Gerhard, Thanks for your concern.
Roger, Right you are!
David, Don't think I wasn't thinking of you once or twice out there. Of course I wasn't going to say a word about it till it was done...hey who has time to sit at a computer when doing one of those. BUTT now I have all this time on my hands.
Grif, I haven't hugged you lately so I know why it wasn't raining to beat the band.
Jeff, Funny you should say that I need a new GT. That was the *first* voice I head in my head while standing in the fog and the rain at 5AM, and the first words to my dealer where "when can I test ride the new GT!" Seems that they don't have one, and the ones that they got are sold. What surprised me is they don't think they will have a demo bike, yet they promised to call when they get one in.
Brian, W hat have you been doing hanging around the parts department? Hope all is well.
Well, the service department just called and I need a new ring bearing. Since I did this dance last year and the part has a 2 year warranty on it, it will all be covered by BMWNA. My sister took me to lunch to console me and said that there is a reason that this happened. As I told Keith the owner of Ride West: No one was hurt during the filming of this insanity.
I'm still trying to figure out the reason.
