Yosemite Ride

The wife and I just got back from about a 300 mile ride to Yosemite National Park. Man it was beautiful. We had a great (and uneventful) time with some friends. There has been several threads lately regarding people complaining about BMWs little quirks and expensive maintenance, but days like today remind me how great it is to be a BMW owner. I attached two pics, hope you enjoy! Dave

Looks like you two had fun, and that's what its all about Dave! But hey, whatever you do, don't lean back in that first pic! Looks like a dangerous pose to this old guy!

By the way, welcome to our Site where you can find anything you need to know about that great machine!

Re: O.C CA to Canada

....last week I went through Tioga Pass it it was hot but, as u say beautiful.... . already 3,000 miles into my trip, zig zaging all over CA, OR, WA, & currently at Cash Crick 250 Miles north of Vancouver the LT is performing just great, it's a truly the greatest tourer and though, it's not cheap to maintain, it sure pay off ..... I love it !!!!
