    Details:
    Ever since a group of friends got together in Pennsylvania's Allegheny Forest, the GS Giants' annual event has grown into one of the year's most anticipated motorcycle adventures. Known as Mountain Mayhem, The Snake River Ramble, Back to the BIGinning, The Giant Stampede... no matter what name the goal is the same: celebrate the camaraderie and joy of riding together.

    This year, we are proud to announce the most daring change ever! With the MOA Rally and the RA Rally both being East of the Mississippi in different months, we are going solo and going West. This decision wasn't easy but after 8 successful rallies, your Board of Directors knew what to look for when choosing a location. With the assistance of our local resources, we found such a place. And as a bonus, it is right in the middle of two of the most scenic BDR routes (CO & UT)!

    As you ride in, be sure to join a Gypsy Tour, adventuresome rides that are led by your fellow Giants. They make the travel to and from the Go Big Rally even bigger fun! More information will come about these rides as plans develop.

    For this year:

    • 3 nights of camping in beautiful Southwest Colorado.
    • The entire 42-acre campground with tenting & RV spaces, a pavilion, hot showers, firepit, washer & dryer.
    • FREE off-road training sessions from the pros at BMW US Rider Academy (BMW Performance Center)
    • First class entertainment from Scott "Scooter" Nogrady and the E&O Medicine Show (Evan Firstman & Owen Balduf)
    • 3 dinners and 3 breakfasts prepared by our very own MMM Chef, Don Stover

      • The GS Hauler Award: to whomever trailers their bike the furthest distance from the rally
      • The Youngest GS Giant Rider Award: to the youngest rider or bike passenger

    Frequently Asked Questions:
    • Can I ship tires to the campground? Yes! USPS is preferred but you can use anything you wish. Make sure you put your name on the package so you won't lose it. The address is listed above.
    • Will there be Gypsy Tours? Absolutely! The details are being discussed and we will post a list of all the tours in our next newsletter.
    • Will there be guided routes? We will have suggested routes but it hasn't been decided if it will be guided or self-ridden.
    • I don't like riding off-road. What can I do? No worries, we will have several suggestions for all paved routes.
