Be throwing my leg over the saddle and twisting the throttle
later in the week. Off to Hamburg, NY for the annual BMWMOA rally.. If you see me on the road - Wave!
Taken from the BMWMOA website:
WELCOME TO DAS RALLY!
This is the time of year when many of us are looking at maps, dreaming of destinations near and far and planning our routes and rides for the year. We want to personally invite you to include “DAS RALLY” in Hamburg in your plans.
We were thrilled when we first learned that the BMW MOA 44th International Rally was coming to Hamburg, New York, as there is so much to see and do in the Western New York and the Great Lakes Regions. A short ride in any direction will net a wonderful destination. To the west, beautiful Woodlawn beach on the shores of Lake Erie beckons. To the north is Niagara Falls (need we say more?) and the revitalized city of Buffalo with its beautiful new waterfront, theatre district, renowned dining and fabulous architecture. Venture east and visit the charming village of East Aurora on your way to the scenic Finger Lakes region and Letchworth State Park. Just to the south are roads that will take you through the picturesque ski areas of Ellicottville and Springville.
Then there is the Rally site itself. Situated in a mostly residential area, it offers rally goers a quiet, tranquil setting with close proximity to shops, restaurants, and services. Easily accessed from both interstate and major secondary roads, the first thing to greet attendees as they enter the Fairgrounds is a large water feature with a fountain. There is plenty of asphalt to support the center stand as you register in the Event Center. Campers will be pleased with the tree-lined, spacious, grass-covered tenting areas. For the adventure enthusiast, be it rider or spectator, this site also offers an incredible off-road competition area with great exposure to the camp grounds. If you like a little variety in your entertainment, the Fairgrounds also has a casino and a horse racing track on site.
When we had a chance to visit the Rally site at the Hamburg Fairgrounds, we could immediately see how the layout would lend itself to a beautiful ‘Rally Central’ area. There are several impressive, parklike gardens sporting gazebos, picnic tables, and Adirondack chairs, a pedestrian thoroughfare for the food vendors, beer and wine gardens, an entertainment area, and so much more.
We are convinced that all of this will make the 2016 Rally in Hamburg absolutely fantastisch!
DAS RALLY in Hamburg - something truly special in the works. July 14 – 16, 2016
