Hello, as the title states I'm from the Boston area, New England is just another great and in may cases unique place to ride. While Winter does sometime force a 3-4 month break riding in the Spring, Summer and Fall makes up for that especially the fall!! If you have not experienced it think about coming up late September thru October you will not be disappointed by the scenery, awesome country and mountain roads, food or the people! I have owned BMW's R1150, K1200S and now a R1200RT. I'm also an airplane pilot as well as a Helicopter pilot so I time share between riding and flying :-)!

Thanks and Glade to member!
Fred

I am from NY and a diehard Yankee fan! (I've lived in CA for the last 38 years. You can take the boy out of NY, but..........)

Welcome Fred. I’m from NH, and I think the Yankmees suck wayyyyy more than the angels.

Welcome to I-bmw Fred


Best site there is!


You can put some folks on your "ignore" list. That way, you won't hafta put up with the diehard (he's only a pain in the bum when his team is winning, otherwise he's pretty discrete...) on the leftcoast.


Post a pic of that bike will ya?


Cheers
