NOVICE TO BMW

Well hello from central Wi,I'll give you a run down on Myself,Long time viewer of Beemer's,First time Buyer
I have had bikes all my life,(Let's just say I'm middle Aged) as of now I (3)HD Baggers and just added a (14) GTLE a few weeks back with some of those Farkles added already 9000 miles on it,It has a J&M c/b intercom witch I know nothing about,it also came with a low/high seats,top case rack,floor boards,And it have a Nav. System,Oh and some Angel GT Tires 3000 miles on those,This is quite the Machine.

I am a member of another BMW forum as of late also, I have a lot to learn about the Beemer Family,and looking forward to learn about the bike and the People that have them.

Abit about myself,I work for a manufacturing company that has their own Fleet of Trucks that Transports products to and from customers,And I Manage the Truck Shop,So with that said,I do spend a lot of time at work and on call when I'm not there,On a better note I am planning on a Ironbutt ride this next Spring,So why not have another Great Bike to Try it on.

OH I do like asking questions about all the stuff like EARL (oil) and tires,and seats and susp. And all the other do it yourself stuff,So be Warned.............. just having Fun with you guys, Don't Be So Serious Thanks Mike B

Re: NOVICE TO BMW

Welcome Mike from Sugar Hill, GA.

Before you actually start an Earl thread, I suggest you do some searching first and read through some of the stellar ones on this forum that have already met the " beating a dead horse" category. If you don't find what you need, feel free to go to the dark side and start another.

Welcome to the forum! If you haven't already, you might try this forum's sister site, the K1600.com forum. Many of the people on that forum are also active or former members of this forum that have migrated since moving from the K1200LT/R1200RTs to the K1600 GT/GTL/GTLEs.

BMW does make great motorcycles. I have owned many other brands and like them. However, I've found that BMW's focus of safety features is outstanding.

I ride a BMW F800GT myself and love it !!! I am here myself to find out about other BMW products, specifically the R1200RT.
