Thread: Hello from Wisconsin!

  1. #1

    Hello from Wisconsin!

    Hello! My name is Doug and I'm new to the BMW owner's world. I currently bought a 2006 R1200RT from my Father who rode it for years, but can't ride anymore due to health. I've been motorcycling for 31 years on other various models including a 68 Triumph Bonneville, BSA and Honda, etc. but the BMW is by far the best and I'm really enjoying it! It's a very nice handling machine, and comfortable.
    We live in Sheboygan, which is north of Milwaukee right on Lake Michigan. Again, HELLO!

    Another welcome from the edge of the great Idaho high desert! Sound like you have a very nice bike, and I'm sure it is going to give you many miles of joy.
