    check out the BMW owners of socal website (and join up! :lol3) I know they are organizing a ride. It will last two weeks, I believe.

    I will probably ride up for the long weekend. Leave here on a wed or thurs and blast back sunday. Did Redmond that way two years ago.

    Resurrecting this from a couple months ago. Just bough my tickets for the MOA. The one in Bend was a lot of fun. Not sure why they didn't do Bend, OR again. :norton
    Salem should be cooler at least.

    Best way is to just head out when you are ready, and then follow other BMW's in to campsites or motel parking lots.

    You will also meet some at gas stops and food stops.

    We have a our FRS radio channel number (10) on our top box, that's always fun.

    We are headed up the weekend before. Pay our respects to Idea Mom (and drop of the dogs) and head north. Then North some more. Need to go see the old homestead.
