    I donated my snow shovel to our neighbors when we left Minnesota 20+ years ago. It is tough having a 12 month riding season.

    Sadly, it is a burden I have had to carry almost my entire life as well... :cry

    Yes, you can ride 12 months in Florida but I don't always. Especially the few Hottest months put a real hurtin on you when you do the ATTGATT thing.

    You are surely preaching to the choir about that issue. Years ago I would ride when the heat index was over 115 ATGATT, but the truth is I can no longer do that. I would have been inspired to ride in the hot summer months of my GS arrived long time ago but that isn't going to be the case now. The truth is I ride on the weekends and I usually leave my house at 6:30 AM when it is somewhat cooler and hope to get home by lunch. There are advantages and disadvantages to each and every corner of the world when it comes to riding and all other issues of course. It takes me an hour and a half just to get to the first interesting road to ride so being able to ride all year round is not always an advantage

    Good roads is something I'm blessed with. I can leave my doorstep and be on a good road as soon as I make the first turn :D Unfortunately that comes along with snow and ice for at least 3 months out of the year. A blessing and a burden we bear in the Northeast.

    But, NH, VT, Me, Northern NY and Western Mass are some of the best motorcyleing in the country, and all of it is reachable in a day. If that's not enough, I can be into Quebec (the Gaspe), New Brunswick, or Nova Scotia in a day.

    In fact, in a couple weeks, I'll be going up to Vermont for a week to "watch the leaves change". Of course, along with that I'll be doing some quality riding :clap Of couse it'll have to be on my old, outdated 2013 LC.

    As you move toward the center of the state and northern Florida there are some nice roads... And after riding here for 25 years I have found that if you close your eyes on some of the less interesting roads they suddenly become more interesting. :D

    Also if I mount my iPad in my field of vision playing a YouTube video of a ride in the Alps that also helps

    I have ridden in your area of the world on many occasions with a smile on my face the entire time. It would be amazing to be so close to that many incredible places to see. Please post more ride reports and pictures immediately before I start crying incessantly.

    yes, my friend
    thank you

    last 7 of VIN:

    EZ185482
    I will keep checking the online site to find out any more information but so far BMW's computer does not recognize that the number as it was only given to me today. If anyone knows anything else about that last seven feel free to post it here thank you

    You have the right number, at least it looks correct. The VIN look up website takes a few days to update after the bike is built. My bike showed up there about two or three days after it was built.

    Update: mine is still on the water as it seems.
