LA Couples Wanted

Wanted: Young-at-heart Los Angeles area couple in their mid 30s to late 40s. The wife and I are in our early 40s, new to BMW-branded motorcycles, normal and down-to-earth, new to the K1600GTL and to the BMW bike community in general. We are looking for another couple close to our age to pal around with on and off the bike. PM if interested.

Sounds like a Craig's List Ad!

Seriously, it's best to research local BMW Clubs in SoCal.

We belong to a local club,150+ members, and have a number of social activities through the year as well as couple activities not typically associated with the club.

Re: LA Couples Wanted

Thanks for the response and I agree, sounds quite a bit like a personal ad...although it kinda-sorta is. We did join a local club and they seem like great folk. We were hoping to add a few new friends to the mix that were closer to our age, hence the ad.

Forums do seem to work as we had a nice dinner last night with a couple that we met recently who belong to the K1600 forum. I reckon digital living has an advantage or two.

We ride at least one weekend a month, sometimes more. Do you head towards LA at all?
