Still Undecided?

Perhaps you have reached this point and you are still undecided? Well we could offer a couple of points for your consideration (1) The BMW Club is pretty good value at £32 per year and to fill a GSA with super-unleaded is going to cost you about £38 to get you about 300 miles! (2) Modern and many desirable classic motorcycles are expensive machines to buy and own so you need to get the most out of your investment. If the bike spends its life in the garage then it will become a bit of a white elephant, you need to use it to get the best from it and joining the BMW Club is the best way to do that (for BMW motorcycles). Being a club member can also help with the costs and getting the right advice, (3) For most of us many things that we do are just more fun when done with other people, whether it is enjoying a ride that a friend has planned, discussing your new bike purchase over a coffee, setting off on an overseas adventure or solving a tricky problem. Simply put its more fun together!

If you are still considering what to do next you are very welcome to join us at a BMW Club Pub Social or event, details are in the club calendar. If you need any help just email the event organiser.

 

Thank you for your interest and Safe Riding
