  Dear Friends, fellow Rotarians and co-riders,

After three successful years as IFMR President, Raymond passed the baton into my hands on the occasion of the RI Convention in Toronto. He did a great job.

I have the honour of being the International President for the years 2018 - 2021.

Today Rotary Fellowships are more important than ever. They bring people together and establish real friendships all over the world regardless of race, religion, colour or nation. IFMR is one of the largest and most active fellowships. It is open to all Rotarians motorcycle enthusiast.

Still a lot of Rotarian motorcyclists are not yet members of our fellowship, some even do not know about its existence. They are missing a lot. IFMR means friendship, riding adventures, petrol talks and a lot of fun. Help by disseminating this information throughout the entire Rotarian world. IFMR is open to every Rotarian motorcycle enthusiast.

In this turn of office I would like to strengthen our international activies and promote the cooperation between the Chapters. There is strength in numbers - in union even more. IFMR offers the unique opportunity to travel the world with real friends. We all should use this tool more often. And there are still a lot white spots on the map. Already at the beginning of my term, after months of planning with the sponsoring Chapter, the Chapter Poland was founded. It started with a great ride in the Masurian Lake District, including a charity campaign for disabled citizens in the area. Perfect. Hopefully, there will be a new Chapter in South Africa next year, a revival of IFMR Russia and maybe some activity in the Baltic States.

I intend to ride with you on as many tours in as many Chapters as possible. Please, do not hesitate to contact me with any questions, remarks or proposals.

Four wheels move the body - two wheels move the soul.

Take care!

Kind regards,


Dirk Jesinghaus

  Dear rotarians, dear visitors,

A big Aussie G'day, to my fellow IFMR members worldwide and visitors to our Fellowship,

I'm very pleased to be serving the Fellowship as the international secretary IFMR 2016-2019. Please take some time to have a look at the activities of our Chapters from around the globe.

While I do still have a 'JOB' and haven't yet entered that dreamtime period of the Retiree, I commit to prioritising my time to assist all those that ask for it (on IFMR matters) and ensuring the lines of communication flow smoothly. The one think I ask of our Chapter secretaries/presidents is that you respond at your earliest convenience to requests, which I expect will be limited, even if just to confirm you received the communication and don't have any comment. That'll save me annoying you with continual follow up messages.
If anyone has any comments on, or contributions to, the content of this homepage, please do not hesitate to send it through. The more interesting we can make it, the more that members will use it.

Ride Safe

Peter M J Brown

PS. Please remember if you're visiting another Chapter's area, to make contact beforehand so some fellowship can be arranged. I really enjoyed meeting those IFMR members (and friends of IFMR) who participated in the 2017 International Ride in Australia (IFMR AIR17). *Look for the ride report on the Australian Chapter web site. I highly recommend you consider participating in an international ride, if you possibly can.
