Re: I have fully crossed over.
Loved my CLC's. Both of them. the first one positioned itself in the path of a "no light cage" that was hiding behind an early morning car at a really crazy intersection with bypasses and protected turn lanes. He came straight and T-boned me. (I turned Left in front of him) totaled both bike and car. When LEO arrived he was looking for a body bag because of all the Auto parts on the site and my bike was back on the side stand with very little noticeable damage. (Unless you knew where to look) Second one had a soft side stand mount and after three attempts to repair same and the loss of almost the total 05 riding season. BMW made a change of collateral on the original purchase agreement (5 free payments and 0.9% interest) for the LT. FYI the LT was the bike that got me in the dealers shop in the first place. The Silver CLC blocked the doorway and shouted "Buy me, Buy me, so loud that I was distracted from the original intent. the cleaning dude called the owner and got permission to let me in till the owner arrived (they were closed). And the rest is history.
Loved the attention the bike got at almost every stop and location. Bike pulled in any gear and the Russell Seat that was 4 days installed B4 Crash, made the bike almost perfect and were there not a small sour taste for the 04 side stand issue, I would most likely still have one in my yard.
Enjoy a great bike
