    Hi, I'm Eric and I live in Austin, Tx, 44 and single.
    My father also got me hooked on BMWs. He was the east USA
    sales rep for butler and smith while they were
    the BMW importer in the late 50's early '60s.
    He also took me to my first daytona in 1974
    where I saw Ago win on the TZ 700 and Reg Pridmore
    on a BMW 750 (talk about a mismatch)

    With the exception of a few lean years in the early '80s
    I've only owned BMW bikes ever since; starting with a R75/5,
    then an r65LS that I bought while I was in the army
    and kept for 12 years .

    In '97 I found the dark side when I bought a
    FYKRS. I had trouble staying upright on it (no fault of the bike)
    though so I decided to get something more expensive,
    faster, and heavy than the FYK leading to my main
    ride below I also have acquired yet another K10rs
    that I'm doing some slight tweaking on........

    I've made alot of friends through the IBMWR list
    and the rallies I've made it to. I hope to
    meet some more at the WV rally next month.
