    Standard Hello from Texas!

    Howdy,

    I got an R1200GS and really dig it. I may have to struggle with the German language but if I see it enough, I'll pick it up.

    Hope to have fun here. 8)

    welcome here and greetings to Texas. It's getting quite international here and that's good.

    Uwe

    Hi!

    I'm sure that you will have fun here.
    Cordially welcome to the forum!

    It seems to me, that it will fit: a cow rider in Texas. :twisted:
    (a BMW motorcycle is always called a "cow" in german).

    One point is still interesting to me: how did you find us?

    Regards Ron

    Hi Pinecone,

    cordially welcome on board.
    I hope you overcome the hurricane in a good condition.
    The language problem shouldn't be a big one, some member are living near by you resp are able to translate.

    But there is a big issue --> What's the colour of the GS ?
    In the R12 corner that is really important to know ;-)

    Ad the end one wish, could you give us a real name, " Hallo Kienapfel" sounds a little strong

    Howdy Pinecone,

    welcome in our little GS-Forum and greeting to Texas.

    Long time time ago (1977-1979) I had the pleasure to live in El Paso, Texas. I had a great time there.

    Welcome on board.
    It seems you are the first real cowboy in the midst of all the Krauts.

    If you see somewhere in here a “Q” … that’s the German Nickname for a BMW Motorcycle. It came from a Motorcycle Tester on the old Airheads. He called them a “Rubber cow” (Gummi Kuh).

    Have fun with your "Q" and lots of SMiles.

    Keep the shiny side up!

    Hans

    Thanks for the warm welcome.

    Hurricane Rita did very little damage to where I live. It barely even rained! The big damage came from the chaos of folks evacuting Houston and Galveston. We rode the storm out.

    My R12GS's colour is Ozeanblau. That's Ocean Blue for you folks in Beaumont.

    My real name is Jeff.

    I never really thought of my bike, or any BMW for that matter, as a cow. But if it gives that impression, OK.

    As you probably know the Harley Guys call there Bikes "Hogs".
    But a Harley Davidson dose not have anyting to do with a pig.

    I'd rather ride a cow then a pig thats the reason I named my GS "Longhorn".

    Sincerly: Hans

    Jeff, for Non-German-Speakers it isn't easy to follow, I know.
    You will often read, as already mentioned by Hans, Q for the BMW.
    In german "Q" sounds equal as "Kuh" (Cow).

    The whole story you will find here (as a german lesson) ;-) -> http://forum.gs-forum.de/viewtopic.php?t=1206
