MYRON BEACHY

Treasurer

My dad loved to ride and rarely left home on his bike without me. At fourteen I got my endorsement and purchased my first motorcycle, a 250 Yamaha Virago. Growing up in Tennessee the mountains were always close and next curvy backroad was only a short straight stretch away. I moved to Florida for a job opportunity and started riding with Todd Sandlin. After attending a few club meetings and rides I joined BMWNEF and am looking forward to contributing to the club in any way I can.

PEDRO AFABLE

Elected Director & Rally Chair

Pedro joined BMWNEF in 2018 and attends monthly meetings with his wife, Petra, and twins boys, Andreas and Mateo. He rode his first motorcycle in 1980 and immediately fell in love with the sport. He hopes his sons, who take turns being passengers, also inherit the passion. Pedro was part of the Food Committee during the 2018 and 2019 Winter Rallies and is looking forward to participating in other club events. He has lived in various states (California, Colorado, and Minnesota) before moving to Florida in 2014. Although the year-round riding in Florida is nice, he misses riding the curvy backroads.
