I live in the state of North Carolina in the USA. I am a 75 year old rider. I've been riding for 58 years, but don't ride nearly as much as I used to. I have owned all brands of motorcycles over the years, but mostly Harley's. I have been getting into BMW's the last few months. I currently have a 1969 BMW R60/2 in really nice condition. It was gone through mechanically at 51,000 miles and currently has 62,000 miles on it, and the paint is original, and very nice condition. I also have a very nice original1989 R100RT Mono with 23,000 miles that has recently been gone through and is in pristine condition. I also have held on to my super nice, 2002 Harley Roadking Screamin Eagle, with 12,000 miles on it. In my "golden years" I have become a fair weather, and short distance rider, but I still do ride.

Re: New Member 1/25/2021 - Need to Reset Password

Postby lightman45 » Mon Feb 01, 2021 6:02 am

I need to reset my password. i received the email to reset my password, but I can't click on the link that was sent to me. I've done it twice and received the reset password with link twice and the same thing. I tried copying and pasting the link and that doesn't work either. Please let me know what I am doing wrong? My email is "hdhog1@charter.net", and I think my user name is "lightman45" Thanks, Jim

Hmm about 240 miles then. Sometimes I find it hard to remember that North Carolina is nearly twice the area of Scotland.
