New member here from Ashburn, VA. Been riding for over 35 years but this is my first beemer. In September 2011 I rode the 800 GS on an Edelweiss tour of Southern Spain and Portugal....was the vacation of a lifetime. I felt like a little kid again riding the twisties on this awesome piece of German engineering. Needless to say, the weekend before Thanksgiving I was leaving the dealer on a brand new K1600 GTL Just love this bike and cannot get my duff off the saddle. My other bikes, well....their collecting dust in the garage and will probably be up for sale in the spring.
In any event, I am looking forward to joining and meeting you all on these weekend getaway rides, and perhaps even venture to ride to Salem for the rally if I can find a few to join.
