I've been a BMWMOA member for a little while now.

Received my 'new to me' 2016 S1000XR Premium in Alpine White back in July.
Have put well over a thousand miles on it already. Fanstastic motorcycle.

I re-entered the riding scene in 2011 after a 25 year hiatus. Jumped in on
a 2006 Kawasaki Concours (ZG1000). Rode that all over the Southeast until
selling it this May, to upgrade to the XR.

My introduction to the S1000XR was at a Motorrad Test Ride Event back in 2017.
After riding the GS, the S1000R and the K1600, I got on the XR and was instantly
hooked. All great bikes... this one 'called to me'.

My bike is destined to do quite a bit of touring, motocamping and stress release riding.
