PJ - New rider and member from Canton, Michigan
Just wanted to introduce myself. Just bought myself a R1200RT last year from the Canton dealership. My fourth bike, but my first BMW. Loving it, but not getting enough opportunities to ride, hopefully that will change in the upcoming days.
Looking forward to meeting and riding with some of you.
Welcome to the BMW MOA from West Bloomfield, MI
Greetings and welcome to the club. My name is Kent and I live in West Bloomfield, not that far from Canton. I purchased a BMW K1300S about three years ago from the Canton-based BMW dealer and have been very happy with it. Just as I recalled from my experiences from over 30 years ago, I find that some of the friendliest people ride motorcycles but those with the best taste ride BMWs (just having some fun there folks as my first bike was a Kawasaki followed by a Honda). The BMW Touring Club of Detroit was mentioned as one possible place to meet like-minded motorcyclists and I would also encourage you to look at the MSTA (Motorcycle Sport Touring Association) which is open to riders of all types of motorcycles (though >50% are Beemers). The local squadron meets on the fourth Saturday of each month at 8:30 AM at Karl's Cabin on Gottredson just north of M-14 -- and it's a fun bunch as well. If you want to learn more, just ping me, and in the meantime enjoy your new RT!
