  6. Hi Raftnn!

    Yep, that's the feeling!

    We used to laugh when he still had the Harley. People would usually gab about one and completely ignore the other. We made a game of guessing what brand someone would be.

  9. Hi RichardM!

    You are correct. And he missed the radio and heated seat demo. But I still think he would have been in my camp. ;)

  11. Dear Beemer Girl:

    I know the satisfaction that must have coursed through your soul at that moment. I hear it a lot whenever my "K" bike is parked among the "R"s.

    Good luck with this exciting new machine. Bobskoot is green with "Beemer" envy.

    Fondest regards.

  12. Dear Riepe,

    Thanks for the note. Work has been kicking my A$$! We've been working on a software release. Had to work this past Sunday for deployment. Previous weekend was working at the Multiple Sclerosis ride. I haven't had much time to breath, and am way behind. :) Thanks for the nudge. It helps. I hope you are doing well!
