Witnesses something pretty cool!!

Today I was privileged enough to witness something pretty cool. "ErnieA" (and his wife) were awarded a 200,000 mile certificate award, with coins etc. BMWOR provided cake and picture opportunities (I'm sure someone will post some).

Now mind you this is 200,000 miles on a SINGLE bike, his K1200 LT, very impressive by anyones standards. During the pre-event conversation Ernie said something that sums up his riding attitue. He said that a while back, he and a friend decided they wanted lobster for dinner, so they rode to Portland.........Maine! He said it took them a week but it was worth it. Those of us listening just sorta smiled...

Good Job you guys!!!!

I'm sorry I missed it. I stopped by about 10:00 and everything was already done.
Soooo congrats Bernie!

Re: Witnesses something pretty cool!!

Someone commented the next step of course is the 300,000 mile coin. Ernie said that is only 90,000 some miles away. I bet him he could not get this done by this time next year. Just wanted to help out with the goal setting.
