    Northern Michigan Rider List

    Early in 2010 (February or March) a meeting was held in Gaylord to gauge the interest in forming a Northern Michigan BMW Club. It did not move forward past that point to my knowledge.

    I contacted a couple of the riders that indicated an interest on the forum and ended up recently meeting with one of the riders, John Peck from Maple City, for breakfast.

    We both agreed that a step forward may be to start a Northern Michigan Rider List that could be upadated and shared with only those on the list to facilitate communication with other like minded riders. If someone wanted to take a trip, meet for breakfast, organize a ride, attend a rally, open house, motorcycle show or swap meet they could e-mail or call the list members to see if anyone was interested in doing the same.

    If your interested in being on the list you can send me a private message on the forum or send me an email at wkoppa@hotmail.com. I will volunteer to assemble and distribute the list. Also:

    I will not post the list to any public forum.

    I will not give the list to anyone not on it.

    I will not use the list for commerical use.

    AND Ask that you do the same.

    If your interested in giving this a try - send me the following.

    1. Your BMWOA Number

    2. E-mail address

    3. Full name

    4. Home City

    5. Main bike ridden

    6. Phone Number

    Thanks for your interest.

    Happy New Years to Everyone and may all your roads be open and safe in 2011.

    There are a couple of BMW MOA Ambassadors in that neck of the woods ... try reaching out to Pat Carol and the Lindell's. You can find their contact information the the front of the BMW MOA Anonymous book.

    Sometimes it's the bend in the road that makes life worth the ride.

    Slide To Eat

    There will be a casual gathering of OA riders Sunday 19th at the Cottage Cafe on Munson Ave. in Traverse City, MI starting at noon.

    If your not too tired from staying up to watch Ryan Dungey win the Texas Supercross - stop by, meet some people and get something to eat.

    Presque Isle County BMW Rider

    I live in between Cheboygan and Rogers City and would live to find other BMW riders to ride with. Keep me posted on how a possible club up north works out. If I can help let me know.

    I ride a blue 2007 R1200RT.

    Yours,
    Pat

    While I have been know to ride some distance to eat, meet, and greet, I can't make this one as I have to work. But I will keep this in mind for the future.

    After all, it's only about 140 miles away.
