The 2014 BURP rally will be held July 11-13 2014 at the Willville Motorcycle Campground located less than a mile off the Blue Ridge Parkway near Meadows of Dan, Virginia. This years  hosts are Lugnut, Rich Maund and DneprTim.

Open to all Ural and Dnepr owners and other Eastern European brands, as well as anybody else that wants to come !

Anyone interested in camping during the rally should register with Will Beers through the Willville Campground website or by calling 276.952.CAMP. The campground is for motorcycles (and motorcycle towed trailers) only, but if you trailer your rig, there is a parking area where you can park your car or truck w/trailer away from the camping area. There are several motels nearby, also some B&B’s if you do not camp.

Dinner Saturday night at the camp pavilion. Come play on the Parkway !

Noooo....! How will you get Michelle to sit on your lap if you don't bring the tiny trailer? Speak Italian? More potato vodka? :wink:  

See you at BURP!

Had a moment of terror there.... couldn't have that (or not have that !)

Since I don't speak Italian, I fixed it above:

Dagnabit, now I remember why I can't get to this rally. That is the same week that I help out with a huge service project based out of our Church. Wish I could make it, but never miss this opportunity to serve.

Ideally located less than one mile from the Blue Ridge Parkway in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia, Willville is set in an area that offers some of the best roads and scenery for the ultimate motorcycling experience.
The secluded campground sits within a 26 acre wooded park providing privacy from the main road while still offering easy access. The campground is designed for motorcycle traffic only, however, there is ample parking outside the campground (within the park) for those who wish to trailer their motorcycles.

Amenities at Willville Motorcycle Camp:
•Comfortable Campsites
•Motorcycle Traffic Only
•Campfire
•Auto/Trailer Parking available
•Bathhouse Facilities
•Picnic Tables
•Ice & Charcoal
Rates:
Tent Camping: (No reservations needed.)
$15.00 Solo
$22.00 Two-Up

Hi, I'm from Virginia but I live in west Virginia now, am thinking of going.  Any idea how many will be there?  It will be quite a trek for me, if I stick to only secondary roads....

Never mind, I just calculated it, and it would take me about 10 to 12 hours to get there, on back roads, at slow speeds.
Anyone know of any rallies in West Virginia, or western VA, or Eastern Ohio, or southern PA, or western MD....?

This is a low key Rally with 15-22 Rigs typically, no scheduled rides. Although people usually group ride to Floyd, Galax or Mount Airy.

Chateau Morrisette winery is popular. Posted Image

Dinner Saturday night at the Willville Pavilion is taken care of, courtesy of your hosts Posted Image

Friday night is typically on your own, there are a couple of restaurants nearby in Meadows of Dan, and a Pizza joint with live music.
Looking forward to this weekend and seeing everyone !! Posted Image

This is a great rally and I wish I could make it. Becky has to work and I'm not much at solo trips.

Big thanks to Lugnut, Rich Maund and DneprTim for hosting a good time. Perfect weather, a nice ride to Floyd, and Lugnut cooked up some world-class ribs! Sorry to say, I have no pics - my hands were busy holding handlebars, beer, or ribs. :smile:
