Hello all. I am currently in Iraq finishing up a 9month tour. I can't wait to get back the States. I've never rode a motorcycle before and I'm looking forward to learning. My dad and my uncle are BMW enthusiasts and have put some miles on a bike, especially my uncle. When I get back to the States I will be in the Seattle area stationed at NAS Whidbey Island. I've bought my dads old R75/7 and he's fixing it up for me while I'm over here. Any advice or tips for a new rider and any stories about your own "Airhead" will be greatly appreciated.
