The BMW Motorcycle Club of Battle Creek (BMW MOA #14 and BMW RA #349)

Founded in 1971, The BMW Motorcycle Club of Battle Creek, Michigan (BCBMW Club), is a fun, family oriented group of people who enjoy riding and talking about BMW motorcycles. Meetings are held the first Saturday of each month (except in January and July).

In addition to monthly meetings and rides (weather permitting), the BCBMW Club sponsors the  Original Mini-Rally  each year in Sturgis, Michigan.

Thanks to All Who Joined Us For The
45th Annual Original Mini-Rally
May 5 - 7, 2017

Our 45th Annual Original Mini-Rally  was SO MUCH FUN! 

The weatherman was a bit fickle, but the Thursday night rain moved out of the area and gave way to sunshine both Saturday and Sunday.  We shared a weekend filled with great riding, exciting field events, rides, new and renewed friendships and lots of smiles. 

Thank You All for Coming!


REMINDER:
If you didn't get your Rally T-Shirt, we still have a few available for purchase. 
Just send an e-mail inquiry to info@bcbmw.com to check available sizes.
Still just $15.  Get yours before they're gone!


We look forward to seeing you again in 2018
for the 46th Annual Original Mini Rally!

Thank You Rally Sponsors!

The generosity of our valued Rally Sponsors makes it possible to offer door prizes to our rally guests.  Throughout the 45-year history of the Original Mini-Rally, we have been fortunate to receive support from many businesses, organizatons and individuals who help make each rally a success.  Many have faithfully provided door prizes every year for many years! 

Please show your appreciation to the businesses, clubs and organizations listed on our
Prize Donor Web Page
by visiting their web sites,
patronizing their businesses, taking part in their events,
and taking a moment to thank them in person whenever you see them,
for supporting local rallies like ours.

 


Thank You Rally Volunteers!

It takes a lot of time and effort to put on a great rally.  Many hands make light work.

A BIG THANK YOU to all of the volunteers who helped make the 45th Annual Original Mini Rally a great weekend for all of our guests.  Many of you worked long hours preparing for the rally over the last 12 months and even harder during the rally weekend. 

Your fellow club members, and most of all our fabulous rally guests,
greatly appreciate your contributions.


Mileage Contest Info

The BMW 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!
