BMW Classic Live for Club Members

Since 2008, BMW Classic, in its magazine "BMW Classic live", provides information on major events in BMW history such as the legendary annual general meeting of 1959, big jubilees such as 40 years of BMW M GmbH and of course details of vehicle history. There are still some remainders of the various editions on stock which now should be reduced due to logistical reasons.

For this reason BMW Classic offers all members of official BMW Clubs through 30th September 2014 issues of the magazine "BMW Classic live" for free (see listing).

Please note: the magazines are not for resale! The offer is valid while stocks last and until 30th September 2014!
Interested clubs and members can use the order form to order the requested issues. The order form is to be sent to: and

Next Summer Rides

The great riding weather continues and we are looking to take advantage of it.  

Victoria to Sooke, July 20

On Sunday, July 20, we are on our way to the BW Prestige Oceanfront Resort in Sooke.  We will meet at the Tim Hortons in the Home Sense Plaza located off Millstream Road and McCallum Road at 8:15 AM for an 8:30 departure.  In packets of 5 – 6 riders, we’ll wind our way through the Highlands, across Esquimalt Lagoon, out through East Sooke to the BW Prestige Oceanfront Resort for a buffet brunch.  If you plan to come, please let me know by Thursday evening so I can reserve the correct number of seats.

Port McNeill, August 2-4

Two weekends after the Sooke brunch, we will be on our way to Port McNeill.  I currently show 12 riders having said they would attend and I know that there have been six reservations made at the Black Bear and Port McNeill Inn.  If you have not made arrangements, accommodation is an issue.  In addition to ourselves the Porsche Auto Club will apparently be in Port McNeill that weekend as well.  So if you do not already have a place to stay, your should see about reservations before you ride north.  For those who have accommodations, could you let me know if you have a spare bed in your room or are willing to add a cot and we may be able to handle a few more.  Those who need accommodation, let me know and we’ll see if we can pair you up with another club member.  I have attached the outline for the weekend for everyone’s information.
