    Hi,
    After a ~25 year hiatus, I found myself in the position to get back on a motorcycle last year.
    Mainly for commuting and riding to/from and around the cottage.
    Since I always had dual sport bikes, I just couldn't see myself on anything else.
    So last winter I bought a slightly used 2012 BMW G650GS.
    I truly enjoyed riding again this past season.
    The plan for next year is to replace the stock 90/10 tires with something more off road oriented and join OFTR/ODSC.
    Looking forward to meeting the people around here.
    Cheers.

    Wilf

    Welcome
    Keep an eye on the casual rides thread. The Bethany ride is the first organized club ride each year. Keep an eye on that thread too.

    Get your warm gear on...the Bethany ride is the first one and it's right around the corner from you. You'll find a large number of us out for that and you'll find people that you can be comfortable riding with.

    Cheers,

    Bruce
