    Ellen,
    I think I may have an extra oil filter wrench in my garage if you're interested. That's about all the service I know how to do but changing your own oil can save you some bucks.
    I'm just straight west of you in Oconomowoc.

    Welcome to the madness we call the BMW family. If you need some help, Sharon knows where to find me. I'd be happy to show you around your bike, maybe get your hands just a little dirty while learning about it.

    Hi Sharon,

    Yep, I know where Oconomowoc is. I'm just 2 miles east of the Waukesha County line (just off of '894), and you're close to the Jefferson County Line side of the county. Thanks for the offer. I have about 2500 miles to go yet, before that ritual needs to be done. Hopefully I can get it in before it gets TOO COLD! It's supposed to hit the high 40s tonight.

    Daddy showed his youngest daughter how to use tools (he was a maintenance man, and also occasionally helped my uncles with their cycles), but I'm never averse to help with servicing. Not all bikes are the same. I see you're in Manitowoc. Manitowoc is my hometown. I moved to my present location for a better job opportunity, several years ago. The rest of the family still lives up in your neck of the woods.
