    Who is going to the Blackhawk rally? I have never been - figured it would be a good day trip. http://www.blackhawkbmwclub.org/expo.html

    Plus - who is in for the National? I will probably camp so I can drink in peace.

    Uncut -

    You might want to consider SS brained brake lines since you need to make a change. Improved the feel on my K.

    BTW - 37 degrees and pouring rain is a great way to stress test your gear! Marcin and I cut our ride to only 2 hours this morning. Brrrrrrrrrr.

    I did order SS for the side that is leaking. I have been happy with the brakes so far but I figured why spend the same on a regular line

    A Bimmer.. towing a Beemer.

    Thanks to Marcin for helping me out.

    I'm adding a few things for my May trip to Alaska. 55W Hella Fogs, GPS wired in, new Wolfman tankbag, Grand Touring luggage, Radar detector wired in, heated gear connections, headlamp protector, oil cooler protector, skid plate....

    12,000 miles in 22 days if everything goes according to plan.

    Good Ride Wishes go out to you. I hope you're waiting for warmer weather!

    Nice favorite road ride addition to the Chicago Region newsletter, Brian (that definitely wasn't you in the picture)...and to OU812 (Steve), too!

    That would have been Marcin -

    But I wasn't clear in my note to Joe.

    who else is going to the Chicago BMW meeting this evening? I do need to know how to repair a tire on the side of the road......

    And Susan, I'm leaving for the Arctic in late May - who knows what kind of weather lies ahead.

    Hope for the best...... and prepare for the worst!

    I'm sure there will be a good turnout for the meeting tonight. This is an excellent opportunity to practice on someone else's tires!

    See you there!
