John Frick in Cincinnati, OH. This is my 3rd BMR and I am looking forward to riding to some new places and the fun of following everyone else’s adventures. Pretty much retired now after running my own small business for many years. Originally got into riding in the mid-70’s with a Honda 750 with a Windjammer fairing…great bike. Out of riding for about 15 years ( college tuition took precedence), then returned to riding in 1997. Am on my 5th BMW since then and about 700K miles. Love to just ride to places where most riders would not plan a route/ride to, and that is why these tour type rallies are so much fun…hope the weather cooperates this year in our OH area. Everyone ride safe.
