    Hello from central NC. Just bought my first BMW, a 73 R75/5 project bike. Well, mostly a /5, but with a /6 front end, a 100RS seat that doesn't fit right, and some aftermarket bits and pieces. Should be fun. I'm sure I'll have lots of questions as I get her back on the road, and look forward to meeting other airheads along the way.

    Welcome!

    Now you live in some good riding country! I was over your way in the trip to Johnson City in '09. If you ever come to the coast let us know.
    My second BMW was a 1973 R75/5. I drove it for many reliable and smooth miles. I took it to Guatemala one summer.
    Lots of knowledge here and don't be afraid to go to the airhead site to ask questions.

    Welcome.
    There seems to be a fair size group in Central NC, myself included, but I haven't met up with any other yet. Others will chime in with various plans and routine meet ups.

    Thanks all. I happened across a BMW meetup over in Pittsboro NC earlier this year so I know of at least one. That will have to wait until I get this one running and the weather warms up again, bit of a ride from here to Pittsboro.

    I guess I can lead the chime in..

    Welcome to BMWMOA, and the "joys" of getting a airhead running again

    Lots of BMW clubs in NC, from Wilmington to Asheville to Charlotte to the Triad to the Triangle, and a few others in between. Check them out in the clubs listing on this site.The closest club for you would probably either be the Tarheel Travelers or Carolina BMW Motorcycle Owners Association,

    If you want a place to meet BMW folks, you should come to the Sunday Bikers Breakfast,aka "Rev.Willie's Feast of the Immaculate Consumption" held every Sunday (9-12),at Carolina Brewery and Grill, on the edge of Pittsboro, NC, at the intersection of US 15-501 and US 64 Bypass. Lots of folks on all types of bikes,but it is sponsored by a MOA club from NC, The Gonzo Touring Team. I am at Breakfast most every Sunday, so come on over and meet the Family.
    Onward, through the fog!

    This time of year, 10:30 is still in prime time. Not as many riders are there at 0900.
