I learned today that we have a REAL Strong Arm amongst our rag tag lunch time group. The strong arm dude no doubt will be caging it on Wednesday for lunch.

We've got a new GS rider here at work, he bought the yellow 1200GS at Capitol BMW last weekend. Y'all doing lunch tomorrow?

I dumped mine in some mud last week, broke my left mirror and turn signal lens. Still have sticks and brush hanging out, makes me think I actually used the thing. Maybe I'll stuff some more in there when these fall out.

Kewl... so are you both coming to lunch? I know I will be there. I can bring some twigs and stuff from the woods at home to better decorate both the bikes. LOL

Yeah, we'll be there at noon. See whoever makes it. My wife was concerned when she could smell the burning brush in my bike when I pulled into the garage. I was smiling ear to ear until I found out a new mirror is > $70.

a broken Mirror, $70+

A dealer with a happy smile (50 % markup)

A rider with an ear to ear smile and a broken mirror, Priceless

Cyall then

Hello everyone,
I'm the newb that rcrampton was referring to. I'm looking forward to meeting everyone tomorrow and learning from you guys. I've been trying to figure out what gear to buy so maybe I'll be able to save a little money and just buy the right gear the first time after picking your brains. Looking forward to it,

Josh

I'm the only one at the counter today, so while I may be able to run up and pick up some food to go, I won't be able to sit and chat. :(

It's a got Good News / Bad News kinda day.

The Bad News first - I can't make it to lunch today, the boss scheduled a meeting at 11:30, and It will most likely last well past noon.

The Good News - My Bike is back! or it will be after I go get it from the Maharishi tonight after work.
