As you might figure out from my name (BoulderBuckeye), I am originally from Ohio but have lived in Boulder (Louisville) Colorado for 30 years. I have been a rider for 50 years. Just purchased a 2014 GS after selling my beloved 2006 Yamaha FJR1300. I am retired (more riding time) having taught High School Physical Science for 34 years. I bought the GS to expand my riding into the back country of Colorado. I am looking forward to meeting and riding with some locals and of course keeping up on the latest issues posted on this forum. Thanks and great to be here.
