Executive Vice President of Global Sales and Marketing at BMW in Munich, 1971-74, Bob Lutz has been contacted and has agreed to provide a DVD presentation covering his involvement in the R90S program, if he is not able to attend in person.

Every year, tens of thousands enthusiasts join the AMA and the Motorcycle Hall of Fame Museum, and nearly 1,000 independent vendors at vintage motorcycling’s biggest bash.

This year's "featured marque" is Indian motorcycles!
There is much, much more information available at the AMA website.

You’re all invited to enjoy “Rollin’ by the River.” Roll on in to Minnesota’s capital city, and visit St. Paul. It's been said of the rally this year:
“… where the beemers are strong, women good looking, and Rally above average!”
Minnesota is best known as the Land of 10,000 Lakes, but is also known for one superior lake and a great river. If you’re joining us from any direction, the Lake Superior Circle Tour is a ride not to be missed. Visit Aerostich on the way to or from, or meander along the “Mighty Mississippi” and join in the Great River Challenge.
The Minnesota State Fairgrounds roads are all paved, and there’s plenty of shade and grassy camping areas. As always, we will have music, seminars, good food, plenty of vendors, and oh, yes….beer. St Paul is the home of Summit Brewery, and who knows, we may even have a “beer bus tour” to chauffeur you around to some local micro-breweries. As always, RPU courses will be offered on site, as well as some GS Giants activities, Camp Gears and more.

The free Swap Meet on Saturday & Sunday gets bigger and better every year. Clean out your spares, find what you need to fix your bike or buy another one!
Sunday is the official Antique Bikes on Main event, when main street literally fills with vintage bikes of all makes and models. Not everyone rides a Harley. Come look for the Norton 750 Commando, Honda 400 Four, Ducati 250 Mach 1, Benelli Riverside, Hodaka Combat Wombat or whatever YOU used to ride. Maybe you still have that old Panhead or 750-4 Chopper. Bring it out. It doesn't matter if it is a perfect restoration or a flogged, worn out "great old bike" that needs everything. Gasoline Alley hosts all varieties of race bikes on Sunday, with legendary tuners and racers mixing in the crowd at past years. Any race bike is welcome- dusty, dirty, running or not, from a dirt bike to a two stroke drag bike to an AHRMA or AMA roadracing bike. Somebody will love to see it and share stories that usually start with, "I remember the time when I...." As always, it's all free for attendees and participants- NO admission, registration or fees to participate with your bike or bikes. Just bring it out, park it and have a great time.
It's motorcycle parking only on Main Street, especially on Sunday with designated areas welcoming motorcycles of specific vintages. If you come on four wheels, with or without a trailer, there's plenty of parking on the side streets around back.
