200MBB: Mary-Anna Rae, member since 2002

Welcome to another entry in our “not that kind of doctor” series of episodes here on 200 Miles Before BreakfastMary-Anna Rae is a lifetime member of the MOA, having joined our ranks in 2002 to find – get this – other BMW riders! She succeeded in that, and has spent the last [koff] almost 20 years riding all over the world with her Beemer Buddies … including a fella named (no kidding) Thor.

When she’s not out somewhere riding, you can find Mary-Anna perfecting UX, which other geeks call “user experience” and normal people call “something I’ll never understand, but interact with every day, only I don’t know it because … UX!” Suffice it to say when it comes to how you interact with all sorts of devices, items and systems, Mary-Anna and other UX experts like her have had their mitts on it, making sure your experience is as seamless as possible.

200 Miles Before Breakfast is a podcast by, for and about the members of the BMW Motorcycle Owners of America, where you get to know the MOA one member at a time.
