September 8, 2014:  OSBMWR Meeting
Our rally is next Weekend.  Last chance to get our duck sin a row.  We also have a weekend ride (3rd  weekend).  And yes!  The Razee memorial is October 5.   

OSBMWR Breakfast: Sea View Restaurant
We surprised them Tuesday September 2.  They weren't ready for our 15 members, but they did there best and it was a good morning.  The group separated  and  went on different rides.  Our group of four went to MAX BMW in South Windsor.    It was a nice ride, mostly two lane roads.   Mileage each way was about 80 miles.  We saw the results of a rain downfall but never got caught in one.    Join us for a Tuesday ride, you never know what we will be doing. 

September 2, 2014:  Itís Rally Time!!
Itís that time of year! In two weeks our rally will be on. Same place, same time. Letís hope for the same weather we had last year.

As of August 31, we have 43 pre-registered. Twenty-four are club members and 33 want the lobster dinner, which is about the same count as last year. Iím hoping to have another 10-15 that show up and register when they arrive.

As always, volunteers are needed at the registration desk on Friday and Saturday. Iíll have the sign-up sheet at our next meeting on September 8. There are already volunteers for signs, set up and knock down.

One change this year will be Friday night food. We plan to have RI clear chowder and little necks on the half shell plus the usual snacks and drinks. We also have a new rally shirt and hat design, which is very creative. Hope everyone has ordered one. They will be for sale at the rally.

Some members have donated door prizes. Roy has received door prizes form the MOA and I am banging on the doors of local motorcycle shops. Any donations are appreciated. Saturday is our raffle night. Letís make it a big one.

Thatís it! See you at our meeting to finalize plans.

Ocean State BMW Riders Store

We have pre-orders for about 30 items for the upcoming Rally, and we have sold a ton of older inventory...with another half-ton still in the bin.

So if you haven't visited the store yet take a look and maybe you'll see something from the past that would enhance your riding wardrobe.

We are also looking at some new designs for the future that include some BMW engine and bike illustrations.
