    Colorado Premiere...sweet theater.

    A HUGE thanks to Performance! Go visit their new mega gear store...one of the larger in the country now. I would also like to thank Wolfman, Colorado Motorcycle Adventures & Doubletake mirrors for their BDR support.

    I'm hoping some more CO premieres come to be.
    I've talked with Court about hosting a smaller showing/party at our new hdqs in Eagle. Would love to see a Western slope showing.

    Contact us (via the link above) if you'd like to help organize a NMBDR premiere in your area, or talk to your local dealership about hosting the NMBDR movie event at their location.

    I hope you're able to include Anchorage, Alaska as a place to show the movie!!! I should finish riding my bike to NM this spring/early summer and am looking forward to doing a lot of riding in NM, and AZ, and CO.... and seeing the movie would show wonderful places to check out. A good contact in Anchorage is Brendon at The Motorcycle Shop. Think Anchorage - think Anchorage!!

    BTW, I think it's totally unfair that places in NM, and lots of other states, have WAY more snow than we have here in Anchorage. Usually I'm able to ski on trails in town all winter long, but we've had a dearth of snow last winter and this winter and I have been reduced to riding my bicycle (with studded tires) to get exercise. I had green grass in my yard until we just got a dusting of snow today. ARGH! I never thought I'd be tempted to fly to ABQ in the winter to go skiing. How bizarre.

    It has happened that way in the past and I'd expect that again, but I'll check.

    I hear ya.

    I'm sure they've been contacted (All BMW dealerships have been), but sometimes it takes riders like yourself to prod your local shop contact to sponsor an event like this and have them contact the BDR people to sign up to host a premiere. The BDR group has a dedicated employee working on adding more premiere's, but many notices sent from them to shops fall upon deaf ears or get lost in the shuffle.

    Here is the contact:
