BMW Motorcycle Rally Pin of the Day

Why? Because I’ve blogged all of the other motorcycle or trip-related pins in my collection at one time or another, so why stop now?

This is an accumulation of pins that started in 1986 at the BMW MOA Rally at Laguna Seca Raceway near Monterey, Calif. – 28 years in the making.

It includes pins from the 22 BMW MOA rallies I’ve attended plus 10 more other BMW MOA rally pins that I picked up over the years. There are 5 Return to Shilo rally pins, seven Falling Leaf Rally pins, and seven from the Iowa Rally.

Also represented are pins from Wilkerson Pass in Colorado, the Little Big Horn Battlefield, the Experimental Aircraft Association Museum in Oshkosh, Wisc., tent dryingIndianapolis MotoGP (3), Route 66, Hoosier Beemers Rally (3), Mt. Evans, Colo., the AMA Life Member pin, Patriot Guard Riders, three of the four Daytona Beach Bike Weeks I’ve attended, the Nebraska Huskerally, the European Riders Rally in Burkesville, Ky., the Mother Cabrini Shrine in Golden, Colo., and on and on…

In the meantime, the 10-year-old Galyan’s Special Edition Eureka tent that I packed wet yesterday morning is draped over the lawn tractor and generator in the garage trying to dry out even though the humidity is about 100 percent, due to a passing line of storms.
