    Not in Kitsap county but in Thurston county, just south of you. Wife and I are both riders - 06 1200RT and 04 1150RT for the road and '10 G650GS & '13 F800GS for gravel. In the last year been doing more road than gravel. Try and ride as much as possible. I know of one other 1200GS rider in Kitsap county. Rode with him once - good guy. I occasionally get together with a few other riders but mostly spur-of-the-moment solo riding (I'm retired).

    Know the BMW Washington Riders are pretty active in your area. I haven't made it to a meeting yet. I have bikes serviced at South Sound BMW in Fife. Good shop. They occasionally organize rides too. In fact, they have a "Snow Camp Ride" planned in mid January. Too cold for me.

    Hope this helps.

    I'm always up for chatting & riding. Though I'm not in Kitsap county either, I don't mind driving a little to meet up for a ride. I live in Rochester, Thurston county.

    New to Keyport

    We are new to Keyport/Kitsap County and I would love to connect with any local riders. Riding a 2005 R1200GS, and she tends to lead me astray and far away. LOL

    Welcome to Kitsap Kounty!

    You might guess by my handle where we live.

    I ride an S, so don't tend to go so far afield (ha ha) as you GS'ers, but tootle around the Peninsula and up north a bit.

    You might want to check out WSBMWR, their online newsletter "The Shaft" is open to all readers. My membership application is in the mail to them now. Their current club president is local, he rides a GS, an S, and an Airhead. I believe their monthly club breakfast meetings are open to all comers, and think the next one is in November at Bremerton Airport Restaurant...

    Cheers!

    I'm in Spokane County and would be willing in the summer to make day trips or even overnight trips to the coast. Getting me a sleeping bag and tent and all lol.

    I'll jump in the mix! Welcome. I keep my R1200gs in either Chimacum or Oak Harbor (Island County), not sure of the county for Chimacum. When I finally get back out that way I would love to join up for a ride and camp. One can camp on the beach in La Push!

    Jefferson County.. Not to far out from me. If I wasn't working and the weather was more to my liking I would be out that way more often.

    Too bad about that "working" thing...looks like a sunny week coming up for the Kitsap peninsula this week with temps moving into the sixties. Keeping fingers crossed in Seabeck.
