New Guy From Kansas

Hey all,

I am new to the site. I will be moving to the NW area around Lake Zurich in August from Kansas. I am overseas and headed home from another deployment. I ride a 08' BMW K1200S. Ive been riding for several years. Where I'm from there are no twisties, just boring, straight, roads with small hills the size of ant piles. Im looking forward to the move and hope to meet some of ya'll soon and start learning my way around that Gigantic area.

Respectfully,

Rob

Welcome, LZ is not too far from me.

Where are you from in Kansas? I am from Kansas.
