Miss your bike at work?

Find yourself sitting at work, wishing you were out on your LT?
Well as little as I work, I still get that feeling, so I came up with the
"Pro Poser Mod"
ain't nothing but an LT seat on adjustable office chair base.
I can work, paint or be on the computer from it
Not sold in stores, YMMV
Anyone know where I can buy 4' BMW stickers? Think I'll put some on a trailer and pull my bike to events on it!

If I miss it while at work, I walk out to the parking deck and say hi!

That looks nice
Do you have any of your art displayed on the web?
Any shows coming up?

Just tattoo stuff www.bodyworkstattoos.com
I have been toying with the idea of starting an art gallery on E-bay. I have sold a few privately and done a couple commission pieces.
Problem being everytime I sell some, it depletes the stock for a gallery show.

Is the seat in the high or low position? Does the backrest still work with the seat in this configuration? As someone else asked, is the seat heated? Details man, details!!!

I have been driving mine to work every day since I bought it (about 6 months ago). Fortunately my office has windows that look out over the parking lot! I confess I must take a look at least a half dozen times during the day and there she sits just waiting for the drive home!

The seat now has just over 3" of hydrulic adjustment up or down.
I don't use a backrest on the bike much (I have one) one could be installed.
The building is heated so no need for the hot seat.

Does it have a high Center of Gravity?
Have you tipped it over yet?
Since the chair is likely hydraulic, have you done the "drill out" fix yet?

My dog is very selective where he will pee, yet he will poop anywhere. In that regard; we couldn’t be more different.

Yes, I miss my bike at work, so I have a handful of pics of it in my laptop and use them as wallpaper on a rotation basis.

Not sure about how to do all that, but this

Re: Miss your bike at work?

Great idea. Now if it only had pegs, a backrest, and a few cool farkles...I think I'm going to have to build one.

Re: Miss your bike at work?

The ingenuity, irreverence, mechanical aptitude, and humor of the BMW community never ceases to amaze me.

Now I just need to see if I can get my LT through the front door and down the hall to my office.....let the one-upmanship begin!

Don't be afraid to say what you feel, as those that matter DOnt mind and those that mind Dont matter.
