Just a few things to cover this week.
Some call it aroma therapy, I explain it to the man as being golf league, but hopefully regardless of the excuse you are planning on using, it will warm up next week and we will be able to start our weekly Wednesday rides in earnest. Be at Bak BMW by 4 PM weekly. It's not required, but if you think you will be riding text me and I'll try to let you know if we are cancelling the ride for weather.
It's nine short days until the BS Rider/Autobahn Spring Campout. The food this year will be great!! The people attending fun. If you think your coming let me know. Details: http://

How often have you been able to ride with a real, live, famous celebrity? Well Steve Martin is leading a BSR ride this Saturday morning (5/4) after breakfast. Be at Bak BMW at 9:30 a.m. to join the fun. If you want to have breakfast with this funny man, be at the Garden Cafe at 14th and Jackson to eat.
Dave Bak is planning a "Bacon and Bikes" event Saturday, May 18th from 9 a.m. until noon at Bak BMW. Ask Dave if you need more detail, but usually all it takes to get me interested in something is are the works bacon and bikes.
I heard there was quite a turn out for the Martinsburg ride-in two Saturdays ago. All I can tell you is that it was in the 70's and 80's in Arkansas last week. We had one of those surreal rides Wednesday on Highway 21/221 between Russellville, AR and the Missouri boarder, the kind where you don't see traffic, just scenery and curves.
