So long friends, my time here is over.

I've really enjoyed being a part of this community over the last decade, and I've had a lot of fun, meeting and riding with members here who became friends, and even close friends.

I've also greatly enjoyed the RTEs, the events at the Iron Horse in NC. and the CCRs I've attended and worked.

Those who know me will know how to contact me, and I them.

So, ride safe and often. I'll wave as we pass on the open roads.

Re: So long friends, my time here is over.

Dave, I've always enjoyed reading your posts and blog and look forward to learning all about your new and as of yet undecided endeavors. Don't be a stranger and please pop up every now and then. Change can be good and I know that you will find what you are looking for.

Through this forum, you were one of my first K1200LT contacts and you really did help me to get greater pleasure out of the bike.

BMW should have been subsidizing your efforts!

See you soon on the next ride.
