    Welcome! This is a very helpful group.

    Where in NC are you located? There is a NC MOA chartered club with members all over the state, BMW NC Tarheel Travelers. Iím part of a small group of riders in the Triad area, TriadRiders on groups. io. No fees, no officers, just friendly riders, wrench, riding, eating.

    Welcome from the Peach State lawranger! Nice bike. Thanks for posting the pic.

    As you said you are new to riding, what went into your decision making process to pull the trigger on the GS?
    Mama always told me not to look into the eyes of the sun...but Mama, that's where the fun is!

    If you are new to riding a motorcycle I would encourage you to obtain some training. It could save your life!!

    NC is unique in that there is a program called BikeSafeNC that is free and differs from typical (e.g., MSF) training. This training is conducted by various law enforcement motorcycle officers (sheriff, city police, highway patrol) throughout the state. The motor officers will do a lead / follow route and the trainee will receive some feedback from following officers. For the two times I've done this program the rides were excellent; mostly in the country on interesting motorcycle routes that had little other traffic.
