BMW MOA mileage contest 2011.

Wow, did they ever do a breakdown of more categories than ever for the mileage contest last season!! Some major accomplishments were noted, as well as a more than favorable number of entrants, given the economic impact (yea, I know - bike vs cage for a commute is usually less expensive).

Since the various data wuz spread out over several pages of ON, I won't attempt to get too specific with names - nor mileage figures. Glad to see Dave Selvig, Ken Meese, Doc Edkin, and Fletcher Clark listed among the Top 25 Men Finishers. And Ardys Kellerman, Heidi Still, Voni Glaves, Jacque Mulhern among the Top 25 Women Finishers.

Amazingly, once again, Wisconsin leads the list with the number of entrants (145); with a total of over 1 million miles!! Dang, I thought they had winters in WI. Good job to those guys and gals, for sure.

If you like numerical data reads, April issue of ON is the place. And for 2012, April is the start for the mileage contest this year - ending in Ocober.

Re: BMW MOA mileage contest 2011.

I hadn't yet seen the results, Dick, so thanks for posting.

I'm happy with my performance, considering that I got taken off the bike mid-summer . . .

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...

Re: BMW MOA mileage contest 2011.

Well, I did manage another 3,500 miles on the LT from August to the end of the contest in October, and another 4,500 miles since then . . .

Gotta get right back on that horse.

Re: BMW MOA mileage contest 2011.

I finally beat out Don Norwood in AL(#4 my best so far). But the sad part is I did 4,200 in Feb and March out to Las Cruces and that wasn't included as it was outside the envelope. Gotta try a little harder this year. More Trips!!!

Hi Dick,

Whenever I get an entire day to ride I'm most likely headed up into Wisconsin. Awesome
roads in the "Driftless" area, but anywhere west of Monroe, Madison & Tomah to the river
are worthy roads. I'll be spending 2 days wandering this area before I head up to Duluth in
August (taking in Wildcat Mountain State Park as suggested in another thread).

I wonder why CCR picked Duluth and not La Crosse? (I'm sure Duluth will offer some fine
riding)

Have fun,
Jer
