A place for BMW motorcycle owners (or any other bikes, really) to discuss riding, meeting, or other information about their motorcycles. This is for experienced or beginning riders.
This group is for people who want to get together and ride their bikes in a casual, short-notice forum. While this group is affiliated with the BMW Motorcycle Club of Houston it is not intended to be exclusive to club members or even BMW motorcycles. All are welcome!
The Meetup website or app is free for users, the only ones who pay are people who want to host or create groups. And you don't have to be a paid member of our BMW club either. While our membership is only $20 a year it is totally optional. If you are interested in more info about the club see www.bmwclubofhouston.com.
From a number of comments I have heard/read there is a potential audience that I hope this group might serve. That is people who want to go on shorter rides or people who feel like they are not as experienced and may not want to go with a larger group or a more aggressive riding style. I know of people who recently bought their bikes or are just getting into riding and want a more leisurely and shorter ride. Some people just would like to ride for an hour or so and not 150 or 200 miles. I don't intend to limit the group to this but just explain the idea and see what you all want to do.
The purpose of Meetup is to allow for group participation and discussion and free choice of when and where to go. I am looking for one or several people who would like to organize a 'meetup' and ride. The way this works is you let me know and I will enable you here as an 'organizer' and then you can post events.
Enough for now, I just wanted to clarify the intent and background and invite yall to get out a ride!
