    Yeah, it's that time again!! Time for the ADV hooligans to take over the WI Guzzi Rally and make it our own!!! :freaky

    Ok.. That doesn't really happen but there's usually a pretty good turnout of ADV folks who enjoy this rally, year after year, and for a good reason!! Great location, great riding, and great people!! Average turnout is around 250-300 folks and it's typically 1/3 Guzzi, 1/3 BMW, and 1/3 Everything else..

    Visit http://www.wmgr.org/ for info, or ask here for better lies..

    What's not a lie is that pre-registering for $40 gets you a lot of food, camping, and liquid refreshments.. Last year they had a couple standard beers, and then rotated a huge assortment of micro brews all weekend long.. When you arrive, they give you a schedule, a pin, put a wristband on you and point you to the beer wagon..:evil After that, you're on your own, son!!

    If you're not a beer drinker, there's ice water and ever flowing sodas..

    And then there's ADV folks.. Sorry, they're part of the package.. :lol3

    And no, I'm not part of the WMGR club.. I don't even own a Guzzi right now.. Just passing on info on a good time..:wink:

    From the club's website:

    The 35th Annual Wisconsin Moto Guzzi Riders Rally will be held on August 2 to August 4, 2019 at Lake Joy Campground. All brands are welcome. Registration is $40 before July 1, 2019 and $50 at the gate. We feature Wisconsin's best grilled Klement's brats & Weber burgers Friday evening, pulled pork, & beef Saturday evening and deluxe continental breakfasts on Saturday and Sunday mornings. As always, Wisconsin's finest refreshments, including soft drinks, will flow from the artesian taps. The rally fee also includes tent camping Friday and Saturday. We also feature a 100± mi. 100% cash payout scenic poker run, a 50-50 drawing that has paid out enough for the winner to attend 10 rallys, and biker flicks w/cheese snacks in the evenings. Lake Joy is located in the heart of Wisconsin's "driftless" region - the area not flattened by the glacier. It is spectacularly scenic riding territory. The campground has clean modern restrooms and showers, and a 60 acre private lake (no fishing license required) with two beaches.

    This is a fabbo rally. It has all the best aspects of a big rally, and a small rally combined.

    I am not pre registering this time, in the hope that I can actually go to this rally.

    And you are a lovely man. I am hoping that because I didn't pre register, I will still be good to go.

    I know we get a few that leave the Guzzi Rally and head straight up to the Central Rally every year...

    Thought about it myself. :lol3

    Bah.. Happy to return the favor..

    That bald-headed old fart sure is turning into a fat f***.

    This has been the hi-lite of my summer for years. A good rally, good roads, good beer selection. Only bad thing I can think of is it is only three days.

    This is such a delima. Does this now mean I have to camp with the Guzzi people? Away from my people? Must I eat at the Guzzi people tables, not the ADV ones? I'm so confused. :norton

    I never preregister for a rally anymore. That's a sure fire way to get my vacation cancelled.

    Since it's the 30th Anniversary of this rally, I asked Guzzi Dan if there was anything special planned???

    You know.. Special beer, t-shirts, cheese, food, etc..

    Dan said something on the line of why plan something today that can be forgotten tomorrow.. I'm pretty sure that's secret code for extra cool stuff!!!:lol3
