Been riding for many years. Most of my riding was in Southern CA but I grew up in MI. Rode Harley's (Super Glides and Road Kinds) in Los Angeles CA but now into BMW Sport Touring bikes. I'm glad to be back in MI but seriously looking for the nice rides that I had in CA. I miss the windy twisty canyon roads.

Welcome to the forums. I used to live out in the Hemet /San Jacinto once upon a time.

Welcome to TWM, there are some nice rides in Michigan, but nothing like twisty canyon roads. Nearest option, I'm told is Hocking Hills, OH. :)

Hocking Hills is a really great place to ride but Michigan does offer some decent roads here and there. West of Manchester is some nice roads that hook into the West Side Loop - Waterloo, Hell, Gregory, Unadilla, Stockbridge - google those areas. Also up north is some fantastic rides as far as scenery. Welcome to the site.

After years of owning Harleys (Dyna Super Glide Sport and Road King FLHRI) I decided to buy a BMW. Love the agility and smoothness and there's better dealer support for the BMW at BMW Motorcycles of Grands Rapids.

Best regards,
Jason

Werd around the forum is that you have a great bike. I lived in Santa Ana , near the Tustin boarder. Miss the location not the cost of living there.

Welcome, where in Michigan are you? I didn't see it under your profile. I like you BMW also. I am fond of the sport touring side of our sport.

I'm in Grand Rapids. The Concours was one of the bikes I looked at when buying the last bike.

BMW's are nice bikes all around, regardless of which one.

Thanks All. I am really loving this bike. It's going in today to get the navigation installed and I'm thinking about putting some better tires on it. It had the Battlax BT021's and I want the new Michelin Road Pilot 3's.
