Spring Has Sprung & LT Sighting

Holy cow. Give us a 70-degree day and all the bikes come out of the woodwork. What a nice day in central Ohio!

On the way through Lancaster today at about 5:45 PM northbound on US 33 (Memorial Drive) I saw a couple on a dark-colored LT (no gear, no helmets ), followed right behind by a silver K1200GT. Nice to see some beemers in my neck of the woods.

Slim, I've seen it done but I wouldn't do it (that's just me). I don't understand all the parts and pieces, why they do what they do, and how to do it. Sounds like we ought to have a Tech Session. Hmmm.... a Spring Tech Session. Let me think about that.
