St. Paul, Minnesota
July 24-27, 2014

After 30 plus years of attending and participating in the MOA International Rally, in order to keep it fun and exciting for rally goers, Bob’s BMW likes to change it up. So for Bob’s 2014 MOA rally display we’ve decided we want to include as many of our customers and their bikes as we can!

Showcase Your Bike at This Year’s International Rally
If you are planning to attend this year’s rally, “Rolling By The River” in St. Paul, Minnesota, and your bike was modified, customized, refurbished, or restored (partly or completely) at Bob’s or it was ‘thanks’ to Bob’s great inventory of parts and accessories that your bike is what it is today please contact us as soon as possible to join in on the fun we are planning.

The plan is to rotate the display of bikes at Bob’s booth multiple times each day so that we are not holding any one bike hostage too long—we want you to enjoy the rally to its fullest and we know that includes having your bike available to go out and enjoy some great riding! If you would like to “feel like a celebrity” at the rally, simply provide with 2 good pictures of your bike (right and left), details of the work Bob’s has helped you with, your contact information including full name, phone number, email, and address, along with a short blurb on why your bike should be showcased in our display at this year’s MOA rally!
