    Hello from California

    New member here, my name is Daniel and currently ride a newly aquired 2009 F800GS. I have been riding for about twenty years on and off. Started out on a Suzuki 500, then on to a GSXR750. The wife made me sell the GSXR after seeing me crash. Some years later she has agreed to welcome the idea again. So this brings me to the F800GS. From the lerking I have done here so far, this seems like a great group of people and I look forward to learning from your experiences and I hope I have the opportunity to bring something to the table as well.

    Thank you,

    Daniel

    I look forward to seeing what you bring to the table.

    Welcome Daniel,

    I started riding as a kid on Dad's new '68 R50/2, and almost 40 years later came back to the boxer. My left shoulder, weakened by a massive bone spur and then a torn rotator cuff (and twice "repaired") makes me head to low COG, low weight, and low handlebar bikes. At 5'11, with 33" sleeve length, I sit straight up on what most people refer to as "crotch rockets".

    I am also very knowledgable on e-farkles, as in the new Garmin Nuvi 660, if you want to ask away.

    Welcome Daniel.

    Now I have bike envy. Great ride you have there.

    Glad to have you here and looking forward to a ride report (with pics of course).

    Hope you can join the party in TN this summer with 9,000 of your closest, newest friends.

    Ride Well.
    I used to post here, but now I don't.
