Thumbs up Congrats........Hans!!!!

Hans,

Congrats on hitting another milestone.... 300,000! Way to go!

Check it out in the Feb 2007 edition of BMWON, page 108.

Glad I had the pleasure of meeting you and your SO during some of those miles at the Hard 8 in Stephenville. Look forward to seeing you again down the road.

I look forward to it, Hans. Lunch is on me when we do. It's the least I can do if you ride over 1,000 miles just to have lunch with me!

I'll hafta admit that I was walking pretty tall when I went to Haps BMW to pick up my "puck".

There in the box was another "puck" that belonged to Brandt
(this little old skinny guy) that is at every rally I've ever been to.
his was for 500K, WOW......... I felt proud and humble all at the same time.

What really made my day is that Hap came out of his office and presented the award to me,
that old man started repairing motorcycles when he got out of the Army,
I wish I knew half of what he has forgotten.

I took the opportunity to ask him if the rumor was true, he said it was

When they added on to the shop in the early 60's they poured a lot of concrete out back
and needed a lot of backfill, they used the opportunity to rid themselves of a lot of old Harley stuff
(he used to be a dealer) saddlebags, fairings, fenders, exhaust systems, crash bars, etc. all the things people were taking of their "choppers" back then,
it went in "the hole" and six inches of re-enforced concrete sealed this "time capsule"

Good going, bud! Remember, next time y'all are here: instead of riding 300 miles all over God's land looking for a place to stay, just stay at our house.
