Our deepest condolences to Mike’s wife Pilar and members of his family.


We received this notice from Bud C. of Fast Friends club:

Pilar, Mike’s wife, has asked Fast Friends to spread Mike’s ashes this coming Sunday (August 20). I know Mike had many friends and served as president of the Houston BMW Motorcycle Club. We’d like to invite all those who’d like to say a final goodbye to Mike. We plan to all meet up at the intersection of FM3090 and 149. That’s what we call the beginning of section 2 of 3090. Coming from 244, fm 3090 takes a hard right. There’s a bridge closed sign just after the right turn. If you don’t turn right, you’re on 149 going straight in to Anderson. I’m sure you’re familiar with the spot. Please be there at 11 AM, Sunday morning, SHARP. Too hot to wait. We have a turn picked out that’s only a few miles from there. Before the closed bridge. Pilar will be there. Just a short goodbye, spread the ashes. Then we’ll go onto Navasota for fuel, then back to 290 or I-10 for lunch. You’re! welcome to join us.

Thanks
Bud C

Moses Mai European (and Russian) Marathon

Club member Moses Mai is off on a trip most of us can barely imagine.

I’m attempting to ride from London all the way to eastern Russia, where I will skinny dip (4K video to come :clap) into the river separating Russia, North Korea, and China. Then head back through Mongolia, Kazakhstan, hitting all Western Europe (EU/non-EU countries) on the way back; and if I’m lucky, even Morocco / Africa.. before heading back to the UK. Approximately, 40,000-50,000 miles in 3 months; hence the European Marathon portion of the title.

Safety Training Class July 15

The BMW Motorcycle Club of Houston has scheduled a motorcycle safety training course for 9am Saturday, July 15, at BMW Motorcycles of the Woodlands. The course will focus on safe practices for group rides, and include topics on “seasoned” rider awareness and accident scene management. Lunch will be provided, courtesy of BMW of the Woodlands.  The training is part classroom, and part riding (a two hour practice ride with stops for critiques and discussion). So come on two wheels. The class will be presented by David Jones, Tour Director, Touring Adventures, LLC and Ari Garcia (club member).

The exact schedule and details are still being developed, so check back for updates. At this point the class is only for current members of the BMW Motorcycle Club of Houston, and class size will be limited. The cost (for Club members) will be nominal or free. If there is enough interest we may schedule repeat classes at later dates.

Registration for the class will open on June 30, or earlier as announced by email.
