    Thumbs up Women's Seminar

    Friday would be a great day for me. I'm taking the ERC for women only on Sat. I'll keep an eye out for a possible scheduled date and time. Hope to see everyone there. Thanks

    Lightbulb Bike Get Together & Swap Meet

    Let's try to pick a seminar time that conflicts with the least amount of other events/seminars. Many F650 owners are women. Hope we don't conflict with the Chain Gang seminar. (Demo ride sign ups always take lots of morning time.)

    How about picking a time and location to bring our modified bikes and favorite gear for show & tell like we did in Trenton behind the BMW demo truck? That should be a regular event at Nationals. Let's not wait till Sat. -- we need time to go buy the things we saw and liked!

    Evolving along those lines, maybe that would also be a good time & place to bring used clothing, gear, & gadgets that we'd like to sell. Much easier to buy if we can try on for size instead of guessing on the IBMWR classifieds site! Maybe late afternoon or early evenings Thurs. or Fri. after the vendors are closed??

    Back in April, when Susannah was planning the vast puzzle of times and places for seminars, I asked for advice in this forum. Then I requested either Thursday afternoon or Friday morning for the women who ride seminar, and then another time Saturday morning for informal meeting of women riders. Too late to change that.

    There may also be more women focused seminars, at least that's my hope. I sure encouraged it! But just a month away, I'd expect it's too late to change much for this year. The rally program should already be at the printers.

    As to the ideas expressed here now, be sure to talk about them early next year for the rally in Spokane! Should be wonderful riding in that part of the country. I just returned from a 3 week ride around scouting for Ayres Adventures. Wonderful roads! Little traffic! BIG animals ; )

    AND we can talk more at the two seminars in Charleston.
    See you there. . .

    Can't wait!!!!

    Women Riders

    Voni,
    Is the question posed to women who are the drivers or women who love BMW motorcycles?

    I, as a non woman person may be asking a shallow question. But I would think there is a large group of women that could be passengers and who could lead other women to be assoiated with motorcycles and lead them to be the drivers?

    What do you think?

    Certainly, Fred, we all do what we can to encourage riders. This seminar has a broad focus and is not exclusive.

    But the main focus is women who ride and what they want to share. Everyone who is interested in the topic is welcome.

    See you there?

    Leaving tomorrow. Can't wait!

    We'll begin the seminar Thursday afternoon with top ten best riding/gear hints from each presenter and then open the floor to discussion - LOTS of discussion.

    Don't forget - if you qualify as youngest or most mature (oldest) rider bring your driver's license and join our panel.

    And then meet again Saturday morning for more casual conversation.
