BMW bike forums in BC?

Just got my first bike (1986 BMW R80RT), really itís not a sport bike, more of a touring bike.

Are there any forums for BMW bike owners that you would recommend, or any in BC specifically? Iím totally new to BMW bikes (and still very new to the technical side of bikes in general), and will have some questions Iím sure.

Thanks to anyone who can point the way, I was surprised I didnít find much on Google yet. I thought with how nerdy this bike is, there would be a ton of forums!

Mods, I didnít think there was anything against the rules about asking for another forum link in this case, just erase and PM me if Iím out of line.

Yeah, still not sure if Im in love with the front fairing or not. The first long trip Im sure ill love it, but the big thing for me was the fact I can slap a classic plate on it, Its in great condition and should make a good starter bike for me.

Ill give it a year, then may convert the front fairing to an S model one.

Thanks for the suggestion on forum!

Nice bike, I ride an 86 K100RS myself. The RT fairing was actually wind tunnel designed for 2 up riding just as the RS fairing was designed for 1 up riding, so you might keep that in mind if you consider the change. ...Lower bars would also be required to make it correct.
