#GivingTuesday

give copy

Everyone has heard of Black Friday and Cyber Monday, but what about #GivingTuesday?

The concept is simple. Basically, you’ve got to give it away to keep it, so after days of deal grabbing and shopping pandemonium, join this social movement that started in 2012 and give back!

Bob’s BMW is making a donation today to Grassroots Crisis Intervention Center, thanks to the overwhelmingly great response to our weekends sales (NOW extended through Friday!), and we ask you to join us on #GivingTuesday to help make a difference.

Bob’s BMW is an official collection center for Grassroots Crisis Intervention Center so if you are local, please on your next visit to Bob’s BMW bring in microwavable meals (not frozen!) and pop-top soups/stews to be donated to families in emergency shelters.

To learn more about Grassroots Crisis Intervention Center and/or make a monetary donation online today, CLICK HERE.

Not local? Another charity Bob’s BMW has supported for decades is The Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation. Each year this organization hosts motorcycle rides throughout the nation. You can make a donation online and be part of the solution to the problem of childhood brain tumors.

Thank you for your generosity and best wishes to you and your family this holiday season,

Ride-2-Brunch-2-Do-Good

Watkins Glen Brunch

Watkins Glen, NY | September 4-7, 2015

Bob will be repeating his successful and very enjoyable Ride-2-Brunch-2-Do-Good event at the Finger Lakes BMW Rally over the Labor Day weekend again this fall. The ride and brunch is small, intimate and tickets are limited and must be purchased in advance.

Last year there were 15 participants for the inaugural event and is limited to just 17 so it is first RSVP, first paid and first to have fun and do good. The cost remains at $100 per person and this excellent brunch at one of the highest rated dining establishments in the entire Finger Lakes Region includes the participants choice of 1 appetizer, a salad, a seasonal entrée, dessert, coffee, any non-alcoholic beverages and if they wish one glass of wine, beer or champagne.

The event begins with a very enjoyable and spirited 75 minute (+-) ride starting at 9:30 AM sharp that uses beautiful secondary roads between the Rally location at Watkins Glen State Park and the Stonecat Café in the little town of Hector, New York. There is live Jazz music playing while we dine, converse and otherwise enjoy ourselves.

All net proceeds from this FUNdraiser are donated to the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation® through their annual Ride for Kids® event which Bob participates in and escorts one of the Star kids in his sidecar. That event will be held on Sunday, September 27 in Ellicott City, Maryland should you be interested in joining us there too.

Additional donations can also be handed to Bob but outright contributions are always welcome. If you can’t join Bob please go to the link below and support the great work the PBTF® does. The PBTF® is a federally registered 501(c)(3) charitable nonprofit organization. Bob and Bob’s BMW are fast approaching the $30,000 target for FUNdraising by 9-26-15 but we are not there yet; you could be the one to make that happen.

The full disclosure: Bob is a longtime supporter, fundraiser, past RFK® event leader and currently serves as a member of the PBTF BOD. He’s thankful that neither his immediate or extended family or any of his fantastic staff and their families have a child affected by this terrible disease.

To join the fun and fundraising event email or call Bob at the details below his signature or stop by the dealership with your check or credit card; any of the staff can accept payment and a positive RSVP if he’s not there.

Trade In Helmet Program – We’re Investing In Your Safety

Helmet Trade In

helmet-order

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.

IMG_3366.JPGNot 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.

COMING SOON – NEW RULES ON 95:

Article from 95 Express Lanes
November 14, 2014

EZPassWhen the 95 Express Lanes open, motorcyclists can use the Express Lanes anytime without paying a toll.

You can travel toll-free on the 95 Express Lanes 24 hours a day, seven days a week and you do not need an E-ZPass® on your motorcycle to take the Express Lanes.

If you already have an E-ZPass on your motorcycle, you can leave it in place when you travel on the 95 Express Lanes. The system will detect that you’re traveling via motorcycle and not charge you a toll.

The Express Lanes end north of Edsall Road. Standard HOV rules will apply on I-395:

  • As a motorcyclist, you’ll be able to head north on the 95 Express Lanes and continue on to the I-395 HOV lanes no matter the time of day
  • You need three people in the car (including you) and your E-ZPass® FlexSM set to HOV mode to travel toll-free on the 95 Express Lanes
  • E-ZPass Flex works like a standard E-ZPass on all other Virginia toll roads and wherever E-ZPass is accepted – regardless of the position of the switch
  • Learn more about the Express Lanes transition area

Learn more about E-ZPass and the 95 Express Lanes »

Prepare now so you’re ready to take the 95 Express Lanes when they open.

The transition from HOV lanes to express lanes system will bring added benefits for motorcyclists – including relief from the current bottleneck at Dumfries where the HOV lanes end and access to new locations in Stafford County, Tysons Corner and Ft. Belvoir.

Baltimore-Washington Ride for Kids®

-September 15 posted by Ride for Kids®

2014 Ride for Kids in Baltimore and WashingtonBeautiful skies and warm air accompanied more than 200 participants at the 23rd Baltimore-Washington Ride for Kids on Sept. 14. The event had raised $113,105 for the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation by ride time.

The event’s Stars were the seven local brain tumor survivors who led the ride from Turf Valley Resort in Ellicott City: Gabriel, Maggie, Nick, Olivia, Paige, Ruxy and Yosef.

“Because of you all, we are finding inspiration which is leading to progress and hope,” Dr. Chetan Bettegowda of Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine told the crowd. “There used to be dozens, now we have hundreds and thousands of people around the world working on research for pediatric brain tumors.”

As of Sept. 14, the individual, motorcycle club/chapter and motorcycle business with the most raised were Bob Henig ($22,775), GWRRA MD-B ($14,161) and Bob’s BMW ($33,568). The top non-motorcycle group was Team Gabriel ($6,790).

The event is still collecting donations online at www.rideforkids.org. Fundraisers will receive incentive credit through Oct. 14.

Joel Gladding won the drawing for a new Honda motorcycle, and a Cardo Scala Rider TeamSet went to Jimmy Tragle. Bruce Hill won a Tour Master gift card.

Thank you to the dedicated volunteers who organized the event. This year’s task force leaders were Tom Chicca and Marcy Rich.
