I can sympathize- I grew up outside of Chicago, which is why I moved south 33 years ago. Brrrrrrrrrr

First post, hi everyone. Here's me at the Dragon on my '63GS that I restored. Hoping to get a BMW 650 of some variety in a short while for big trips and commuting. Cheers.

Nice GTS (and pics!), and do yourself a favor, put on some Michelin City Grips, you'll be amazed how much comfort you gain.
