Another Canuck

Just bought a used K1300GT and did a quick 1300 mile tour this weekend. This is my first BMW in 40+ years of riding and I am impressed. Looking forward to the next few summers.

Just a note about my forum name 'Hellsbasement' - I live close to Medicine Hat in the south east corner of Alberta - very hot and dry (at least for Canada). One of the first settlers in the area thought that if Hell had a basement this is what it would be like.
