    Hair

    I needed to make a cellphone call, but there was no reception in the valley, so I rode to the top of a nearby mountain on dirt without gear (i.e., no helmet) from the campsite. As I returned, the COG guys were laughing and pointing at me, and made me stop for photos. Turned out it was the hair.

    Fred's Woody Woodpecker hair style is one of the best arguments I've seen in favor of helmet laws.

    May a horny hungry woodpecker find your helmet more attractive than an elm.

    I don't know Tweets, while I'm sorry for you, I really like my ST (Thank you Kbasa, for the great review and suggestion). Break your melancholy, get the beasty fixed and get riding! There has to be a fix, my guys at Cycle Werks really seem to know what they are doing. It's electrical, this has to be a problem with a solution. If you love the bike like I believe you do, hang in there and hunt the solution, I'd be willing to assist. Or jump the lemon law if applicable and get something else. The point is I guess, I feel for you and the thing that bugs me most is you can't ride.
    *Shooting you the good vibes*
    Cheer up!

    Thanks, Wezul. The techs have been up, down, time and again, and just can't seem to eradicate the e-gremlin. Each time something seems fixed, another manifestation arises, making the bike a confirmed lemon (on 10/9 it is official).

    Pursuant to a recent request, I have sent BMW NA my purchase contract and other documents for costs, and I am awaiting a buy-back determination offer. But they don't move fast.

    Until then, nada, but I cannot see an ST in my future because 1) ergos are not there for my body, arm and leg sizes, and 2) the lower fairing raises enough rider heat issues, I'd lose a month or 2 of riding each year here in the WARM Phoenix area. We just broke summer heat and now we are seeing 80-90 degree highs. Right now @ 9:30 MST we are 73 after some drizzle/rain. I WANT TO RIDE but no bike.

    I see a another bike soon, but soon may still be a month out.

    P.S. Don't feel to sorry. On 10/13, I fly to Puerto Vallarta to meet a group, for riding into Guadalajara for the XII International BMW MC Rally. We do 2 days in GDL (one of which is train/bus travel to where Tequila is made), and then ride through the jungle back to PV for sun, beach, and bar-b-que. A R12GS as the grand prize, will be given away Saturday. Sunday I fly home. My buddies are riding 10/10 from here, we meet 10/13, but I lose the 2 days of all day riding back home.

    Brand New 09

    Hello all...

    Here is a pic of my brand new 09 that I picked up yesterday at Hermy's. How about the new blue color. It was a sweet ride home to State College!

    "son" I would love to have an F800ST or the GS. But I don't I got another well crafted bike the versys. But I was thinking it would be neat to see the versys and a gs go head to head. I mean all specs aside just on the road fun.

    Fred,

    I think I've seen you post over on the R1200R forum. I have an R1200R, and now have a F800GS on order. Are you keeping both? How do you like the 800, and finally, what kind of engine crash bar is that on your bike?
