Orlando BMW Happening, Sat Feb 10th

Received this email from the BMW of Orlando, wanted to pass it on.

**start quote**
BMW Motorcycles of Orlando would like to invite you to a very personal event for us. We are having a going away part for Rainer Helmke on Saturday 10th of February. Rainer has an exciting opportunity to help open a new, huge BMW motorcycle dealership in Portland, Oregon. His last day is this coming Saturday, Feb 10th. Rainer has been an institution here at BMW Motorcycles of Orlando for as long as I can remember. His extensive experience with BMW bikes; and, as an Edelwiess tour guide has been very helpful to customers and employees alike. While sad that he is leaving, the shop is also very excited for him. We’ve checked out the motorcycling opportunities in Portland, and quite frankly we are jealous! So, please come help say goodbye to our colleague and good friend, Rainer. We’ll laugh a lot, tell some tall tales, shed a few tears, and eat chips & hot dogs.

Show your passion for the sport, ride to the shop!

Thanks!, Mike Dozier, aka “minimike”

Ps: Rainer likes dry red wines if you’re thinking about a going away gift.

Or an East German Women’s Boxing Champion would work too.

**end quote**

It sounds like fun, and an excuse to get on the bike.

Sorry to see Rainer leave. He has been a good friend for many years.
