I absolutely love riding my R1100RT.

I drive for a living, I skate for exercise, and I ride the shit out of this wonderful motorcycle for pleasure. There is NOTHING like a 5K mi. vacation on this worthy steed.

I do love driving my 328is every day. But riding over Beartooth Pass in July is something to experience.

Anybody else here ride a Beemer?

Cheers

Reed

Why not put on your salesman's hat and splain to them that:
#1- you will complete a motorcycle safety course
#2 - you will always wear full protective gear
#3 -solemly swear that you will NOT be one of those wheelie squids

You may have already tried this, I don't know...

I have been riding for a long time and I can tell you that I don't ride in hi density areas. Riding in town is definately high risk. Instead I head for the less populated part of the state to get me jollies.

Being in traffic scares the hell out of me even when I'm driving the 100,000 lb Kenworth. I've seen so many rearenders that the thought of getting tapped from the rear on the scoot is not at all hard to imagine. Ugh.

The kind of riding I do is called sport touring. Go far, go fast, stay gone as long as possible.

Regards

Reed

Might want to take up dirt riding. They could go for that and it is farkin cool.

I met some guys with adventure bikes at a gas stop near Lolo Pass in Montana who had been in the backcountry for a week and hadn't been on the asphalt for days. They seemed to be having a ball.

If some things work out soon, I'll be giving it a try myself.

I ride man, I had a '99 R1100S for a year and traded it in for a '01 R1100RT after putting 36,000mi on the thing. Then I put about 37k on the RT for the 13 months I had it prior to high-siding it in the mountains of NE Georgia after breaking the rear tire loose around a left hander (note:there is a difference between Sport and Sport Touring bikes). I've now got a '01 Triumph Speed Triple that is way more fun to ride, but gets tiresome for me after about 6 hrs. I long for another 54hour Augusta Ga. to L.A. Cali solo ride that is so easy on a BM. The Triumph is most fun on the track or in the mountains, but you can't beat a Beemer for sport touring, touring, and probably "hypertouring" considering the arrival of the 167hp (more than my '94 130 or so hp 318i) K1200S. I'm looking real hard at the new R series 1200's but I love Guzzis for touring as well. Motorcycles are just ace period. I feel ya Dances!

my father has had 3 Beemers in the past 6 months. his first was a F650GS, and after a while, he traded up to a 2001 R1150GS Adventure, and a couple months later, he brought home a 2005 R1150GS Adventure, fully loaded. Also, this weekend, we are picking up an '05 Triumph Rocket 3. I can't afford a Beemer, even if my parents (read: mom) would let me, so I've got my eye of an '03 Triumph Speed four.
