    2019 MOA Rally Photos

    For those of us who were unable to attend the 2019 Rally, I sure would enjoy seeing some photos from the rally. Iíve done a few searches and to my surprise I havenít found any photo threads.

    So if you got Ďem please post here.

    They pulled up while I was working the registration tent on Thursday.
    I thought it was funny the dog seemed to pose for me.
    Didn't get a chance to talk to the rider as they only stopped for a minute.

    Still...super great photo. Thanks for sharing it. Hopefully more folks will come along and post photos of their Rally experience.

    I talked to that guy at the concert. That dog was devoted to him. Said she rides tank to tank. He parks the bike and has to run and errand and shell stay on the bike (except to get some water from a bowl he puts underneath it).

    Please note that no Bier Garten clients' service was harmed while these photos were being taken; at times, there was a lull in the action.

    Cheers,

    Shade, water, electricity, hamster bedding and a great group of people.

    Wow! Great camping facilities! I really like the idea of not tent camping directly under the hot sun. I read that shower trailers were also on hand as well. Seems like the rally was well planned out and organized.

    Love the Pomeranian pic. He looks very content.

    Pretty good turn out it seems. I believe I read there were 6000+ attendees.

    We had a lot of fun wandering around the county fairgrounds, and we pitched in at various 'Volunteer' assignments. Since we're members of the AlaBeemers, we recognized Vance & Mari's friendship and their hard work at the National Rally, the Fontana Getaway, and at our annual Chicken Rally. Although we didn't win a grand tour, we sat in on various tour's seminars including: MotoDiscovery, Adriatic Moto Tours, and Phil Freeman's MotoQuest. They're all worth considering - get out there and ride the world...


    Craig Vechorik, Mr Bench Mark Works, had many machines on display including a WW2 Hack,

    He also displayed many other precious machines including this R32:

    Enjoyed someone else's German Postal Delivery Cycle too:

    Spotted this R100 outside the Expo hall, BOW WOW! Ignore the GS in the background...

    Enjoyed this Bloke's FreeForAll attitude!

    Here's the top of My Saddlebag - My Sentiment; I very much had a Scoot Bootin Boogie of a time.

    Thoroughly enjoyed our Hometown Hero, Microwave Dave & One Down and Four Up on the stage on Thurs; he's supported the Chicken Rally multiple times. He may not ride a Beemer, but Clay Swafford & Brian Hinton both do!

    Lastly, here's HSV-Karen after setting up our Glamper on Weds night!

    If your schedule didn't work out this June, I think the weather was just Fantastic and that made this particular rally a Big Success! Perhaps Montana will suit you better, but 6,018 folks might be hard to top. Jus Sayin!
    CIAO! HSV-Phil & HSV-Karen
