update (not that any one asked)

I put out a feeler a cuople weeks ago, asking if any one could look at a few bikes for me down south. some folks were amazingly helpful and offered to look..... I have been rehabbing a broken vertebrea for 2 1/2 months and was expecting to get the ok to ride a few weeks back. alas, it was not to be, i've got at least three more weeks to mend and havent been able to test ride an LT just to make sure its the right bike for me. I also cant ride one home from wherever I end up buying it so I'm on hold a few more weeks. I'll prolly ask again if anyone is still in the mood to check things out for me. everyone is starting to ride and being sidelined is killing me. Thanks for listening. Al

Re: update (not that any one asked)

Damn man take your time they can't replace your back you screw it up bad enough and all you'll be riding is a chair. The bikes will still be there likely a bit cheaper get healed first.

Best wishes and a speedy full recovery.

The supreme irony of life is that hardly anyone gets out of it alive.

Talking Re: update (not that any one asked)

As someone who worked in X-ray and CT for almost 40 years, the advice to not rush it is right. Give your body time to heal and it should be good for a lot more years. With all the early adopters for the 1600's there will be a lot of just broken in bikes for you to choose from.

The smoooooooooth ride will be very much to your liking I am sure

Re: update (not that any one asked)

Not that I'll be geographically located where it will help, but if you need a set of eyes in NW NC, let me know. Be glad to help if possible. Not a lot of BMWs in our area. But there are some really nice guys here. A fellow member helped me find my LT when I was injured and shopping.

Keep on mending. PM me if you need my assistance. I only check thru here once or twice a week right now.

Suffer a little in the cold and wet, damp conditions over here!

I think I need to relocate to a much warmer climate and be a "Motor Officer" there !!!

Re: update (not that any one asked)

Hi Al,

I wish you fast recovery. I know what you're going through since I used to design those titanium screws, plates and rods for people with spine problems.
Anyway, my offer is still good for that bike in Palm Coast. I live in Daytona which is just 20 min way and I wouldn't mind test riding it for you. As a matter of fact, if you decide to come in person to see it, feel free to stay over. We got 2 spare rooms in our house.

Good luck,

Eno
