MOA Headed to Eureka Springs Again

Last year the BMW Motorcycle Owners of America (BMW-MOA) held their first-ever Weekend Getaway in Eureka Springs, Arkansas. The event attracted a large number of riders from several states. It was so successful they’re doing it again for 2016! Continue reading MOA Headed to Eureka Springs Again


Thrills in the Hills

Lunch at Low GapLast October I had the opportunity to attend the BMW Riders Association (BMW-RA) national rally in Harrison, Arkansas. A few other club members were planning to attend– so we made plans to ride over. After all, it’s not often a national BMW event is held within an morning’s ride! I met up with Randy and Jeff near Catoosa and we proceeded east to Arkansas, and a great weekend. A number of other local club members were also camped out at the Boone County fairgrounds. Continue reading Thrills in the Hills

Next Meeting
Burger King last month in October was a bit stark.  Wasn’t in the mood for a hamburger of the fast food type, so I contacted Tally’s Good Food Cafe at 11th and S. Yale (1102 S Yale) for something a bit more varied and nicer, and we’ll see how that works for us. Management also expressed the desire that all the attendees would be hungry and order dessert with their dinner and drink.  Plenty of parking on the west side of the restaurant.  We’ll be in the back.  I’ll try to remember our BMW sign.

11th and Yale
November 10 @ 7:00 PM
meeting starts at 7, come earlier for dinner 

Our treasurer says we have money, so, we need to spend some.  The club used to do a Christmas dinner, but back then, it was pot luck and hosted at a member’s home.  Reserving a location in a restaurant can get tricky the closer to the holidays, plus everyone usually have other engagements to attend, so I would suggest ASAP.  We can discuss. You’ve gotta arrive to discuss. Continue reading November 2015 Newsletter

Recall for Rear Hub Cracks

Shortly after announcing their best January ever, BMW sent out a recallBMW R1200-R on thousands of K and R-series motorcycles.

The “technical campaign” addresses a well-documented weakness in the rear wheel flange where the brake rotor attaches. Overzealous tightening of the brake rotor or wheel bolts can crack the hub and cause catastrophic failure. That’s bad. Continue reading Recall for Rear Hub Cracks
