    New member in Oregon

    Hello folks,

    I am a relatively new rider here in Oregon. I took the Team Oregon class (Oregon's version of the MSF class Sept 08 and got a bike in July of this year (not a BMW yet). My interests are in touring and camping and I'm going to try and get to the Rally in bend next summer.

    I'm looking at a couple of used BMW airheads or oilheads. I'll like the looks of the later model year R1150RTs.

    I'll be in some of the technical forums to try and get additional information.

    Take care and see you on the roads.

    Ed

    Hey, good to have you! Oregon is a great state for riding regardless of your mount! The RT is a nice choice though for your next bike; it's a long legged tourer easily capable of two up comfort, moreover it's a blast in the twisties when called upon. You cannot go wrong with that selection. But, BMW offers many choices these days and I'm sure you'll find one just "right" for you.
