We've come together as the first BMW International Sister Clubs in the world, and this rally is how we celebrate this friendship. This year our clubs met in Loreto BCA and toured our way up scenic and adventurous Baja California, ending at the BMW Dealership in Long Beach California. From there the Clubs went to Joshua Tree for one last night of camping before the Moto Club QTO headed back to Mexico.
Next up for the Sister Clubs? An invitation to join the Moto Club QTO in October on their ride to the 2018 Mexican International BMW convention. This year it's in Oaxaca, with some of the best riding and scenery in all of Mexico!
