The rally site this year is a nice venue – the Deschutes County Fairgrounds. You can see the “Three Sisters” mountains ande Mt. Bachelor from the grounds.
The site changes each year and for 2011 it will be in Bloomsburg, PA - an easy ride from home.
After I got my fill of education and vendors I stopped in to see a crazy demonstration by a motorcycle stunt rider. Chris something or another is the stunt rider. A nice young kid who can do amazing things on a motorcycle - but not so sure of his understanding of mortality. He stunts on three different bikes - all BMW of course; a G450 X dirt bike, an F650 GS Dual Sport and a S1000 RR Superbike. There were a couple of "ah shit" moments, but it was all fun and no one got hurt. All of the burouts and power slides are pretty hard on rear tires.

Right out of a WWII Movie - but the real deal
