Talking A Disturbance in the Pac NW Force?

Rumors have started up in this corner of the world that there may be a disturbance in the Ridgefield part of WA. Any truth to it?

Inquiring minds want to know!

Well, caught me John. I'm off to Denver Friday to pick up an 09 K1300 GT from none other than Randy P. Will be back middle/late next week. My son lives there so it will also be a good time for some family visiting as well as time to get the new girl ready for the return ride. I've been pulling stuff off the LT to take along - where did all that stuff go? Gotta warm her up for VT! Let's christen her when I get back with some chowder.

Well don't count on me to be helping you do those valves Denny! Of course, as I understand it, they will tell you when they need adjusting? I guess Brian can fill ya in on that engine.

I'm sure you did get a plum of a Bike though, knowing how Randy would have been a stickler for the maintenance being up to speed!

I knew that, John and am worried! I figure I'll just ride it until the valves need checking and buy something else -- NOT! I did feel good buying from Randy as he is on top of everything.

Re: A Disturbance in the Pac NW Force?

Congrats Denny,

How many miles are on the GT,can't imagine to many since it's a 09 but then again if Randy is like Ken then it could be lots. Boy if you and Brian get together and ride talk about hell on wheels that is if Brian is even riding this year. Ride safe and look forward to seeing your new baby soon.

Thanks, Jeff. You may well see me down your way next winter, if this rain season is any indication of things to come. Details later as I leave at 6:15 AM in the morning.
