    Hi:
    I just got a BMW Adventure last week. I live in Orinda, CA.
    I like to join you guys for rides.

    Is there a special person in charge?
    Thank you

    Hi, looks like you're finding your way around this place :wink:

    Nope, no one's in charge, it's really kind of a loose association based on who's wants to make the effort.

    This thread is set up as a way to organize a group dinner/gab session for East Bay riders. You're closer to the East Bay than me, and they let me join once, so you should be good too :evil .

    What kind of riding experience do you have? Do you like off-road stuff? I checked your profile but couldn't really tell...

    I tend toward solo riding & off-road myself, but there are often people posting in the West regional threads looking for people to join them on rides.

    Group rides are often less enjoyable for my tastes, mostly because I prefer to set my own pace and find myself focusing more on staying with the group than enjoying the ride, or improving my riding skills, as I can when I'm by myself. But that's just me. There's probably a hint in there as well as to why I've only made one of these meet & eats...:eek1

    There seems to be a pretty active BMW NorCal owner's group that schedules monthly rides--have you checked there? Also, Adventure Designs in Hayward has monthly rides on Saturdays leaving from their shop.

    Anyway, welcome, and enjoy the ride!

    Like they say: do you want to talk to the man in charge or the woman who knows what's going on?

    Just back from a 10-day ride around Oregon - getting dirty on the big V-Strom.

    I'm in for a meet and eat this week, provided work doesn't keep me late.

    I say same place - Lanesplitters Berkeley.

    This week? I can make it, to any of the usual places. LaneSplitter's on San Pablo in Berkeley works, they have some big round tables, as I remember - and maybe tables out back, too?
