The adventure of riding to a destination is high on the list, kind of a quest for fire. It takes a certain type of personality to endure the rigors of 2 wheeled travel and the constant companionship of mother nature. I've been happy,sad,thankful and scared half to death through the years of traveling the black ribbon of death, but that is the point in my world. Arriving at a place where like minded individuals gather is a welcome solace and the MOA rallies I've been fortunate enough to participate in are some of the best ever encountered. 25 consecutive years of making the run to Sturgis and Daytona are no match to the BMW events. My first MOA event was Redmond followed by Missoula and Lima. These rallies offer so many interesting things going on that it still blows my mind. Add the fact that the Marque is an exclusive small and above average community of intelligent individuals (check out all the seminars) willing to impart their knowledge to others makes me proud to be associated. When I tell/show future members the Annoymous book and the plethora of benefits of MOA membership they can't believe how well organized this group of people is. The cost of membership and rally fees are such a deal (compared to other marque events) that they are once again in disbelief that it is a non profit organization with mucho volunteers filing the void. I'm closing in on 10 yrs of membership and 41 years in the saddle and in the many moons passed have never run across anything that compares to the MOA. Everybody has an opinion (some folks 2 or more) and this is mine. A BIG THANKS to all who make this club work!
Hope to see/meet you in Wyoming!
