2018 BRPR May 17th - May 20th

BRPR May 17th - May 20th, 2018
Rally location - Wattstull Inn
(arrive Thursday May 17th, leave Sunday May 20th)
Blue Ridge Parkway Rally

Just north of Buchanan, VA
https://www.google.com/maps/place/Wa...!4d-79.6596799

Blue Ridge Parkway info and maps
https://www.nps.gov/blri/planyourvisit/basicinfo.htm

Book your reservation on line
http://wattstullinn.com/

BOOKING ON LINE WILL BE OPEN STARTING TOMORROW JANUARY 17, 2018.

NOTE: THE ROOMS ARE BEING HELD FOR US UNTIL APRIL 17th - AFTER THAT THEY WILL BE AVAILABLE TO ANYONE.

Telephone number 540-254-1551 - only call them if you have a problem making your reservation on line - ask for Ann.

Rooms are 75 per night + taxes = $83.50 includes continental breakfast.

When you get to their web site click on reservations - use the calendar for arrival and departure dates.

You are going to see a code box - type in BMW - upper case otherwise it will show no rooms available.

Then you will see the room types available - click on the room you want - then it will have a drop down box to select a room number - so if you like a particular room you can get it - if it is not in the drop down box it has already been taken.

You must check the box for the cancellation policy - please just give them as much notice as possible if you need to cancel.

Must enter your credit card - they will not charge the card until arrival date.

If booking for 3 days you will be charged for 3 days.

Don’t know what BRPR is? It is us, the Collective. All of these IDs and passwords transformed into real people, riding and laughing for three days or more. Rain or shine. Or snow. If you don’t have a good time, sell the bike.

View from the Wattstull motel. On site restaurant is operating again. Walk to snacks at gas station (with limited beverages), watch the Weather Channel (unless we're on DirecTV) , or make a cell phone call.



Alternate Lodging (info only) :
Super 8 – Bedford(10 miles up and down 43 to Bedford. Left at the light.)
Days Inn – Bedford (10 miles up and down 43 to Bedford. Right at the light.)


NOTE: i-BMW.com is not an official sponsor of any posted events. Event participation is the sole responsibility of the attendee. Motorcycle riding is potentially dangerous and can result in personal injury or death. You and you alone are responsible for your own safety. Ride within your own ability. Road and weather conditions may change at any time and thereby affect rider safety, so check local conditions regularly.

Re: 2018 BRPR

I typically just pick the week but I had a few requests to see about alternatives.

I will touch base with Wattstull in a few days and finalize the dates.

Okay all the info is in my first post. You can start booking reservations on line starting tomorrow 1/17/2018.

Do not call to book do it on line - only call if you can't book on line.

Yeah! I'm in. Always a good time and a great opportunity to have a good time with great people and do some great riding in the mountains. If anyone wants to share a room give me a buzz.

Probably have to enter BMW or something. We did last year. It keeps others from reserving.

And to clarify We only have an agreement with the Wattstull Inn - I just post the other places in the event the Wattstull gets completely booked.

All the info for the Wattstull is in the first post.

Re: 2018 BRPR May 17th - May 20th

The Wattsull Inn sits minutes off the Blue Ridge Parkway but the mountain riding to WV is much better than the BRP (IMHO). There is riding for any skill level and any type of bike in the area. Last year was my first year with the group and it was allot of fun. Just don't ask my wife to attend the safety meeting.......

Just for info the beer selection at the store at the bottom of the hill has gotten much better. They put in a walk in beer cooler with a bigger selection. Can get my Devil's Backbone Vienna Lager there.

Looking forward to getting down to BRPR again, long overdue. I'll be in room 2 with whichever of my daughters win the coin toss to join.

Room 22 for Mike/travlr_45 and myself.

Probably won't be doing a Hatfield/McCoy with this, as we'd both be riding up.

Re: 2018 BRPR May 17th - May 20th

Though I'd add a "what's BRPR" reply. It's hanging out with Hooligans, great roads, and good times. If you've never been give it a try.

No one has asked yet what the weather is like. Let's just say blue sky can be deceptive, but then again as Bear once said, "It's breaking up!"


Visibility is usually exception for the first 100 feet or so.


If you like curves BRPR has them in spades. Just twist and grin.


Here's a shot of 311 (or maybe 39), both are favorite rides in the area.


But most importantly just be there.

Re: 2018 BRPR May 17th - May 20th

A side note.. if the Gov’t shuts down this weekend..will the Parkway be open and if so will there be enforcement on it? Yes..most likely the shut down will be short lived but the thought of no enforcement on that road..! But then again they, Park rangers, are considered to be ‘essential’ services.. Just a thought..
