    2009 BMW MOA Rally?

    Here I sit with baited breath waiting for the announcement of my 2009 vacation destination.

    Hope it's closer to me.

    I'll be selfishm, had such a nice time when it was in Wisconsin last year. I hope it's closer to me again. SE would be great (planning a 10 year wedding anniversaty trip with wife) That would be a nice part of it

    I hope the site selection committee will consider availability of sufficient hotel rooms nearby to accomodate those who are not interested in camping.

    Here is a link to the information the committee uses for Site Selection.

    This has been a topic of much discussion. Contact the committee directly with your specific concerns.

    Release of Rally Information

    I thought yesterday at the MOA Board Meeting they were going to release it? Was I correct?

    Ben, you can have mine this year at Gillette, and I'll give you mine next year as well. I dont want that to get in the way of great locations, such as Gillette! HA!

    No, not ready yet to announce the specific location, but we have already indicated it will be in the Southeast section of the USA.

    South East or South-South ?

    You already made one in Canada ...
    How about one in Mexico ?

    Let me know if I can help.
    Chihuahua and the Copper Canyon is the closest, I guess.

    I am 100% with Ruben. It's time for Rally in Mexico; Chihuahua or Creel, hotels/camp

    "You already made one in Canada...How about one in Mexico?" Es verdad, Ruben.

    I've asked this question more than once on the forum: If we've held our BMWMOA Rally in Canada, aren't we long overdue to hold an International Rally in Mexico?

    Chihuahua would be a perfect location if we wanted to make the rally with an emphasis on hoteling it, which seems to be the opinion of most on this forum.

    Population of 682,500 at an elevation of 1455 meters and plenty of things to do.

    Day rides, the incredible market where you will be buying your goodies from either Mennonites or colorfully attired Tarahumaras, Quinta Luz-Pancho Villa's old house now occupied by the Museum of the Mexican Revolution. Viva Francisco!

    And, if you really wanted to cap off your trip riding home: Tie down your bike to a flatcar on the Copper Canyon Railway and ride coach to the Pacific Ocean. Bueno!

    If we wanted to base the Rally on camping, then Creel in Chihuahua Estado is perfect with a population of 4600 at 2338 meters of elevation. Plenty of hotels and already established camping at Complejo Ecoturistico Arareko; if more camping is needed there are plenty of ranchos available. If you're of the GS persuasion, which mucho of BMWMOA is, you will be in Heaven! Ride to Batopilas at the bottom of Barrancas del Cobre. If you're good enough, ride to Los Mochis!

    We've ridden to Canada for back bacon, let's ride to Mexico for the chicharrones.

    sure.... let's do it! Lots of camping space at the Larry's River base camp. We'll round up a few fellas with fiddles and stuff. Swim in the river..... go fishing on a local boat (s)..... lots of on road and off road options as well as some roads that combine both options. Dream big eh? -Bob (37 more days to Big Trip)

    Is it still the case that US Insurance is not valid in Mexico and you have to purchase a separate Mexican Insurance binder to ride over the border?
