New member Karma: "Motorcycle Camping Made Easy" book
Welcome, new members!
My name's Howie, and I joined the MOA a couple of years ago. Folks here have treated me very well, and I hope you get the same treatment.
I'd like to pass on a free book to a new member who's looking to try out BMW rallies or motorcycle camping: Motorcycle Camping Made Easy, by Bob Woofter.
In all honesty, it's a pretty basic book. If you've done much camping and/or motorcycle travel, you probably already know a lot of what's in here.
The book has been read, but is in good condition. I'll pick up the postage, unless you live in Outer Mongolia or somewhere like that.
I would ask that you pass it on to another member when you're done, but obviously I can't enforce that provision.
I only have one copy, so the first member to send me a private message with your name and address will get it. The days are getting longer, and summer's on its way!
Rally on, Dudes! (and Dudettes!)
EDIT: Congrats to our winner, new forum user "sumwon." This Karma is officially "closed." Thanks for your interest!

It is what it is.
Dear Uncle Howie,
Great intro and better offer. You will be right at home here. All the inmates love SWAG!!
Thanks again for the Group Ride article on the Chartered Clubs page.
Look forward to meeting you in Redmond.
It is what it is.

Is your wife still riding the Shadow or did she get something different? I remember you talked about a new bike for her last year.
Looking forward to seeing you again in Redmond.
No worries, Bud. There are new names/faces to remember at every rally!
My wife is still looking at different bikes. The R1150R is a top contender, and the local dealer has a very nice example on consignment. We'll have to wait for the snow to melt, then she can have a test drive.
We're not in a hurry, but I would like to see her on something that has longer fuel range and is a little more adept at covering the miles. I need to make sure we're getting a bike she wants, and not just what I think she should want...
Since she has a nice bike right now, there's no hurry to get something w/o thinking it through. We'll be "trying on" some different bikes at the Cycle World show in Minneapolis in February.
See you in Redmond!
And the winner is...
New forum member "sumwon!"
He beat out our runner up by 2 hours and 56 minutes.
I hope "sumwon" gets some good use out of the book. It sounds like he is already making camping plans for this summer!
The book will go out this week.
Thanks for the interest everyone!
