    Hello to all new member here just bought my first BMW earlier this year after 25 years of riding. I did a 1000 mile ride up around the top of Lake Michigan and now Iím hooked and just upgraded to my second BMW 🤣

    Obviously you do some serious riding. What model did you have and what did you recently buy?
    1972 R75/5

    Thanks for the welcome

    My first BMW was a 2003 R1150RS that I took the Lake Michigan ride on and it was great but unfortunately one of the guys that came on the ride had a 2020 R1250R. So when I saw all the upgrades and technology I knew I was going to upgrade 🤣
