    'nuther new guy

    I'm Mike from Northwest WI, 20 miles south of Hayward, 90 miles east of Min/St Paul.
    Got back to bikes 6 yrs ago on a Honda SilverWing Interstate. Incurable new bike bug this year had me resigned to a Goldwing until a friend found a K1100 the end of June. Has been everything I'd hoped. 50# less than the Swing with 55 more HP--and I can push it around the garage.
    Went to MOA Nat'l in West Bend 2 yrs ago so when I finally got a BMW figured I'd better join. Almost went to Tenn this yr but "things" came up. Hope for next yr.
    Involved with K11OG forum also.
    Hope to see some members thru the Anonymous list (both ways) and chapter meetings as well as events.
    Mainly wanted to see if the post would go thru!

    Welcome Mike. Glad to have you here. Your post went thru, so how about another with a pic of your K Bike? Flying Bricks seem to run forever and I know you will have a great time on yours.

    Go to the Flying Brick section for any questions and advice you may have. Good folks there who are passionate about K bikes.

    Enjoying the cool summer up North?
    Ride Well

    Thanks guys,
    Love the cool weather this year. Could wear a sweat shirt all summer and not complain. Just had 3 days of 90*+ 70 dew pt--dripped sweat all over. DO NOT need that.
    I may put this in Avatar:

    Hi Mike!

    Another BMW rider in Wisconsin? Who knew?
    It looks like we will sew up the mileage contest again this year.

    19 BMWMOA Nationals under my belt, and I have no idea what I am doing.
