My name is Paul. I've been a BMWMOA member since I bought my first beemer in 1978; an R80/7. Since then I've owned a R100RT and now a R1100RT. I'm a long distance solo rider. Solo in that I don't tend to join clubs a do group rides. I like the freedom of deciding where I want to go without having to negotiate. I'm not adverse to riding with others I just don't really know too many other riders in the area.
I live in RI and VA because my job is in DC. I commute to work on the beemer year round and do a lot of weekend riding around the VA, WV back roads. I'm leaving July 1 for a 16 day trip that will end up totaling about 6,200. Counting the days.
