    New Member from Canada/Ontario/GTA

    Hi Everyone:

    I just joined as I've bought myself an early 60th birthday present to myself! A 2013 R1200RT in Fluid Grey, with top box and after market floor boards for the bride! We have rented 1200RT's for an Edelweiss Best of Europe tour (2011) and a self guided tour of British Columbia and Alberta (2012) and plan on taking the new RT to the Gaspe Peninsula in Quebec this summer. We were impressed with the RT and it fit us well. Sold my 2004 Goldwing and am having a ball riding the new RT! Hope to learn much from the Forum on the BMW line and especially the RT!

    Nice to see you here. There is a lot of information to be found and many friends yet unmet.

    Welcome to the Club and the Forum, Don!

    During the Victoria Weekend, May 17-20, take your bride for a ride and visit the Forest City Motorrad Club at our 28th ABC Rally, at the Springwater Conservation, just west of Aylmer.
