Veteran BMW Riders

This to announce that there is a new chartered club for the men and women of the Armed Forces who have served or are currently serving their country so proudly. It has taken awhile for a Veteran’s group to be formed for BMW motorcycle enthusiasts, and now we have a chartered club for Veterans. Veteran BMW Riders began with a few inquires on the BMW MOA forum as to whether or not such a group existed. As the number of inquiries grew, so did the expressions of “What a great idea!” Within 3 weeks we had enough BMW MOA Veterans to become chartered “The Veteran BMW Riders”, as a club under BMW MOA guidelines. At this point we have over 60 members and are still growing. The members come from all ranks and 5 branches of the Armed Forces and U.S. Allied Foreign Nations. We are still looking for new members to join. To join the Veteran BMW Riders go to our web site http://autos.groups.yahoo.com/group/vBMWr/ to become a member.

Take a look at this group of riders, dedicated to protecting military funerals.

I do believe in what that group is doing. What we need is stronger legislation at state and federal level to keep those protester away from are falling servicemen families. They have enough to worry about some crack pots causing problem for them.

Good information. I've often wondered if there was such a group. I will visit and check it out.
