You and I think alike .... BMWs .... 34' Airstreams.
I noticed the older valve covers... I presume that it's a '70s vintage block?

Yep... I put over 60,000 miles on my Beemer from '83 to '86. Then I sold it... Only had one bike since, and haven't had one now in over ten years. I believe my riding days are done too...

You are OBVIOUSLY a gentleman of discriminating taste...

Hi dmac,

I was a new owner this past year and renewed my membership. Granted those national caravans are a little long and pricey for us still working stiffs. The MN unit has shorter rallys and caravans during our camping season April to Oct. (about 1 month). I am actually going to be leading a 3 day caravan next August. I figured if the organization is going to fit my needs I had to get in and lead. Please get a hold of me if you would like to discuss or get more info.
Joining WBCCI is the best move I have made in a long time. Like you, I actively participate actively in every organization I join. I am currently a trustee of the unit and I have voluntarily created a website for the unit using my own free web space.

Granted, the big caravans are out of the reach of many still-working folks, but I will probably never take one of those long caravans. Out unit has 6 short rallys a year plus there is a region 9 rally. The average distance is probably 125 miles each way because Texas is a big place. Most of these rallys are 4 to 5 days and we charge only for the days in attendance; parking is ordinarily discounted and food is prorated.

The rally schedule is already posted for next year on our website. It shouldn't be impossible for many still-working persons to schedule vacation time in order to participate.

Our unit won an outstanding unit award this year and I am proud that one of the rating factors was the website that I had created.

No .. it is the original engine but I went with the older look with the valve covers.

FYI ... bored out to 1050cc, dual plugged, ported and polished heads with oversized valves, European sport cam, Del Orto carbs, 40mm exhaust, San Jose modifications.

Should be a screamer.

WBCCI Membership

I have been a member of the WBCCI for almost 10 years now. It has been a great club to be a member of. Yes alot of the members are older but you can't ask for a better group of friends. When we joined we were the youngest by many years and the club treated us like the had known us all of our lives. Being that we still work it is hard to go on the better caravans and such...but the rallies that our unit puts on are the best 3 day vacations you can have. So to sell the WBCCI short is doing both you and the club an injustice. But hey we all do what we want anyway. So good luck in your travels.
