October Meeting Photos from the Deer Farm
A big thanks to Kelly & Bob for hosting our October club meeting at their farm. The glorious, sunny Fall day, the lure of bikes, food and other interesting 2 and 4 legged creatures drew 20+ people out for a classic picnic. Did you know that deer have beautiful eyelashes and whiskers? That turkey's heads could be so colorful? That "old barn finds" do exist? That a huge steaming hot crock of baked beans can successfully travel in a top case? Ever meet Camper Ron's wife? That there are two roads leading into the farm and one is quite an off-road experience? Next time maybe we'll get up close to the elusive ostriches . . . Check out the photo gallery HERE.
This was the annual officers nominations and elections meeting. Thank you to all the current officers who have agreed to stay on and serve another year. Watch our Newsletters section for the minutes. Many of our members who have been off riding, globe trotting, and racking up Smiles all summer, shared their stories.
2022 4Winds Rally Photo Album!
Photos from MOA National rally in Springfield, MO
A dozen or so Four Winds riders wound their way to a hot Springfield, MO near the Ozarks' great riding roads for the BMW MOA national rally in June. David & Greg from Fla. took the long way round, out west, until joing us there, as well as on to Meadows of Dan, VA for the Guzzi rally the weekend after.
We stayed in a variety of motels, air BnBs, and camping, but all enjoyed using the 4 Winds canopy as home base for much needed shade in the club camping section. There was a very good showing of vendors, bike shows, seminars, training and even an indoor GS dirt obstacle arena. Interesting local attractions included the home base of the Bass Pro Outdoor empire with aquarium and museums, historic Route 66 places, a civil war battlefied, a zoo and cavern tours.
Notice that infamous author Jack Riepe was sporting our 2015 red 4Winds T shirt during his seminars. He spoke at two of our rallies including his first in-person presentation to a group.
Check out our photos HERE. Adam Chandler has some nice ones posted at Flicker here.
