Message from the CEO for those considering joining BMW Motorrad Club Japan.(Message from the CEO:Katsunori Namikawa)

Thank you very much for visiting the BMW Motorrad Club Japan (BMCJ) website.

As you may know, BMCJ functions as one of BMW AG's accredited international clubs—clubs with a long history and tradition. We continuously strive for increased quality based on member ownership of the club .

We will continue to earnestly strive to improve our member services with efficient use of our limited resources. Club members get access to our various road services, theft insurance, a club magazine and more. In addition, as a part of our services from this year and in collaboration with BMW Japan, we will resume offering rider's training, now in a new format to serve a wider range of riders. BMCJ will continue to offer rider's training as a club service. Our training is sure to let you experience the splendor of the safety and performance of BMW motorcycles.

We also gather our national members once a year for our annual National Rally. This year, we have settled on the Noto Region in Ishikawa Prefecture as our destination. Details will be updated periodically on this site. There are also various events planned and organized by member volunteers in our regional blocks where you can register for membership. We hope that you will register for BMCJ membership and come out to join us in Noto.

In addition, from this year, we will be trying to step up our international activities through the worldwide club organization network. At first we will be supporting riders looking to touring Europe, while also looking to mutually accept any foreign touring riders as well .

Finally, we are currently considering a radical transformation of our operations to a more stable club system for all of our members. We will continue to plan various programs and support club members in their riding. I hope you will join us.
