Hi all......Newbe here from southern Vt. .... I've had BMW's (and Hondas) for years ....and have been reading ON for all of those years.....I just bought a 700 GS and decided to join.....I am a great grandmother and a MSF instructor ...... For a living, I build guitar pickups....(For you guitarists....I work with Kent Armstrong....who is a life member).....I ride mostly pavement.....but also a lot of gravel roads....because that's what we have here......I'm not a woods rider, I think I would break....joy
