Hello Jeff, greetings from the warmer part of this great country.
To answer your first question, the highest mileage LT that I know is Don Arthurs bike,
which did have over 300K on it before his accident
But I think that you, sir
probably have the record for the most miles on an 05
What I think is really "cool" about that is that you're not "out there" trying to break any records just to satisfy your ego but instead are riding just for the love of riding.
Also your "Minpin" is the only dog I've ever heard of that has "ridden" over 100,000 miles,
I think BMW needs to create a "special" collar commemorating that.
I thoroughly enjoyed viewing all of your pictures,
sent the link to my brother and some friends and saved it to "my favorites"
I too have "snapped" some of those same photo's but "your's' somehow look a lot better,
but then my cheap digital camera is only a 2 MP,
The one feature I do like about "digital" is that the pictures don't cost anything once you've bought the camera and chip for it.
My best wishes to you and Shannon, hope to see you again "on the road"
