    Practice/Qual is Friday AM. I'm heading south Thursday to set up camp in the paddock. Looks like I'm going to have to ride to Utah next summer if I want to know what this is all about :)

    Any places with outdoor dining? Tulliver can legally go inside with me, but the presence of a large dog sometimes disturbs diners regardless of how well behaved he is.

    I'm considering riding over to get fitted for a BMS, it's only 1.5 hrs from my house.

    Never been to any of these events, what are they? Just a hang out with other BMW riders and have access to vendors?

    No. You have that sideways. Straight follows:

    I am not willing to give up my ride in an endurance racing weekend at NJMP to go to Hamburg, NY and check out the MOA rally where it's close to me this coming weekend. If I want to know what the MOA rally is all about I'll need to ride to Utah in 2017 to attend one.

    Got it, I must have gotten excited and missed the whole point.
    Oh well, my English has been improving since the new prescription.

    Go to the MOA website and check it out. There are vendors, demonstrations, demo rides, concerts, riding competitions, etc. The best part, for me, is hanging out with 5000-10000 of like minded people, and a few fools! :-)

    Just so. Might even have a beer. Meet a big dog. And make 10,000 awesome friends. Learn something new about your bike. See some fabulous bikes. Experience unprecedented camaraderie. Might even get laid. Entirely up to you.
