Update (Sunday, 11/7, 1:00pm PST): Everything is up and working. Thanks everyone for your patience.

Update (Sunday, 11/7, 8:00am PST): the website and forum are back up, but the store is not yet functional. We hope to have this corrected soon.


The club's website will be up and down intermittently starting tomorrow and possibly stretching through until Sunday. You should expect there to be at least one long stretch where it will be unavailable. We are sorry for the inconvenience.

Word is in that long time vintage BMW rider and restorer, Daniel May and racer Rebecca Berneck, have just set three new top speed records in 250cc Vintage classes. Our congratulations go out to them!

The new top speed in the P/PV-250/4 class of 72.08536 mph was set at the Maxton Mile during the October ECTA meet there over the weekend of October 30 and 31 by Berneck. May set records in two other categories with the bike as well.

We have just introduced another feature to our website. It's called BMW Models, and consists of a small area on the left sidebar, just below all of the buttons, and above the featured photo from our Member Photo Galleries.

The US EPA announced that it would be allowing the sale of E15 fuel (15% ethanol/85% gasoline) for use in cars and light duty trucks beginning with Model Year (MY) 2007 and newer, and that they are investigating allowing E15 sales for cars and light trucks from MY 2001 and newer. The report on that may be issued next month. Motorcycles, heavy duty vehicles and off road engines are explicitly exempted from the waiver because of a lack of testing.

How does this affect older vehicles? What will this do to our ability to run our vintage bikes?

12/20/2010 Update: Automakers, Boatmakers and the Power Sports industry filed suit to prevent implementation of the waiver today.
