Giant Dinner You worked hard, let's have a nice dinner to celebrate
Coffee with the Giant Share your experience with others who couldn't take part in the GT Giant competition this year
The GT Giant will be using many of the technologies available to the modern Giant today. Social media, Global Positioning System coordinates, and good ‘«÷ol map and compass skills all will be used in this competition. You need to be ready to compete not against the other Giants, but also against the daunting task of managing your energy.
You‘«÷ll be in an exclusive group who can find obscure locations, maneuver a motorcycle better then anyone else, and be able to humbly impart some knowledge to others so the future of motorcycling and the BMWMOA can be made stronger for the future. All this for only a few dollars, now what will you get in the GT Giant:
Giant Trip Answers to the questions you ask under the helmet Across America are roads, places and events that feed your curisosity, ignite your spirit, and capture your imagination. Each tell a story, with no two being the same. But this is not just a feat for the long-distance Giant, but also for the more focused and interested Giant in the border between Kansas and Nebraska.
Giant Competition Oh yeah, bring it.
This fun competition will occur on Friday, July 20 at the rally site and feature a motorcycle gymkhana. Giant Competition is where you show your Giant riding skills that you have been telling all your friends about. You‘«÷re going to love this action, and the chance to win points and prizes. And with a "Pro-Rider" setting the fast lap, if you can beat his time, even more prizes and points!
Coffee with the Giant Time to reflect and look to tomorrow
With the Giant awarded, now is the time to find out all the secrets of the successful Giant riders. And we‘«÷ll even bring in a special guest or two! The BMW MOA Foundation‘«÷s Saturday ‘«£Coffee with...‘«ō will be our venue to focus on the lessons learned in this competition for all of us to be better riders for the future.
All these events are possible only by some truly dedicated volunteer assistance. Recording the action, monitoring the Giant Competition, registering the Giant Trip photos, and being an active part of the ‘«£Coffee with...‘«ō is a huge reward in itself. Become a part of the Giant experience by volunteering and you‘«÷ll never be happier.
To volunteer, contact David Grant, firstname.lastname@example.org, phone: 580-301-7623
When you sign up for the GT Giant and worried about competing against someone on a bigger (or smaller) bike, no worries we got that covered!
Your bike will fall within Mouse (650cc or less), K9 (651cc to 1000cc), or Lion (1001cc on up) to make the competition a bit more fair!
I'll also thank Pandora's Motorsports for signing on as lead sponsor for the GT Giant!
The 40th rally, superstakes 3, and the new GT Giant competition could make this a great riding season.
Here's a picture of the area to be the Giant Track competition. Lots of asphalt to make some very interesting corners and obstacles to ride around.
After the enormous response, we've extended the registration for the GT Giant until 6 July. You can still jump on into the competition to win awards like a set of PIAA driving lights and Race Tech suspension upgrades!
