My name is Robert from Las Vegas and I ride the F800GS pictured below. If my bike looks familiar to you, it is the "F800GS poster child" for Jesse Bags on their sales site and trade shows. That photo was seven months, 8500 miles, a lot of Farkles and a few "naps" ago.
I came from bike / MTB racing and this is my first bike with a motor other than my own two legs... I'm lovin' it!
So far I've done several trips through Death Valley including a four day trip there that included Saline Valley Rd, Scotty's Castle, Furnace Creek Wash, Bishop, CA and Panamint Springs. I've also ridden up the CA coast through Big Sur, down to Big Bear and just came back from eight days riding in Alaska (Alaska was an F800GS rental).
Basically I joined BMWMOA just for the discounts and the rental discount in Alaska at AKRider paid for my membership a few times over. My first copy of the BMW magazine came today and I'm already marking my calendar for the Cedar City, UT weekend later this month and the Rally in Redmond next year.
Professionally I'm a Steadicam and Specialty Camera Operator for film and television. If you've seen the Country Music Awards, Shark Week, anything with Vegas aerials or even MTV Cribs you've probably seen my work.
I'm all about the gov't keeping their noses out of our business and the 2nd Amendment!
C'mon out to Vegas, ride or rent and lets go for a ride!
