    At the GA BMW rally in May this year there was a police/state trooper who is a MC rider who gave a nice presentation and Q&A about riding smart and what the authorities did and did not want to see exhibited from MC riders. It was a good talk and I wish I had thought to ask a lot of questions when the opportunity was offered. Would a presentation like this be valuable to us? Perhaps I can find the presenter and what, if any, expense was involved.

    It ain't broke yet, but I can fix that!

    Let me improve it until it's inoperative!

    Rob,

    I have contact info for another very good presenter from the Georgia BMW Rally in 2009. I believe he is an emergency room doctor and does a great talk about first on the scene first aid do's and don'ts. I will PM this to you.

    At this point, I believe we're going to be more low key and x-nay the seminars.
