    Morning! Just back from a weekend hunting trip to TX. Two less Bambi's in the population. :clap

    Had the GS in last week for oil change and post trip look over. Got one of those calls I did not need. Rear U-Joint going bad at only 24,000 miles. :huh

    Apparently (and I knew this before) there was a lot of corrosion on the back of the drive shaft - looks like the original owner had ridden in salted snow roads. There is a small access port on the bottom about 2 inch big. Figure the salt got on it and started corrosion.

    BMW does not think those shafts should be rebuilt and its almost $800 for a new one. Did some research here and found a place in Green Bay, WI that can rebuild them and put in grease fittings for $290. Had Jerry send it there, hope it works out.

    Hopefully someone will buy Brenda's and keep it going. I have a feeling that corner is a million dollar piece of property so itll probably be gone soon. Too bad.

    That sucks. I put nearly 180K on my lebbenfiddy with nary a problem with the driveline. It was still running the original clutch when I centerpunched a bambi.

    I still think the 1100/1150 GS's are a tougher breed than the newer ones.

    Test rode the V7 Stone Guzzi. It had all day torque, very firm rear suspension and is beautiful to behold. Also had lunch at the Hard Rock Cafe, with my oldest daughter. I had a great day in Dallas looking at motorcycles, particularly spending all day with my daughter.
