Noob greetings from San Antone. I ride an old-ish BMW R1100S but have always have sinful desires for a GS bike. The Guzzi Stelvio is a close second but the jugs face the wrong directions.

I'm an airplane mechanic so I'll never have the luxury of being able to lock up the office and furlough my secretaries for six months to take off to Alaska. It's nice to read the accounts of those of you who can do this stuff though. I did meet MotoHank a few weeks ago. 500000 miles on a GS!!! Living my dreams vicariously thru others.

Anyway, I thought I would sign up to keep an eye on your "flea market". Might pull the trigger on an old 1150GS some time.

Welcome to the asylum!

Keep an eye out for the occasional local meet and greets in your area.

Welcome OldM3!

Hey there,

I too live in San Antonio. Welcome to the motorcycle porn site. I also work and don't have the luxury to take months at a time, but I am hoping for at least a couple of one-week trips in 2015--one to Big Bend and another to Monument Valley.

PS. If you don't know Hank Arriazola yet, I recommend you pay him a visit down in Dilley, TX. He is the best BMW mechanic in the area and sometimes has older GS's for sale. Here is his web site:
2013 Super Tenere
2005 R1200GS
1989 Honda CB250
1984 Honda Interceptor 500
