Hello from Huntsville
« on: March 26, 2018, 03:37:04 PM »
Haven't owned a bike in almost 35 years. Turning 60 soon so in the process of buying an adventure bike (BMW F700). Interested in any group activities for the adventure bike folks.

Welcome Menright! Keep your eye on Ride Planning and Planned Rides as well as events. Jump in when you see something you like. Post pics when you get them and enjoy reading through the ride reports and other threads that interest you. Let us know if you have any questions.

 Welcome! Long time to be off of a motorcycle. Don't push yourself, ease back into it.

Welcome from Birmingham, from a fellow 60 year old and BMW rider.  Glad you got back into it.

Belated greetings from another Huntsville rider.  I ride the roads myself, but I have some friends in the North Alabama Vintage Motorcycle Club who are dual sport and flat track adventurers as well.  Since you're in Huntsville, please join us any Saturday morning at the Blue Plate Cafe II (corner of S. Memorial Parkway and Byrd Spring Rd) at 8 am for breakfast.  Though our passion is vintage bikes, all bikes and riders are welcome.  We'd love to meet and greet you!
