    Where: South Sound BMW Motorcycles

    Fife, WA 98424
    When: Saturday, January 26 - 6:15pm-9:30pm<o:p></o:p>

    Rene Cormier is that guy we all wish we had the time and conviction to be - he sold as many worldly possessions as he could and took off on his motorbike for, well, as long as he could. He'll be here in the store to give a slideshow presentation and talk about his adventures, and he'll even have the BMW he rode on here with him. This is a once in a lifetime chance to meet an incredible rider and an inspiration to us all. $12 per person, prepaid ticket purchased through our Parts Department required. Doors at 6:15, show starts at 7.<o:p></o:p>
    <o:p> </o:p>
    <o:p>Should be fun. The books was both fun and educational!</o:p>
    <o:p></o:p>
    <o:p>Thanks</o:p>

    Shouldn't this be in the vendor section?

    I am honestly not sure. I posted here simply because it is a local event. If the mods want it moved, please let me know.

    Thanks

    Other shows like this have been posted in this area with no problem. I don't see a problem with it but I'm not a mod. Hopefully it's not an issue.

    I don't think South Sound BMW is making much (if any) money off this event. It's a good public service event and they get free advertising out of it.

    Let the mods do their job and hope you enjoy the show!

    I look for regional events in this forum.

    I'm happy SSBMW continues to bring us great presentations like this!

    I wouldn't have found it in "Vendors".

    Yeah, I don't look in vendors unless I have cash. So I don't look in vendors.

    I regularly take advantage of the events put on by SSBMW and RWBMW. I was there last night for this show, and have to say that this was probably the best yet. Along with the content, the presentation was excellent. World travelers know how to communicate, and Rene Cormier was no exception.

    Our Puget Sound BMW dealerships don't have to put on any of these events, but I'm really glad they do.

    Thanks to all who attended the Rene Cornier show on Saturday. He is an amazing man and well worth having here at the shop.

    Thanks
