New Member From Michigan

Hey folks! New member here from the Detroit, MI area. Been dodging potholes up here since 1996. Just purchased a 2011 R1200RT and about to sell the 2004 K1200GT. Currently have 3 bikes in the stable, '04 K1200GT, '00 Kawasaki ZRX1100, and making room for the '11 R1200RT. I believe the RT will be my last bike purchase. Have been looking for one for a while and when I found this one, I couldn't pass it up.

Welcome from Birch Run MI. You have to watch out for that last bike purchase. A friend of mine, thought his bike would be the last one for him. He had painted on it last one. He went on to last one 4 or 5 .
