About Me and Motorcycles...

gone but not forgottenI used to ride the K1100RS pictured to the right.  Unfortunately in July of 1999 I totaled this beautiful machine. Fortunately after looking at over 50 bikes over four+ years I have purchased a meticulously maintained 1994 K75RT in impeccable condition from a good friend - hopefully it's a long and happy relationship (and the breath of some new life in the Trip Reports section!)

I am a member of and active in several BMW Motorcycle organizations, including the local BMW organization - the BMWBMW, two National organizations - the BMWMOA & The BMW RA, the Internet BMW Riders - the IBMWR, and the Internet Rec.Moto group - the DoD. I served on the MOA's board of directors, and am currently the webmaster emeritus and an MOA Ambassador. I am a past board member, webmaster, and newsletter editor of BMWBMW.

Take a look at the left nav of this page for more in-depth information on some BMW Motorcycle topics.
