Member Tested: Real Reviews From Real Riders
Our Member Tested program puts the best gear in the hands of real riders who give real reviews. You'll hear the good, the bad and the ugly about all the gear they have tested. But when it is over, you will know you can buy the best piece of equipment that is durable enough for MOA members. All product reviews must come from an active member (at the time of submission) and should include photos of the product being installed or used in some way. Drop an email to wfleming [at] bmwmoa [dot] org with your idea for a review or your completed review. Thanks!

John Phillips started riding in his early 30s, just prior to the introduction of the first K bikes. He didn’t chance upon his first BMW, an ’84 R 100 (S), until 10 years later. “I always admired the aesthetics and mechanical quality and functionality of the pre-‘85 airheads...rugged, reliable and among the best looking motorcycles of that era.” The R 100 is his primary motorcycle while he restores a ’74 Norton Commando for fun. He enjoys 100-200 mile romps around the back roads of NY, PA and northwestern Sussex County, NJ where he lives, and long weekends to local and regional airhead events and the vintage races at Mid-Ohio. Recently retired as a business development executive with Covanta Energy, Inc., he is enjoying more time to ride the R 100 and preparing for a move with his wife Jeannie to Cornelius, NC.

I came to motorcycling late in life, having grown up hearing, “Don’t ever get on a motorcycle, you’ll DIE!!” from my parents. That changed when, at the ripe old age of 40+, I learned that there was a class you could take to learn to ride (the MSF Basic Riders Course), and you didn’t need to have your own helmet, or even a motorcycle, to take it. I ended up on BMW because I didn’t want a cruiser and the only brand salesman who looked at ME as a buyer was the BMW representative at the local motorcycle show. I’ve been riding for not quite 15 years, and have been a certified Rider Coach for eight years. I survived my sophomore crash (July 2004) wearing BMW gear. I also survived a highway-speed encounter with road debris that cracked the front wheel casting on my Rockster (R 1150 R). I’ve taken Lee Parks’ Total Control and the MSF’s Advanced Riders’ Course several times (because it's fun!). Having recently moved to Lynchburg, VA, I am loving the amazing roads that are right outside.
