I am looking forward to my first riding season aboard a BMW. My itinerary is as follows: MOA National in Lebanon, TN. (first timer), Glacier NP, Montana, Yellowstone NP. Wyoming, and lastly, a week in the Black Hills of SD, then back to Birmingham, AL. All previous touring has been aboard a Harley. My 1200 gs is something else however. It is just a pleasure to ride. Anyone out there have suggestions as to roads to ride and sights to see in these areas is most appreciated. Final question. Will there really be up to 6,000 folks at the national rally?
