Welcome Mat / Re: Hello from Pleasure Island, NC
« Last post by Patmo on Today at 08:08:37 AM »
Welcome Jerry!  We have many BMW Riders and many RA members in our group, but always welcome more.....especially ones that like to RIDE!  😁

We are all about riding and each of us have our favorite bikes (Sometimes it’s tne NEXT one we get..lol) to do that riding on. Many (most?) of our members are multibike owners and do all kinds of riding...road, dirt, race, etc.  Sport Touring is our focus and purpose.  We want to promote it and provide our members with ample opportunities to do it. 

I look forward to meeting you and to getting your ideas and thoughts.

Welcome Mat / Hello from Pleasure Island, NC
« Last post by OldBMWMaster on Today at 07:00:18 AM »
Hello from the eye of Hurricane Florence.  We made it through another one.
[/size]
[/size]I am Jerry.  I have been riding motorcycles since 1957; BMWs since 1967.  I own several brands of bikes; but do most of my distance rides on a BMW R1200RT.  I passed the million mile mark years ago; but I do not keep a running log of my rides; I just ride.
[/size]
[/size]I am on the Board of Trustees of BMWRA and I am the Coordinator of the BMWRA Regional Directors.
[/size]
[/size]I will be at the Appalachian Mountain Riders Rally in Low Gap, NC next weekend.  I will also be at the Barber Vintage Festival in a couple of weeks.
[/size]
[/size]I look forward to seeing you on the road.

Well, I think its fine, actually that kids don't want to drive.   


Let them all live in their tiny apartments in huge congested cities, and they can commute on their sardine cans on rails - or in their self-driving elevator cars, or just work from home in their closets, or do whatever it is they think is trendy or prestigious.   I hope they live their entire lives without leaving the shelter of their glass skyscrapers, or their online gaming universe.   If they like the Matrix so much, they are more than welcome to live in it!!


That means the real world and the back roads are ours to enjoy in peace.

Why should they drive when mommy and daddy tote them around everywhere until they are 30 years old. 😂😂
My 21 year old nephew is a senior at OSU, doesn't drive my sister and her husband go get him and take him back any time he wants. He took a bus once and said never again. (My dad would ask, who's in charge the kid or the parent  ;)  )


He wants to move to San Diego, and won't drive, not sure how well that works out, a few people with experience there say it can be done. But I still consider SoCal the land of cars, few don't drive and traveling an hour away for work is nothing.

Jamie and I did a great little road trip earlier this month. I have completed the ride reports and you can read them on my blog. It is just too long to re-write. I hope that you all enjoy the reports. I have posted some pictures from the ride to set the tone. Have a great day and Ride safe!

Me and my friends grew up riding home made mini bikes. It was nothing for us to move up to a motorcycle when we got licenses. Our kids grew up riding 3 and 4 wheelers. Many of these these kids lack two wheel skills and  are scared of bikes.
