The wisdom of Dick ...

has been spread to the Cycle World community. I'm not a regular subscriber to CW, but get it 'cause I bought something, somewhere and started getting the magazine. Having just started looking through it (after reading through the latest issues of BMW ON and Airmail), I noticed on page 79 that DIck Largen from Boerne TX (our BMWLT's very own) has a K1200LT fluid changing tip written up there! How cool and congrats Dick!

I chose to ignore the Walmart greeter comment.

Have fun,
Jer

Hey, Jerry - thanks for the nice words (and to Wolfgang too, for the mention). I gotta tell y'all tho - I tried to give credit for the puppy training pad tip to my friend across town, Dave Moore, who IIRC, originally brought the idea to one of local tech sessions. Didn't make it in the piece, so apologies to Davey for thunder stealin'! BTW, I kinda overlooked the greeter thang too!

Re: The wisdom of Dick ...

Howdy, Folks.

Been thinkin' on this wisdom of Dick thang. I've had the pleasure of bein' around Dick a fair bit. And every time I clue him in on an idea or three of mine, I don't get much wisdom, rather, Dick falls on the floor and laughs too hard to say much.

That's cuz Lynn already clued me in 'fore you got here!!!

Hey, btw - shouldn't that 'kicker' read "Barn-Stormin'" instead of "Brain Stormin'"?? I mean, if you've put that Star Wars machine together that you bought last time you were in my 'hood, I'd make bet you got at least barn roof heighth on the first lift off!!
