That was a great ride and nice pics. I'll be emulating it shortly. Am departing on Thursday for a BMW rally in Florida. The Winter Rally. Coolest rally in Florida. Literally. Looks like it will be in 20's departing here, high in the 50's there, with it dropping to the 20's at night. Glad I've got good camping gear. I tell you what, there is nothing like 10 hrs on the interstate in 20 and 30 degree temps. Even with electrics, it still sucks the life right out of you. Isn't that why we ride?

Dang Chuck, You're serious about saddle time on that bike! 32,000 + miles on that GS already?! I'm envious! Who's doing your shoulder?
Lemme check the Manual and I'll let you know.

Also, right after I pushed it in last evening a drop of "something" immediately appeared on the floor under the LH cover. Couldn't tell at the time if it was wash water, or the clutch fluid dribble you'd described. If it's clutch fluid I'd recommend replacing the slave cylinder seal since that really the only place it can be coming from ...assuming the banjo bolt washers are not leaking. Will have to pull that cover to really tell.

Eddy, what appeared on the floor last night must have been water. It had evaporated by this morning.

Each of your fork legs holds 524 ml, therefore you will need 2 qts.

Thanks, I did spray the bike down with bike wash and and then I rinsed her off really well at the carwash just before heading over to your place. If the drip continues, please let me know...

The really bad thing is that the one most affected is the one that runs the 'fridge, i.e., the one that keeps my beer cold. Fortunately, I noticed the problem and reset the GFI.

This is certainly unacceptable and will need to be fixed - somehow.
Guy, There is no NEC requirement for the refg to be on a GFI becuase of the compressor, that's the good news, bad news, run another circuit to the refg, now adult beverage is cold

Because of concrete floor, any dedicated receptacles (i.e., refg) doesn't have to be.

Have you seen this? http://bmwmcmag.com/

Sandy Cohen (of BMW ON fame) has launched a new BMW magazine. I have ordered all of the back issues and subscribed for two years. Being a bike magazine geek/collector, I like it very much as the pages are thick, the photos are quite nice, the spine is bound and they have so far been enjoyable to read.
Also, Touratech has a few copies of "Ten Years on Two Wheels" that they are selling for $48 each. A great price considering that people on Amazon and eBay are trying to get $100 (or much more) per book.

Get well

Hey Chuck, good luck with the shoulder surgery. Hope your wing is back to normal soon. Look forward to riding with you once you're well.

Eddie,
You'd better jump on that while you can. That is the MSRP for the book. They must has done a new printing.

I concur, I subscribe to this new Sandy Cohen published Magazine. I got the 2 yr subscription as well. Nice to have a BMW magazine that isn't club-related like the OTL and BMW ON.

JHVA,
Are you keeping your magazines? I need issues 2 and 3 if you have them.

Jeff, Yes, it is a third printing, hardback as well.
