What it is: The is an annual rally, open to everyone interested in riding in Latin America -- both those who have already done it and those who think they might want to (anyone who has never ridden in LA should be in this category). We get together to discuss past and future rides in Latin America, eat some great food and drink some great drinks. We also manage to get in a little riding, both on and off road. It doesn't matter what kind of a bike you have, or even if you currently are bikeless. Come and enjoy!
DATES: July 27-29
PLACE: Max's Resort and Strip Club - That's in Wisconsin for the uninitiated - More details to follow

Here are some important dates to help with your planning:
July 19-22: BMW MOA International Rally, Sedalia, MO (http://www.bmwmoa.org/rally12
July 23-29: EAA AirVenture in Oshkosh (http://www.airventure.org/
July 27-29: ALARR V at Max's Resort and Strip Club
You'll notice that BMW calls their get-together a "Rally" while ALARR is a "Rallye". That's an important distinction as it notes the difference in levels of sophistication between their rally and our rallye.

Who the hell knows
(Well, I know now. John is in Caracas recovering from a broken leg so he will probably not make the rally. But, knowing John .... And, he will have a hell of a lot of good stories for us next year.)
