From the FL wrecking crew. They rock. I can move all limbs some
I’m from So. Cal. and I’ve been in every BMR to date. I’m a slacker. Only have one bike at the moment. Looking forward to meeting everyone in So. Carolina!
HelloBMRbesties, I have ridden from Chihuahua MX to Chicken AK on one moto or another in search of the finest gas station cuisine. Always a BMR starter, occassionally a BMR finisher , looking forward to a terrific rally and to seeing you all at the banquet. [Image]
I am Stephen and only I know what I am wearing below the placard. 😀 I am currently residing somewhere in that big blue “polar vortex” blob you see on your evening news. It got up to 263°K here today so maybe by May my road will thaw enough to duck walk the bike to the highway. — There is no need to tailgate me when I am doing 50 in a 35… and those flashing lights on top of your car look ridiculous.
Hello to the BMR clan! My name is Tyler and this is my 4th rally. Big thanks to all who make it possible… looking forward to another groovy event! 😉
I’m Justin and I’m a BMR-aholic. This year, my goal is to finish the rally prior to the final day. We’ll see how that goes. In my spare time, I produce a podcast with literally ones of listeners and oh yeah, I’m the current app steward
What’s scarier than one Tim Roush. How about two Tim Roush’s. Just kidding. A big thanks to Tim Roush and his lovely wife Terry for putting on the benefit for the other Tim Roush at The Hut in New Haven, WV today. The two Tims are related way back in their lineage somewhere. It was a great day for a ride and it didn’t hurt to get over 75 points for chilling out for a few hours😁
I think this is my fifth BMR and (hopefully) my fourth finish. I’m in Redmond WA and have been riding on and off for over 20 years. I *may* be a crazy cat lady. I’m down to my WeeStrom and Lil Duc for bikes, I love them both but more importantly, I look good on both 🙂 This maybe my favorite bonus as we get to meet everyone 🙂 Thanks RJ and volunteers for another rally opportunity.
I’m Mike Hall and introduce myself as “the all American Kid”. Yes, my Mom baked apple pie, I delivered newspapers on my bicycle, got bit by the dog, and ran away from home and joined the circus, Ringling Bros and Barnum & Bailey (true story!). At the ripe old age of 20 I enlisted ( some believe got shanghaied ) into the Navy in order to settle down. After 22 years I decided I didn’t like their barbers and grew my hair long again. Favorite TV show was Then Came Bronson and ever since I have been a die hard Harley dude until recent years. Then came Victory and my eyes opened to alternate brands. THEN I found there was a community of folks out there who rode the way I did and were even way more crazier (impassioned) about riding long than I was. While I still have my Harleys, and my Victory, and even my Ural, I also have my BMW rally bike with 11.4 gallons of gas and my 1 gallon water jug. The kids are grown, the dogs are growing, and my wife has learned the ways of the long distance widow 😉
Look what we got during the rally. This little bundle cost me a weekend of bonuses and it was well worth it. Meet Ember Reign Cumbie. Kids would not agree to name her Big Money🙄???
The day started cold – around 22F for the first couple hours, but it warmed up nicely and the sun was out. It was a good day.
