    Greetings from Lehigh Valley PA - New Member

    Been riding Beemers for 3 years now, finally joined BMWMOA. Looking to connect with some riders locally and longer distance.

    Put 28000 miles on my '12 K1600GTL so far, and just got a '13 GSA.

    Anyone know any good dirt around me?

    Looking forward to connecting.

    Welcome Aboard!

    Vince,

    Welcome to the forum and the club! I love my K16GTL and would love to add a R12GS back to the stable (sold my '05 when I bought my K16).

    Enjoy both bikes!

    If you ever find yourself in eastern Oklahoma give me a shout.

    Thanks for being a member!

    HI Vince, welcome to the forum. There seems to be a bunch of us from Pa. around here. I'm a half hour north of you in Brodheadsville, my brother and I both have 2013 GSA's. Not to much for dirt around here, a little. I'm always looking for people to ride with and can show you what's around up here.

    Vince,

    You may want to get on the BMW MOA Facebook page and give a shout to Gary Weaver. He lives in Williamsport and knows all of the good dirt in Central PA. I'm in Carlisle but I'm strictly a pavement guy. I'd be happy to link up if you want to do that. I've only been riding about 6 1/2 years but put in 18-20K a year so I know every good stretch in Central PA and quite a bit of Maryland, Virginia, and West Virginia.
