great questions.. I'll find out tonight. If anyone is up for dinner tonight somewhere down in SLC or Murray/Sandy feel free to hit me up. There is a killer, super cheap Indian place around 8000 south and 1300 east I was thinking of...

Get yourself one of these and it will save you half a day:

I have one installed and you are welcome to look it over. You know longer will have to pull the panels to do an oil change.

Supposedly he traded in 2 950s and a 1200 for a new 800GS.

The guy must be an idiot.

Supposedly guy who traded it in was an older guy and just wanted something moree street oriented. Traded in the two 950s and an 1150. Go figure. There are little dings on the plate, looks like it had some dirt road duty but that's about it.

Troy from BMW seems like a pretty good guy / straight shooter...

Went down and test rode it last night. In love / it would be perfect. There is only one hickup. My wife is pretty adamantly opposed right now. Normally I don't let things like this have much of an impact (just buy what I want) but she is pretty strongly opinionated on it and pretty adament that I don't get it. with luck I can talk her into it and that it hangs around at the dealer for another day or two. It would literally be perfect. Only thing visibly wrong with it is has a bad headset bearing, which is a pretty easy fix that I've done before. In their eyes it is what it is, a nice lightly beat up 950, which again, is perfect. Other than that rides pretty well, doesn't appear to be burning oil etc. Nicely farkled too, which is a plus...

Based on what he bought in the first place, I would have to agree.

Done.

Much like dieselhead there may be a marital influence I had not planned on.
