    new member from Calgary, Alberta

    Just wanted to take a minute to introduce myself. I'm a new member and a new BMW owner, having just added a 2009 K1300R to the stable. Not really riding season here yet but can't wait to get out. Also looking forward to attending the 2012 BMWMOA Rally in Missouri in July.

    Glad to see you here - there are a few of us from Calgary regularly posting. Have a look around - great group of people with a lot of experience to share.

    Hi from one of the Calgarians Martin named (thanks for the positive endorsemnet). Always glad to see more Canadians and particularily more Calgarians in the club.

    Though I won't see you at the rally (no time off this summer to go), hopefully we get a chance to meet sometime.

    I can't wait to retire and have a fixed income. The one I have now is always broke.

    Welcome, C.V., and thanks, Martin.

    For the new Calgary members, I recommend joining the local Rocky Bow Riders; they're a great bunch.

    I haven't seen the Lava Orange Metallic in the flesh so to speak. That must be a pretty fast colour!

    LOL! I think they are all pretty fast, certainly fast enough for me!

    How does one join the Rocky Bow MC? I've visited the website but most of the pages don't display anything and I can't find any info on membership.

    Try the 'CLUB' section of this site: http://www.bmwmoa.org/club/chartered...6c7c277dd62ac/

    They meet one Sunday most months all year with evening rides on Thursday nights...

    From Calgary as well, I tried meeting up at the bar they had listed on their webpage a couple Thursdays this summer but no one seemed to be around?

    Hopefully this summer will present a few more opportunities, especially with the MOA contacts I have now.

    Looks like there is enough of you in Calgary who are not members of Rocky Bow, to really bolster the club membership by joining.
