New owner of '06 RT
I'm a first-time BMW owner after having a good number of bikes: Japanese, Euro, and HD. I've been riding for about 45 of my 55 years starting on mini-bikes and dirt bikes, and have been on street bikes for more than 35 years.
My current bikes are an '05 Ducati ST3, and for the past month a nicely equipped '06 RT. While the Ducati is capable of eating up highway miles, I have quickly embraced this RT and what it offers as a long-distance tourer.
I live in North Carolina with quick access to the Blue Ridge Parkway, a number of motorcycle-only campgrounds, and many two-lane country highways. The climate is such that I can, with heated gear, ride year-round and am on two wheels whenever possible.
I'm certain I will find value in this forum, and may be able to contribute after a while.
