Michael’s Optical Illusions & Visual Phenomena: If you are a motorcycle rider, check out this visual blindness illusion.  Object fixation can affect your riding by causing “blindness.”  This site also has some other interesting optical illusions.

Gateway Riders BMW Club: This is my local club, of which I am currently the newsletter editor.  If you are local to the St. Louis area and you think you might be interested in joining us, please feel free to attend any of our rides, events or a meeting.  We meet at 7:30 p.m. on the 3rd Wednesday of each month (except June, July and December) at Spazio's, located in the Comfort Inn across Page Avenue from Westport Plaza.  If you would like to come at 6:30 p.m. to eat and socialize before the meeting, by all means please do.

The BMW Motorcycle Owners of America: If you own a BMW motorcycle, you should be a member.  It's the "Essential BMW Motorcycle Accessory."  Don't miss the national rally in West Bend, Wisconsin, July 12-15, 2007!

The Dean of BMW Motorcycles: This is Jeff Dean's site.  Jeff's got lots of information about BMW motorcycles and accessories on his site.  If you've got a question, you can probably find the answer here.

Internet BMW Riders: This is a BMW mailing list where BMW riders gather around a Cyberspace campfire.  In addition, the site's got a nice Marketplace and good technical information.

David Stafford's Links: I have a similar list of links in hard copy, but there is no reason to duplicate it because David's already done it for me!  You can find dozens of links here, ranging from personal sites, to touring and exploring, to mapping, to clothing, to manufacturers.  Unfortunately, David does not list my site!

BMW Maintenace and Repair: Here are more than 100 pages of BMW motorcycle troubleshooting, repair and maintence tips for older BMWs.  The site also has a dictionary of BMW terms, a history of BMW emblems, and more links.

Other Links

Woot is a unique site.  Woot sells one item a day at discount.  Once it's gone, it's gone.  If you are looking for a good deal on something you don't need, sold with a little humor, check 'em out.  Be sure to read the FAQs... pretty funny.

St. Louis Cycling Club: I'm a life member of the St. Louis Cycling Club, which is the oldest continuously operated bicycle club in the U.S.  Before I began my motorcycling hobby, I was a bicycle tourist, racer and race official.  I was not any good at racing, so I eventually put my efforts toward officiating and became a Category 1 official, which is the highest level reachable in this country (or it was in the mid '90s when I retired from officiating).

EWA: EWA is a motorsports diecast model and magazine company out of New Jersey.  This company ships fast and has great customer service.

RV-Info: If you can't live without your email while traveling, you can find information here about getting connected to the Internet when you are camping.  This is an RV site but it's also useful for tent campers. 

Wi-Fi enabled parks: Here's a site where you can find out what parks have Wi-Fi available. This is a pdf file, so if you don't have Acrobat Reader, you can download it.

Wire-Sculptured Trees: Gerald Sanders makes great looking trees out of wire.

St. Louis Lampwork Society: The SLLS is the local lampworker's club. "Lampworking" means making glass beads.

Glasshopper Studio: This is the place where I make my glass beads and buy jewelry supplies.
