In my March 2008 BMWON on page 102 in the section " 2008 BMW MOA Rally FAQ, a question as to whether there will be any special events planned for women?
The answer states " There will be something special for women with respect to the seminar presentations but we would like to hear from women riders as to what they would like to be able to see at the rally. Hospitality will have a list of interesting options for the ladies".
I am moved to ask if there will be anything special for men with respect to the seminar presentations?
Would anyone like to hear from men riders as to what they would like to be able to see at the rally?
Will "Hospitality" have a list of interesting options for the men?
My own unofficial observation suggests that there are a goodly number of men that attend these rallies. It seems wrong not to give the same consideration to men as to women.
Most seminars seem not to be gender specific (Travel, Camping, vehicle operation and maintenance etc). Perhaps it is time that some consideration of mens issues such as health (I wonder about prostrate health vs extended hours in the saddle for example) and aging concerns relating to safe motorcycling (the demographic is claimed to be older) would be fair and proper.
I suppose that there are some that feel that the Rally itself is a "special event" for men as is. I disagree, the male demographic should be given the same consideration as the female when it comes to "special Events"
