New member from Colorado

Hi all,

Just wanted to say hi from Colorful Colorado. Spent the last year riding an R1200GSA then went to a BMW demo event and realized the K1600 was simply a bike I couldn't live without. Been on the GT for a couple months now and the odometer just rolled past 3500.

Loving every minute of it and happy to be part of the group.

Talking This forum has already been very useful (Intro post #2)

As I said in intro post #1, I've had my K1600GT for a couple months now and love it. My only complaint had been figuring out how to get the bikes BT to pair with my Sena20S along with the Navigator V and my iphone. Thanks to a thread I found here, I finally got everything working the way I thought it was supposed to. I can receive calls, listen to the bikes audio and get voice commands from the GPS. The smartlink app was another cool feature I didn't even know existed.

SouthEast Aurora. Close to Parker. Apparently on the other side of the hills from you.

Lots of sweet ways to go back and forth from you to Darby! Even the interstate is a good ride.

Im just south of Grand Junction off HWY 50

I've got a good friend that lives down in Elizabeth. If you have the time later this summer, I'm hosting a BBQ and ride. There will be some folks coming from your area so you wouldn't have to ride alone.

Info here.
