Thanks for all the advise. I think I will go for the R1100R. Seeing as how I live in Winnipeg I probably won't be ridding for awhile. Anticipation is a beautiful thing.

GT is my favorite, now almost 5,000 miles on it. Rode Sunday here on the edge of Canada. Maybe this global warming is real?

More than 132,000 (recently corrected higher) motorcycle riders have died in traffic crashes since the enactment of the Highway Safety Act of 1966 and The National Traffic and Motor Vehicle Safety Act of 1966. Be careful out there.

Yes sir, I spend at least half the week 2 miles from you. I'll get on the SO CA forum and see if we can't do something about this!

Sorry, the local Social Instigator has been spending way too much time up in the Great NorthWet. I'll try to do better next year.

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...
