The elections for club officers are held during the November Meeting.  Graeme, Jackie & Chris are stepping down from their positions as President, Treasurer, and Secretary.  Rich French wants to assume the position of Treasurer.  The club depends on it's members for input and  ideas to drive future endeavors and the betterment of the club for all members.  There is a lot of skill and talent within the membership and we call on all club members to consider filling these leadership positions to drive LSBMWR to its next phase of evolution.
Keith Smith - club member and local KLIM rep discussed the recent AIM Expo in Orlando, Florida.  Keith also served us with the latest offering from Schuberth Helmets and has a very limited selection of vendor demo helmets for sale at a discount.  Contact Keith for selection.
Ride Recap:
Hill Country Ride  (Ben)
October Breakfast Ride  (Colin)
Great route, great friends and great food.  All is well.
Craig Olsen completed an Iron Butt event of 1,500 miles in 24 hours.  He made 1,527 miles with 11 minutes to spare.  By my calculation that is just shy of 64 MPH average speed.  Cudos to Craig's nephew, at 18 years old, became the youngest rider to complete this Iron Butt distance.
