Who Am I?“Those who believe without reason cannot be convinced by reason.” - James Randi
Last Updated , so I can keep track of myself.
I have been a BMW motorcycle rider since 1967. I still love the BMW R60/2, probably because it was my first motorcycle. In 1968 I founded the Madison (WI) BMW Club and in 1972 I co-founded the BMW Motorcycle Owners of America and Vintage BMW Motorcycle Owners. Today I ride BMWs from a 1954 R51/3 through a 2007 and 2014 R1200RTs, including an R68, an R67/3, a 1949 R24 and an R25/3 and of several of those wonderful R60/2s (including the red one below). You can find information on all these BMWs and others on my web site.
I wish to note who I am here in secular and common sensical terms for purposes of my humble website I am Jeff Dean, an obsessed motorcyclist (according to my long-suffering wife, Jillwho is absolutely correct), a motorcyclist instructor and coach, an architectural historian, a photographer of historic buildings, and in all other ways a wandering rider on the great twisting road of life.
I am a proud free thinker, secular humanist, and atheist, and life member of the Freedom from Religion Foundation. (Actually all believers are atheists when they are born or with respect to religions other than their own. I have just completed the journey and am no longer superstitious or a believer in ancient myths.)
