It's about time...
...that I properly introduce myself.
I was born and raised in Germany, but have been living in the US for the past 25 years. I come from a family of "motorcycle-nuts" and grew up in Steib sidecars and on the back of Horex, Zündapp and BMW's. Even mom was riding her own BMW R26 and R27 over 40 years ago. She just turned 75, still enjoying "moto-stories".
I've been riding for over 30 years. I've covered a whole range of bike brands and types. Although well past the "Kool-aid", I've always come back to BMW or BMW copies
I enjoy long distance travel, light off-road and don't mind weather not being perfect. I do most of my own wrenching. Currently in the stable is a '09 1200GS.
I travel frequently for business in North-, Central- and South America and Europe. Besides the English language, I'm also fluent in German and Spanish.
I am planing a RTW trip from Atlanta, GA/USA to Hamburg/Germany in 2012.
You can also find me on ADVrider.com and SovietSteeds.com
Be safe y'all
P.S.: Ahhh, ...almost forgot, ...I also enjoy a nice cup of Starbucks coffee AND ride a GS. Also, I own the entire DVD collection of Long Way Round, Long Way Down and Race to Dakar and think Ewan & Charley are awesome...
