Member personal information (street address, phone number and email address) is no longer available on the club web site due to privacy concerns. If you need contact information for another club member, send an email to the the Treasurer who will handle your request.
When sending a new or reply email to the group, the reply-to email address that you are using must match the your email address as listed within the group. This protects the group from receiving unwanted email from 3rd parties (spammers) who are not members of the group. If these 2 email addresses do not match, your email to the group will be rejected.
When you receive an email from a group member and then wish to reply to only that member, please use Reply, not Reply All when you send the message. If you use Reply All, then your reply will also go to the club's email address, firstname.lastname@example.org, and all members of the club will receive a copy of your email message. Many club members are very sensitive about receiving unwanted email of this type and it causes dissatisfaction with both you as a club member and the club in general.

Lee Becker - President
I was born in England and raised in Northern California. Yes, it explains a lot about me. I am a 20 year retiree of the US Air Force where I was a Motorcycle Safety NCO for multiple units, a MSF Rider Coach for 3.5 years, and an avid lover of all things two-wheeled.
I first started riding in 1999 and still own my first bike, a 1999 Kawasaki ZRX1100. Yes, it is the bike I owned when I first became a member of the Pikes Peak BMW Club in 2009. I recently took up off-road riding and adventure style riding, which has opened a new chapter in my riding life.
I am married to Bex Becker, my lovely, crazy and motorcycle centric wife. We have no children but 3 aging, awesome dogs that soak up our free time and money. As a member, and now President, I have always hoped to bring people together in the real and cyber world of motorcycling. I hope that everyone can find something hugely positive about the club over the next year.
Tony Galles is our club Vice President. Tony's love for motorcycling began at the age of 16 when he worked after school and weekends for a BMW and Yamaha dealer. A military career kept him away from bike ownership at times, but his passion for riding has endured. Tony is a GS rider, BMWMOA member, and a former CHCA, PPIHC and HRMC ice racing competitor.
Deb has been a member of the club for a long time. She does a lot of work for BMW MOA as well, including coordinating and putting on some great rallies. Deb is one of a number of long distance female riders in the club.
A thankless job that Susanna does very well. A fixture in the Pikes Peak club as well as BMW MOA, Susanna loves doing the newsletter, but isn't all that thrilled with having to write the articles herself. So contribute, already! More to come!
