JESSUP, MD, May 6, 2015– Bob’s BMW Motorcycles in Jessup will host a Military Appreciation Day this Saturday, May 9 to honor local veterans and introduce the community to VETMotorsports, a 501(3)(c) charity that honors and empowers injured warfighters through active participation in motorsports.
The event, which will run from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM at the Guilford Road dealership, is open to the public and will showcase unique military motorcycles dating back as far as WWI and WWII, as well as a modern-day 2008 BMW R1200GS that “tells the story of an American fighter pilot.” In addition to enjoying food and beverages, attendees will have the chance to meet representatives from VETMotorsports and Absolute Cycle Experience and enter to win prizes, including two Absolute Cycle Experience track-day passes courtesy of Brian Conrad of Edward Jones Financial.
“We’re proud and excited to be hosting this event, to honor the thousands of local veterans who’ve given so much, and to give something back to them and the community,” said Bob’s BMW Marketing Manager Hanna Creekmore. “We’re also eager to introduce our customers, neighbors and friends to VETMotorsports, which is doing something very special to honor and empower injured veterans through motorcycle racing and other forms of motorsports.”
Founded in 2012, VETMotorsports is an award-winning, non-clinical outreach program that provides inspiration and motivation to combat-wounded, post-9/11 warfighters by making them part of a new team and giving them a new mission. The program recruits participants, embeds them with professional race teams and covers all expenses for them and a caregiver to take part in the experience.
“Race teams participating in the VETMotorsports program have already positively affected the lives of over 40 injured warfighters and caregivers,” said VETMotorsports Founder Peter Cline. “We want to make that opportunity available to more veterans, and events like this one help us get the word out, raise money and recruit new volunteers and participants. We can’t thank Bob’s BMW enough for their support and their commitment to the veteran community.”
One of the ways VETMotorsports is raising money for the cause is by inviting local riders and motorcycle enthusiasts to participate in an upcoming track-day fundraiser hosted by Absolute Cycle Experience. The track day will take place on Tuesday, June 9 at New Jersey Motorsports Park with proceeds going to VETMotorsports.
Representatives from Absolute Cycle Experience also will offer mini track-day seminars at 10:00 AM and 2:00 PM during the Military Appreciation Day event, speaking with guests about the value of track days for riders of all types, as well as proper preparations, expectations and common misperceptions. They also will be available throughout the event to answer questions.

For Immediate Release: April 16, 2015
(Denver, Colorado): A free one-hour multi-media seminar about 101 years of long distance motorcycling will be offered by America’s “number-one extreme motorcycle adventurer,” Dr. Gregory W. Frazier.
“The longest, most difficult motorcycle journey ever attempted.” (1912)
“The First ‘Coast To Coast’ Trip By A Motorcycle And Sidecar – A True Adventure” (1913)
“The Greatest Ever ‘Round-The-World Motorbike Adventure” (2012-2013)
“Five Times Around The Globe By Motorcycle” (1980-2014)
Time: 12:00 (12:00 Noon, Saturday, June 13, 2014) until 13:00
Place: BOB’S BMW, 10720 Guilford Road, Jessup, MD 20794
Telephone Number: 301-497-8949
Purpose: For over 100 years motorcyclists have been riding around the world on a wide variety of motorcycles ranging from Harley-Davidson to Vespa. The first person to solo around the world did so in 1912-1913 on a one speed, 7 horsepower Henderson motorcycle. The fastest person to circle the globe on a motorcycle did it in less than 17 days.
The first couple to ride across the United States made their incredible adventure in 1913 on a Henderson motorcycle equipped with a self-made sidecar. During their ride, having left Long Beach, California on May 24, 1913, they marked the trail for other motorcyclists like Cannonball Baker to follow, and eventually arrived in New York City on September 6, 1913.
The free seminar, LONG DISTANCE RIDING ADVENTURES – 101 YEARS, or FRAZIER TALKS NAKED, dispels some of the myths and tales about the first motorcycle adventure riders while sharing numerous secrets and exposing naked truths of modern day adventure travel. Seminar presenter, Dr. Gregory W. Frazier, has himself circled the world five times and is currently on a pit stop during a sixth attempt to “girdle the globe.” Author of 14 books, producer of 10 films on motorcycling and well-known Adventure Editor-at-Large and columnist for several motorcycle publications, Frazier says of his own adventures, “I hate adventure that involves snakes or sharks, or falling down when motorcycling au natural.”
DOWN AND OUT IN PATAGONIA, KAMCHATKA AND TIMBUKTU, Frazier’s latest book, is a recounting of a lifetime of global motorcycle travel and adventure. Published by the world’s largest motor book publisher, www.motorbooks.com, the all color coffee table book has been described by industry insiders as “Amazing!”
Frazier will be available at BOB’S BMW Saturday afternoon to autograph books (bring your own or buy one from BOB’S), “schmooze, kiss babies and mix with like-minded motorhead adventurers of any year, type, make or model motorcycle.”

If you’re helmet is worn out, more than five years old, been dropped, crashed, passed down from a friend, or never properly fitted in the first place, it is’nt safe…PERIOD. NOTE: All new helmets are required to have their production date stamped on them so if you can’t find the date, you definitely need a new one!
Based on extensive safety research and testing, all major helmet manufactures agree it is important to replace your helmet every five years. Over time, the material slowly loses its protective qualities. As time passes, the EPS (expanded polystyrene) foam, hardens and after about 5 years the materials are no longer able to protect you in the event of an impact. Those of you with children are probably familiar with this. Similar rules apply to the protective qualities in car seats.
Not to mention if you weren’t properly fitted for your helmet, you very well could be riding around in a helmet that does not even fit which as you can imagine will not protect you as it is designed to do if you were in an accident.
About Bob’s Helmet Trade-In Program
In an effort to help the riding community stay safe, any motorcycle helmet brought to Bob’s during the month of April 2015, can be traded in to receive an on-the-spot rebate equivalent to 10% of the value of any new helmet purchase. This offer applies to in-store only and is valid only for motorcycle helmets. Helmets traded in will be destroyed and disposed of by Bob’s staff. The offer cannot be combined with any other offer.
Bob’s stocks helmets in a wide variety of brands, colors, styles, and price ranges. Start the season off right by taking advantage of Bob’s Trade-In Helmet Program. Choose from Bob’s great selection of helmets and get the proper fitting you deserve from an industry expert.

Forget all the technical stuff. None of us have even a gram of input on this anyway.
Doesn’t anyone see the sheer beauty of the overall design concept here? BMW could build exactly what we are looking at here if they desired. They have the technical expertise and BMW dealers are in desperate need of a fresh cruiser offering.
BMW exited, mistakenly in my not so humble opinion (IMNSHO), a segment of the motorcycle market that occupies roughly a 40% share when the R1200C was cancelled. I was asked to present a written argument to the then head of BMW motorcycles worldwide (financial and otherwise) as to why the R1200C should go back into production and what specific changes I would suggest regarding price, standard equipment and options.
This was roughly 6 years back and I delivered it as requested. But the tooling had already been destroyed. Another mistake? Perhaps. But without existing tooling production was too costly to bring it back. That overall decision cost BMW and their dealers thousands and thousands of unit sales and countless loyal cruiser riders.
As for this exciting new W3 concept from BMW Motorrad — I say bring it on and bring it on and bring it on soon; I’ll take a black one with a black seat please.
