    But to do otherwise would render the club the eastern US BMW Motorcycle Owners of America. Attendance of 5000 vs 8000 isn't a bad thing when the rally is appropriately planned and has an appropriate budget.

    Wow, I'd love that....being in the Chicago area.

    I'm not going to go off on a tangent here and suggest locations. I'm sure they have a team that bats these ideas around more than they care to admit.

    Since I travel on working assignments about 150 days a year, I'd gladly offer my services to scout locations if my phone ever rang. I believe the success of any organization is directly related to its being aware of the personnel assets/human resources it contains.

    That's all I got.

    +1 and yes I have been informed the rally map plan has been changed since last summer. Sorry.
