What is the Curve Cowboy Reunion?
A gathering of friends that have a common love for the BMW K1200LT and the camaraderie
and spirit this grand motorcycle brings with it. Rather than call it the
K1200LT Rally, we felt that the Curve Cowboy Reunion better represents the
spirit and camaraderie that our group has built over the past few years.
What is the History of the Curve Cowboy Reunion?
The Curve Cowboy Reunion started in the summer of 2000 when a group of
K1200LT riders decided that it would be great to have a get together centered around
the BMW K1200LT and our common interests. A few of the K1200LT list's
enthusiastic members planned and organized the K1200LT
Rally. Based on the brotherhood and friendship that ensued, along with
the spirited riding that took place, it was decided at that point to rename
the K1200LT Rally as the Curve Cowboy Reunion. The first CCR was held in
Broken Bow, Oklahoma on September 22-24, 2000 with 45 BMW K1200LTs, 5 other
bikes, and 60
participants in attendance. The second CCR was held in Hot Springs,
Arkansas on September 20-23, 2001 with 86 BMW K1200LTs, 6 other bikes, and 132
participants in attendance.
To see some pictures and stories from last
year's reunion, check out the CCR I and CCR II Photo
pages. The next CCR will be held in Santa Fe, New Mexico on September 3-6,
2002. For more information on
the details, check out the rest of this web site.
does the Curve Cowboy Reunion Operate and how are the proceeds of the Curve
Cowboy Reunion used?
The Curve Cowboy Reunion is a
non-profit (IRS 501 (C) 3) organization. A great deal of time, effort,
and personal expense goes into hosting this event for the benefit of the
attendees of the Curve Cowboy Reunion. All funds collected by the
reunion, via donations, reunion fees, and merchandise, are used to operate the
reunion for the benefit of all who attend and as an initial seed funding for
the following year. Any residual is donated to a local charity. Nobody
in the CCR is in this to make
money. If the CCR makes money, it will loose its non-profit status. The goal is to have a great reunion and to walk away with great memories.
2001, the Curve Cowboy Reunion on behalf of all the attendees donated over
$1500 to First Step, an organization chartered to provide an array of services for children and adults with developmental disabilities in a community setting
including early intervention, preschool, residential homes and supported employment.
Between the CCR's donation and the proceeds of the Bike Wash, over $1800 was
secured for First Step.
I can't attend
this year, but I'd like to help. How can I help?
you can't attend, but you would like to help in some way, we have a Donation
page which will allow you do donate a prize donation or cash donation.
a vendor, how can I attend or help out?
If you are a
vendor, there are two ways you can help. One is by attending our
reunion. There is no separate vendor charge, but you will be required to
register and pay just like any other attendee. The other is by donating
a prize of some sort. In either case, you and/or your company will be
profiled on our website. You can find out more on the Vendors
and Supporters page.
Can I Join in on the Fun if I don't have a K1200LT?
While the Curve Cowboy Reunion is centered around the BMW K1200LT,
it is not an exclusive event. Over the years, we had several other
bikes join us for all the activities, including the R1100RT,
R1150GS, K1200RS, K1100LT, R1100S. Harley Davidson FLHTCUI, Honda
Valkyrie, Honda Gold Wing, Yamaha Royal Star, and Honda V65
Magna. The Curve Cowboy Reunion doesn't discriminate amongst
motorcycles. We're there for friendship, camaraderie, and
spirit that the BMW K1200LT inspires.
Why have the Curve Cowboy
Reunion in Santa Fe, New Mexico?
The CCR Board of Directors reviewed several site proposals and selected
Santa Fe, NM as the best location for 2002.
If you have your own ideas or would like to host the CCR in your area next
year, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Why the week of Labor Day?
Based on feedback from the attendees and other members not able to attend
past Curve Cowboy Reunions, it was decided that a Mid-Week format would give
the best opportunity to the most people to attend the Curve Cowboy Reunion in
2002. This format will allow most people to use the weekends on each
side of the reunion for travel, thus reducing the need to take additional
vacation days to attend.
Also, scheduling the Curve Cowboy Reunion specifically through September
2-6. 2002 offers the attendees a unique opportunity to attend 3 rallies in the
Iron Horse Four Corners Rally -- August 29-September 1, 2002
Curve Cowboy Reunion -- September 3-6, 2002
Bavarian Mountain Weekend (aka Sipapu Rally) -- September 7-8. 2002

already registered, but I haven't paid yet. Is my place at the reunion
Until you have paid your registration fees in full, your
registration is not yet confirmed. The only way you can confirm your
registration to the 2002 Curve Cowboy Reunion is to pay your registration
fees. Registrations will be confirmed on a first-pay, first-confirmed
basis. In short, until you pay for your registration at CCR III, your
place at the reunion is at risk.
Why is registration
limited to 250?
Limitations at the site venue require us to limit
attendance to 250 attendees. We would love to accommodate more of our
friends, but based on our hard physical facilities limitations, we are forced
to limit the size of the 2002 Curve Cowboy Reunion to 250 attendees.
What is the Registration Payment Policy?
The host hotel is expected to fill rapidly as a result of the rates and other
concurrent events with
CCR III. Consequently, any rooms reserved by individuals with the hotel, but not registered
for CCR III (including full payment of reunion registration fees), will be
cancelled from the CCR room block to be resold within thirty (30) days of the start of the
Registration will be limited to the first 250 confirmed attendees.
Confirmed Reunion Registration is guaranteed by pre-payment of Reunion
Fee. If you have any questions, please contact Gary
If you are not registered AND paid for the
reunion BEFORE August 3, 2002, your reservation at the hotel will be
cancelled and returned to the CCR III room block for reallocation.
What is the Cancellation Policy?
Because demand has exceeded the supply of rooms and banquet space in each of the past two
years of the Curve Cowboy Reunion, and because the
fixed cost of the event dictates, the Curve Cowboy Reunion Board of Directors regrets the adoption of a no refund policy on
CCR III registration. The CCR Board of Directors reserves the right to cease acceptance of registration. In short, sign up
now Cowboys and Cowgirls for your lodging and watch for the CCR III registration on the web site in order to
register as soon as possible!!!
The Reunion is Sold Out. What can I do?
We are taking names for a waiting
As with all events, people tend to change their minds at the last
minute. We want to offer the ability for people who have a change in plans
to offer their confirmed registration at the reunion to people on the waiting
list. If you are still interested in attending the 2002 Curve Cowboy
Reunion in Santa Fe, please take a moment to enter your contact
information. If a slot in the registration opens up, we will be contacting
people on the waitlist in the order they submitted their contact on the Wait
My plans have changed and I cannot attend. What
can I do?
If your plans change and you want to offer your CONFIRMED registration to
someone else, please contact Eddie Pharr.
Because we must know exactly who is attending the Curve Cowboy Reunion, all
transfers of your place at the reunion to someone else MUST go through
Eddie Pharr. Eddie will coordinate matching of people on the wait list with
confirmed attendees who need to re-allocate their reunion slot and hotel
Please, DO NOT sell your slot without contacting Eddie Pharr. It will
make it difficult on the reunion organizers and difficult on the people who show
up in your place.

(30 days prior to the event). After August 3, 2002, no cancellations will
