Re: I've got problems and am on the road
Had a morning full of great chatting and free coffee at Lone Star BMW, with Ron and Delores. Got to talk about the good time memories over the last 9 years or so that we've known each other. Ron (and Delores) have more LT miles of smiles, than me on ole Toad. They've broken the 200K threshold, using two LTs while ole Toad is just showing 128K! Anyway, we remembered a lot of those miles, and the many RTEs we used to share in the South Central region.
Back to topic - Ron got to Lone Star around 0830, and although they don't really open until 0930, the service department does open up for appointment holders, so he wuz inside to turn over the bike to them. I pulled up shortly after that, and we all descended on the coffee machine!! After a few hours, Mike Goff (lead tech) dropped by to say that he hadn't found the source of the problem yet, butt had eliminated many of the possibilities. Wuz getting ready to explore deeper, with an eye on possible injector behavior. Ron's GS911 had shown no faults when he used it in GA, and apparently no faults were showing up at Lone Star, which made tracing possible gremlin/culprits an orderly, but time consuming, process.
I headed back to Boerne around 2:00, without hearing if the problem had been found. I imagine Ron and Delores were either gonna stay the nite in Austin, if there wuz the later possibility that Mike found the gremlin and could get it fixed by Wednesday - otherwise, they may opt to go home while Mike continues wrenching, and then come back to Lone Star at a later date to pick up the bike. Since Ron doesn't carry a cell phone, I won't know anything until he posts to this thead, with a wrap up post.
And BTW - we did end up at Chuey's for lunch, and my wallet still has all the moths intact!!
Thanks guys - truly enjoyed the time with y'all. Look forward to doing it again in the near future, butt without any wrenching session!
