My baby is finally home

All the paperwork for the bike was completed on Friday, but it started raining before I left the dealership. They had also ordered new grips for the bike, and they came in yesterday as well. Therefore I chose to leave the bike at the dealer overnight.

It is a "99 with 74k. runs great.

Rode her home today. She is a real sweet machine. I only got to put about 100 miles on her tonight. Hopefully we can get to know each other a bit more tomorrow.

I will be pulling my hair out for a while until I get the electronics all figured out.

I am happy!

Re: My baby is finally home

Congrats on the bike! Did it come with the owner's manuals? There is one for the radio system. That'll help with the stingray buttonology.

Ride safe,

Re: My baby is finally home

Welcome to the world of all things BMW. Like any relationship, there are times of distrust, times of fun, times of disappointment and times of total ecstasy, but through it all, the love never leaves. Every time I mount the girl and grab her controls, we both know it's gonna be a great ride! Enjoy.

Life control your reaction.
