February President's Corner, Banquet Photos & Notes
It was good to see everyone with their “Sunday best” clothes on at the banquet. It’s the one
time of the year when we don’t have motorcycle or casual clothes at a meeting. Article Continued HERE . . .

MOA Getaways for 2020
MOA Getaways are hotel/resort based events for those who enjoy riding to faraway places but don't camp. Some call these events rallies, but with crowds of less than 100 and a sense of exploration, this isn't the traditional motorcycle rally. MOA honchos do the legwork of getting the dinners set up and negotiate room discounts. All you have to do is show up, ride great roads, visit with old friends and meet new ones! Full List of all 2020 MOA Getaway locations, dates & reservations here. Brochure HERE.
Mosites has Purchased BMW Motorcycles of Pgh. Dealership
The BMW Motorcycles of Pittsburgh shop is being sold. The sale should close this week with Mosites Motorsports in North Versailles. Mosites is a large dealer with a variety of manufacturers and all types of motorcycles including: CanAm, Ducati, Honda, KTM, Kawasaki, Motus, Mahindra (ATV), Ski Doo, Sea Doo, Spyder and Triumph.
I visited the Mosites shop and spoke to them about support of our Rally a couple of years ago. It’s a big shop. They have had Ducati for some time. For several years, they have tried to get the BMW franchise for the south in Pittsburgh. Now they will have it for the entire Pittsburgh area.
Mosites is outfitting a new building in North Versailles, at the current Motorsports location. It will be a BMW, Triumph and Ducati shop and will open about March, 2020. In the meantime, BMW parts and service in Pittsburgh is on hold. You may be able to order parts from Mosites in the meantime.
I know this is not all you want to know. However, when the deal is closed, later this week, I will get more information. There will also be a Press Release from Mosites with further details.
During the BMW shop transition, Kissell Motorsports in Tyrone, PA can handle any BMW parts, service or sales. -- John H.
