A 2nd introduction

Hi all, I just thought i should do another introduction post. I have been a member here for years when I first got an interest in motorcycles, but never was in the right position to get a bike. However, now I am in college and getting bike is looking more and more beneficial both economic and ease of parking. So, its good to be back and I hope to be joining you all on two wheels soon!

Mark

Re: A 2nd introduction

Glad you're finally settling in on a bike that'll fit your needs. Of all the bikes that BMW makes, the 650GS seems best suited for college campuses. Far easier to maneuver & park and it can take abuse with no problem. Keep us updated when you take the bait. Pics & ride report, plz.
