Hi gang, I just last week traded in my faithful Harley Ultra Classic for a new '14 R1200 RT. I must say it was a very good move. Residing within an easy day trip of some of the best motorcycle roads in the country, I just didn't know how much fun it could be on a sportier bike.
I am a member of Asheville BMW Riders (at least I've turned in the paperwork, and they don't know me well enough to kick me out yet) BMWMOA #353. I haven't had a chance to scope out any of the other clubs in the area but I'm closer to Charlotte than Asheville.
I've been riding on and off for almost 40 years, and real regularly for the past 12. I look forward to meeting many of you on the road, as I've been known to take off for a couple weeks at a time and just ride somewhere I've never been, sometimes covering over 10K miles in two weeks.
Here's a picture from my first day trip on the new Beemer.
