Wink Check Out My New Gear

I was working on a few bikes today and did a little test ride on a LT up & down my dead end street. You won't see me sitting on a bike like this very often.

We got a brake & clutch flush done & my buddy Keith bought a new 2012 R1200RT & we installed his Free GPS that came with the new bike. Keith leaves tomorrow for the BMWMOA Rally.

Nice gear Dave!! I see Lee is just standing around with his hands in his pockets, as usual.

What is the Bushtec doing up in the loft?

I am heading out on Wednesday, going to meet some friends in Perryville, MO and ride around the Ozarks and head up to the MOA rally Friday morning.

That's where I keep the Bushtec plus it blew the left side shock & I haven't got around to fixing it yet.

Several of our local BMW club members are going to the rally. Enjoy your ride & the rally John.

Re: Check Out My New Gear

10-4 on the gear comment, Dave. You've always been one of the most consistently geared-up riders I've seen, always incorporating hi-viz. When you were here last summer I was impressed that you took the time to put on a chest protector (kevlar vest, maybe?).

Very seldom do I go anywhere without full protection. I do wear a 26 to 78 layer kevlar vest 99% of the time I ride.

That explains why the lines in your yard aren't straight! My dad was BIG on having clean, straight lines!
