This is - by far - the most knowledgeable and helpful group I've seen. Sometimes, it's possible to get sucked in to some pretty heated political/religious threads but, fortunately, thats really not what the group is about.
If you have questions or problems, there is someone in the group who has the answer and is more than willing to share their knowledge and experience.
Your riding season may be short but, I am jealous of your riding area. The scenery is spectacular and there are some great roads.
Welcome - ride safe and enjoy.
