  • Hi all – Had a blast in Waynesville, NC for the 50th annual International BMW RA (RIder’s Association) Rally!  A lot of folks canceled out due to Hurricane Ian’s un-predicatable path, but those who came had a GREAT time. Weather cooperated, with only some drizzles on Saturday, but very chilly for that area this time of the year.  There were 5 f…[Read more]

  • SValois replied to the topic GARMIN NAV VI Issues in the forum Rides-Rallies-Etc 6 months ago

    I received my 4th replacement Garmin NAV VI LM yesterday.  I was assured in writing that this new one will NOT have the “ghost-screen” issue. This is the first replacement I have received where the software/display actually looks different.  Hopefully, this will be my last replacement.  As a side note:  the previous replacements were app…[Read more]

  • One of our new members, John Adamski, is also looking for someone to ride to the rally with. I suggested he contact you on here.  He lives in Columbiana.  See you at the rally!  Sandi

  • Don’t forget!  The BMW DEMO truck will be at the BMW Motorcycles of Cleveland THIS WEEKEND – May 21-22.  My buddy “Grumpy”, Scott Lindell, will be there cooking as well!  Forecast calls for rain, but hey, it’s just water, right?  Hope to see YOU there.  Support your local dealerships, as they support you.  In case you don’t know where it is……[Read more]

  • I have plans in the a.m., but will either meet you for lunch around noon-ish at the restaurant or a bit later at the museum.
    Rain predicted, but under 50%!


  • Someone asked me today on the ROMEO ride about the EMERGENCY CONTACT FORM, you know…the one that everyone should have on their person when riding anytime, and anywhere ….Anyhooter, it’s on the drop-down menu under “RIDING RULES/INFO”, and it is entitled “Emergency Info Form”.

    We will have some printed out and available at the next general…[Read more]

  • Thanks Jerry –  Trade it in to Garmin, or where I bought it?  Does if fit in the standard NAV VI mount?  So many questions.

  • Sooo, I got my 3rd replacement NAV VI LM in September 2021.  Got about 1000 “bike miles” out of it.  Just sent yet another email to support@garmin.com to get my 4th replacement sent to me.  I have consistently requested a NAV V (which actually work!) replacement, but to no avail.  Stay tuned for the continuing saga of “The Ghosts of BMW NAVs Past”….

  • SPRING is finally in the air – AH-CHOO!  Sorry, I missed the membership meeting, but I hear it was well-attended!  Thanks to Paul Mitchell for presiding, and for the presentations by Wally and Duncan.
