    Boston & NH

    Just joined BMWMOA because I bought a 1975 R90/6 for nostalgic reasons.


    Also have a Honda CRF100F the kids ride, a Yamaha Trailway 200 (AKA "The fat tire flier"), a Yamaha WR250R to chase the kids around, and a Triumph Tiger 1050 ABS. The only BMW owned previously was a 1983 R65. Also owned a 1979 Suzuki GS750 (first bike), KLR650, two Suzuki V-Stroms, and an SV650SF for track days.

    We live in Boston [Dorchester, near Boston Harbor] but have a place on the W slope of Mount Sunapee NH with great riding all around that area, and have half a mile of trails carved out of the woods.

    Been a member of Yankee Beemers for five years or so, but didn't get to go to many events. Taking 6-8 months off work so this season should be different.

    My wife got her MC license last year. We have three kids, 17, 15, 13.

    Hi deseero - Good to hear from someone else in the neighborhood. I'm over in the Brookline part of Chestnut Hill, and ride my R1200RT out and around. I'm retired so when the weather's warm, I try to take some longer trips. This past Fall I went out to Oregon, down to California and home. My tolerant wife asked me to make that the last trip to the West coast.

    Anyway, the next YBer breakfast meeting will be on February 21, and as usual, out in Mendon, MA at the Willowbrook. I'll be driving out and if you'd like to ride along, we can get together. Also, MAX BMW is having a big event on 2/11 at the store in North Hampton, NH. The YB will have a booth (more like a table I'd say) and some of us will be up there most of the day. I'd offer to have you join us, but I'll be there from 8AM to 4PM, so you might be better off on your own.

    There's a YB event a week from today on 11/4. It's the annual holiday party, and you might look on the YB website for details.

    Looks like you've got quite a stable of bikes. I'd think it would be hard to find a lot of space in Dorchester for all of them, so some must be up north in NH.

    Welcome to the Forums, and I'll look forward to meeting you at some YB event...

    Feb 21 is school vacation week so we'll be away.

    We usually leave the CRF100F and TW200 in NH. I keep the WR250R in the garage in Boston year-round so I can take a spin when there is a weather window. The R90 is in the garage in NH at the moment, have to get up there to remove the instrument cluster for service.

    Registered there since 2013 as Garandman. The Facebook page seems more active. Is YankeeBeemers.org hijacked or something? It redirects to KenSpring.

    It's a long story, but you can find the YB Forums here: http://www.kenspring.com/ybforum/forum.php

    Not hijacked. Ken Springhetti is the YB President now.

    Hi there, it's running off Ken's server as John mentioned. I noticed you posted the other night, was wondering where you had been.......hadn't heard that "bring" in a while
    FB has a number of things fouled up.....there has been discussions both here and on the YB forum. I have my view on it but it's been posted.
    Good to see you on- in both places.

    BTW, been spending some time in NH on the ATV

    Welcome to the forum. That R90 looks sweet, how many miles are on it? It looks pretty well kept.
