R1200 CL Rider in search of VA routes
Hi there fellow riders! My name is Stephanie and I've owned my 2004 R1200CL for two years (bought it brand new from Mortons BMW in Fredericksburg - great folks!) I understand that there are very few CL's out there (didn't know that when I bought it) and that it is somewhat of an eclectic bike. I've heard some tell me "it's underpowered" or that it's center of gravity is too high...after my Honda Shadow 750, I can say it was definitely different, but I've grown to love my ride and wouldn't trade it for the world. It makes for a good conversation peice and has forged some wonderful friendships along our travels.
I ride to work (104 miles roundtrip) most days until the temp sinks below about 38 degrees. I enjoy riding and am out on the Virginia roads along side my husband on most weekends (some weekends we have to make the tough choice of either fishing or riding...fishing or riding...most likely the bikes win because the boat takes longer to prep!!)
We are always looking for new routes and points of interest, so if you have any "faves" please send them my way. A day trip or even an over-nighter would be much appreciated.
We are currently planning a trip for the Outer Banks and then will move north along the eastern shore up through Ocean City MD and back over to King George, VA. Do you have any interesting routes to Nags Head? Are there any points of interest we should see?
I'm an artist - not a techie, so I hope I can master the discussion boards! Looking forward to "meeting" everyone in the forum and hopefully gain some new riding buddies!
