V-Stroms Steal BMW GS Thunder @ State BMW Rally

Yes it is true and I have a pair of trophys for field skills to prove it!

We headed across the state 500 miles in 95 degree weather to the Washington State BMW rally and found a smattering of V-Stroms in both 1000 & 650 version comfortably encamped within the BMW rally park in Menlo Washington in cool 70 degree weather..Rally was FANTASTIC and the best I have ever attended for various reasons. They had all the bases covered with great food and endless coffee.
The fellowship was superb with seeing many old friends and making lotsa new friends.


Right off the bat was Mr. Ned " DRONE" and Ken, aka RapidRider on his 650 and of course my S/O on my VroomHilda1 DL1000, while I rode my 05 BMW K1200 LightTruck.

NO problemo, we mixed right in. Drone was a headliner in the OffRoad class of fun more than holding his own and rescueing many of the lost GS's in the blur of his fast and customized MelloYello 1000.

Meanwhile I was participating in the Field Games and stealing their thunder with capturing 2nd place overall since I had the S/O win 1 event handily against 5 men we were considered a "Split" talent Team so only awarded 2 place but took 2 of the 5 events in 1st place, Me in Slalom and the S/O in running to your bike,getting dressed , get on and start and ride your bike to the finish line - and the Slow Ride event in second place!

Pictures to follow soon!
