    New Member from Florida

    Hi All,
    I am Mike from Wellington, Florida.

    Originally from Sheffield UK.
    Then Dad moved us all to South Africa around 1958

    Was an avid BMW rider in my younger years in South Africa
    Introduced to the brand with a R69S around 1970. Absolutely loved it.
    Then also had a single cylinder BMW and eventually a R1100RT

    On moving to the States I did not have a bike for around 18 years.
    So obtained Motorcycle Endorsement and then purchased a 1996 R850R to see if interest was still there. It most definitely was!

    Just traded the R850R in on a new C650GT Scooter.
    Its more like the R69S and exactly what I need.
    I occasionally get swelling of feet and being footloose (no pedal work) makes riding more enjoyable.

    Thanks,
    Mike.

    Welcome Mike, post some photos when you can, love to see your ride.
    So often times it happens that we live our lives in chains
    And we never even know we have the key

    Welcome Mike! You should have some nice year-round riding weather to help you get back in to it!
