2020 BMW MOA Rally

Happy New Year and as such I would like to kick off a new thread for the 2020 BMW MOA rally coming up June 25-28 in Great Falls, MT. https://rally.bmwmoa.org/site-map/ There is an early bird discount going on right now. https://rally.bmwmoa.org/registration-open/

This will be a place where folks can post if they are going and perhaps be able to connect with others on their ride out or back from their homes.

I know many of us are going and for those new to BMW ownership and have never been to the rally you should think about attending. We always have a good time and the chance to meet other forum members has sparked long term friendships.

We usually have a group camping site just for K1600 riders and I will pursue that again this year. Our contact from previous years has retired from that position so I'll reach out for the new one. In the past we were able to rent a large canopy and some tables and have them installed in the group camping area for us. Everyone attending then pitches in a few bucks to pay for it. It makes for an easy to find meeting place for the campers and folks staying in motels.

So start posting with anything you want to say about attending this event.

I'll see you in Montana

I will be coming with both Dave's and maybe Bauke. Bauke needs a new hip. They haven't set the date yet.

We will provide $ support for a canopy tent.

Thanks for posting this Jim

Carolyn and I will be there, she'll fly out and I'll pick her up in Rapid City, SD. We'll do Big Horn, Chief Joseph/Beartooth on the way to Great Falls. After the rally we're heading north to ride Banff. After Banff we'll backtrack to Great Falls and Carolyn will fly home. We'll be 'motelling' it on this trip, but will gladly contribute to the tent/canopy rental.

Right now I'm riding out solo from Minneapolis. Would gladly ride out and/or back with others on a similar itinerary.
Currently staying at the Hilton Garden Inn.

As in past Rally's I've attended, I'll be volunteering at least a half day.
I don't have any firm riding plans other than riding the Going to the Sun Road through Glacier Nat'l Park

Will be great to meet up with everybody again!

Wendy and I are registered. We’re doing opposite of GunnerT, Grand Tetons, Banff, then back to the rally. Wendy has some Work related month end things to take care so we have to high tail it back. We’re in for canopy as well. Always a good time!!!
Great time to put names with faces!

Just registered.

The plan is to hit the Chief Joseph Rally in John Day, Oregon the week before and spend 4 days between, likely going through Lolo Pass and Beartooth Hwy....details TBD.

Who knows beyond that?

Thanks for posting this. I'm going to try to attend. I just started a new job so time off is minimum, but I could make Great Falls in a long day if I had to. Plus, I would love to ride hwy 12 into Lolo again.

I see this year's rally chairs, Becky & Corey Smith, are standing next to a GTL in the Rally site photo...
