I am a new rider period. 2006 F650GS is my first motorcycle; recently purchased on 02/18/2012 from a individual right here in this area. Still learning the basics. The Motorcycle Safety Course, taken in late July 2011 was the most time on a bike for me.
The course was taken just in case it would be needed as one of my brothers had just purchased HD and when he learned that I was moving here, he said "that's a ride."
Several of my brothers and a nephew are riding their motorcycles for a visit and some Big Bend TX area riding. This prompted renewed seeking for a BMW F650GS and the purchase.
I have put approximately 257 miles on it - much to learn and enjoy!
It is clear that this club will be a good part of the learning and enjoying!
