    100,000 mile award question

    I know BMWMOA has a 100,000 mile award. Does BMW Motorrad USA still award their bronze medallion for 100,000 miles?

    Hope you have better luck with your dealer than I did. They had no idea what I was talking about. I had to find the form online and print it and fill it out for my 200K award and then hand it to them. Then a month later when the MOA mileage thing ended I took that form in to be signed. I was asked why I keep bothering them with these mileage forms. None of their other customers bother them with this stuff and they would like it if I didn't either.

    Hi, Tom,
    Were I you, I would not "bother" them by being their customer. I would make sure I had a talk with the owner to make sure he understood why you would no longer "bother" them with your patronage, too. And if HE gave you the same feeling, I would make sure this list knew that, and knew which dealer you were talking about.
    Ride Safe,

    Boy Tom, I can just feel the love you're getting from them.

    My dealer in LA keeps track of all her customers' mileages, even if they don't know about it. Since she has all of my records, I go through her to get my awards when they come up, even though I haven't lived within 400 miles of her shop in almost 20 years.

    Every other year her shop holds a 100,000 mile party and invites all the 100k+ customers for hot dogs and burgers.

    So how do you start tracking your mileage? I probably have 500 miles down, but want to start tracking so I can some day get an award! Where do you start?

    Take a picture of your odometer every January 1st. Keep receipts for tires.

    Lonestar BMW in Austin, TX had a fun time highlighting their high mileage riders at the Holiday Open House last December:

    OK, this works. I guess I need to start late this year! I could use my purchase mileage as a start point I guess. I have only owned it 4 months. Does this apply only for 1 bike, or can you ride multiple? I assume, if I ride my Yamaha, it wouldn't count...

    Just BMW miles. But can be on any number of BMW's. If you keep records that can reasonably assure your dealer that you've ridden the miles that's what counts.

    Or... find a dealer that will do the work for you. I guess that's why I keep buying bikes from West Valley Cycle Sales.

    It was about a 1 1/2 years ago so my memory isn't real good, but I'm pretty sure I googled it and found it fairly easy. Of course now when I try to find it again I can't.

    Anyone else have a link to the form. If someone finds it this time I will save the link.
