Here it is, The Plan for Riding Season 2017.
No advance tickets purchased yet but that's going to change as of this weekend....emails, Real Mail and a bit of PayPal should lock most everything in that's lockable. My only reluctance for going ahead full steam this year is that I'm hoping to mix a couple of other extended (longer than my typical 3-day weekend) trips in and one or both of them just may have to trump a rally weekend. You can bet that I'll do my best to squeeze The Full Plan in if at all possible. It will help that the rally weekends are biased toward the beginning of the season which leaves prime travel time, later in the summer or early fall for the bigger trips. At least that's what I've been telling myself these last few years.
We'll see how full I can pack it!

May 19-21 Madison BMW Great River Road Rally - Soldier's Grove, Wisconsin
June 2-4 Hiawatha BMW Club (MN BMW Club) - Money Creek, Minnesota (75 short miles away)

Labor Day weekend Wildcat Mountain Rally - Westby, Wisconsin
Sep 29 - Oct 1 Slimey Crud weekend
There just has to be additional long weekend in there somewhere for the Wisconsin Adventure Trail, plus a nice long week out West somewhere, hopefully making excellent use of this......
Wow! Good for you. I have big hopes of visiting with/riding with you at a number of these events. Thanks for sharing the dates.ReplyDelete
.. I'm in with four of these... :)ReplyDelete
Mike, your challenge should you accept it is to make more of these than Eric will.Delete
Looks like a busy year. I hope you'll be able to attend many if not all of the events.ReplyDelete
Sonja, there will be a great deal of effort put into following through with these plans.Delete
Wow, that is quite a busy schedule. Looking forward to all those trip reviews.ReplyDelete
Brandy, if....I keep my current employment, this list should be relatively easy to accomplish, at least based on life as I know it today. We all know that can change.Delete
All dates are noted. A man should always have something to look forward to.ReplyDelete
...and looking forward to we are!!Delete
