Wall mart tent, Sleeping Bag and a NICE pad under the sleeping bag. All that is needed. I guess I don't really camp, I just sleep in a tent.



Nothing like getting up in the morning, packing up and going to find a cup of hot coffee on the bike.

That's what I do. Luckily Kyle is usually there with his 110 cup coffee maker.

Anytime your outdoors your camping, you don't even need a tent sometimes.

On the coffee subject. What about a stainless cup with the shape of the exhaust header on one side and a neoprene sheath and strap to insulate and hold it in place. Hot water for the french press while you warm the bike up.

Guys and gals...long time no post, and not one I'm happy to make.

Bob Beach, founder of Beach Motorcycle Tours, and one of the founding members of the BMW Riders Club of WNY has passed away at the tender age of 89.

Taken from the BMWRCWNY Facebook page:

"From Victor Beach,

My father loved the "Coupe Danemark", which is a name the Europeans use for a hot fudge ice cream sundae. It is only fitting therefore, that an ice cream social will be held to honor his memory. It is equally fitting the event be held at the Hersche...
ll Carousel Factory Museum. Dad was employed by Herschell, selling amusement park rides for 16 years.

Details:

Saturday, January 26, 2013

1:00pm – 4:00pm

Herschell Carrousel Factory Museum
180 Thompson Street
North Tonawanda, NY 14120

Schedule of events:
1:00-2:00 Ice Cream
2:00-3:00 Memorial services
3:00-4:00 Coffee

Special rates have been arranged at the Holiday Inn, Grand Island. Simply mention the Beach Memorial.

Kindly R.S.V.P. no later than January 16 by sending an email to RDB.Memorial@bmca.com or by post to:
2763 West River Road
Grand Island, NY 14072

Let's all do our part, and hope Bob gives us a great day to ride in!"

I'm not one for riding in the saltwater, but if the weather is halfway favorable, my GS will be there.

Ride in good health my friends.

Wife and I, of course, will be there, 2 or 4 wheels. Bob was a great guy, and the 40 year old company he founded has created many an Alps-aholic, the wife and I amongst them.
