That would be mine. Joe just went out of his way to take a look at it for me before I committed the rest of the funds.

That's the side of Joe most people don't know.

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...

You DO know you didn't have to go all the way to the Carolinas to get a nice R1150GS, don't you? Mathias BMW in New Philly had an '04 (IIRC) for sale - nice too. It was my very first BMW test ride ever and that bike completely sold me on the brand.

Could've saved you about a 600 mile ride. Oh, wait a minute....nevermind.

Nice ride!
