Google+ Community Page Available
As soon as Google opened the new communities feature for Google+, we established a G+ community for our club. Since opening the community page, that is where we have been posting our club updates for G+ users.

We will continue to maintain the Google+ page you are reading, in order to try reaching additional members and those interested in motorcycling, but most of our organization's Google+ activity will now occur on our G+ community page.

We are limiting joining the community to those who are local members of our BMW motorcycling club. If you are a club member and would like to participate, just request an invitation. If you are not a local member of our BMW club, we hope you will continue to visit our community for new information pertaining to motorcycling, and BMW motorcycles in particular.
