Blast from the Past.........

Found my login still works....... Nina and I feel much the same as Larry and Mrs. Whip :-) I joined just a few months before he did I think, and since then we've had the incredible pleasure and honor to meet many of the board members in two US trips we made.

Due to various happenings in our life (AND time spent on Facebook) I dropped off the BMWST radar a bit over the past few years..... but we're still riding. Now mostly on our GS.

Some of the things I was working on failed, some plans we had just didn't happen. But some other things went well.

For one thing, we moved our holiday apartment in the French Alps to a permanent resident in the Italian hills of Umbria.

And now Larry 'told' us to come over in 2016...... and we still have some frequent flyer miles left from my previous life.....

..... so....

..... we might just show up next July, hoping to see a bunch of familiar faces again and share a bunch of rider hugs ! Before we get too old to bear the stress of travel grin grin

Pending any unusual changes to my status, I'm unofficially in!

Well, since I've known about this for a little while, I might as well admit it.

I'M IN!

I haven't had too many Beemers, I just don't have enough time.

Oh hell yeah! Red Lodge, Beartooth, Chief Joseph.....I love that part of the country.

No idea if I can make it work to get out there, but I will do everything I can to pull it off.
