    Northern Michigan BMW Touring Club!

    We must face the reality that the white stuff will be on the ground. I will not say that word but, I know anyone that lives in Northern Michigan knows exactly what I am talking about.
    I would like to make an attempt to possibly get a touring club started up here in Northern Michigan. This would include the Upper Penninsula.
    I am a longtime member of the Touring Club Detroit. I would certainly never leave that club. They have watched me grow older but, I have never grown up.
    If people are interested, please contact me Pat Carol (989)-727-3813.
    We could make a date for all of us to meet in a central location for dinner and to discuss a club name, logo and whatever else may come too mind. I think it would be a great time.

    Pat,
    We had the pleasure of meeting a fellow BMW rider that lives in Marquette. She has an informal BMW group that tries to ride in spring and fall. You can reach Jessica by email.
    BMWUPNORTH@aol.com. We try to say "Hi" when we are up that way( the oldest goes to NMU). Good Luck!

    Hey Pat; Count me in, sounds like fun. I know several Beemer riders around here (Mason and Oceana counties) and would be willing to help. Let me know. Vaya con Dios, Dutch

    Althought I'm not in Northern MI, I would like any excuse to ride that way. Keep us posted at to how things are coming along and if meeting times and locations are established. At the very least, I'd join you all for b'fast sometime.

    Ciao.

    Hey Pat,

    My name is Rodney Castaldi. You and I met just prior to the Rally. We were at the gas station exchanging info. Anyhow, I am definitely interested. I live in Alpena, MI, on Long Lake Hwy. My number is 989-595-3736. Call me or anyone who is interested in some nice smaller trips during the week/weekend. I am currently taking some college classes, but would love to take a couple more leisurely cruises before the "stuff" comes down.

    Take Care,

    Rodney

    Interest

    I have a cabin in Northern WI and brother has a house in Greenland, MI, (UP) and would be interested in more information. I enjoy riding and snowmobiling in the UP and would consider joining in depending on location of club.

    Just to give you all an update. I would like too plan on setting up a get together January or February time frame. I am thinking that we could meet in Gaylord for brain storming and supper.
    This could help break up the winter blue's and help us set a goal for something too look forward to for the 2010 riding season.

    This sounds like it might work. I am in Traverse City, anyone out there close by that can do some short rides on short notice.
