You really SHOULD speak up. There's a lot of respect for female riders around here.

It was late 2000 when a chance meeting with Sean Daly in a parking lot would introduce me to Cary's site. Those who know me know what a fantastic memory I have \:\/ , but the two first large group gatherings which pretty much sealed the deal for me was Gleno's Tech Daze and the Pied Piper run to The 2001 Redmond BMWMOA rally. Met a great group of people at both events and have been meeting more ever since. (Many I have the pleasure of meeting for the first time multiple times! ref. memory above!)
All the Unrallys except Eureka Springs.
All Spring Torreys since 2002


Happy 10th!
Hoping for many more!
Thank you Cary, David, and Leslie in addition to all the moderators past and present!

Happy Birthday BMWST.com. This board is the best that I have seen and had the pleasure of participating on. The depth of knowledge is only surpassed by the depth of friendship and support mixed with compassion and good hearted fun. Rarely are the rubber hoses used by the moderators and for the most part, civility reigns within the domain. Thank you to all that have worked to make this Board such a pleasure to come to on a daily basis.

Coincidentally it's been 2 years almost to the day when I registered on this site. Since then I've had a tremendous education about my bike, how to ride as well as general conversations about the world and other things, funny and serious. I went to a tech daze in Salt Lake City and, as it turned out met some of the more infamous cadre of this site, Killer, Jamie, Kaiser and have had major fun with my ongoing story about being 4' 11" and owning a 1200 RT and the trials of getting on and off my bike with the height disadvantage. I think that thread must have been over 20 pages and it was just before Torrey.
After Torrey I moved to North Carolina and what connects me to Utah, where I lived for 25 years, has been the ongoing trips that many take there. I miss that and plan to make the trip again when things settle down for me. In the meantime, thanks for the great information, fun topics and feeling like I'm part of a family even though I'm not as active as many on the site. It's important to me.
Bruce

Wow! 10 years already?

I think the best times are those spent meeting others. Things like "In Search Of" or maybe the Lighthouse Tour or even the Tech Days.

Speaking of In Search Of... I happened by The Brookdale Lodge the other day. Looks like they're remodeling. Could be time for another trip to see the ghosts soon \:\)

Here since 2002, I've found this a friendly place that offers lots of excellent info. I've even learned to tolerate the 150th oil post, the pistoleros (should I pack my Glock?)... because I've discovered some great folks here...even to my (Yankee-New York-Northeastern Liberal) surprise from the state of Georgia. They were as wonderful a surprise as the N. Georgia mountains.
Happy Anniversary...Thanks for the hard work of Cary, David, and Mama Hoon. Thanks to the moderators. Thanks for El Paseo, the UnRally, Torrey, Beer,Brats & Beemers, etc.

I really don't remember how I got turned on to RT.com? I think is was dogpile the search engine. My first real interaction was when I met Cary, Jim Lawson, Sean (K1200LT), and another local RT rider in Frisco CO. for a ride through Rocky Mountain National Park. That was summer of 2000. My profile says registered in August? In summer of 2001 "Short Cut" posted asking for help with unloading stuff in Redmond for the RT.com BBQ, so I decided to ride out and help. What a great bunch of folks. "Chris from NYC", aka Tender Vittles? The now infamous Tom Roe, of Betty's Bikes and Buns fame. He introduced me to Team Strange Link and they introduced me to IBR syle riding. Boy has that been great for me. When the UN-ONE was held in Gunnison,I helped out as much as I could. Meeting Gleno, EffBee, Ebie, Stan and Jan, it was great. I haven't been able to make any of the rest of the UN's, but that may change. I still buy all of my parts from Marin BMW. This site has been a valuable resource for me since summer of 2000. The "collective" nearly always knows the answer! Thanks to Cary for starting it, David for keeping up the high standards, and Les for continuing the tradition. It has been my go to site for all things M/C for at least the past 8 years.
