    New member in Louisiana

    I'm in Mandeville, north of New Orleans. I joined a few years ago, even before I had my first bike, and learned a great deal about safe riding. I have since taken the MSF and logged many, many miles on 6 different bikes. The current steed is a K1300S that I am taking to AZ in February.

    Just saying hello,

    Gravity (aka Tom)

    Gravity is such a great name. Surprised it wasn't already taken.

    Welcome to the family. Looking forward to seeing a picture of your bike. Hope the weather has not been too cold for riding down there.

    PS Your name reminds me of the "Two Rules":

    1. Water is harder than rock.

    2. Gravity always wins.

    Post again real soon.
    I used to post here, but now I don't.

    Welcome to the site Tom.
    I emailed you a few years back when I went to Mandeville to work for a month on hurricane cleanup.
    I see you're back on a K bike. I think in 07 you were on a K1200RS, then maybe bought a GS???.
    Hope things are going well for you.

    Yes, I have had a few bikes since then. The k1200R Sport I sold to my little brother in Vegas. I was bike-less for a few months then a k1300S fell into my lap. I'm driving that with a big grin now.

    Heading for AZ in a few weeks for some training. Touring on the Ks and hoping my butt holds out. Here's a pic of the Natchez Trace ride I took last summer. It's the very long but scenic way to get to Nashville from here.

    I did own an anniversary edition 2006 1150R GSA for a bit. The divorce rectified that situation and the bike is in someone else's garage now. I sure miss that bike!

    Best,

    Gravity

    Lucky dog, too much snow and cold to get out on the bikes here.
    The orange S looks good.
    What part of Az are you headed for?
