    Yep, I've been at Finger Lakes for some stormy weekends, but I'm planning to ride over this year. I will check the weatherguesser, first. And second.

    How early to I have to get there to cop a bunk in a bunkhouse? The tent has been retired; it is inconvenient to have to call 911 to get up off the ground in the morning.

    My wife and I have hotel reservations. We don't camp. This will be our first BMW rally. We're watching the weather also and a family member issue that may cause us to cancel.
    We hope to be there. My new seat arrived for my GSA so we're ready for a multiday test ride.

    I didn't see anything on the website. Is there a daily entrance fee if you just want to come in and tour the vendors, etc. one afternoon and can't stay longer?

    Yes, can't remember how much.

    You have to park your bike outside the main entrance in a parking area & walk in.

    I have been going to this rally since '08 and have never done the ride on the track. Has anyone here done it? I don't seem to find too much information on how it is run. Do they pace you? I would have to think they would so people don't go into the corners too hot and what not.

    Any space in a bunkhouse?

    I got the word his week that all of the bunkhouses are booked by local clubs for Finger Lakes. Since I don't tent camp anymore, I guess I'll cancel any plan I had to attend. The arthritis has made it impossible to get up off the ground in the morning.

    Is anyone here in charge of their club's reserved bunkhouse who might be able to get me a bunk?

    If not, I guess I'll just take a ride around SE Ohio.

    Hey Jim;
    I sent a message to the group from the Beemer Barn in upstate NY to see if they have an extra bunk.
    I will get back to you.
