R100RS Rally ‘Gathering of the Tribes’ celebrates the 40 years of RS,

Spread the word don’t forget the T ~ Shirts preorder

We’ll try this again cause it was an interesting event last year with fires burning California, but with a slight twist. Come ride California's fine Sierra. Honoring the famed BMW R100RS on it’s 40th, to be held in Central Calif., Sept 9 – 11, 2016 in conjunction with the old ‘’Gathering of the Tribes Rally’’. ALL interested in Airheads and the Airhead Beemers Club are welcome to attend this rally. Beautiful riding near Kings Canyon and Yosemite NP. Fun and games for all.

Camping, Riding and Airhead Beemers fun & games, along with a good dose of ABC camaraderie. There is a nearby museum for the history & ecology of the giant sequoia forest, with exhibits & interpretive trails and I’m sure the G/Ser’s can find some dirt on somebody, somewhere. Day rides in dirt or not.
