Thread: Voni Hits 1,100,000 BMW Miles

  1. #1

    Voni Hits 1,100,000 BMW Miles

    On Saturday, August 12 we rode back to Red Mountain Overlook where Voni and Ardys reached their 1 million mile marks together six years ago. So yesterday Voni went over 1.1 million miles at Silverton just south of the overlook. We rode on up to the overlook for a photo oportunity and to salute Ardys, Eddie James, and John Ryan whose ashes we have scattered there in recent years. Now it is on to Nakusp, BC for the rally there.

    We have sent the mileage numbers off to Engle Motors to send to BMW.

    Just Incredible

    Congratulations.

    Thanks for reminding us about Ardys, Eddie and John.

    Got to think they are out there someplace doing big miles with big smiles saying, go Voni go.
