The problem with GMR and the problem with this date for BRPR will be the weather. The last few years the weather at GMR has sucked. It has varied in suckitude. But it has sucked. When the weather is good, there probably isn't a better riders's rally on the east coast. The roads in North GA, Western NC and Eastern TN are real good. Although not all are empty as the roads in WV.htheater said:Tim,
FYI, the Georgia Mountain Rally by the BMWMOA of Georgia usually gets at least 600 attendees, the BRPR was 60-70, out of which, I can count 6 that attended the GMR. There may have been more, and I know of 2 more that were planning on the attending the BRPR for the first time this year, but, with the "conflict" I am not so sure now.
With the Mayhem V conflict also, have you done an informal check on how many are planning to attend this year, or is it too late to change the dates?
BTW....if I have to choose between the GMR and the BRPR it will be the BRPR rally since it is K-bike focused and a better crowd!
I'm one of those folks who attends GMR. But I didn't for a couple of years. I went last year and all I got was a couple of hours of damp riding in. I dunno. BRPR had better weather last year.
I've honestly been wishing that the GA club would change the date for GMR. Maybe this year will be lucky for someone. Which ever has good weather, I'll attend.
