Cool Hello

Hello all,

I'm from Québec City, my ride is a K1600GT-2017. I owned a BMW car for many years however, this is my first BMW bike.

Regards,

Welcome! I agree with Ross, their bikes are better than their cars. I have owned a 3, 5 and 7 (cars) and nothing will compare in riding characteristics (when the darn things aren't in the shop). I have a Ram 1500 now that I love and low and behold all I do is put gas in it. Like they say YMMV

I have a Ram 1500 to. This is a Sport, the Canadian version. Use to put the bike in the rear box to bring my ride where is really fun to ride. This save me of the boring highway.

Agreed. I have trailering to NC rather thanride down 81. How do you get your bike into the box? I have been looking at electric winches.
