    new guy, 1st post

    hello everyone, this is my first post to this site so let me introduce myself. my name is George and i am from Westchester Co. NY. i am an AMA member (#959916) and have just joined the BMWMOA. i ride an '07 F650GS that i purchased in Dec. of this year. i have been riding for well over 25 years but this is my first BMW. i mostly road dirt bikes but over the years I have owned a few street bikes. in the short time i have owned my bike (11 months) i have only managed to put approx 12,000 miles on it, but they sure have been enjoyable miles. i have added a few things to give my bike a bit of a personal touch such as a set of Jessie boxes, a ermax windscreen (which i had to modify for my height) RKA tank bag and an Alaska leathers sheepskin butt pad. i ride all year long, except for when it's snowing, and i am interested in doing some long distance touring on my little 650. although i am hoping to become a valuable asset to this community i will also try to soak up as much knowledge as i can from some of the more experienced BMW owners here. i hope to see some of you guys & gals on road this year.

    ride safe,
    George

    thanks to everyone for the warm welcome. if i can figure out how to post a pic i will but so far i am not having much luck. i guess i will have lots of time to practice this weekend as Max BMW picked up my bike this morning to do some long over due work. i normally like to do all or most of my own work but with the temps in the mid to upper 20's and no heat in my garage i'll let the take care of it.

    And Welcome from Western NY!...Be sure to hit the Finger Lakes BMW club rally held every labor day weekend at Watkins Glen. I'll show you some great roads around here if you'll lead me around Westchester when I visit my sister in Croton-on-Hudson.
