I had never even been near a motorcycle until age 57. In the nine years since then I've racked up more than 130K miles including a solo 7,200 miles cross country trip last year. I've done a couple of IBA SaddleSore rides and this year I was the RallyMaster for the BMW Club of Southern California's Park 'N Ride Rally. I was a finisher in last year's BMR which brought out my competitive nature. I ride a 2009 BMW F650 GS twin and expect this year to be as much fun as last.
