    Lost Texan in MN

    MINNESOTA: Well, I went and did it. I bought a motorcyle. Wanted a BMW since I was stationed in Germany in '79. All you pros may think me crazy but I went in all the way and got a 2008 K1200GT. I have an old friend that has 130,000 milies on his BMW. He coached me and I'll take the course and start off slow. Will need your help too as I start this journey.

    Thanks! Bought it over Thanksgiving. My brother and brother-in-law have motorcyles. My grandfather had one and so did my Dad. Those old birds were justing having too much fun. Now all I have to do is wait for April to get here, the snow to melt and take the riding course. I took my 21 year old son to see it yesterday at the dealership. Sort of a Christmas present to myself. Told him that buying a new mortorcycle in the winter and then putting it into storage is sort of like going to a house of ill repute and only getting to sit in the parlor and listen to the piano player. I'm trying to talk him into taking the course with me and learning as well.

    So you're currently living in Plymouth? Ever been to one of the BMWMOCM meetings?
    It's a great group--even if I am a bit biased!
    Congrats on your new ride.

    Yep I'm in Plymouth. I went to your MN Chapter site and can understand why you'd be biased. Congrats!
    I haven't been to the MN chapter meeting yet. I have the paperwork to join on my desk now and it'll be in the mail tomorrow.
