    Officially new to MOA - guest member for years

    Hello to MOAs -

    Bought my first BMW in 2007 and recently got my 2nd from the local Las Vegas shop. Lived and ridden around the west coast, including California, Nevada, Washington, Oregon and Idaho.

    I've been a stealth member of the MOA stealing technical advise from this forum as a guest and figured it was time to get involved. Got to say I've always been impressed by the great members and civility on the forum. Plus there's some super helpful advise on here (I need more of that all the time).

    So - any other desert rats on this forum???

    Welcome to the forum...officially.

    Post a pic of the bike when you get a chance.

    I am not a desert rat but I will be in your neck of the woods in late November. I will be renting an RT for a ride out to DV if you are interested in meeting up. Send me a PM if you are interested, likely the 26th or 27th would be the date.

    A go fast bike. A go far bike.

    My rides.

    - Scot, if I'm still in Vegas when November rolls around - I'd be happy to run out to DV. Perfect time of year to do it, I bet. We can chat about the islands since half my family lives in Kahului!

    Welcome.

    Thanks for the pics of your bike.

    Looks like a speeding ticket in waiting! Of course your right wrist may not turn as fast as mine.

    Hope to read more of your posts.
    I used to post here, but now I don't.

    I am a desert rat! My bike is fast, too, but not as fast as yours, just lighter.

    Well I have always lived near the coast since I've been riding - so a lot of tips on this forum came in handy when I moved. I can ride relatively comfortably at 105 degrees now with the proper equipment.

    Funny, I stop at 105. I have ridden in hotter, and gotten ill from it. Now I don't.
