    New Member from SoCal

    Greetings all from sunny Temecula, CA. Finally got around to joining. Been a BMW fan (cars) since the early 90's and got my first '09 GS 1200 in the spring of 2017. Put about 15K miles on that in both VA and CA by the fall of 2019. Then I changed to a '19 GS 1250. Still have not put many miles on this one due to work and the pandemic. I work on ships as an engineer, so riding time has been very limited. Looking to get out on some day rides and some into to dirt on a big bike. Also on Adventure Rider as "Recycled Dirt Rider".
    regards
    Bob

    Welcome Bob! Here's hoping you soon will get to put a lot more miles on the 1250. How about a picture or two to feed our curiosity?

    Welcome, Bob!

    Looks like we joined about the same time! I don't get out much but if our schedules ever align would enjoy crossing paths! Lately I've been building my confidence out on South Main Divide west of you near La Cresta. Happy to meet up at the Lookout on Ortega some Sunday morning!
