Hi, I just joined MOA this evening. I've been riding motorized two wheelers since the late 50's, everything from Cushmans, Lambrettas, Italian Harleys and Hondas. Yeh, I'm a little over the hill, but graduated to larger motorcycles only five years ago with the purchase of a used 2001 1100RT, and it was love at first ride. After several tours in the Pacific west, I traded it in for a 2009 1200RT demo at Ozzies BMW in Chico in 2010. I have some friends with Beemers and other makes, and we do day rides and a few longer tours each year including a fabulous tour of the Soutwest last year. I'm almost 74 and hope to ride as long as I can.
