Annual BMW Club Mileage Contest - Virtual Events

Annual Mileage End – March 31, 2024

Annual Mileage Start – April 1, 2024


Our BMWMOCM club has decided to continue our own Summer Mileage Contest for members. This will begin 4/1/24 and end 10/31/24 (BMW and non-BMW bikes). That’s right, ALL bikes, even those non-BMW things. 


Of course, our goal with the BMW MOA contest is to beat Wisconsin and all other states. We did very well last year, with nearly 400,000 group miles. All BMWMOCM members should sign up, regardless of if you ride 50 miles or 50,000 miles a season. 

Please see the email from Dan Elasky and Steve Handeland on 3/20 for the full details and if you didn't see the email, please reach out to either Dan or Steve for a fresh copy.

Every mile counts!!

Our club fundraising quilt raffle is now live! We are planning to sell tickets at many club events throughout the year, but you can always contact a board member to secure your tickets!

The BMW Motorcycle Owners of Minnesota (BMWMOCM) was established in 1971 to provide an opportunity for BMW riders and enthusiasts to come together. The club provides a reason to gather, exchange ideas, share experiences, and most importantly, ride! We are affiliated with both National BMW organizations as BMW MOA Charter Club #49 and BMW RA Club #26. The common interest is BMW motorcycles, and the club has grown to over 160 members. Memberships renew in September, but you can join any time, and dues are just $30 yearly.

Members own a wide-variety of BMW motorcycles, from the classic pre-war singles to the latest in German motorcycle technology.  BMWMOCM has regular meetings, organized and spur of the moment rides, rider skill development events, the classic Hiawatha Rally, travel, and camping. Members support the motorcycling community and local dealers.
