    New Member from Nebraska

    Hello to all. I just purchased my first BMW - K1200LT - and am looking forward to some riding if the snow ever melts. I've come over from a Gold Wing and have had several other machines (Valkyrie, Bonnevilles, Yamaha DT). Looking forward to participating.

    Hey, rglake

    Welcome to the BMW MOA and the forum. I am down the interstate in Lincoln. For local ride partners, there is a BMW club in Omaha called the Flatlanders. Find out about them at www.flatlandersbmwclub.com.

    Hope to meet you down the road.

    Hey Bob, glad to have you here. You picked a fine bike for your first Beemer.

    How about posting a pic?

    Second the idea of checking out the Chartered Club.

    Give us a shout if there is anything we can do for you.

    I used to post here, but now I don't.

    Welcome aboard Bob!

    It's great to have another BMW rider in NE. I live in Lincoln also, and have an '01 R1150GS that's set up for LD riding and a '03 F650 Dakar for general all surface work. When it warms up there is a European Bike night in the Lincoln Haymarket, the first Wednesday of the month. A lot of the Flatlanders ride down. It's a good reason to get some mid-week riding in.

    Welcome Bob. It will be interesting to hear from you as you adjust to the BMW vs the Wing. Get some heated clothing and head out on the road. Don't let that cold weather keep you inside. Have fun and ride safe.

    I dunno, man. That adjustment might be tough. Seems to me this bunch only stops at every fifth Dairy Queen ... [Gotta get all the way to Montreal for lunch, y'know. ]
