BMW MOA Rally
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 hanna.creekmore@bobsbmw.com 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!

Curve Cowboy Reunion 2014
Chattanooga, Tennessee
August 26-29, 2014

The Curve Cowboy Reunion began with a few BMW enthusiasts who met at Broken Bow, Oklahoma, over three days in September, 2000. They created the opportunity for owners and riders to get together, ‘in real life’, outside of the internet. The camaraderie and joy of the ride at that beginning leads us still, this year to … August. At the heart of the event was a BMW touring motorcycle, the K1200LT, but the annual reunion opened itself to enthusiasts on all brands and models of motorcycle. The CCR event promotes three fundamental goals: to present a positive view of motorcycling; to promote rider education and safety; and to make a positive impact by contributing to a worthy local group serving children to help them achieve its charitable purpose in the host community.

At the end of the summer, ride to Chattanooga, Tennessee and spend August 26th through 29th with us at the PREMIER, hotel based motorcycle touring event of the year. CCR is open to anyone, regardless of their preferred brand or model of motorcycle, but the event grew out of the BMW Luxury Touring Community (formerly the K1200LT Group at YahooGroups) and continues to be dominated by BMW touring and dual sport motorcycles.

Park ‘N Ride Rally
Santa Clarita, CA
October 11, 2014

“Wheels for Wings” is the theme for the 5th Annual Park ‘N Ride Rally where proceeds benefit Angel Flight West (AFW). AFW is a nonprofit, volunteer-driven organization that arranges free, non-emergency air transportation within the 13 Western states for children and adults with serious medical conditions and other compelling needs. AFW matches up volunteer pilots to people in need, enabling them to receive medical treatment and other vital care that might otherwise be inaccessible because of financial, medical, or geographic limitations. Charity Navigator has awarded AFW their coveted four-star rating for sound fiscal management. Participants in the rally will be given the opportunity to donate to the AFW both as an outright donation and via participating in our silent auction where all proceeds will go to that worthy cause. All those at the finish location turning in a score sheet will be eligible for one of our numerous door prizes while those in the Open class will be competing for gift certificates of $300 for 1st place, $200 for 2nd and $100 for 3rd.

The Park ‘N Ride Rally is an easy to complete day ride to some of the most interesting places in California and some surrounding states. We’ll have two classes, a Novice class where you only have to cover 100 miles and go to 3 bonus locations to be a finisher; and an Open class, which is for more experienced rally riders or those who like a challenge. We’ve designed this rally so it won’t matter if you are coming from San Diego, San Francisco, Utah or Arizona. You can start near home and won’t have to travel a long distance to complete the rally or be competitive.
