B.U.R.P. 2017?

Post by Tomcatfixer » Thu Mar 30, 2017 5:52 am

I'm trying to arrange my calendar; I've got a lot going on this summer. Two B.U.R.P. questions:
- Who typically coordinates it?
- Will it be 7-9July this year? I assume so, since it's already listed that way on the Willville Motorcycle Camp website: http://www.willvillebikecamp.com
I was just looking for confirmation.

It seems like it goes CRAP, BURP, FART. This is biologically incorrect.
95% of all Urals built in the last ten years are still on the road....The other 5% made it home.

It may be incorrect, but I can say, from experience, that it is entirely possible.

B.U.R.P. 2017

Post by DneprTim » Fri Mar 31, 2017 8:21 pm

The 2017 BURP rally will be held July 7-9 2017 at the beautiful Willville Motorcycle Campground located less than a mile off the Blue Ridge Parkway near Meadows of Dan, Virginia.

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 will be provided Saturday night at the camp pavilion. Come play on the Parkway !

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

Looking forward to it. Think we will stay after the rally and do an extended tour up the parkway. This retirement stuff is hard work!

We did the parkway beginning to the end in 2002 on our red Tourist, when it still had the 650 engine. Except for the occasional downpour of rain, it was fun. We were so tired by the time we got home. If we do it again, I think it will be at a slower pace with more overnight camping, or maybe even two nights every now and then to rest up. That being said, we love the parkway. It's just about our favorite place to ride, at least when the sun is shining.:)

Rode the Skyline Dr and Parkway last summer, perfect Ural roads. Made it to Meadows of Dan area first day just putting along. Best riding are sideroads off the Parkway. BURP is a perfect location.

Was that clever phrasing for 'bump'?
