MOA vs RA
Iím a new member of both organizations. I attended both rallies, the MOA was in Johnson City, TN and the RA rally, Cannon Valley, WV. The MOA rally had 9,000 attend and the RA rally 1,500. I enjoyed both, the rally organization and vendor participation was better at MOA rally and the seminars were better at the RA rally. The Vice President (Pieter de Waal ) of BMW Motorrad spoke and answered questions at the RA rally.
The RA forum is hardly used, and there members like things the way they are. The MOA is more questioning of it self and strives to become bigger and better. To me this is the biggest difference between the two.
PS I drive a 06 K1200GT and get a lot more information about how to improve my bike on this forum than either the RA or MOA forums.
