    Keeping track

    Also, for Ridealot, California and most other states if not all, require that the current mileage is recorded when a change of ownership occurs. So, that should be your starting point for each BMW bike you own or both start and end points for bikes you have owned in the past. When I submitted my forms, my dealer took my estimate and essentially did a quick verification with their service records and glanced at the current bike's odometer for good measure, but they pretty much trusted me. They processed both awards happily and took photos of the owner handing me my certificate and medallion each time!

    Most dealers know about the BMW Motorrad USA awards and are happy to get them and present them.

    Here is Voni getting her 900,000 mile award from Mike Jones at Engle Motors in Kansas City.

    MY dealer in Las Vegas was aware of the program, but we (as far as I know) were the first to apply. It took seven months to get the award back from BMW, but I did finally get it...Here is Peter Vanderhofft ( owner of BMW of Las Vegas) presenting us with the award. My bike is a 1991 K100RS.

    Look at Voni's! All nice and framed. Did you at least get a rubber band so you could roll it up like a poster?

    Pretty cool achievement. I have only approx 98,000 miles to go for my first.

    What program are we discussing? Total miles on a bike? By a rider? By a rider on a particular bike?

    It seems to me that if you get your 6K services done at the dealer, then he'd have a record of it. Assuming you bought your bike new, when you take it in for the 102K service then, bingo, they know you have 100,000 miles. Or is that too simplistic?

    Or are we talking about that annual mileage contest?

    who brings their bike in for 100,000 miles of oil changes and valve checks?

    Lifetime miles on BMWs is the award.
    i just tell my local dealer what i've ridden on what bikes, never had an issue. It's not like people are going to be scamming the truth to get this award. someone would lie to themself and others about their bike riding history for that? really?
    i suspect that Motorad feels the same way/
