Three V-Stroms at the Finger Lakes BMW Rally

Just got back from the Finger Lakes BMW Rally at Watkins Glen, NY. Nice event, which, unfortunately, got pretty much wiped out be Mr. Ernesto.

I didn't get there 'till noon Sunday 'cause of the hurricane's remnants which made riding up from central PA on Saturday impossible.

Nice rally with a 'homespun' feeling to it. I was there as the guest of a BMW rider friend.

BMW riders ARE different. My criteria for judgment - of the hundreds of riders I saw there, I'll bet I didn't see more than five or six who weren't wearing riding pants. Check out any other rally and compare. Jeans, jeans, jeans, riding pants, jeans, jeans, jeans.

Maybe it's only because they have enought money to buy such an expensive bike, they also have enough money to buy riding pants... but I suspect average intelligence has something to do with it also...

Sorry to profile... just my thoughts.

BMW riders and guests only at the rally. Three V-Stroms (that I saw). Handful of Goldwings. No Harleys. Nice event, I'll go next year.

I'd hope the BMW riders don't read this post first though.
