BMW Riders Association Announces Free Admission for First Responders and Nurses to the 2020 National Rally

By a unanimous decision, the BMW Riders Association Board of Directors has voted to give nurses and first responders free admission to the club’s 2020 National Rally as a way of thanking them for their efforts in dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic. “Board member Al Olme came up with the idea,” says BMW RA President Sibley Poland, “and the rest of the board quickly got behind it.” For his part, Al Olme says, “BMW Riders Association members are a...

A Message About COVID-19 for Motorcyclists

We motorcyclists understand risk more than the average person. We think about risk when we choose the color of our riding gear or how we dress, when we take rider training courses, when we maintain and farkle our bikes, and every time we retract the kickstand and head down the road.
