    6-10" incoming tonight. Sigh. I feel like reassembling the bike and starting to ride South - fast.

    Oh and Uncut, Martin seems to have a K75 to sell? That's a very fine road bike!

    Of course that means he'll be temporarily without a BMW , I may have to lend him some BMW roundels for his rice grinder.
    I know - but I need to hold off until the Fall. I need to plant the seed with my wife - let it wait six months and then buy. Its how it works in my house

    Oh, we can help there -

    Safety, ride height, vibration, braking, cornering - and we do have you lined up a several long road trips this spring and summer.

    Just worried about your safety!

    You're welcome to come along. Since, we may not meet as a group until our first ride in May, you you're welcome to hop along for any of our side trips that we post. I know Martin has some rides for April... stay tuned

    Do I hear just a hint of sarcasm?

    Nope -

    You'd smoke me on anything that resembled a 'Adventure Rider' type of road - dirt, gravel, you name it ..... I'd struggle.

    On the other hand - both of us will have a hard time keeping up with Martin - so never mind. Keep the 650 and we'll hang back together and hope we eventually catch him. On paved roads only please.

    Musta killed him to be following me last January as I futzed along at somewhere near the legal limit.

    And you're selling the K75, too?
    Man, some changes going on, eh?

    Hey Martin, if I may be so bold, what made you decide to go VStrom?
    I do like the bike but you seem like a street guy to me.

    You always got something in the works, huh?
    I can understand the need for room, 3 bikes in the garage year 'round, 4 in summer so it's a little tight with the car, too.
    Let us know when you take delivery on the VStrom and let's see some more pictures then, ok?

    Dude -

    Slow down. Finish the K75 - execute one of your wonderful paint jobs with the OE color and take the smoothest bike ever made for a ride.

    Can't imagine why you prefer K's, Brian.
    Hey, maybe you should snap Martin's K75 up. I'll bet your honey would love that!
