    Another source of information for your friend

    The BMWLT.com site is specifically for K12 riders. There's a lot of experience there. He might do well to log on there--it's not a site requiring membership dues.

    If you haven't done so already, post this question on the bmwlt.com forum. There are a lot of K12 riders there who aren't necessarily members of BMWMOA.
