New Club looking to start up in NW FL and S AL, and Lecture by Benka Pulko
Benka Pulko will speak about her experience and show select photos from her entire global trip during the multimedia program, ÔÇ£One Woman, One Motorcycle, One WorldÔÇØ at the BMW Motorcycles of Pensacola, 6258 North W St, Pensacola FL at 6 p.m., Thursday, January 24, 2013. Slovenian-born Pulko, an award-winning writer and Slovenian Woman of the Year, had never driven motorcycle when she conceived the idea to traverse the globe on a two-wheeler. But within five months, she was packed for a trip that ultimately introduced her to 75 countries, earned her two entries in the Guinness Book of World Records, gave her 35,000 photos, and included five stitches and a 10-day stay in a hospital. (Her BMW motorcycle went through 19 tire changes and 10 chain sets.)
After this entertaining speaker, there will be an informal meeting at the dealership to have a discussion about starting a BMW Motorcycle Chartered Club along the Southern Alabama and Northwestern Florida Panhandle area. At this time there is no formal BMW Club in the surrounding area. So if you are interested in helping start a club in this area please show up for both events and help get a new BMW Motorcycle Club started.
