    New member from the Atlanta metro area

    Hello all - I just started riding again after 15 years and bought a used BMW as my re-entry into the world of motorcycling. I bought a blue 2003 K1200GT and really love the bike!

    I live in Canton, GA (not too far from the North GA mountains).

    Welcome Cantonian!

    Welcome Cantonian!
    Your not too far from the rally this weekend....you should head on up even if it's just a day trip. That GT makes riding 6/700 mile days a piece of cake.

    Also, check out the local Georgia club... www.bmwmoga.org

    There's a monthly outing somewhere around the state, a monthly rte in marietta somewhere, and a heck of a lot more going on.....

    peace,

    We don't care what you ride.

    You would be surprised at how many BMW owners also own HD's.
