Happy to say that I'm a new member of BMWMOA. I'm a professional freelance writer based in Toronto, Canada and specialize in writing about motorcycling and travel. I write a column called Twistgrip for Sun Media newspapers. I've test-ridden several BMWs, including the new 650GS through Patagonia a few months ago (btw, you can read about it at www.patagoniaon2wheels.blogspot.com). Wish I could be at the rally this weekend! Looking forward to meeting more of you on the forum!
