    A trip to Barber is ALWAYS worth it but not if the tours are not running. Thanks for the heads up. When traveling during Corona Times I always check with places I plan to visit just to confirm they are open and any restrictions. Guess this will be SOP for quite a few months to come.

    For a few years now, I've noticed an increase at the National Rally of RV's with the bikes.
    The BMWMOARV'ers... and all seem HAPPY!

    I may be there someday.

    Hi Rich,

    What did you choose as your Toy Hauler? We have just retired and have been looking for a couple of years now, but still not sure. Class A or C with lift or trailer or Travel Trailer Toy Hauler. Have you looked at or posted on the RV thread under The Great Outdoors?

    Thanks.

    Edit: I found Rich's post from Nov 2018, looks like a nice setup. My preference would be to not sleep in the garage.

    It would be nice to take a diesel pusher to the National, with an HP2 in the tank.

    But I'm not acquiring any more stuff.

    I'm looking forward to my first MOA Rally next June and another trip to the Dust to Dawson Non Rally assuming the schedules of the two events don't coincide. Later next summer my Aussie Mate and I plan on the Trans-Lab , the Maritime Provinces, and the North Eastern USA.


    There's a very short list of rider's, from anywhere,
    aiming for Yukon Territory and Montana in June... then later that year, Newfoundland/Labrador and the Maritime's with the NE US included for good measure!

    It's just one day at a time, but still impressive.

    Yep, if they've forgotten to take "Rocky" WITH Bullwinkle, over to the Little Belt mountain range... he's sure to trot back for his buddy!

    I've just had a morning coffee induced good thought.

    Ten months from now, the National Rally will have just ended... and a bunch of us will be out riding Montana.

    Please let the fellow dream a little Paul.

    Just four and a half months ago when the 2020 Rally was cancelled/postponed... June of 2021 seemed an eternity!

    And as this hellish summer of 20 comes to a close, there's light at the end of the tunnel. I hope.

    So, what happens at these “rallies”? What is the draw?

    Or is it primarily an excuse to go on a long ride?
