MOA After Ride
Another 50th Anniversary Celebration Ride Away
June 19 – 24, 2022
We are taking the week after the 2022, 50th Anniversary MOA International Rally/Celebration to continue our own BMWDFW 50th Celebration!
We will ride an area we don’t usually ride… the Mark Twain National Forest in Eastern Missouri.
An acquaintance from the MSTA (Motorcycle Sport Touring Association) lives in the area and sent us a file of secret roads that ramble throughout the four sections of the Mark Twain National Forest. Doug made me promise not to share the file, but I did a cut-n-paste of some of the best routes and added them to our itinerary!
The MSTA is hosting their annual Sport Touring Association Rendezvous (STAR)–Rally scheduled for June 19 – 22, 2022 in Cape Girardeau MO the week after the MOA Rally and we are welcome to join the fun.
There is a fee to attend the Star Rally but it comes with door prizes and a big banquet the final night of the event. (and best of all, discounted hotel rates!) You do not have to be a member of the MSTA to attend.
We will stay with them on the 20th, 21st, and 22nd and then head home from there.
Stay tuned for more MSTA info!
