    New member in BC's South Okanagan

    Good afternoon all:

    I'm a new member in the Penticton area, currently working on a 1984 R100RS. I'm a long-time rider, bought the Beemer as a retirement present for myself. I've got some electrical/ignition key work to do, so I'll explain that issue on the airheads chat site. I want to hook up with the Kelowna club, and also with the Edmonton Black Gold folks - the Penticton area is a retirement place for us, but we'll be back and forth between BC and Alberta until we're totally settled.

    Welcome

    Welcome to the Forum at BMWMOA. I used Google Map to find our where you were. Looks like a beautiful part of Canada.

    I've traveled by bike in Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario Quebec, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia. Am looking forward to British Columbia.

    It's supposed to be clear and warm up to 45F tomorrow in my part of Ohio. Planning to ride!

    Thoroughly enjoyed the three airheads I've owned. Hope your project goes well and you're riding soon.

    Hi Dave

    Welcome to BMWMOA and the Forum. You will find lots of info over on the Airheads Forum. I like your choice of bikes also; you probably can figure out why.

    Welcome!

    I'm fairly new here too, and really enjoy the forum. Very informative.

    Not much riding here in Ontario as yet, you will be better off, i suspect.

    Planning a trip to the Island in June to see a friend now living there and will get to see some of the province mainland too. Haven't been out to BC since 1981, and never on a bike.

    Welcome Dave. Good luck with the RS, in my opinion one of the best looking bikes ever made.

    We'll be riding up through your area in May on our way to Hyder, AK. Will probably miss you a bit as we head west on Hwy 3 from Osoyoos so we can ride through Fraser Canyon. Beautiful place you live in.
