The race season final results are in. In the Midwest Region I finished 1st in the Classic 60's 650 class and 2nd in Sportsman 500. Nationally I am ranked 4th on the 650 and 6th on the 500. Great results for a less than complete season with 3 1st place finishes and 3 2nd place finishes on the 650 being a highlight of the season. Also scored a 2nd a 3 3rd place finishes with the 500 that I'm extremely proud of. A complete report can be found in the next "Knews". I want to thank each and everyone of you that supported me this year especially the British Biker Cooperative for choosing me as their club sponsored racer.
|MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT|
Welcome to the British Biker Cooperative (BBC) website. I hope you enjoy the information and pictures that are provided here. The BBC continues to support riding British motorcycles of the Coventry, Meridan, and Hinckley varieties and can provide some assistance with your vintage bikes to keep them on the road . . . where they belong..
We have an active annual calendar with many motorcycling events that occur throughout the United States. Whether it be racing, shows, or rallies, you can find something that may interest you during the riding months (or all year if you are from the southern regions of the country). We certainly encourage you to come to one of our sponsored events, particularly our BBC Rally in July. 2017 is the 37th Annual Rally which will celebrate "40 Years of The British Experience; Long Live The Limey". Yes! The BBC is 40 years old and still going strong. Our rally is at Eagle Cave Natural Resort right in the middle of some of the most beautiful and exciting riding roads in the USA. The camping is comfortable and the comradery is great. We have a blast every year.
Take a look at the BBC sponsored racer, Dave Spanjar. He races at several events and is extremely competitive in his racing classes. For Dave, the racing season starts in June in Michigan and ends in October in Alabama. We will keep you apprised of his journeys and progress throughout the year. Along with Dave, you can see some fantastic vintage bikes going "hell bent for leather" on the race track
For those of you reading this and are not currently members of the BBC, give some thought to joining the Co-op. You get admission to the BBC Knews which keeps you informed of our gatherings, events, meetings, and friends. You get a discount to our rally and when you join us for a ride, you get to see some of the nicest vintage British metal on the road. We always hope to meet new members and we always encourage them to join us in keeping the BBC running smoothly and strong.

The British Biker Cooperative Celebrates the 37th Anniversary of their Annual Motorcycle Rally & Show
Featuring "40 Years of the British Experience;
Long Live The Limey"
January 1, 2017 - Milwaukee, Wisconsin - The British Biker Cooperative (BBC) has enthusiastically and very successfully promoted the rich heritage of the British motorcycle in the United States for over three decades. Their membership enjoy all facets of British motorcycling past and present through their active participation in motorcycle events throughout the United States and beyond. The BBC is most recognized for their annual Rally that has drawn thousands of motorcyclists over the years into the unique experience of British motorcycling in the United States.
On July 21-23, 2017, the BBC will celebrate their 37th Annual British Biker Cooperative - Motorcycle Rally and Show at Eagle Cave Natural Campground in Blue River, Wisconsin. The event offers a weekend of activities including group rides and bike games, a Motorcycle Show, Friday night movie, band Saturday night, comfortable shaded camping with dedicated quiet areas, and refreshments. An assortment of on-site amenities include a restaurant, camp store, showers, and cave tours through Wisconsin's largest commercial cave. The event formally kick-starts on Friday, but the BBC encourages riders to arrive early to avoid the rush. The BBC Rally location is 60 miles due west of Madison, Wisconsin near the Wisconsin River and features many area attractions including rides along the majestic Mississippi River, Frank Lloyd Wright's Spring Green, and The House on the Rock.
This event offers a great opportunity to see both rare vintage and late model British motorcycles in action on some of the best riding roads in the Midwest. All motorcycle enthusiasts are welcome.
