    Cool New BMW rider

    Lots of reading here, but I am enjoying it. Ordered a 2018 GTL and will take delivery the end of this April. WOOOHOOO! I grew up on street bikes, yeah, rice burners, and had a lot of fun. I sold all of that fun stuff and got married. Still have that ride, not complaining. After all, she was the one who egged me on to rent a Goldwing in Vegas for a week and we had a blast and she was hooked. Big smile on my face! Her and I are looking to slow our life down and enjoy the scenery and pre-retirement.
    The only things moving in my garage now are the snowmobiles and atv with a plow at the cottage. I embrace the winter months as long as I can. Don't have much of a choice. Located outside of Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

    Cheers

    Welcome

    Hi:

    I am from Newcastle, just down the road from you. Maybe we should get together for a ride to Mudddies Pit BBQ when the snow goes away. After owning a number of Gold Wings I made the switch to something much lighter and now I am not restricted to paved roads. My 2017 R1200GS and I can take off down gravel roads and even head off through the Ganaraska Forest if I like. Great fun!
