Congratulations to Sandy and Marilyn

Post by Alan Coles on Wed Sep 30, 2015 3:11 pm

BMWMOA recognized BMWONS members Marilyn Wright and Sandy MacLeod as "Outstanding riders" and "riders who entered the realm of big dogs" by awarding them with the Long Distance Female Solo Rider and Long Distance Male Rider of the 2015 43rd Annual BMWMOA International Rally held in Billings, Montana, this July 23-25. Their journey from Nova Scotia to the Rally is listed as being 2,866 miles.

What it doesn't say is that Sandy and Marilyn outdid themselves by not only doing the 5,772 mile round-trip journey but along with their side-trips to and from the Rally the totaled over 11,000 kms riding each for their trip. To top it all off, they stopped by to take in our weekly Thursday evening Chicken Burger get together on their way home from the Rally. Talk about riding spirit.

Just in case you don't know Sandy and Marilyn and think their riding is mostly limited to Rallies, we (Amedee, Ken, Glen, and me) during our 2015 Fall Colours Ride, came across Sandy (on his bike) while stopped for gas just before the Canso Causeway.

Congrats Sandy and Marilyn. your mention in the October 2015 BMW Owners News is well deserved.

Speaking of the BMWMOA Rally, I'm starting a thread on the 2016 BMWMOA Rally here (already booked my hotel room): http://bmwons.forumpro.fr/t1594-2016-bmwmoa-rally-hamburg-ny-july-14th-17th-2016

No thanks required.

You're the ones who did it, and accomplishments deserve to be recognized.
