IMBC 2010

A huge thank you to Stacy, Bobskoot and others for coming up with the opportunity to meet other bloggers. I have been following some of their writings for years. As a fairly new rider, I searched out others writing about their experiences and have learned many valuable lessons from them. I didn't have my bike down there and had to leave early so I didn't get an opportunity to ride with them but I truly enjoyed meeting them all. Meeting Conchscooter was a real surprise as I thought he was still somewhere in the southwest based on his blog entries. I've read every one of Irondad's posts once I discovered his site (from Charlie6's site) as there is a wealth of riding information there. From there, I found and Bobskoot and from these, SonjaM, Troubadour, Trobairitz and Bluekat.

Their posts sort of get me through the six month long non-riding season. I was not surprised to find them all as personable and pleasant in-person as they appear to be in their blogs. I was looking forward to IMBC2010 at least as much as the BMWMOA Rally. Maybe even more so since I had absolutely no idea what to expect from the rally.


  1. It was a pleasure meeting you as well Richard. We will have to get together for a ride next time you're in Corvallis (one of us will have a bike you can use or we will find one).

    Too bad you couldn't have stayed longer. It was a long day for us as we had left Toppenish, WA around 6am and had already ridden 5 hours to have our lunch meeting with Mr Conchscooter. then the heat set in and while at Irondad's hotel we were just in "flake" out mode. I thought it was nice that we all managed to get together but time was too short. Looking forward to the next one

  3. Ah, I see you were part of the IBC! I had been hoping to meet up with all of you, but I had to meet my daughter's plane in Portland on Saturday afternoon. Next one!
