Next Meeting 5/14/2013 Legends – Owasso
Further discussion regarding the rally. The insurance quote has come in with a price much nicer than our first quote, the club treasurer will be pleased. We’ll schedule a couple of final planning meetings and work sessions to get everything lined up and ready.
Who is going where? The season has started. Bikes are dusted off, oil changed, tires inflated, and maps taken out of their cases and highlighted. Where are you going? Can I tag along?

It only took me a while to comprehend Judy’s name (sorry, Judy), and which model of BMW Jim has.
A quick discussion of BMW joining the rest of the motorcycle world in encompassing the single button turn signal. Us who have been on Beemers for a while, will take a bit to get used to the ‘rest of the world.’ Oh, well, back to the meeting.
Jim has been on bikes for over 40 years on all makes of bikes, various Japanese and American. Judy has ridden on the pillion seat while their mode was a Gold Wing. I asked where and his response was all southern states. Judy still likes riding, but has gotten wary of everyone else out there and their distractions, so had decided to hang up her helmet. As I passed the big six-oh last year, that has become my biggest fear also. We welcome Jim & Judy.
