Friday, September 2 through Monday, September 5, 2016!
This is the one, The BMW Motorcycle Club of Northern California's Range of Light Gypsy Tour! All we can tell you about this year's route is that we are starting our ride at the Mendocino County Fairgrounds, 14400 CA-128, Boonville, California.
Once you arrive and register our next night's surprise destination will be revealed, with a Saturday Rally Route sheet that includes a MAIN STREET ROUTE (with a built-in WIN $$ Poker Run) and an optional GS LOOP. GPX files will be available at registration for those using a GPS.
This is not a large single group ride; riders ride with whomever and however many friends they want to. We can ride anywhere from 200 to 350 miles in a day, along California's most scenic and obscure back roads: from winding USFS roads in the Sierra Nevada foothills to the spectacular Klamath River Canyon; from the Central Valley to the Trinity National Forest or Forks of Salmon or out to the Lost Coast; maybe up over Sonora Pass and back via 8,730-ft. Ebbetts Pass; possibly along the Kern River through Sequoia National Park.
Arriving at our campsite Saturday and Sunday nights, we'll enjoy hot wholesome dinners catered by a local chef. Enjoy hot showers before or after meal time. Limited beverages will be available from our sag wagon. Saturday night, we pick up the Sunday Rally route sheet, with an entirely new route that very possibly could take us back across California.
Bring your Zumos and Navigators. Make sure your tires have plenty of sticky tread. Load your soft luggage and camp chairs into the sag wagon (no hard panniers in the sag wagon please) and get ready for two great days of riding with three nights of camping. Welcome to the 2016 Range of Light Gypsy Tour!
We welcome all women riders with our third annual Ladies Happy Hour on Friday night at 5:00 PM.
Save $10 and register as an "early-bird" by Friday, August 19, 2016. Online registration closes Thursday, September 1, 2016. On-site registration opens at 3pm on-site at the fairgrounds, Friday, September 2, 2016.
