    New guy in Central CA

    Hello all, I just joined BMWMOA and thought I'd drop by to say hi. My current ride is an '07 R1200GS. It is identical to my first '07 GS that I totalled a couple years ago while playing on a dirt road. The new bike greatly prefers the highways. I recently completed my first Iron Butt Asociation Saddlesore 1000 and I've now got the long distance touring bug in a bad way. The GS is an outstanding tourer/ sport bike.

    I'm from Central California and my favorite ways to spend my time off are my family, my dogs (two Belgian Malinois) and my GS, in that order.

    Thanks for the welcome Oldhway.

    I'll be happy to give ride reports after my trips. I enjoy taking photos and sharing my rides. I look forward to reading and learning a lot from everyone else as well. Here are a couple pics just for fun:

    Welcome aboard - nice pictures - like the one of the sand dessert a lot.

    Plenty of stuff in the reginal and bike specific forums.

    The Hexhead has a very well developed DIY section to do standard maintanance yourself.

    I too want to get the Iron Butt bug - hoping to do a Saddlesore 1000 next summer.

    Come back often and share.
