    Thumbs up Hello to all

    Just joined the forum and MOA and also gifted to membership to friend of mine as a birthday gift...no bmw's for us yet, friend on 07 Suzuki Bandit and myself on 07 M109R LE. We are both Edmonton Fire Dept and always take annual trip together. We have often longed to tread down that fire road or dirt trail but our machines have limits.

    On track to buy GSA 1200 x 2 next year and hoping to score a gently used 2012 Triple Black. In the mean time I plan on just doing alot of reading and learning.

    We met 2 Fine Gentlemen at the Edmonton Motorcycle show today at the MOA booth and they were a genuine pleasure to speak to.

    Welcome - nice to see more Alberta riders! You likely met wit Martin at the MOA Booth - I worked it last weekend with him in Calgary for a day and am sure Martin gave you the tour of what memberships offer beyond this forum. I am sure you will find this a great place for meeting people with similar interests with tons of information to share.

    Likewise..always good to meet new people from Alberta...I've been riding for 30+ yrs, everything from crotch rockets to cruisers( all metric)..finally getting in touch with my German heritage and buying GSA next spring.

    One of those gentlemen you met would be Martin Hobbs. He's a busy man doing all the western shows for the MOA. I had the pleasure of helping him out with the show here in Calgary last weekend as did Ken.

    Good to have new members, and especially those who are not yet owners of BMWs. Hope you soon realise your dream by finding that GS.

    Also, a double welcome to my Edmonton brothers. I'm with Calgary fire with 22 years in.

    I can't wait to retire and have a fixed income. The one I have now is always broke.
