Hello from SoCal!

Hi everyone! New member here from San Diego, California! (All the way in the southern part of the state, right near the border with Mexico.)

Just purchased my 2019 G310R last Tuesday (May 7) and have already ridden 400 miles! Love it!

I've had my motorcycle license since 16 but I've only ridden 150 cc scooters until now. (I'm 42.) For the last 11 years I have been riding a Vespa LX150 that I also purchased new. Planned on trading it in for the BMW, but I couldn't part with it yet, so I have both now lol.

Welcome, good to see you purchased the correct color 310R ;-)

I also alternate between 310R and a scooter (albeit a fast C650 Sport) and find each has their attractions.

Happy motoring, from Marina del Rey

Congrats on your new purchase. There is a large BMW club in San Diego, with many nice folks. Unfortunately, their rides are a bit too fast and too far for my current likes, but if you want to learn about all the wonderful roads in and around San Diego I suggest that you join or at least visit them.

BMW Owners Club of San Diego

I have a white GS that I purchased in April. Fun bike. Not too long ago I had a 300 Sport also in red.

I live in Escondido, just a little north of SD
