  Dear friends, dear Fellow Rotarians,

it is time to say goodbye. At least, with regard to my role as International President. The past years have been difficult. The pandemic has had a firm grip on the world and has thwarted or complicated many of our plans. So kudos to all of you who have actively kept our Fellowship alive despite the sheer circumstances. My thanks also go to the ever hardworking secretary Sunil. Working with him has been a constant enrichment and a real pleasure. Together we have achieved a lot: numerous new Chapters have been founded, the Fellowship is growing and flourishing. Fantastic. It was with great pleasure that I read all the reports about the numerous activities, how I would have loved to be there everywhere. As promised, I will make up for it in the next few years. It will be wonderful. IFMR is Rotary in its purest form. We build bridges between people and carry out outstanding social projects.

Keep it up, ad multos anos!

I wish Sunil and his secretary Hans-Dieter (a dream team...) the best of luck and success in the new term; please give them both the same trust and support as I was thankfully privileged to experience.
It has been a pleasure and great honour to serve you as International President, a great time of my life.

Take care of yourselves.

Heartfelt greetings
Yours in Rotary

  Hello Friends!

Welcome to the website of the International Fellowship of Motorcycling Rotarians (IFMR).

Originally started as a business fellowship organization, Rotary slowly got transformed into a service organization doing good the humankind. However, "fellowship" has always been its integral part.

Established in 1992, IFMR is one of the leading fellowship groups that has presence in over 50 countries with its 29 chapters and has around 2,800 motorcycling enthusiasts riding across the world.

The stint as the International Secretary of this amazing fraternity from 2019 to 2022 has been absolutely satisfying for me. Working closely with the Immediate Past President PDG Dirk Jesinghaus was a great learning experience. Together we not only started six new regional chapters from the scratch - Malaysia, Philippines, Egypt, Lebanon, Hungary and Japan, but also formalized the establishment of our East Africa Chapter. Covid taught us how to leverage the digital tools like Zoom for virtual meetings, Facebook groups and WhatsApp that brought the IFMR chapters closer than ever before.

Dirk was very inspirational as the International President and was always receptive to new ideas that made our teamwork effortless.

It is a pure honor to lead this group as the International President for the term 2022-2025. I personally see it as a wonderful opportunity to continue working on the good initiatives started together with Dirk, while also coming up some new ones with Hans-Dieter Riemer, who has been elected as the International Secretary for the second. The term will start with the establishment of our West Africa Chapter. Our efforts will continue to have the South Africa Chapter up and running in near future, while we also look forward to expanding our footprint in Asia.

They say, "You never see a motorcycle parked outside of a psychiatrist's office". Be it to foster the passion, kindle our love for bikes or just a reason to be happy, we at IFMR have our own good reasons to be behind the handlebar and ride with the flock. If you haven't found yours and wish to join IFMR, feel free to reach me or Hans and we shall guide you!

"You don't stop riding when you get old, you get old when you stop riding."

So, keep riding, stay young!

Yours in Rotary,
Sunil Telkar

  Dear Fellow Rotarians, friends and visitors!

A warm welcome from Northern Germany with our typical greeting "Moin". People from here do not talk too much: "Moin" is used day and night for welcome, good-bye, also Cheers etc.

It is an honour and privilege for me to follow Sunil as international secretary and serve this fellowship again supplying you topically on this website and beyond that.

This site shall not only address members of our fellowship, but also rotarians who are generally interested in motorbiking. Maybe we can awake your interest joining us in our comradly fellowship.

We ride on all five continents, realise so many awesome tours combining our common passion with the rotarian spirit and readiness to help others with charitable donations.

Some say: IFMR: Rotary at its best! Why? Because four wheels move the body, two wheels move the soul.

To guarantee an up-to-date information about our fellowship I necessarily need the legwork from our chapters to give a review of present and planned activities.
I`m looking forward to hearing from you, take care and always keep the rubber side down.

Yours in Rotary
Hans-Dieter Reimer
