2002 BMW R1150RT

other bikes: I've had 15 previous bikes owner's life: I live in Cupertino CA,in the South Bay Area near San Jose. I'm 54 years old and have been riding close to 40 years. bike info: The new BMW is only5 weeks old. My last machine was a Honda CB900. I commute on regular surface streets and the trip is 30 minutes. I like the faring and adjustable windshield. The shifter is a bit clunky, but I hope that improves as I accumulate some miles. owner mods: No mods yet. None seem to be necessary. Perhaps I'll pinstripe it like I do my cars. costs: This is my best bike todate. It's extremely comfortable and the easiest riding bike Ihave ever owned. personal info: I am a very active member in the BMW Car Club of America and a board member of the Golden Gate Chapter.I regularly autocross my 2000 540i six speed as wellas attend driving schools at the local tracks, Laguna Seca,Sears Point, and Thunderhill Steve Albecht
