About the BMW Motorcycle Club of Ottawa
Welcome to the BMW Motorcycle Club of Ottawa website. We're first and foremost a BMW motorcycle club but our practice has been to include people that ride other brands who enjoy the same activities and share the same values as our members.The Club was created in 1983. We became the first motorcycle chapter of the BMW Club of Canada (BMWCC) in 2006. We have also been a chapter of the BMW Motorcycle Owners of America (BMWMOA #145) and the BMW Riders Association (BMWRA #68) since 1985.We'd like to answer as many of your questions as possible and have included some typical Q & A's below.
