Official: Going to the BMWMOA International Rally!

No changing my mind easily now, I've paid my fee, airline tickets bought for the family, new tires on the motorcycle, ride announcements made in motorcycle forums, I am riding to the BMWMOA 2007 International Rally in West Bend, Wisconsin!

Although the route to be ridden to the Rally has not been finalized, it's going to be around 1100 to 1200 miles or so, one way. There's a couple of fellow riders who say they want to ride along so consensus must be reached before final route planning occurs.

Proposed Route, v1.

Overnight stops for the above route are Ft Leavenworth, KS for the first night (Steaks and Prisons!), Batavia, IL the second night and finally Milwaukee, WI on third night. The riders that end up coming with me will probably split off as we near Batavia and head their own way North towards West Bend. My loving wife and kids are flying to Milwaukee to meet up with me.

I am really looking forward to the trip, it'll be my first long distance trip (over 500miles) involving overnight stays. I think I now have enough luggage carrying space with the recent addition of a topcase for Maria. A few more prep work to be done but still plenty of time.
