The next day we headed back to the rally in cooler and cloudier weather. A very nice change. We attended a morning seminar on the new K1600 bikes which are truly amazing. This is a 6 cylinder motorcycle with incredible horsepower and torque that weighs about 200 pounds less than a Goldwing and other big touring bikes. One of the best features is the adaptive headlight system which moves the beam as the angle of the bike changes, both up and down and while leaning, so that your headlights follow the road even when going around curves. We saw a demonstration, and it was incredible. I resisted taking a test drive on the 30 or so K1600's they had there. I was really afraid that I would like it too much. And in case you're wondering, it costs just under 26 grand fully decked out.
So the change in weather helped on day two at the rally and we headed back to Hershey in the late afternoon glad that we'd made the trip. Next year the rally is in Sedalia, Missouri. Hopefully it's a bit cooler.

I couldn't find a beemer from my birth year of 1955 so this 1954 model will have to do.
