I'd mentioned before the unofficial creation and running by the BMWMOA of the BBIR: LINK
The alternative mileage contest runs the remainder of the year not covered by the traditional mileage contest sponsored by the BMWMOA: 13OCT08 through 10APR09.
I managed to ride 9417 miles between both my beemers, not bad I guess since I did not manage to get in any real long distance rides due to work schedules mostly.
It'll be interesting to see how I place in this one as it takes out of the running all the folks in the parts of the US where snow is actually a prohibitive factor in terms of riding.
