Chief Joseph Rally

6/12-15 John Day, OR

This longstanding rally run by the BMW Riders of Oregon attracts several hundred riders each year. Local speakers provide seminars and attendees get a map of roads worthy of a ride in the area. Because of the location and time of year, a mix of sunshine and thunderstorms are a given, so pack the rain gear. You don’t need a BMW to join in, just know it’s primarily a BMW crowd.

What began as a gathering among a few friends has turned into an event drawing thousands of riders. The event is open to anyone, but the majority of the riders will be on American iron featuring mostly cruisers and touring bikes. Registered riders get a t-shirt, tour book and bling.
