    Hello all. I am new to motorcycling in general. I bought a non-running '87 K100RS last March with the intent of getting it running and making a few dollars. I got it going with much help from the great info on the forums here. I was also very impressed with how this bike was built.
    It only took a couple trips around the block to get hooked, and with the full support of my wife I purchased a helmet, gloves, boots, etc. I got my temps and by the end of July I finished the MC safety course and got my endorsement. By the end of December I managed to put just under 8000 miles on the bike.
    I appreciate the wealth of information that is available here and hope I am able to contribute.

    greetings from the west side of Cleveland - I've ridden for years, but just got my first beemer last summer - built a R1100RSL out of 2+ bikes might still make back my money selling parts, but haven't gotten there yet. hope you are enjoying the weather.

    I can think of few better ways to start enjoying the friendship of the BMW crowd than attending the MOA Rally in Bloomberg, PA this July. Even if you only have a day or two, it's about 350 miles each way, camping is included in the fee, and you'll love the seminars, tire kicking, and maybe the beer tent.

    Be sure to stop at the Rally newbies booth manned by MOA Ambassadors. We'll try to help get your rally experience kicked off in the right direction. The Rally is a very large event. You cannot hope to do everything. If you come, start by asking some advice and making a sort of plan from the events in the program.
