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.

BBC 2016 Color Ride directions and map.
The mapquest link is MapQuest Link
· There are lots of “mini-legs” to this ride because specific locations were required to map out the desired route.
· There will be a planned “rest” stop (40 minutes?) at St Lawrence C-Way Bar (in St Lawrence – Item K on the map).
o They do not serve food (other than frozen pizza and popcorn) but it is a nice place with ample parking and a nice sized bar.
· We will be ending the ride at the Bear Trap in North Lake – the actual address is W314 N7770 Hwy 83, 53064
o They serve food and weather permitting, we could have a general meeting in their beer garden. They also have a back dining room where we could meet.
· Estimated ride time for both legs is 50 minutes.
· Have we established a “gathering time”?
o I’m thinking 11:00AM (ish) – We’ll have coffee, pastries, etc. prior to the ride.

The British Biker Cooperative Celebrates the 36th Anniversary of their Annual Motorcycle Rally & Show
"The Year of the Chopper"
January 1, 2016 - 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 15-17, 2016, the BBC will celebrate their 36th 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.
