Hello all... I am new to BMW's, now have an 05 R1200RT. The only other boxer engine I had was an 05 Ural with a sidecar, but lost it in the great flood from Ike. Also lost an 04 Harley Heritage, and an 06 Sportster, and a 69 BSA Victor 441. Quite a change from a Harley, but I am enjoying every minute of it. I am in the area just north of Seabrook and the Kemah Boardwalk, just off 146 in Shoreacres. Any body else out ther from around here??? I am enjoying the forum and everyone's opinions about everything. BTW, what does the collective think about the Olympia AST Jacket???
