success. Many have faithfully provided door prizes
every year for many years!

taking part in their events,
and taking a moment to
thank them in person whenever you see them,
for supporting local rallies like ours.

hands make light work.

Mileage Contest Info
Battle Creek Club
Mileage Contest for 2017 runs from April 1, 2017
through November 1, 2017. To join the
fun, just get your beginning
odometer readings (photo snapshots) for each of your BMW motorcycles
to Willie D. and start riding!
The focus of this year's riding
bonus challenge will be National and State Parks,
Monuments, Forests and Seashores. You are not required to enter
each park, but you must
take a picture of your BMW motorcycle with the park sign. Each
participant collects photos
throughout the summer to send to Willie D.
in November with the ending odometer readings. The club member who visits the most parks during the
mileage contest earns bragging rights!

helpful websites to plan your park visits:
