Impromptue RTE

Yesterday Howard and I met at Middendorf's in Manchac,LA. We sat out on the deck and enjoyed thin fried catfish. We caught up on time since CCR at Tan-tar-a in Missouri. We then rode to Cycle Gear in Baton Rouge, We rode over to the BMW dealer, I had the privilege to test ride a K1600GT. Interesting ride, glad MissE was not with us, or we would have driven it home, she so misses the LT. Was a great day, Thanks Howard!

Re: Impromptue RTE

Floyd, it was great to see you after 6 (?) years and catch up with you. Thanks for showing me the Cycle Gear shop.

At the BMW shop I was talking with the service manager about a 12K service that my LT is due for, I turn around and you're signing a demo form for a K1600GTL. Nice. Went outside and snapped a quick photo but couldn't get you in the shot. I say take your wife back there and do the two-up test ride and when she says how much she likes it, you're good to go.

At Middendorf's:

Re: Impromptue RTE

Or you can come to a tech session in Houston and do your own 12k service.

I'll watch for a session to be posted. I can do an engine oil and FD gear oil change. For the valve check and transmission (?) oil change I'll be taking directions, and/or watching.

Maybe replace my front tire, too!
