COVID-19 Impact

The current situation puts the 49er at risk of being cancelled. The current restrictions in place if extended through may will require it or we may have to cancel due to low registrations. We will be monitoring the situation and making decisions as more information is known by the end of April.  We will of course make full refunds to everyone if we  cancel the event. Additionally if we do not cancel but an individual is sick or does not feel comfortable attending we will provide a full refund less the Tshirt and dinner price if we have already confirmed the order. 

It's time again for the best BMW motorcycle rally this side of the Mississippi

The 49er Rally is the BMW Motorcycle Club of Northern California's annual Memorial Day Weekend rally, with 48 years of tradition that predates the BMW Motorcycle Owners of America's (MOA) National Rally. (In fact, the first MOA Rally was held at our 2nd 49er Rally!) This is one of the West's premier BMW Rallies!

As always, Rally goers can expect 4 nights of grassy tent camping, optional RV camping with water and electrical hook-ups (limited spaces available), hot showers, cold drinks, great food, clinics, speakers, vendor displays, prize giveaways, and the camaraderie of lot of fantastic people from all over! Attendees will also have great local riding opportunities including a Poker Run, a self guided Historical Ride, and self guided GS and road rides. 49er attendees can also sign up for optional GS adventure riding clinics with Pat Jacques leading a fantastic Ladies Clinic and trail ride or Black Swan Moto bringing their team to teach a GS clinic with a trail ride open to all. Space for the GS clinics is limited and fill up fast. Click here for all the details. 

This year we've thrown in a little something fun. This year's "early bird" registrants get a free commemorative 2020 49er belt buckle so be sure to sign up early and to receive this cool gift. Early Bird registration ends April 15th!

And of course we are offering our great Saturday Night BBQ dinner, but this year we've upgraded the menu by BB's Catering. And for returning 49er attendees, you know this dinner sells out to a packed house so make sure you get registered early! This year the dinner includes these great choices: 

  • Pork Tenderloin with a bone dust dry rub, topped with pecan whiskey sauce
  • Jerked Chicken with a mango salsa
  • Portabella Mushroom Ravioli with a cream spinach sauce (vegetarian)
  • Spring Mix & Romaine Blend Salad with tomato, cucumber & shredded carrots- with a choice of strawberry vinaigrette or buttermilk ranch
  • Roasted Red Creamer Herb Potatoes
  • Individual Blueberry & Peach Cobbler with vanilla bean ice cream

Ride an Airhead? This year look for a beefed up Airhead presence as the Airheads Beemer Club will be moving in to Airhead Central. Bring your airhead or just questions, there's always some sort of unofficial airhead clinic or repair going on...

If you are a vendor or speaker (or would like to be) and have questions about the 49er Rally, please click here to email Greg Hutchinson, the 49er Chair.
