New Members: Introduce Yourself Here
Author Last Post

Hey my name is Cliff and I am a new member and just got a K1600 GTL on the road . Very excited to get riding. I live in the Augusta area. Please don’t hesitate to reach out for any ride ideas.

Hi, Randall!
Good plan..., that thing about purchasing a motorcycle.  My 1st bike (pre-owned 2007 1200RT) was a key element of my pre-retirement planning in 2007.   Enjoyed that one so much that at around 85K miles I traded for a new 2017 RT. It just clicked over 36K.

You are joining a great group of people.  Attend some meetings, rides and food events.  Meet a few people and ride.  Perfect time of year!

New member here from south of Atlanta.  Purchased a 2009 R1200RT (Sand Beige - my 1st BMW) back in March as the plan is to eventually do some touring.  The other bike is a Honda VFR.

Hoping to get to a gathering or two if the stars align.  In the mean time, I will continue to envy those of you on the north side of Atlanta.

Ride safe!

Hello all - I am a new member. Have not been a regular rider for a long time. Recently retired and purchased a 2016 RS in March and have been riding mostly solo.  Looking forward to joining some group rides. Look forward to meeting you. Many thanks.


name is John rose.

Ride a 2014 r1200 gsa

looking to meet other riders interested in taking some bdr rides

looking forward to the gmr in May.

Thank you Don, I registered for the GMR today so we are all set in that area. We'll also be arriving 1 day early to the Fairgrounds and have made arrangements with them as such. I'll be hauling our Aspen camper as I've had it since 2012 and only used it maybe half a dozen times. Might as well get some use of it! Afterward we'll head down to Mt. Airy to visit family. See you then....... 
Hi, Rob!
Chiming in late, but with a WELCOME comment nonetheless.  Yes, you should go ahead a register for the May 1-3 Georgia Mountain Rally (GMR) as it will be a great way to meet other members.  My wife and I elect to stay in a Hiwassee motel rather than tent camp....

I frequently ride in the Clarkesville, Helen, Toccoa, and Highlands NC areas and would be glad to point out a few good roads which you'll need to know about.

There's another new member in the Athens area (Loren Hunt) whom I haven't met so maybe there will be another connection as well.

Oops, looks like I started a new thread for my intro post!  Well here it is again in the proper area.....

Hi all, Rob and Debbie Sprague here from southern NJ. Just wanted to introduce ourselves and say hello. I have a 2006 BMW K1200LT with a 2012 Hannigan trike conversion along with a 2009 R1200RT and a 2004 K1200GT. We both prefer mostly long distance riding on the trike and some shorter forays on the RT. I haven’t used the KGT at all in the last 2 years as my style of riding has changed. Since my wife and I are retired, we’ve wanted to exit NJ for quite some time and relocate south. My oldest brother did make the move to Mt. Airy, GA a few months back and he loves it but it’s difficult to leave other family still living here. Except for a stint in the military, I’ve resided in NJ all my life. We’ll see what 2020 has in store for us as far as relocating. I also plan to attend the May rally in Hiawassee for some relaxation and to do some visiting. Thanks……..

Hey everyone,  

My name is Mike Scarbrough and I live in the Brookhaven area.  I ride a 2019 BMW R1250 GSA and have owned several other BMW's as well as many other brands.  I have been riding since I was 8 years old and raced motocross for several years.  My wife and I have 3 children and 5 grandchildren and love the outdoors.  We have an RV and just got back from a 4 week trip out west.  I would like to meet some other riders that live in the greater Atlanta area.   Looking forward to the next social meeting/ride to meet some of the members.  

New member here... My name is Paul Hollis, I have been riding for nearly 30 years and currently have a 2008 GS 1200. I am looking forward to the fall weather, and maybe getting a chance to meet and ride with some of you. I reside in the Kennesaw area, and travel extensively for work.. I am trying to change that this fall! 


Hello, I guess I missed this thread when I signed up a few weeks back.  

I'm Jose RT-GSA, I met a few of you at the dinner and at the campground during the MOA Rally last weekend.  I was at the table with Darcy his wife, Scott and Eric.  It was great meeting all of you and looking forward to future rides and gatherings.  I'm on the north east side of town (Dacula - Hamilton Mill - Lawrenceville area). 

I've been riding exclusively on two wheels since 99.  Sport bikes, dirt bikes, then got into sport touring back in 2004  (R1150RT followed by R1200RT), and recently started riding adventure bike  (GS adventure).  

My current bikes are KX 125 motocross, 2005 R1200RT, and 2013 R1200GS 90th anniversary edition adventure.

I enjoy the outdoors and consider myself a bit of an adrenaline junkie.  I have a wife and two teen aged kids who enjoy trips to the mountains, camping, going to the beech, and sharing my other passion (4 wheeling- rock crawling - adventure riding in the jeep)  

I'm excited to have joined and looking forward to rides and meeting more of you.  



Welcome, Mike.  I also live near the Square off Cole.  Not heading to the rally but look forwarded to meeting.

Hello Michael.  Welcome to the club.  And welcome to the Marietta area.

Hope to see you at the National.  Please join us for dinner on Friday night at the Rally.
Hey everyone,

My name is Mike Gross. I bought a 2018 R1200RT recently, I just came over from Indian. I have been checking out BMW’s for a while. I finally decided the technology and the low weight were to close to pass up. I also have a Ducati Supersport.  I do ride often with my girlfriend, Jan, as a passenger. We live near the Marietta Square and hope to ride more and meet more people. We are going to the national rally. 
Welcome, Juan!

I live in the Canton area but I work in Alpharetta.  On good weather days I'll often ride to work (though there have been few of those so far this year).  There are a couple club events coming up in June.  Hope to see you there!
