This year’s annual rally hosted by the BMW Riders Association (BMWRA) will show that the national club known for being serious about riding can also be serious about fun. “Set My Soul Free” is the theme, and it sounds like they’re intent to have a groovy time. With all those great roads in that part of the country, how could anyone NOT?
