I bought my first BMW in 2004 (R1150R Rockster). I have loved the bike--the best bike I've ever owned. At present I can't imagine buying another bike besides a BMW, so I thought I'd finally join the club. I'm also planning to go to the rally for the first time this year, and I'm planning to purchase a GS sometime in the (hopefully not too distant) future. Looking forward to hearing your stories and learning from you all.
