    Welcome to the family.

    I would suggesting posting in the regional forum which can be found HERE

    Something like "Looking for riding partners" might get some responses of people who live in your neck of the woods.

    Look forward to reading some ride reports (with pics) of TN

    There is a large number of BMW Riders in Memphis and a local club, RAMs is the name. They put on a nice Rally at Pickwick lake every year.

    I am in the Memphis TN area so if you are from the area do let me know. Would like to get hooked up with the local BMW crowd.

    Good to have you! Wow, a real low mileage BMW, kind of rare actually. An R1100S is a sportbike without the hard edges and much easier to use and live with on a day to day basis.

    Thanks for the advice.

    I did have someone pm me when I posted on the local forum for my region soliciting info. for local riders. It was someone from the RAMs club as you had noted. They have invited me to one of their meets, so we shall see.

    and yes, GregFeeler, it is a very pretty bike and I feel lucky to have bought it.



    Be safe and enjoy the ride
