Welcome to ADV. A great family, with tons of info & help.
I'm a new airhead owner myself, and just started the learning process also. Mine is a '78 r100s.
Many turn to Snowbum... bmwmotorcycletech.info/
Good luck with the bike. Maybe we'll cross paths in S.D. county someday. I really enjoy riding the Lake Henshaw, Mt. Palomar, Anza Borrego area's.
