I am excited to announce that our featured speaker for this month’s meeting will be Bill Dragoo the owner of Dragoo Adventure Rider Training (DART). As a moto-journalist, Certified BMW factory-trained off-road instructor, and Certified Motorcycle Safety Foundation Rider Coach, Bill Dragoo never strays far from adventure.
Setting goals since his Eagle Scout days, Bill is also a certified flight instructor, has earned commercial pilot ratings in powered aircraft, seaplanes and sailplanes, is an accomplished sky diver and scuba diver, and has won numerous competitions in motocross, cross-country mountain biking, sailboat racing, and adventure riding. Bill has won two Tour de Dirt mountain bike state championships, has completed a double century bicycle ride (200 miles in a single day) and has fulfilled his dream of an unsupported, solo transcontinental bicycle ride across the northern tier of the United States.
He has been on the podium at the Rawhyde Adventure Rider’s Challenge two of the three times he has competed, with first and second place finishes, and represented his country as one of three men competing with Team USA in the 2010 BMW GS Trophy held in South Africa. He has ridden motorcycles on five continents and has hiked through the Himalayas to Mount Everest Base camp with his lovely wife Susan.
Bill will share great tips and techniques that will apply to not only to adventure riders but many that apply to all riders. There will be time for questions and answers and with his breadth of experience in riding and traveling there will be a lot we all can learn and grow from.
Please register so we know how many members and guests to expect. Business meeting starts at 7 p.m. But join us at 6 p.m. for dinner and some socializing! Bring your significant other or a guest to join in!
