It's my first day

Hey fellas
my name is traeden. im relatively new to the motorcycle world. in a nutshell i my brother had an old 1983 BMW R80RT down in san francisco and said if i could make it home i could have it. so after takinga 2 day course and getting my license i flew down there and had my maiden voyage home (tahoe is awesome to ride through) so i'm currently trying to fix my bike because some D-bag in my apartment complex messed it up because i park in car spaces....) so this is a shout out to anyone who knows people that would be beneficial to get to know that 1. are savvy when it comes to mechanical work on older airheads and 2. that like to go on rides so when i get my bike fixed ill be in the know. feel free to give me an email with any details at traeden.nord@gmail.com thanks.

Nice job! I really liked the stills and the fish eye lens on the turns.
It looked like an easy tour though. Nice crash seal!

Okay, are you still on your meds?

Next time you are on your GS look down. Those two big things
sticking out to hit rocks and trees are air cooled cylinders for
your boxer motor.

Your other BMW POS has the water cooled brick motor.

Just follow the yellow brick road scarecrow, the wizard will help you.

Ride Saturday?

Anyone wanna ride on Saturday? Some kind of one-day ride from SLC, suitable for big but knarly bikes. Some highway/ freeway is ok.... Skyline drive? Soapstone/ Iron Mine? Whitney Reservoir?

Which one of you bitches is gonna ride with Ryman and I this weekend?

I will leave tomorrow afternoon. My folks have laid out the welcome mat for anyone who wants to camp in their yard. They do have a wedding happening in part of the yard on Saturday night, but we won't be in each other's way.

My wife is headed out in the cage and can haul gear if you don't want to pack everything on your bike.

We can take care of the food once we are out there.

Call me if you are interested and we can arrange a place to meet.
