Today I see the MOA home page prominently advertises BMW Motorrad - Germany's contest "Ride of Your Life".

The MOA has also posted the link to the contest entry web page on the MOA's page on Facebook.

The only problem with all of this is that the website to enter the contest - and to submit the essays required of entrants - is in German, and BMW has done something to their web page that prevents Google Translate from translating the web page into English.

Since I ride German, but don't speak German, MOA encouragement to enter the contest is simply cruel and inhumane.

Can anyone get BMW to provide a version of the webpage in English so those of us who don't speak the language of the Fatherland can have a chance at spending five months riding around the planet on BMW's dime?
