The National Motorcycle Museum in Anamosa, Iowa, will be opening an exhibit of the British Biker Cooperative. This is a momentous honor for the BBC to be recognized by the NMM as a well-founded, respected and time-honored motorcycle organization dedicated to the preservation of the British motorcycle.
Due to my history with the BBC, and through my association with the NMM over the past several years on projects, I have had discussions regarding an exclusive BBC exhibit celebrating the many accomplishments and cooperative efforts of the membership over the many years to fulfill the BBC mission. Last week I met with the NMM Director Bill Barber at the museum and delivered a prime selection of BBC archives to seal the deal for a BBC exhibit featured within the British motorcycle display section of the museum.
The NMM plans to have the BBC exhibit open by the National Motorcycle Museum Vintage Rally on June 22-24, 2018. This offers the BBC a great Reason-to-Ride to the NMM event.

The race season final results are in. In the Midwest Region I finished 1st in the Classic 60's 650 class and 2nd in Sportsman 500. Nationally I am ranked 4th on the 650 and 6th on the 500. Great results for a less than complete season with 3 1st place finishes and 3 2nd place finishes on the 650 being a highlight of the season. Also scored a 2nd a 3 3rd place finishes with the 500 that I'm extremely proud of. A complete report can be found in the next "Knews". I want to thank each and everyone of you that supported me this year especially the British Biker Cooperative for choosing me as their club sponsored racer.
The British Biker Cooperative Celebrates
the 38th Anniversary of their Annual Motorcycle Rally & Show
Featuring the "Need for Speed"
January 1, 2018 - Milwaukee, Wisconsin - The British Biker Cooperative (BBC) has enthusiastically and very successfully promoted the rich heritage of the British motorcycle in the United States for over three decades. Their membership enjoy all facets of British motorcycling past and present through their active participation in motorcycle events throughout the United States and beyond. The BBC is most recognized for their annual Rally that has drawn thousands of motorcyclists over the years into the unique experience of British motorcycling in the United States.
On July 20-22, 2018, the BBC will celebrate their 38th Annual British Biker Cooperative - Motorcycle Rally and Show featuring the "Need for Speed" at Eagle Cave Natural Campground in Blue River, Wisconsin. The event offers a weekend of activities including group rides and bike games, a Motorcycle Show, Friday night movie, band Saturday night, comfortable shaded camping with dedicated quiet areas, and refreshments. An assortment of on-site amenities include a restaurant, camp store, showers, and cave tours through Wisconsin's largest commercial cave. The event formally kick-starts on Friday, but the BBC encourages riders to arrive early to avoid the rush. The BBC Rally location is 60 miles due west of Madison, Wisconsin near the Wisconsin River and features many area attractions including rides along the majestic Mississippi River, Frank Lloyd Wright's Spring Green, and The House on the Rock.
This event offers a great opportunity to see both rare vintage and late model British motorcycles in action on some of the best riding roads in the Midwest. All motorcycle enthusiasts are welcome.
