    Hello from Texas

    I picked up my new 2010 F800GS today from BMW of Fort Worth, TX. The dealership was excellent. I to wait for a bike to come in from Germany, but it was worth it. As soon as the bike was ready, it starting raining. Oh well, it had to get dirty sooner or later.

    Big Bend is on my list of places to visit. We take a bunch of trips to Arkansas and maybe Colorado next summer.

    Thanks for all the nice comments. It's still rainy this week, but it gave me time to install my GPS and engine guards.

    Hola, Ruben,
    Me gusta andar la moto en su pais. Vivia y trabajaba en Aguascalientes hace mucho tiempo. Nunca visite el estado de Oaxaca, pero tenia que gastar tiempo en Tehuacan, Pue. En este momento, estoy jubilado. Tengo amigos en Coyoacan. Quiero visatarles en la moto. Antes de viajar, le avisare. Tambien, necesito saber las fechas del Reunion de Moto Clubs BMW de Mexico. Depende en las fechas, quiero atender La Reunion.
    Saludos,

    Hi, Ruben,
    I enjoy riding my bike in your country. I lived and worked in Aguascalientes a while ago. I never visited the state of Oaxaca, but I did have to spend some time in Tehuacan, Puebla. I am presently retired. I have friends in Coyoacan. I'd like to visit them on my bike. Before I go, I'll let you know. Also, I need the dates of the BMW Clubs Rally. Depending on the dates, I'd like to attend the Rally.
    Ride Safe,
