New to MH.

Hey everybody,

Yes, it is another Beamer in Nac (but an airhead!) Anyway, I'm Mick. I just graduated with my BA from SFA in Nacogdoches but continuing here for my masters. However, I grew up in Houston, and make it back there often.

Just wanted to take the time to join the forum and find some riders in the area. I ride an 86 BMW R80. Its my first bike, after riding dirt bikes as a kid. My dad is a Moto Guzzi dealer in Houston, as well as an excellent BMW mechanic. I suggested that I'd like to get riding last summer, and this R80 was sitting in the barn as a mechanic's lien. We spent the summer of 2009 restoring it, and I've been riding it since. 30,000 miles later and still no major repairs or issues. I love this old German engineering.

Anyway, just thought I'd join up here and see what's going on in Houston.

And hopefully this photo link will work.

So, from peeking around here, I'm the only one into vintage bikes. Is that so?
