    Good afternoon fellow riders! I am still recuperating from the travel blues 😜 not from only missing Mexico but also working hard on promoting the BDR Angel Journey. Chad, Dennis, and I spent a lot of time at our booth during the 2018 AIMExpo meeting a lot of great people doing some awesome things for the motorcycling community. Even though folks are there promoting their businesses and ideas to the world, everyone has one thing in common — Motorcycles. Regardless if you ride a Harley or a BMW GS everyone is generally supporting others to do good and that is a really cool experience. I highly recommend attending one if you haven't yet and support the community of motorcycling! Here is a picture of our booth that was on display, we are proud to say that we were the only exhibitor that captured some of the essence of adventure riding!

    Whats happening everyone! Its been a minute since our last post! We had some awesome things happen in the last couple weeks. First we flew over to Mexico City to attend a international event in Morelia, Mexico to support our chapter. We had a blast and were able to do two water projects while attending the convention, the first one we did was at a school in Michoacan and the second at a health clinic in a rural area. The school installation was a basic water filtration install where the children were able to have clean water while attending classes throughout the day. The health clinic install was to provide the small surrounding community clean water almost 24/7! After our trip in Mexico, we jumped on the airplane again to attend the 2018 AIMExpo in Las Vegas where we were able to present and gain support for the BDR Angel Journey. The BDR Angels Journey is a fundraising ride that will benefit Motorrad Angels. Chad Warner and Dennis Godwin will ride 9 BDRs in 31 days, which comes out to 9,000 miles off road and 5,000 on road. These crazy goons are doing this to raise $50,000 and awareness for Motorrad Angels! Please follow the journey and show support. Two links below to the sites for more info 😇. Also here is a picture from our trip to Morelia, with more to come! https://www.angeljourneys.org/ & https://www.motorradangels.org/

    Whats happenin everyone! As always I hope you all had some safe riding this past weekend and got to squeeze in some football. We had some pretty cool projects happen recently, I'll be sure to post the pictures below. One was in Colombia and the other in Mexico both at schools that had no clean drinking water. I might have mentioned this before but to reiterate, it is so important that children have access to clean drinking water especially at their school. When you take the risk away from them being able to get sick from bad water, they no longer have to miss school and can focus on their education. Also we will be attending some cool conventions coming up, one in Las Vegas and another in Morelia, Mexico. If any of you fellow xladvers are in the area come by and say hello!

    Hey Everyone! Just a few updates, everyone has made it back from Colombia safely and from what they tell me had a blast. Right now we are currently in the process of further fundraising for our chapter in India and our ground team there is continuing to work on locating areas that need clean water. I did find out some really cool news about our Mexico chapter as well. So they were invited to attend an event this past weekend, while attending and representing Motorrad Angels, the team was insisted on speaking to everyone teaching them about our cause which lead to being on a radio show, and again which is now leading to be on a TV SHOW and a motorcycle magazine! We have full support from this group and they are willing to help our chapter there anyway they can. It's pretty amazing the people you meet when continuing to do what you love but help people along the way! Here's a pic of our chapter captains rocking their jerseys during the event.

    Good Afternoon fellow riders! Just wanted to give a little update on the team. They are are on their last leg of Tour Colombia and plan on flying back Saturday/Sunday. It has been super successful and they have been able to help many people along the way! We are in the process of teaming up with others to offer more tours like this in the future. The tours that we are involved with are similar to many but we add one very important component to the aspect of adventure, that is to simply help someone along the way. People are able to enjoy adventure riding in a new place yet take just a moment of help someone or a community in need. The gratitude and fulfillment one receives is beyond words. Be on the lookout for what comes next! Oh and for those living on the East Coast, particularly the Carolinas, Georgia, and others that may be affected by Hurricane Florence please be safe this weekend and keep the Motorrad Angels updated! ** Hurricane Flo appears to becoming weaker but nonetheless always prepare in the event it decides to change drastically. **

    Hey everyone! Hope you all had a great weekend and got past the Monday blues.. 😉 The team is still having a great time in Colombia with lots of riding. They are at Crater Del Volcan Nevado Del Ruiz which looks gorgeous, I would share a picture but I'll let all you curious folk get out there and go see it firsthand! Aside from exploring Colombia and seeing beautiful sites, we have also been able to do some water projects. Along with some simple bucket systems they were also able to install a massive clean water reserve in Moudin, Colombia. Its seems they ran into a little rain forcing them to put on their trusty BMW rain suit aka Banana Suit 🤣🤣🤣. All is well today with the team as they continue in Colombia!

    Hey Everyone! As you can can see the team is having some good times in Colombia. I have to give them a warning though... BMW Motorrad Days Colombia starts today and Colombians are known to have a good time, according to WHO this is super contagious 😜. I don't have any awesome pics to share just yet, I am waiting for them to roll in once they get some down time from riding. Aside from the current trip, we have some really cool fundraising opportunities being planned in the near future. I have been speaking with ChildFund which is another great organization that helps impoverished youth, a lot of the work we do revolves around children. By implementing clean water filtration systems, we are not only creating sustainability within the community but it also invests in the well being of the children. When kids are no longer getting sick because of contaminated drinking water, they are able to go to school, get an education and hopefully preserve into having a successful adulthood. We are hoping creating a relationship with ChildFund will present some awesome opportunities in the future! Here is a pic of where the team is currently at! You can also follow them in real time, just visit the link! https://www.motorradangels.org/real-time-location/

    Good afternoon everyone! First thank you to all who participated in the High Sierra Rally, looks like everyone had a blast! I will be sending the tshirts to the winners tomorrow, so be on the lookout for some mail. Second the Motorrad Angels team is currently in Colombia for water projects as well as BMW Motorrad Days Colombia for fundraising. They will return to Costa Rica to grab their bikes, hit the road and head toward Panama conducting clean water installations along the way eventually making it to the Darien Gap. From there they will sail across to Colombia and continue the journey. Also I don't know if I mentioned this before but we now have a pledging system on our website! For as low as $5.00 a month, you can purchase 2 filters a year giving 200 people clean water for 5-7 years! Visit the link below to start a pledge! Oh and here is a pic from the weekend (I was trying to be at the High Sierra Rally in spirit 😉) https://www.motorradangels.org/donate/

    The weekend is almost here and some good riding is just around the corner! An update on the team, they have made it back safely into the US. They were able to store their bikes in Costa Rica with Elephant Moto, so you know they are good hands. After attending some rallies they will fly back into Costa Rica and continue onward. Today I really just wanted to put into words our gratitude for @XLADV and everyone here in the community. Everyone at Motorrad Angels is extremely gratitude for all the things XLADV does for our organization. The High Sierra Rally, Mohave National Preserve, and more to come produces incredible benefits to individuals. Not only does it help so many people around the world gain access to clean drinking water and raise awareness of our cause. But it gathers like-minded folk to have and enjoy an experience that doesn't happen everyday. Being able to do what you love but help people in the process is everything Motorrad Angels embodies. Its shows that you can live in California, ride motorcycles, and still help someone across the world. So thank you @XLADV for being a Motorrad Angel. Here is a pic of the one and only @Eric Hall back in Puerto Rico aiding relief to Hurricane Maria victims.

    Good afternoon fellow riders! The Motorrad Angels team is in San Jose, Costa Rica and they are preparing to head back to the US today. Dennis Godwin will be headed back to attend the High Sierra Rally and Tom Palmer to Colombia for BMW Motorrad Days Colombia! This trip has been another success, we were able to help a lot of people along the way. In other exciting news.. I am currently talking with like minded organizations about partnering/sponsorship, it is still early and nothing crazy has happened yet but still cool nonetheless! Its amazing talking with people who have the same goal in mind--helping others. And it doesn't matter whether your riding a motorcycle or flying a helicopter, as long as the job gets done! I will definitely keep you all updated. Enjoy the weather (if its nice out 😜).

    Whats happenin everyone! Some pretty interesting stuff happened yesterday. So as I mentioned before Nicaragua has been experiencing some political corruption and has resulted in many riots and protests. It has since calmed down for the most part, mainly peaceful protests. The team quickly made it through and got into Costa Rica yesterday, the border crossing process was smooth BUT they got held back by a peaceful protest Costa Rican fisherman were having! They hung out with everyone for about 4 hours before finding a place to stay. Now are in San Jose this morning enjoying the culture and scenery.

    Hey everyone, 4 more days until the weekend and some of you lucky souls get to enjoy the High Sierra Rally! The Motorrad Angels team spent the night in Nicaragua and have carried onward making it to Costa Rica this morning. It was calm going through and had beautiful weather! They were informed a protest was taking place somewhere throughout but they have become relatively peaceful at this point. In other news, we have been continuing to work on the establishment of our UK chapter. We have made some solid progress with riders who are becoming very involved. Soon they will be recruiting others to join and will organize events to raise awareness about issues with clean water. Like the United States, the United Kingdom doesn't really have a huge problem with clean water. Both of our infrastructures have it built in to where clean water is easily accessible just about everywhere. I drank tap water last night! But having international chapters everywhere whether they have clean water or not creates awareness of the problem. I wanted to share a clearer image of one of our bucket systems to show how simple the installment is and what a impact it can make. Remember 1 filter supplies 100 people with clean water for 5-7 years!

    Good Morning everyone, I hope that everyone had a safe weekend riding! A quick update on the team, they are pulling up to the border of Nicaragua now. Once they make it into the country, they will be continuing clean water projects throughout the area. Soon after they will be heading towards Costa Rica eventually making their way down to Panama where they will sail across the Darien Gap to Colombia to continue the journey! Also a big thank you to @XLADV and everyone participating in the High Sierra Rally, it is through our combined efforts whether in the field or at home that we can make a difference in other people's lives. Clean water is a huge issue all around the world but can be tackled with such a simple solution. Thank you all!

    Hey everyone! Buenas Tardes from the east coast. The team has made it to Honduras, the border crossing process was smooth taking only took an 1hr 1/2 and everyone was very helpful. They have been in constant contact with the BMW riding club there and immediately got a location where clean water was needed. Tom and Dennis went straight to a children's shelter to install filters to the untreated running city water. 54 children in total are now able to drink clean water! But keep in mind the filters last 5-7 years which will be able to supply even more children as they come into the shelter. Here is a cool picture of them with the group! Hope everyone is riding safe and enjoying the day.

    Hey Everyone! Its been a few days since I last posted. Just wanted to give you all an update on the team. They made it back to Guatemala safely! And are continuing clean water projects around the country with our Guatemala Chapter. They will also still be assessing the conditions of individuals that were affected by the volcano eruption and assist in anyway. Afterwards they are headed down towards El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua, and will stop in Costa Rica. For sometime between now and the last time the team was in Guatemala, Nicaragua has been seeing some unfortunate political events which resulted in many unwanted outcomes. We were forced to wait before entering into the country because of safety. It seems to have settled now and is relatively peaceful again so our journey continues onward! In other news, our chapter in Mexico has been doing some great work! Sam (one of our captains) has been working extensively on recruiting new members making the group even stronger. They have several fundraising events being planned and have already started new projects throughout the country!
