Re: Well I finally did it!!

Dave I am glad you made the move to the 1600GTL so that means I might be trailing behind a little with my LT

Re: Well I finally did it!!

Congrats Dave. Tom is right; the only question at the CCR was when.

More importantly, how is the hand?

Hope to get up to your area for a Sleeping Bear Riders event soon.

Congrats Dave, your gonna love it. Maybe an early trip to ride with your Tejas brethren would be just the thing. We'll have room at Hooters in Waco on New Years day. Ozarks or a spring training K16 meet up!

Congrats on the new bike. I just went through your town on my way to Harbor Springs, wife is from Michigan. Your right the winter starts early there. We went skiing at Nubs Knob the day before T-giving. You'll just have to convert the bike into a snow machine until warmer weather. Stay warm

There is a BMW rally in Florida at Camp Blanding on Jan. 16th to 18th. You have to pre-register to attend. Several of our club members go each year.

Are those BMW arm rests, and are they the same as the GTL Exclusive? Nice.

Look what showed up in my driveway today! This one's the GT with all the gear, because I lean a little more toward sport than touring. I wonder if they are twins? We should check their birth certificates and find out.

Best of luck to you on your new ride!

Best,

Nope! See that truck and trailer. I get to go through the delicious experience of farkling the crap out of my new ride, and the moment it's done, the wife and I will head south with the bike loaded in the rig until we reach warm weather. Doesn't really matter where we stop, just that we are not going to allow winter to determine whether we ride. Get a hotel and ride till you drop. . . . .that's my new motto for 2015!

You in?. . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
