    It will be such a quick ride for me from New York. I don't know any dates for it though. I'm really looking forward to attending my first rally!

    Hopefully the rally won't be during the cross-country trip i'm planning for next summer

    The 2006 rally will be held July 20-23 at the Champlain Valley Expo in Essex Junction, VT, which is a suburb of Burlington.

    This is definitely going to be a "Riders Rally."

    2006 Rally

    Please have a little patience. There's plenty of time before 20-23 July 06 for us to share LOTS of information about the cool things to see and do in Vermont. We will encourage you to come early and stay late so that you will have enough time to do half the things you're going to want to do while visiting the finest motorcycle roads in the Northeast.

    If you have the time, there will be a BMW MOA Board of Directors meeting on 15 Oct 05 at the Rally site, the Champlain Valley Exposition in Essex Junction, VT. A site "walk about" will take place at 0900, with the open session of the Board meeting to follow. Any BMW MOA member or interested party is invited to attend.

    The Road to Vermont

    I just ran a MapQuest on the distance from Denver to Essex Junction.
    30 Hours!?!?!?!

    Egad! One-thousand-nine-hundred-five-and-four-tenths-miles!!

    For me that's about 7 days on the slab. That means I'll have to take at least two weeks off of work!

    Two weeks from work?

    Two weeks from work?

    TWO WEEKS FROM WORK!!!! YES!!!
