Guess Ray Zimmerman (former Ex Dir of the MOA) can't stay away from BMW functions. Sure do miss him around the HQ.

Ron does this mean we all get the family discount now that your son works at a BMW dealer?

Well a little bit far for me to do a day trip in November, but I ride in that area annually so I'll have to stop in next spring/summer
