    Thumbs up

    Sounds good to me. I missed the Redmond Rally in 2010 but rode out to Shady Cove, OR in August of 2010.. 6450 miles in 13 days (including 1 rest day in Copperas Cove, TX). Loved every minute of the trip and will have more time in 2013 as I will retire 31/Dec/2012.

    3 weeks west

    Wouldn't it be nice to "line up" a "string" of Rally's before & after the MOA?
    Much like the Top of Rockies does each year. Handy for us east of the MS River
    when traveling the big country west. Maybe catch a Red Rock Rndevous or a
    Stanley Stomp the weekend before. Possibly the AB, Canada (for those that
    qualify for international travel ) Rocky Bow LF gig. Some kind of line up
    that allows travel progression, with time to "stop & smell the roses"; you get
    the idea?

    +1, Gunny; we fully agree with Jack H. on Oregon being a great choice for the 2013 MOA Rally and with Salem being the perfect location; The Stanley Boys will be there!

    Travel options when time is short.

    Those that don't have the time to travel both ways via MC should consider fly and ride, rally train, or rental. In the past I've purchased two bikes close to rally sites and ridden them home, sell it when you get home or add it to your collection. Where there is a will there is a way.
    Oregon has so many great roads and such geological diversity that you really should start your research now. Coast roads, lava beds, forest logging roads, scenic byways along rivers and streams, heck we even have covered bridges and Salem is close enough to Eugene that you can get some Tie Dyed hippy gear... Don't Bogart those Brownies.

    I thought you took your ball and went home. Ask the AMA to change the VMD dates, then let me know how that worked out for you. Better yet, quit whinin' !

    I will not stop there. I will try to convince everything motorcycle related in the U.S. to rotate around BMW MOA riders and once I have succeded in having the tail wag the dog, of course, I will keep you informed.

    Salem: 650 km, yep. Sedalia: 4000km, nope. (btw, I'm planning 18,000 km trip this summer so it's not just the distance)
