    Birthday Gift

    I turned 65 today, 02/06/13, and my wife gave me a R1200RT 90th Anniversary Edition Bike. What a woman!

    No pixs yet, it's still on some cargo ship and lands in NY on the 18 and down to Lone Star BMW in Austin about a week later; hopefully in time for my ride to Big Bend National Park on March 1st!

    and Congratulations! You are one lucky man. I also hope the bike gets to you in time for your planned ride, if not there will be others I am sure

    Happy 65th

    That is a great gift for a birthday, enjoy. I can't remember what I got for my 65th but It wasn't a motorcycle; I'd remember that.

    My birthday is in a month. What's she getting me?

    An excellent present - unless the BMW you told her you wanted was an M6.

    Congratulations! The 90th anniversary bikes are great looking and that Camhead RT will compliment your Airhead nicely. Did she happen to get you a passenger backrest with it?

    Happy Birthday!

    Chances are you will love your RT as much as I love mine. My blog has some info on Peg Lowering Kit installation, if that might be of interest.
