    i currently own an r1100gs--my third one--and have owned an r1150gsa in the past i just paid a deposit on an r1200gsa that i will take delivery of in a few days. after reading the current threads on the r1200gsa, i realized that there isn't a starbucks within a hundred miles of where i live in hattiesburg, ms :huh. is this gonna work out??:D

    You didn't make a mistake. Riding four hours to get a cup of coffee fits in well with the spirit of things!:ricky

    After the first "super slab" run to Starbutts buy the over priced freeze dry version of the "gag me" version of your choice and you won't have to return. I'm good my wife keeps them close at hand for those days when I'm hung and I can't ride safely.

    There's a Krispy Kreme shop within walking distance.

    I hope you still have one of the old oilheads...that 1200 is gonna quit on you.

    If you wait a few days there will be a Starbucks near you.

    Don't panic, crapper: there's still the Burger King on Hardy Street you frequented as an undergraduate, and an associated, inexhaustable supply of Double Cheese Whoppers with bacon. You're gonna be OK.
