I've been a MOA member for several years after joining at the Seattle International M/C show, but I've not spent much time on this forum. I'm registered for my first BMW national event at Redmond, OR this coming July, 2010.
My BMW ride is an '03 F650GSLA (factory lowered) that has been heavily farkled including a Race Tech front suspension, HB crash bars, HID lighting, self-built switched power panel, LED brake light, TKC 80's, DATEL voltmeter, GERBING power outlet, HT Panniers and rear rack, multiple GPS', SPOT V2, and a few other things. Pictures are in the F&G message board section. I love riding this bike on forest service and other non-paved roads. I bought it originally to ride to Alaska, but I ended up taking my Wing first. Someday, it'll make it there on the F650.
My other rides include a GL1800A and an ST1100 and I'm active over on ADVRider and the other bikes' sites.
I've taught lots of M/C classes (both technical and fun), and have written a number of articles on motorcycles and motorcycling for print and online media. I've given a presentation on Dual Sport riding at my local BMW dealer that was very well received. I present a segment on Gadgets on the 3rd Tuesday of each month on an internet radio program found at www.sidestandup.com
As a CPA, I run the Accounting Department for the major private Real Estate franchising firm headquartered in Seattle. Since purchasing and riding my first motorcycle in 2002 ( a Gold Wing), I've logged well over 130k miles and earned my IBA certificate last year).
Usually I'm found on a motorcycle every day. You might say I have the passion.
