I'm All Disturbanced... and Stuff

A very special DHL truck dropped some stuff off for me recently.








Doing the final paperwork with BMW NA (more on that later), but it should be mine within a couple of days!

Now if I can just convince them to sell me a front wheel.

Nice wheels, David. Or should I say wheel? Too bad about the color though.

Are they gonna make you put it together yourself?

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...

Re: I'm All Disturbanced... and Stuff

If you haven't seen the red in person I think you will like it. It has some cool, almost prismatic effect to it, with some hints of gold and copper when the light hits it right. And lots of depth in the paint; they really did a top notch job on the depth in all of the colors this year.

Hey with 160 HP and no hesitation, who needs a front wheel!!

Very nice David! BMW NA is holding the front wheel as ransom until they get the paperwork back I suspect!

It's a beauty, David, but why didn't you just buy it off the dealer's floor?

Re: I'm All Disturbanced... and Stuff

I will be able to provide more details in a few days as I am finalizing the paperwork with corporate. After that I'll be able to provide more details on why I got a bike out of the crate vs. off the dealer showroom. But to answer the most important question asked -

Grif - Yes, they do make this bike for men, that's why you don't have one.

Man, you're just trying to get me in trouble. Let's see, bike is paid for, isn't broken, wore out and farkled.

There is no way, no how that I'm taking a 1300 for a test ride. Nope. Nada.

I'll staple my key to your hand at CCR. Let's see you avoid it then!

And yes, I am trying to get you into trouble. And the farkles are interchangeable, even the comfy custom seats.

With friends like this, who needs enemas!!

Actually, the demo I rode was red. Like most BMW colors, it looks much better in the sunlight than the showroom.
