
    here how the set up looks like

    Cars must park in the car parking area. If you are using it as an RV you must park in the RV area.

    EDGE of parking lot with grass behind wagon... with a field of tents/bikes just beyond.
    Handy to have "support vehicle" right by the camp site. Like a living room with AC!

    And to add to Voni's comments... this joint is so big, cycles/bikes will be moving around EVERWHERE & ALL THE TIME. It appears to be 1 1/4 mile between camping
    at NE corner (club camping & general) and the Sherpa/special needs/GT Giant area near SW corner!!!
    You'll say "I'll walk over a see my friends"... about once; then by day 2 its "day riding
    on the rally grounds"! Hope its not so hot I gotta ride to the beer tent!
    And those trams.... never seem to pass a bathroom! THEY WILL BE PACKED!
