    If you are like me you just go to the last post in most threads. If you did that here this morning you missed a great post. Racing, on tarmac or dirt, is much more than the guys and gals on the bikes. It involves all sorts of enthusiasts having fun while making the event happen.

    There are many local and regional racing organizations holding events that need support staff and are ready willing and able to train you to have a great time participating. Check with your local dealers for information.

    Thanks for the reply patiodadio

    Red Mountain Overlook on the Million Dollar Highway
    August 30, 2011

    Voni Glaves and Ardys Kellerman became the first two women in North America to document riding one million miles on BMW motorcycles. As they approached these accomplishments they arranged to meet in Ouray, Colorado to ride their one-millionth miles together on U.S. Highway 550, the “Million Dollar Highway. They reached this milestone at Red Mountain Overlook between Ouray and Silverton, Colorado the morning of August 30, 2011. Dealership documentation of their achievements has been sent to BMW Motorrad U.S.A. and to the BMW Motorcycle Owners of America, each of which provides mileage awards at 100,000 mile intervals.

    Glaves, 64, is a retired teacher who resides in the Texas Big Bend just north of Big Bend National Park. Kellerman, 79, is a retired electronics technician who resides in Lexington, Texas. Both have been riding BMW motorcycles for many years. Kellerman bought her first BMW in 1985. Glaves first BMW was her Mother’s Day present in 1977. Glaves accumulated the million miles on 15 different BMWs over the years since then. Her highest mileage on a single motorcycle was 357,658 miles on a 1993 R1100RS, which she still owns. Kellerman has owned 16 BMWs including a 1999 R1100RT with 170,000 miles.
