    new owner

    I just bought silver/red 2002 from Eric at EAG!! (nice experience,seems very knowledgeable) Car to arrive soon. I have been admiring Z8s for some time. I have a Ford GT and on the GT forum a number of owners also have Z8s. They all loved their Z8s and encouraged me to "pull the trigger". Was at the BMW museum in Germany and seeing the Z8 next to a 507 was incredible!! I own 3 0ther BMWs (X3,X5, and R1200RT) but of course the Z8 will be "tops"! I look forward to reading everyones posts and useful suggestions in the future about Z8 ownership.

    way upstate NY (Plattsburgh). Winter finally over and roads are clear!! I have found allot of valuable info so far. Helpful in the search for a Z8. What to look for and what to avoid!! Always helpful in having a good moderator and this forum looks well "put together"

    Great, another Z8 fellow who already owns a helmet and is not afraid of curves - as the R1200RT leads me to believe. Somebody widen the tracks, pole position is getting crowded. I hope to see you soon on one of our fabulous drives.

    Yes, r1200rt great touring bike. For me touring is all about the drive! Got back into riding a few years ago once the kids left. Did pacific coast hwy and west coast few years ago. Last summer blue ridge hwy, devil's gap etc. incredible roads. As good as anything I have driven in Europe!

    Welcome from Texas! Tip to the new owner. Take the flaslight out from the CD changer area. It can leak and make a mess.
