    Looking for someone from Grand Rapids, Michigan

    Hi - I am trying to find someone(s) who is going to the National from the greater Grand Rapids Michigan area. Don't worry, I don't want to screw up your trip by riding with you, but I would like to do a story about you for the Advance newspapers if you don't mind.
    Can be Grand Rapids, Wyoming, Jenison, Hudsonville, Grandville, Rockford, Comstock Park - you get the idea. It would give me a chance to brag a little about BMW's, the Rally and get you a little press.
    Please send me a PM or e-mail me directly.

    Hey Cliff-

    Have you checked in with any of the MI clubs? http://www.bmwmoa.org/about/clubs/regions/mi.htm

    Ludington probably is outside of your intended area. Hope you find someone closer.

    Sorry. He lives in NYC and doesn't own any form of transportation. But his future father in law is going to the rally. Of course, I don't live in the area, either. Sorry, Cliffy.

    I am going to move this thread to the Rally forum as it much more likely to get the response you are looking for.

    never mind Koop - I just came to the regrettable conclusion that I will not be able to attend the rally. I was gonna sneak down for Friday and Saturday, but there are other obligations with strings attached and I cannot make it.
    DANG the Dang dang of it.

    The BMW shop in Grand Rapids would be a good place to check.

    Cliffy did sneak out of Grand Rapids one time to attend a rounder round-up and it snowed so maybe it is best if he stays at home. That and the last he got with some of us I my ribs hurt for a week from laughing.

    Cliffy, really sorry I won't get to meet a fellow Michigander at the rally, especially one as ... well... notorious as you! Maybe we'll have a fall Rounder Round-Up!
