I do not know anything about that particular rally other than an opinion formed by looking at the Gallery pictures. I probably would not attend a rally like that and expect much more than loud motorcycles and crowded venues. I could be wrong though and freely admit that. I do go to Daytona's Bike Week but I only live a few miles up the road. Even so, one day a year usually enough for me.
I attend events primarily hosted by BMWMOA, either the national rally or those organized by local MOA chapters in my home state of FL and STOCs or RTEs hosted by members of ST-Owners.Com. STOCs I attend are usually sited in the eastern half of the USA. Also I've gone to one event this forum hosts in May each year, I would do more of that one except it's during a crowded calendar time for me. I ride to the event(s) and expect to eat well and ride good roads in that area and in the evenings to enjoy the caveman TV with 15 to 50 riders generally 35 to 65 years old and (usually but not always) beyond the partying stage of life. Lots of camping or sleeping in rustic cabins. BMWMOA rallies, the big ones, have some good speakers and teaching seminars as well as vendors aimed at sport or ADV touring crowd. I think it's just $49 to join BMWMOA but freely you can go to the website and click on Events to see events near you. ST-Owners is just a large association of riders congregating on a site that is sort of Honda ST1100/ST1300 centric but it is by no means limited to those motorcycles. There are no dues to join or attend STOC events. Good people and a really good forum.
