    Well, after many trips to Birmingham to the BMW shop, it looks as though I may get my bike back this Saturday! :clap

    Rear Swing arm replaced. When it broke, it damaged the final drive so it's been rebuilt. the clutch master cylinder assembly was a surprisingly high expense. replaced mirrors, windshield and hardware, blinker, mirrors, valve cover engine guards, left wind deflector, fog lights, brake master cylinder cap, and several other things I'm forgetting. I also managed after 7 hours with a couple hammers, to re-square my panniers enough to use. I also had to work to fix my bent crash bars and pannier racks. I also had them put my 60% Tourance in place of my old, badly scalloped TKC80 so I can feel if the handling isn't right.

    They told me his goal is to finish the rebuild by Thursday so they can each test ride it and if anything else needs fixed, they have time to order those parts in time for my to still pick it up Saturday. It may cost me this years Christmas bonus, and it will count as my Christmas, Birthday and Anniversary but at least it turned out to be repairable. :D

    So, good news so far. May it continue without any surprises!

    Yep! No frame damage and the engine was always fine. I cranked it the day after the wreck and it ran perfectly. Never lost any fluids, thanks to the crash bars absorbing the hits.

    That's what I thought. I like the way they cut the fries seconds before they cook them also.

    Ok well, I got to meet a few of you guys a couple Saturday's ago down at the gas station where 27 and 18 meet. Hint..i was the guy on the Harley :-) . After meeting everyone and talking with my friend Larry, I must have done something right because my wife ( who probably just got tired of me talking about how fun it would have been if I could have rode along ) decided to suprise me for my 40th birthday / 20 year anniversary / Christmas for two years and let me get a small dual sport bike. I am supposed to go tomorrow down to Hattisburg and pick up a TW200. It's not quite the Triumph Tiger I really wanted but hey...I'm not going to complain. So hopefully I'll get to ride with you guys soon. It's going to be the first dual sport bike I've ever ridden so I'm hoping to learn a few things. Catch you all later,

    Lance ( Aka Uwdlk2no ).

    Have you ridden a TW200? If I remember correctly, you are not a small person. It would be fine for a few miles here and there but not as a primary bike. But hey, nobody asked my opinion so I will just say congratulations and good luck with it.:thumb
