    FAQ:
    Is The Rally limited to only BMW motorcycles?

    Not at all. All makes are very welcome as long as they are QUIET! Please be careful and courteous when riding in the area-- let's be good guests! There are some seasonal campers and community residents who will be using other areas of the park.

    I just want to stop by for a couple hours to check out the bikes and vendors,
    why do I have to register and pay?

    Events like our Rally take a lot of money to put on. Many thousands of dollars actually. Not to mention, respecting the hudreds of volunteer work hours.

    Also there is the concern about security. We need to know that the people who are there belong there.
    They will check for wristbands and anyone without one will be asked to register or leave the rally site.

    Is there anything I should know about riding in the area?

    Yes, watch for DEER, DEER and more DEER! The roads in the area are great but in many places
    the trees and brush grow right to the edge of the shoulder and you never know what will step out into the road!
    Also forget about the old axiom of watching out for DEER only early in the morning or in the evening.
    You may encounter DEER at any hour of the day or night. Also, watch for very SLOW MOVING Amish buggies! You will be upon them before you blink, especially near Smicksburg.

    How many attend the Rally?

    For the last few years, attendance has been right around 250. Some years more, some less.

    Can I arrive early or extend my stay?

    Yes, the park manager is normally very accommodating. Thursday early birds are welcome, but we'll be setting up.

    What if I still have questions?

    Get in touch with someone on our Contact Officers page and they will help you out.

    Does anyone know if it's a definite go? Last communication I saw from the club Pres was that the officers and board members were still trying to decide what to do because of COVID?
