But when we bought our BMWs, we got memberships to the BMW Motorcycles of America (MOA) club. We haven't gone to any local meetings, we didn't attend the national rally, even though it was relatively close to us, and we don't know any other folks in the area that might want to ride.
I did just renew our BMW MOA membership, however. For two reasons, really. One, the cool monthly magazine. And two, the Anonymous Book.
That's a BMW rider's little black book of like minded individuals all over the country willing to lend assistance, meet up, give advice, etc. It's a great tool to have. Especially considering how off the beaten path us riders tend to get.
My renewal packet arrived yesterday. Complete with patches and stickers.
I was happy to see the little helmet sticker. I didn't get one of those last year.
I'm easy to impress. :-)
I'm also quite susceptible to earworms.
My first thought for a post title this morning was "We Belong." Which, of course, made the following song come to mind. (Folks who grew up during the 80s are particularly at risk of catching this one.)
That song is going to be stuck in my head for HOURS. You'll have to let me know if you caught it, too.
Don't forget to see what my blogger pals are still capturing as February winds down.
