Details:

Many people have expressed an interested in having online chat available for owners, enthusiasts, wannabes and fanatics of BMW's R (mainly R1150R) bikes. This possibility has now become a reality. Setting your system up for online chat is quick and easy. This page tells you how to install AOL Instant Messenger (AIM) on your computer (it's free), as well as how to find out who is chatting, and when/what we are going to be talking about. We will schedule specific dates and times for certain topics although the conversations will certainly not be limited to the topic at hand. Of course, you will always be able to see what other people are signed on and you can chat whenever you want provided there is someone with your interests (BMW's) to chat with. To the best of my ability, I will try to provide a synopsis of things that we talked about at the scheduled chat sessions. I hope you all enjoy!!! Feel free to email me with any questions! doug@r1150r.net
