Sorry that I missed you all on Saturday. We "had" to do a Breast Cancer Research charity ride that was raffled off a couple of months ago. Took the five female raffle winners for a "ride along" with the Brother Speed Motorcycle Club. A before and after Lunch ride just up the gorge with lunch at the Speed's clubhouse. Good time had by all. As it was a "Harley Only" ride, I borrowed one from a friend. What a vivid reminder of how technically superior the Beemers are in every way (especially brakes) to the Milwaukie product!
We went to the Open House today. Visited with lots of folks and took a demo ride on the 800ST as it was the only one that I had not already ridden. Nice bike and surprisingly comfortable and reasonable wind protection. Would be a great around town commuter bike and fun in the twisties. A fun day and a great facility that certainly promises to be an asset to us Portland Bemmerphiles. I understand that it cost the dealer $25K to have the Demo truck here for two days. WOW! Scott has made a huge investment and commitment. The dealership is less than five minutes from my house. That said, as soon as our house sells we will be moving to Vancouver and be about 5 minutes from PMC. Go figure...
