    Riding to the rally

    Greetings. My name is Steve. I live in San Diego and am thinking of riding to the rally in great falls. Looking for anyone interested in riding together.

    Hi Steve. Two suggestions:

    1) fill out your profile a bit so others can see what you ride and what sort of things you like to do on trips. If youíre the type who likes to explore side roads and local attractions along the way itís no fun finding yourself paired up with a slave to high mile days

    2) SD has a very active riding community. Consider joining a local club. Itís a great way of making friends and finding compatible riding buddies.

    Youíll love the rally as well as the journey! Hope to see you there

    Those are good suggestions by Pete. This site provides some contact information for chartered clubs.

    The South Coast BMW Riders Club reserved camping space for over a dozen riders at the rally. (https://scbmwrc.com/contact-us-2/)

    The K1600 club is a bunch of great guys at our rally, mostly east coast guys, but Iím sure theyíll have the banner out at the rally. Mostly Navy divers like Duane Thornton, but donít let that scare you off, they are a great bunch and even let a little ole RT rider occasionally join their campfire circle.

    I recently volunteered for the 50/50 raffle, so out and about... but my HQ will be the Sweet Information Booth with Rhonda and the doggies. If Iím not there she can call me. This is how most people find me.
