Details of the first two RJ theme bonuses.

We are starting off the RJ Theme in Hot and Spicy fashion with a pair of bonuses designed to separate riders from posers. We all look forward to seeing who will step up and earn time with some great BMR people while earning significant points via these inaugural 2020 RJ Theme bonuses .

No, it is not a coincidence that this pair of bonuses falls on Valentines Day weekend.

  • Reno is the ideal destination when leaving your spouse for a motorcycle trip on Valentine's Day weekend. Are we wrong on that? Yep, no doubt that we are wrong, and that's why these points are so strong.
  • Imagine Saturday evening, after earning big points at RJ215 ..hanging out with fellow BMR riders in downtown Reno Nevada USA? ...what could be better? The answer is:
  • Sunday morning, while many of your peers are out earning pathetic little points at Church theme locations, you can spend your Sunday morning with some cool BMR riders, earning HUGE points via RJ216 while dining at a whorehouse.
  • Yep, we know you're looking to make this work. Call your BMR friends, coordinate travel plans and point your bike to Reno NV on Valentine's Day Weekend for this Marriage Buster BMR pair of RJ-Themne bonuses.
  • Tom and I look forward to seeing you Saturday Afternoon 2020.02.15 15:00-16:00
  • Tom and I look forward to seeing you Sunday Morning 2020.02.16 09:00-10:00

RJ215

  • February 15th 2020; 15:00 to 16:00 (RenoTime)
  • 39.5283185, -119.8132705
  • 19 Points

This bonus is located in the heart of downtown Reno. Note: the mural pictured below is not the bonus, it is the location of the bonus. Use the image for landmark purpose only.

Your quality-effort image will consist of yourself, your placard, HIC and either/or RenoJohn/Tom Lettero.

RJ's or Tom's "Thumb-up" in your picture will signal to the scoring team that criteria has been met. Like all RJ bonuses it is your responsibility as a rider to meet any written or verbal requirements given by the sponsor(s) of the bonus. I can assure you that if you didn't ride your motorcycle to downtown Reno, you will not get points for this bonus, even though your motorcycle is not required in your picture.

Do you see the light?

Focus on the rider. That is what we're doing this year as we create bonus themes and invest in the BMR infrastructure. We always try to improve what we have in place and slowly roll in new functionality. There are a lot of moving pieces to this event ...as we continually work to create a great event for riding enthusiasts -and this year we're particularly excited about the rally.

What you can expect in BMR2020:

  • HUGE bonus listing which will have thousands of destination bonuses. Likely the largest bonus listing in BMR history and considerably more than last year. The themes this year are inspiring, straight forward and fun.
  • Additionally, the "Gas & Tires" Theme is returning, and again it will compliment the weekly 3-day rallies that have become a popular part of BMR.
  • And of course the meat and potato staples that we all expect from BMR will be on the table as well.
  • 3,443 hours in length. Wow!, one of the longest BMRs ever! Start date = January 01; 2020
  • Camaraderie. Bonus listing and partnerships with other organizations will create great opportunities to share your moto-bike fun and enthusiasm. We will continue to bring riders together at a common place and time. If you have ideas, please raise your hand.

Behind the scenes (techy stuff we've invested in):

  • Improved bonus submission flow and architecture including new Exchange servers.
  • Improved architecture to comment and share submissions on the website. We anticipate this will help riders better share their fun -and to a certain extent even integrate to personal social media.
  • Improved newsletter email send architecture ...which should help newsletters make it to your inbox.
  • Improvements to the BMR smartphone apps. Justin Long continues to apply his skills and wonderful contributions to BMR and you'll be the recipient of some great enhancements to the apps. And a reminder, the apps can be nice tools, but as always they are not mandatory!, they are optional.
