Another New Guy from SoCal
« on: June 25, 2018, 02:49:30 pm »
Hello everyone, new Concours rider here in the SoCal area.  Looking forward to meeting up with COG members on some upcoming rides. I don't want to bore you with my life story and riding history so in the spirit of keeping it brief, I have ridden a lot of miles.  Lot's.  Mostly commuting and weekend rides with the wife, who also rides.  This Conours is my 9th motorcycle and I got a screamin deal on a new 2018 from Wheels in Motion.  I was going to buy used but they were selling new 2018's for 4,000 below MSRP and I couldn't resist.  So here I am.   ;D

There is more to be gained by members raising hands saying "I'll do that" instead of pointing fingers saying "nobody's doing that."

Greetings Jim. Mark Hartman your ever grateful SW Area Director. To echo Russ's thoughts welcome aboard and please do not hesitate to let us know if any questions, suggestions, recommendations. You have a great group of members there (though a bit unruly at times. A bit of Tabasco sauce on the flavor of life  ;) :beerchug:). This club ROK's!
