MOA Mileage Award

Back in January I received an E-Mail from BMW MOA telling me I was chosen as the "Average" mileage winner. I was asked to write a short article explaining how I got the miles I turned in. That article will be in Aprils Owners News along with the start of this years mileage contest. I do not ride a lot of miles due to work so I was happy with the miles I had done in the 6 months of the contest. Yesterday I got a box in the mail from the MOA & this was inside the box. I am humbled to be recognize by the MOA for my little part in their nation wide mileage contest.

Get on those bikes, get the miles & you too could be an "Average" rider like me.

Re: MOA Mileage Award

Hey Steve, that's great - congratulations!

You're the first annual mileage contest "notable" that I have had the pleasure of knowing.

Re: MOA Mileage Award

Since Stevie didn't ride too much, and didn't ride too little, but rode just right...I think from this point forward he should be known as "Goldilocks".

Well, I don't know. I'm not wishing for Steve to join the paste tense "club", just saying he's the first mileage contest winner I know. Or have known. Or probably will know.

Re: MOA Mileage Award

Way to go Stevie/Goldilocks!!! I'll forebear asking if the award makes you Extra average, will that chase you out of the just right category?

Re: MOA Mileage Award

The concept of Steve being "average" is causing me trouble.

Re: MOA Mileage Award

I almost beat you with total miles last year. But that was on my bicycle 5600 miles last year.
