    Member Bio:

    I own a 2015 BMW R1200RT. I live in Dublin, CA so I have only had the pleasure of riding with a few of you.  A special thanks to Chuck Beattie who continues to be a source of knowledge, inspiration, and amusement.  I have been on several multi-state, multi-week rides with the longest ride to Nova Scotia and back, 11,000 miles, and 6 weeks of riding on my RT. If I lived closer to Santa Barbara I would be joining folks on lots of rides in that beautiful part of the state. Maybe someday! I started riding about 1973 on a Honda 550 four-cylinder bike in the Navy. After not riding for decades, the next bike was a 2003 Harley Davidson V-Rod, then a custom bike built for me by Arlen Ness called a Low Liner (2032 cc twin cylinder beast), and finally my favorite of all, the BMW RT. I used to be a flight instructor so learning, exploring, having tons of fun, and doing all of that safely is baked into my approach to riding as well.
