Isn't there usually a theme to the rally. I seem to remember one year it was locations that had something to do with transportation and another year I believe it was the legal system. Does anyone know what this year is about?


2004 R1150RT 183,000 miles
1991 K100LT 128,700 miles
1982 R100RT 106,900 miles
Total 418,600 BMW miles

The cheapest thing on a BMW is the nut that connects the handlebars to the seat.

Something about "North American Safari" was mentioned in one of the reports.

I went out west from Maryland after one of the ironbutt rallies. I had a list of the checkpoints and if I could and it looked interesting I diverted a little to see them. One of the places that I remember was "Carhenge". http://carhenge.com/
