    New guy

    Howdy, I am new to the club and new to motorcycles. I bought a '79 R65 as my first bike and have been riding it for about four months now. I have always had a thing for airheads since I was a kid. Our neighbor had an R90 s and I have thought airheads were the coolest ever since. I live in Macon Georgia.

    Welcome aboard Rich - you will find this an excellent forum for so many things

    For your bike there is an Airhead specific bike discussion area

    For your area there is a specific regional forum for activities "near" you.

    Maybe you can post a picture of your current bike.

    Anyway check in often.

    I so enjoyed the Georgia Mountain Rally, as a season kickoff event, I was glad to ride down
    from the cold of Maine into some of the nicest hill riding around.

    One of my all-time favorite BMW bikes is the R65. With the short wheelbase and an engine that loves (needs) to be wound up, they can be a total hoot in the twisties. I've kept ahead of many larger and more powerful bikes on an R65 and had a blast doing it. Welcome!

    hi & welcome. - you might like to check out the georgia club.

    we have a meeting coming up on august 30, too.

    i really need to introduce you to fellow R65 owner bill gould. he is a fountain of knowledge on your bike. here is his motorcycle blog on our forum.

    hope you can make it...

    Go soothingly through the grease mud, as there lurks the skid demon.

    Welcome Richard. Sorry I missed your post earlier.

    You are riding a great bike that lots of Beemer folks drool over. I would be interested in hearing how you decided to ride Beemers and in particular how it was your choice for your first one.
    I used to post here, but now I don't.
