On April 23, 2017, the Port Washington BMW Club hosted their 33rd annual Wild Goose Run in Beaver Dam, Wisconsin. This is an annual event where the area clubs meet for lunch and conversation at the start of the Wisconsin riding season.

At this year’s luncheon, Kenneth (Mac) McHugh, MOA#31798, was presented with a Lifetime Achievement Award by all the Wisconsin clubs.

Mac joined the MOA in 1976, and for 10 years he was one of the photographers for the MOA. One of Mac’s earliest pictures was the first color cover page for the Owners News magazine. After that, Mac has spent the last 30 years as an MOA Ambassador.

Mac and Arlene have spent years traveling the United States and Canada to rallies and on long distance rides… always together. Many older members will remember "the boys" (their dogs) that traveled with Mac in his tank bag. On October 27, 2009, Mac reached the million mile mark and was recognized by the MOA.

While all of these events were going on in his life, Mac still had time to be a founding member of the Badger Motorcyclists of Wisconsin, MOA Chartered Club #64, in 1976. The Club still exists today with a stable membership. Mac still attends the monthly club meeting and many of the monthly events the club hosts throughout the year.

The Lifetime Achievement award was presented to Mac by the presidents of the eight BMW Clubs in Wisconsin and Northern Illinois.  Always an MOA Ambassador, Mac spent time at the end of the day with the youngest rider attending the Wild Goose Run, passing information and wisdom on from one generation of rider to the next.
