Four Winds BMW Riders
Riding from the Three Rivers to the Four Winds...

Pittsburgh Photo 2013 Ron Janoski 86Welcome to the Four Winds BMW Riders club, founded in the early 60's by a small group of BMW enthusiasts in western PA.  The first Four Winds Rally was held in 1967.  We host the longest consecutively running BMW rally in the country, predating the existence of any national BMW club.  We're located in the Pittsburgh metro area and enjoy excellent riding here and in Ohio, West Virginia and Maryland.

Moraine Mtg. 2019 bikes

This President’s Corner is a little late. We took our grandkids to New York City last week. We stayed at the Marriott in Times Square and did all the usual crazy, tourist things. We all agreed NYC is a great place to visit and an even better place to leave. There is no place like home in Western PA.  The Moraine State Park shelter house meeting was great. Vince and I rode to Moraine on SR 528 out of Evans City. It is a wonderful, twisty, scenic road. We got in some extra saddle time, since we got lost and ran into Leo on the wrong side of the lake. It was a good place to get lost.   Cont'd. Here         More Photos in Album HERE

MOA Getaway LogoMOA 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 2019 MOA Getaway locations and dates here.  Brochure HERE.
