Today was the election meeting for the BMW Motorcycle Owners of Georgia and the club’s annual low country boil. What a novel way to get members to show up to elect club officers; a free low country boil! Donna and I got on the bike and rode the hour and half or so to Hard Labor Creek State Park in Rutledge, GA. This ride was to be nearly all interstate mainly so that we could sleep in for a while on a Sunday. Sure it’s quicker but it’s not as fun of a ride. We had a pretty good turn out too. I guess it was the free food.
Low Country Boil
One of the really neat things about a BMW Club is all the different styles of motorcycles that show up. Not every BMW motorcycle is a boxer engine powered motorcycle. There are also single cylinders, twin cylinders and four cylinders motorcycles of various configurations. There are sport touring bikes, roadsters, touring bikes, sport bikes, standards and dual sports. There’s also bikes still on the road that were made in the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s. And believe it or not even some bikes that are not a BMW!
It was also a good day to ride and travel on some two lane roads we’d never been on before. The big plus was spending some time with friends of a common interest.
