At Trenton and Charleston I was involved in the MOA Foundation's young riders programs.
At each event the major feedback we got as to why people participated was to meet other riders their age. I think we can all agree that BMW riders under 26 are a bit scarce and it is difficult for them to meet up at the annual rally.
I am considering setting up a seminar that would be titled the Geezer Free Zone for riders under 26. The idea as it stands now is nothing more than a scheduled meeting place and time. I recall a few years ago we had such a seminar, mainly for the officers and board of the club to meet with our up and coming members to exchange ideas and solicit feedback from our new wave of riders. Taking this a step further I am thinking of making arrangements with a resturant or cafe 30-60 miles from the rally site with the idea of heading out for a ride to eat after the initial meeting. I suppose to keep the concept pure I will need to recruit a qualifed rider, I'm a relative geezer at 41.
For our under 26 riders is this something that holds any appeal? Do you have any suggestions on this or any other events at the rally you would like to see?
Thanks for your input.
