    We still have a few Curve Cowboy folks, but the GS Giant crowd just got pissed off (at MOA) and departed.

    OK John, MAD DOG here, Beer Garden Chair for those of you that don't know. Going to wade into the swamp again. Can you give me a reason that the GS Giant crowd has "departed"?
    Might be able to offer some insight, or not, depending on the issue' Just curious

    For you 1st timers! An easy group to volunteer for is the bike wash. Ez-pez. Great chair couple too!

    My first Rally as well.

    Trailering (don't scoff) from Tyler, Texas Thursday. My '19 R Nine T is certainly capable of making trip but not sure if I'm up to it. Really looking forward to good time.

    Cool First time for me too.

    First time BMW owner (R1250GS HP) first rally. Only had the bike about a month. Joined BMW MOA and saw the National Rally mentioned and it's only about 550mi. away so thought I would check it out. Looking forward to the fun.

    Welcome to the Club! Your in for a treat, bringing a new bike to your first MOA... thats for certain.

    And since your only one month into this gig your credit card may not know when/why to jump out!

    That will come quite shortly after this Rally... where you can idea search.

    Make sure you identify yourself as a first timer at check-in... it proves to be refreshing.

    Day passes?

    I was hoping to make my first MOA rally for a day on Friday. It's only 130+ miles away so I figured a quick day trip was in order. However, with work and a funeral service to attend on Saturday, only Friday is available for my schedule. Is there any way they will allow me a day pass on Friday?

    From what I've read, day passes are only issued for Saturday. Is this set in stone?

    It's going to be my first rally too. Heading out in the morning from central AL.

    Going to do the deep dive too...camping on the grounds, taking my second training course (Authority School...did an MOA class at the BMW Performance School last fall, already set up to volunteer (and looking for some more opportunities) and staying through Sunday. Really looking forward to it. Spent the weekend doing maintenance (and synching my throttles...maybe I can find someone to go through the process with me to make sure I'm doing it right!) and getting the gear ready. It looks like the weather is going to be as close to perfect as possible. I am so ready to leave.

    Another first time attendee to the MOA Rally as well. Unfortunately, I'm not there until Thursday but I'm considering either coming a bit early Wednesday night or staying Saturday night as it sounds like a great time. I definitely DO NOT need ideas but I'm going to seek them out anyway. Meeting some local MOA'ers at a dinner Friday night and really looking forward to hanging out at the Beer Garden (I hope they've got Uber so I can get to and from the hotel from the rally) and riding some roads in the area.

    We're first-timers as well. Coming from Cincinnati Thursday. Haven't done any rallies before so the anticipation is high. Plus, my wife and I haven't had much time away for awhile so we're looking forward to it. See y'all Thursday!

    First Timers, Too

    Wife and I are travelling to the rally from southwestern Indiana on Thursday. It's a pretty short ride, but we want to see what this rally stuff is all about. Hoteling it in Mt Juliet, so I too, am hoping for UBER availability to take full advantage of the beer garden.


    We are really looking forward to the festivities.

    I'm trailering as well, but I can't ride two at a time! My first BMW MOA rally!
