2018 Range of Light Gypsy Tour – Labor Day Weekend

August 31, 2018 - September 3, 2018

It may be a late idea but we are planning on attending the above Nor Cal BMW Rally over the Labor Day Holiday. The event consists of showing up at the starting point and then getting the 300-400 per day riding plan with both on and off road routes for a 2 day ride with 3 days of camping. I have been assured that the fires will not be an issue with the routes and they have back up plans if needed. The start this year is the Napa Vally Expo center. We plan to leave Thursday and return Tuesday as no one is sure where we will end up on Sunday night.

Details are at the bmwnorcal.org site.

If anyone is interested in attending let me know and we will see what works out.

That’s right, it’s time again for the 28th Annual 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 true riding fans, by true 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 between 300-400 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:

Two days of awesome riding, destinations unknown.
3 nights grassy camping.
Hot showers.
Catered dinners Saturday and Sunday Nights.
Cold drinks.
Poker Run.
Fun door prizes and sponsor swag.
Sag wagon to haul your gear (soft luggage only).
Shared Rever route files/downloadable .gpx files.
Rally Shirts, pins, and stickers.
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! This year we start at The Napa Valley Expo, in Napa, CA.

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.
