    Here are a couple of jelly fish pix that your daughter might

    Hi,

    I started riding dirt bikes in junior high school although my parents, rest their soul never new it. Bought my first street motorcycle a Kawasaki 200 in 1983 which my first wife was never thrilled with so to keep the peace I reluctantly sold it two years later. Fast forward to 1997 a renewed life and a wonderful new wife who after numerous times hearing me ogle over various motorcycles, said "why don't you just buy the damn thing". So I purchased a Kawasaki 750 Vulcan and took the MSF course and with my wife's interest in riding with me I moved up to Kawasaki Nomad on which we traveled from Indiana to Arizona and through Colorado. After a horrendous accident where we were rear ended at a traffic light, I purchased my first BMW a 99 K1200LT. I had longed for a BMW since high school and a dream came finally came true. We logged many wonderful miles together and I still more on the LT. Since and concurrently I have also owned a 00 R1100S, F650 Dakar, F650 CS and now a 04 R1100GS.

    The GS has been on my radar screen since moving to Arizona and wanting to explore the numerous backroads and fire roads in Arizona as well as through out the west. With a daughter in college I have scaled back now to just the GS which so far has been a wonderful companion. If you can only have one motorcycle this machine is it, a sport touring bike that can travel off the beaten path, the Swiss Army Knife of motorcycles.

    Okay, right after all the Californy guys the NEXT group of people I don't like are all the desert rats out there in Arizona. I would never want to live there - and ride all year long. No way.

    Dear Bruce, You should have gotten rid of your first wife instead of your bike. Glad you eventually found a good woman. As for your closing salutation 'regards, ride safe' , My motto is 'Drive fast, take chances, and talk back to the cops' Living by this code has worked for me surprizingly well.

    Hi Julie,

    Yeah when I got the bike or me line, I should have said bye! Oh well hindsight is 20/20, but have not wasted any time making up for lost time. I like your motto, but suspect it will work better for you than me with regards to the cops.

    Gee Stace,

    You didn't always seem so enamored with the bike.

    I bet this brings back some memories...

    Cool picture Rob! What's the story it tells?

    Despite the fact that all but one of the ten or eleven vehicles I've owned have been used purchases, it feels weird seeing a shot from my new toy's past (but I like it- got any more?).

    Took a nice pleasant afternoon ride today and the bike says HI too Stacey !

    P.S. That oil leak was dispatched with a new O-ring and shim.
