From the gr8 state of Texas. Currently without steed but hope to fix that soon. Looking at BMW GS1250. I started many years ago on a minibike my dad welded together for me i was 7 years old. 2 hp Briggs Stratton LOL. I owned a Penton 125 motocross bike i raced when i could keep the gearbox functioning. Maaco, Husqvarna, then eventually a Honda CB 450. Now many years later still hafta ride and like those BMWs. Anyway good to get started on the forum.
