Hi rider people. I'm an older fellow (83) with a 2015 K1600 GTL, have ridden to Canada and back from Los Angeles(solo) rode to Alaska (Anchorage and Fairbanks) and back from Los Angeles (2012), around the USA (2015) and all over the western States. Wife rides a Harley but we still manage to enjoy riding together. Now living in Bass Lake, Ca, near Yosemite.

Welcome from the State of Jefferson (SOJ51). The other side of Yosemite. I tell everyone I'm old, but now I feel like a pup.

Welcome to the forum Bill, from Medford, OR. If up this way, be sure to stop in for coffee/conversation. But perhaps wait until the weather is better. I had to take I-5 in my truck today as the Crater Lake hwy. was closed due to deep snow and downed trees.

I have wondered how many miles I have left in this old body. Looks like I'm good to go for another 10years.
You're my hero Bill.

Welcome from Montana. I Spend to much time looking at the snow and thermometer (5degF) right now.
Happy riding and glad you are here.
