Battle Creek BMW Club Mini-Rally May, 2017

West Michigan BMW Riders won the “Largest Club in Attendance” plaque for the 2017 Mini-Rally hosted by the Battle Creek BMW club. ┬áLocated at the Green Valley Campground in Sturgis, MI, the weather this year was a bit on the chilly side, dropping to 35 degrees on Saturday night.

Just a few of the many bikes there. This was early in the registration.
