Lurking since 2001.....

Hello from San Francisco!

Started lurking here in 2001 when I bought my '01 K1200rs. Now that I've added a '15 K1300s I've decided finally to say "hey there."

Just returned from a 2000 mile trip through Kings Canyon / Sequoia National Park / Death Valley / Utah / Nevada / High Sierras, and the K13 was amazing. It impresses me every time I'm on it.

I followed the forum's advice and added the Clearwater Darla lights--and they are amazing, especially in the desert darkness.

Now looking for a top case and backrest for my passenger .... not too many options out there, it seems.

Cheers!

Thanks for coming out of hiding after 17 years Damien - that's likely a record

Re: Lurking since 2001.....

Welcome to the site Damien. How about posting up a ride report in this forum, http://www.i-bmw.com/forumdisplay.php?f=92 because that's some beautiful riding country you've been through and we're big on photos around here!
