BMW Motorcycle Rally Pin of the Day

This is the pin from the 1992 Iowa Rally, held on the second weekend of June by the Pure Stodge Touring Association.

I’ve been to seven Iowa Rallies and ‘92 was my first. In those days, the rally was held on campgrounds owned by former BMW MOA President Keith Dempster at Coralville, just west of Iowa City. The wonderful thing about the Iowa Rally is that your admission fee gets you camping, two dinners and unlimited beer. You get a plastic cup when you register and can fill and refill it whenever you please. Some years, they would take a keg on a golf cart and cruise the campgrounds to make sure nobody was thirsty.
