    New guy in Tennessee

    Hello,
    I've recently rejoined MOA and rejoined the ranks of BMW owners, too. I bought a silver 2003 K1200LT-C, my first K-bike. I've owned several R bikes in the past - 1976 R90/6, 1952 R25, 1992 R100R, 1996 R1100RT, 2002 R1150RT. I also own a 2000 Excelsior-Henderson.

    I live in Tullahoma, TN, which is about 70-75 miles from Nashville, Chattanooga, and Huntsville, AL.

    It is definitely a good place to live if you ride motorcycles!

    Cool Hey Tullahoma!

    Hello to a fellow Tennessean & BMW fan! It's been a while since I was in your neck of the woods, but love Monteagle Mountain in the winter :bang head Let me know if you make it to East Tennessee and we'll try to meet up!

    Hello from south of you in Georgia. Welcome here and if you don't have anything planned for May 4-6, come on down to the Georgia Mountain Rally.

    Moved to Murfreesboro about 5 years ago from Coffee county. Just started riding in October. Making a ride down the Natchez Trace at the end of April. Looking for riders interested in this lazy ride down to Natchez.

    Thanks for the offer, but I'm getting into my busy travel time of year for my job, so probably not available. I rode the Trace several years ago. Watch your speed. There are supposedly lots of police in unmarked cars patrolling it. They never got me, but I've heard stories...

    LOL, about to be stored here. I broke down and rented a garage. Knew I wouldn't be able to last til the house was finished before I brought down the bike from Knoxville.

    I have the Ilium Works driver "Sport Boards" on mine. I like them but they put my right foot too far below the brake pedal and my left too far outward from the gearshift. Now I need to get the lowered brake pedal and the gearshift extender.
