    Smile I scratched a 30 year itch...

    Just bought a 2010 R1200R from Schlossman's in Milwaukee. A great experience. Can't wait to get it out on the road!

    You are sure sporting a fantastic grin! I too have been giving that model sidelong glances in the showroom lately. Shhhhhh, don't mention that to my RT.

    Yeah I noticed that, too.
    Two requests, though.

    Fill out your profile (so we know a little more about you, as little or as much as you like, no big deal).
    And get some coverage for those ankles, K?

    Tom, that's a great bike. It should completely take care of that itch. Ride safe. If you're just getting into, or back into, riding, go take a rider safety course.

    There are two roads in life; the twisty one is vastly more fun.

    Don't see a ring on that left hand or in his nose.

    I trust you have a full face helmet or you will be pickin' bugs out of your teeth cuz that smile will last awhile.

    Goose Run

    You should check out the Goose Run in Beaver Dam on Sunday. I am sure the BMW dealer has a group going.

    Nice bike. You have some great places in Wi. to ride. My son lives in Appleton and I envy all the fun riding you have up there.

    I came through there a day or so before you got the bike (I think) when it was in the show room. I sat on it an lusted over it.

    Have fun.
