    New member from Ohio

    Greetings all! My name is Brent Yarnell and i bought a K1600GT about 2 weeks ago. I came off a V-Strom 100 which I loved. I have been into motorcycles since I was about 8 years old when my dad bought me an old Honda SL70 and never looked back. I'm 23 now and have ridden over 100,000 miles. My first road bike was a KLR650, then my V-Strom, and now the amazing K1600. I look forward to another 100k on this bike!

    Hi Brent, welcome to the forum. Oh yeah an SL 70, great bike- bullet proof. IMO there is a big advantage to starting riding at a young age. Look around and if you have any questions just ask. Gary

    Brent,
    Below is a open invitation to a fall event sponsored by RA.
    Thought you might be interested.

    "Wow! Hard to believe Halloween is just around the corner. Hope to see lots of you next weekend at the last Ohio RA camp out of the season near Cadiz. I am bringing some firewood and a saw. If any of you are coming in four wheeled vehicles and can bring some wood, please do so. The RA will provide soup for Friday and I'll come up with something for Saturday's breakfast. Saturday evening dinner is pot luck so please bring a dish or dessert to share. I'll bet Tappan Lake is gorgeous about now! See you next weekend!!

    Brent:

    We have a lot of club members who bought their bike and/or get service at Gene's shop in New Philly.
    We - the BMW Motorcycle Club of Akron - meet every Sunday morning, year 'round, for breakfast at the Farmer Boy restaurant just south of Rt91 and Rt224 in Springfield township (maybe too long of a haul for you)

    Dealer of choice

    Hello Brent,
    I live in Fl and my dealer of choice is in your town.
    In Jan. of 2008 I reminded Gene that my bike was in for service a few months before and asked about a trade for a new low F800ST. The deal was made and I said I'll go back to Fl and haul my trade back in the truck.
    I drove streight through, got a cheap room and was at the front door first thing the next day. They loaded her up and off I went back to florida.
    Because I had food with me I got all the way back to charlotte before I bought anything but coffee. Quite a trip and quite a motorcycle.
