    2015 Rally Location

    I don't think this has been announced yet, but I read something about the upcoming elections that made me think a piece of info has slipped out. On this page:

    http://bmwmoa.org/TheClub/BMWMOAClub...Elections.aspx

    it shows that Mark Austin is the Chairman for Kentucky. There's never been a rally in KY. But then I read this post by Chuck Manley:

    http://www.bmwmoa.org/forum/showthre...l=1#post701035

    and he's indicating that the 2015 rally will be in Zone II or the Mountain States. A rally in Kentucky would be Zone III again. The new zone map is below.

    Question

    I read it as Mark is the Chairman of the Candidate Search Committee and is from Kentucky.

    Could be wrong?

    Kevin -

    I suspect you're right. I didn't think that made sense. Now back to your regularly scheduled guess!!

    Looking forward to the announcement of the 15 Rally.

    Lots of good riding in those states!

    And, if it is in Colorado, our own Steve Farson has published The Complete Guide to Motorcycling Colorado.

    If you are even thinking of riding there, get the book! It is an invaluable resource of roads to ride, things to see and places to eat!!!!!

    I went on a nice 11 day ride out to Top of the Rockies Rally (my first ride through Colorado) and Steve's book was priceless for helping me plan some awesome rides. Can wait to get back out and ride some more of his routes in the book. Watching his library of ride videos have been a good wintertime escape too.

    Thanks for the reminder about the videos.

    I will be spending some time in the next few days viewing them again.

    ......and it is a dry heat.

    Maps of the MetaPark facility can be found here. If you switch the Google map to satellite it appears there are some tree covered areas.

    Cool

    As of right now I plan to go and to camp. I think it will be a blast. I am going to make a big circle round trip ride. Different roads, at least some of them, but same idea as we did riding to Gillette WY. We took the "long Way Round".
