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! [email protected]

It should be noted that AIM does come with Netscape, so check to see if it is
already installed on your machine. If you are not sure, go ahead and download
it as this will ensure you have the latest version.
