    Kinda new member

    I joined MOA several years ago when I had my 2002 R1150RT. The bike had 82,000 miles on it and I made several trips to Texas (Hill Country) to ride with friends. A diagnosis of MS put an end to my riding and I sold my beloved RT, but hard work and good doctors have brought me back to where I can ride again. I recently purchased a 2007 R1200Rt and have thoroughly enjoyed every second on this bike. Quite a difference from my 1150.

    I am retired and live on the Seacoast of NH. My plan is to ride as much as I can, whenever I can and hopefully I can head back to Texas again next Spring or Fall.

    Glad to be back here.

    Welcome back to the forum! Nice to hear you can still swing a leg over!! So, GoldDog...does that reflect an affection for a certain kind of dog??

    Thanks. It has been a long road but my motivations came in two forms. 1) Wanting to get back in the saddle and 2) These guys.

    Thanks Gary. Forgot to add a picture of the RT. I have since removed the back rest.

    Welcome back.
    The Hill Country is one of our favorite places to ride, especially in April when the wildflowers bloom.

    I always went in the Spring, usually late April, early May. Plenty cold leaving NH but nice and warm in Texas. The Bluebonnets are amazing, especially after a wet Winter.

    I bet it's cold
    It's cold enough leaving Iowa mid April but we usually only have one cold day before we get south enough to warm up.
    Bluebonnets were great this spring.

    Man, I miss that. One of my friends that lives outside of Houston said that it was a nice day to ride. Here it was 30 so a tad cold.
