Title: New Member from Southern California
Post by: HeyLoosie on October 18, 2018, 11:22:45 PM
 :305:  Hi, all - I just purchased a 2016 S1000R with 8,000+ miles from a BMW riding buddy who thinks he needs to get a dual sport.  I've been riding a K1200S for years, and I'm excited to be dropping 100 lbs in weight (the bike, you guys!!) while keeping the 160 hp.  I'm looking forward to making some like-riding friends!!  BMW's rock!!
Ciao   :158: :152:

I bought the very last 2018 S1000R sold at CJ Wilson Motorsports in Murrietta.  I took delivery of it 3days before they closed.  I had the 600 mike service done at BMW Riverside.  Itís too bad they closed. Was a good dealership.

Cool. I'm in San Jacinto and available mostly during the week (teach paragliding (https://www.expandingknowledge.com/Jerome/PG/Main.htm) most often on weekends) to go riding. I like to ride up the 74 towards Idyllwild and beyond. Send an email (https://www.expandingknowledge.com/Jerome/Contact/Email.htm#Address_Email_Jerome) if you want to join me riding.

We occasionally organize SoCal get-togethers.  We should get something going since we have a few new members from the area.

I live in Chicago but keep my S1000R in Manhattan Beach.  I really enjoy riding the Palomar Mountain area and all around the general mountains in SCAL.  It would be great to get a group together.  I plan on getting back to SCAL in mid-January-Early Feb and going to spend a week in Palm Desert in April.  A group ride then would be fantastic.  Thanks.  -Dan

Congrats on your weight loss, you look awesome :) And welcome.  :400:

Miles as I'm not around you'll have to take the reins and organize the next So Cal ride but I'll try to come down and join  :305:

I was wondering how that worked. Do you register your bike in Ca, or in Il?
