    Our annual Moose Dodge ride is named in honour of the woman on the right. A few years ago she hit a 600lb moose calf near Chapleau Ontario while riding her husband's R1100T. Her husband was riding behind her on her R100GS/PD (now mine). Apparently, her right cyl head clipped the moose's head, knocking it out and it lay on the road and bled to death. She retained control of her bike and only suffered a bruised ankle. No foolin. :eek1

    The O.P.P. who filed the report and the M.O.T. road crew that came to collect the carcass couldn't believe it either. :huh

    I'll throw this one up of my 1150 RS in downtown Old Savannah from several years ago. A great 3,500 mile solo trip that my former company paid for for the most part. While I'm not too anti-social, there is something about taking a long solo trip that really brings back to me the reason I really like biking...the freedom to stop whenever, do wahtever, whenever you want. A great break to hectic business schedule. I sold that bike a year ago and really do miss it. Having an 1100 RT and an 1150 RS was somehow a little redundant so I decided one would go and the RS was it. Now it's just the RT and the GSPD, which compliment each other pretty well. BUt there is a lust growing to own an S, a bike I almost bought when I got the RS.....and the thing is, they are a bargain, and other than a 916, I think they are / were about the best looking bike ever made. Could be trouble.

    Last Thanksgiving we had a perfect weekend of fall riding weather and some of us took full advantage with a trip around the Algonquin Park region. This is a sunset view, looking east away from the sun, of Oxtongue Lake.

    Holy crap. I hope that's just the picture cause I've never seen it before.
    That could really ruin my relationship with this bike which has been rather on the rocks until just recently.

    I'll check and report back. GAH! :becca

    I see you've got one of those Motorrad Elektric Heads UP Voltage indicators. The LED on mine broke off at the Sandblast. Which makes all that wiring so must Ballast now. Maybe I can talk to Rick about getting a new LED? I bet they have a Radio Shack #.

    Mr Cpatstone, I fell for it hook, line, and sinker.
    You caused me about an hours worth of indigestion.

    I'll forgive you for a case of this:
