Riding and camping Northern California and beyond, since 1965!
Registration for the 2023 Range of Light Gypsy Tour is now open!
This year we start at the Elk Creek Old Mill private campground in Elk Creek, CA!
What is the BMW NorCal Range of Light Gypsy Tour, a rally like no other! Why? Because this is no stationary rally. This is a riding rally, a two day event conceived for riding fans, by riding fans. Riders will be treated to exceptional road and optional GS routes, showcasing some of the best riding and scenery in the West. And be sure to bring fresh tires as you can expect to ride around 300 miles each day. Our destination? You won't know until the day before. This is a closely guarded secret - all we can tell you is the start point.
Riders can look forward to:
The Range of Light Gypsy Tour is part adventure, part test piece, part endurance event, part riding tour, part camp-out, and 100% fun. So register now and join those ready for the best rally in the West!
And as with all BMW NorCal events, riders of all brands of motorcycles are welcome to ride in the ROL, as long as the bikes are street legal, in sound working order, registered and insured.
Another great perc, BMW motorcycle owners are eligible for Club membership! This is a nod to the dedication of the ROL Gypsy Tour riders, and the riding and camping involved with this event is the foundation the BMW NorCal Club is built on.
