Oh, and I almost forgot....as for your beer, sorry, they didn't have any Coor's light.
C'mon, it's only a couple hundred miles, there has to be a few teeth left on that sprocket, and some of your favorite people will be there.
FTR, Grainbelt and Hodag are exactly alike.
The first pm, you gave me crap for not starting a thread. The second pm was when you told me you were going, and I had already started the thread, and you have not gone to this rally in years Mister! Hence the edit.
Take Hwy 13 btw, that way you can avoid downtown Dells and there is a road to Chula Vista from 13 now, through the Golf course area . We can go see Dr Evermore's Sculpture Garden in Baraboo.
I went two years ago.. My fiance at the time won a year's membership to the RA.. (bitch)
The RA membership and she are both gone.. I kinda miss the RA membership..
Is this rally any good? I've paid money for it now.
I replaced that sprocket with a new one which I have autobiographically named 'spacely'.
You're definitely not going, right?
i haven't been to a dells rally since 2000
This rally used to be one of the best.. Between this one and the Iowa rally, the crowds were huge and both were great parties.. Both used to have around 1200 in attendance, and beer was included in rally fee.. But that was then.. The BMW clubs got gunshy on supplying beer (while many Guzzi Clubs still do it) and attendance dropped off..
Now you can fit the Iowa, Wisconsin, and Madison club's rally in one of the old Dells rallys and still have space left over.. I was told that it's because the crowd got older and fewer riders want to camp (hence the Dells GoldWingish BMW hotel rally)
I really don't know.. :huh It sucks that a lot of the folks retire to the rooms and have their own little parties rather than hanging out with the group outside.. And if it weren't for the fact that I live in hotels 1/3 of the year, Id' get a room, too..
Maybe it is age.. When I started going to BMW rallies in 1988 I was 24 years old and riding a 1985 K100RS, drinking beer like a fish at the rally... I'm now twice as old (crap) and I drank 5 beers over 2 nights at the recent Guzzi rally, and the beer was free..
If the age thing is the issue, when will the young riders start showing up at these events?? The 20 and 30 year olds are now 40-50's and rather than staying up all night drinking, we wake up several times to pee even though we didn't drink anything..
The rallys now are more about hanging out with friends and meeting new ones, and less about the whole big party..
That, and peeing at 4am..
I've been there twice since then... I'm pretty sure our reasons are very similar..
Peeing at 4am..
They tend to go once or twice, and then claim "been there, done that" as though somehow that's relevant.
The 4am thing though...yeah.
Man, when I was a young rally goer, I couldn't wait for the spring to start and hit the rally circuit..
If nothing else, we have Roy..
Trouble is, Roy always points at me and laughs.
Teabag his bike.. Or forehead..
been there done that
how many times do i have to listen to old guys talk about how their airheads are the greatets bikes in the world
My R1200GS is the greatest bike in the world, seconded by my R80..
6 to 9 hundred people is no small rally, but yes. Some of my friends do not go, as they consider it a Hotel rally, even though they built a very nice campground for us.
That is because you remind me of me, except with intelligence.
With intelligence. I think you are thinking of someone else there.
6 to 9 hundred peeps? I'll just sit at the back, quietly, and not get in the way.
Nobody said you had to listen.
If only they knew you, then they probably wouldn't talk to you at all.
