A Fond Fairwell....

I watched the new owner of my 2002 LT leave my driveway this evening. I hope he enjoys it as much as I did. I am missing the big old thing but my knees and hips just are not what they used to be and I found myself riding less and less. To tell the truth, I also feel it is just getting too dangerous out there for me. In this beautiful part of north central Maryland, there used to be little or no traffic but development brought traffic and with it, lousy drivers. I have had several close calls in recent months so I am taking the fall and winter off and I will be looking at a F800GS when they come out in the spring of '08.

I appreciate all the knowledge I have gained from all of you and the friends I have made both in person and on this forum. May you be blessed and kept safe. I will be stopping by now and then just to see what's going on.

Don't be a stranger! It's sure not fun when you are hanging on too tight and you don't feel safe. Just as you'll know when it's time to start again.

Take care!

As the new owner of Daves bike please allow me to say that Dave was a pleasure to deal with and a real gentleman during this long distance transaction.

Rest assured the bike has a good home and I'll be using the forums here to help
with maintenance and technicals.
