    There are two sides to any story. The truth is that without the BMW MOA paying tens of thousands of dollars for "GS" events at the national rally there wouldn't be a GS Giants. Back in the early and mid-2000's when GS riding was beginning to get popular the MOA was already building tracks for dual sport riding education. With the strong encouragement of one of our longtime great volunteers, this activity was enhanced and called the GS Giant - one or two were even held and paid for by the MOA in addition to the one at the national rally. It was because of these repeated events that GS riders were able to come together, form relationships, and then do a great job of creating the GS Giants.

    What has happened between the Giants and the MOA since then is story for another time and place. But, I can assure there are two sides to it and blame enough for both.

    I have an idea... in fact, dare I say, a stroke of brilliance. Everyone clearout their trasure trove of motorcycle related goodies and bring it to the rally in a U-Haul trailer. Then those that participate can exchange trailers and have a whole new pile of stuff to store away.

    Looking into Greg's garage is a rabbit hole that I am afraid to go down!
