    Just so you know, we almost met once.
    A while back I roll into the Bass Pro and I see this mangy Beemer with thift store luggage, lots of grime and an ADV sticker. It looked like it had lived "the good life"
    As I ambled inside, I expected to see someone that looked like they would be on that bike. I figured I would say "Hi" to this person and hear an interesting story or two...but I was at a Bass Pro. Everyone there looks like they could have been on that bike. :lol3
    As I walked outside, I noticed the mangy Beemer had departed.

    Some time later, I see that same Beemer in this thread. I was right about one thing, there were some interesting story's. :wink:

    i've been planning this trip out west, and tony aka fxrider71 told me he had just became a heidenua dealer a while back so i ordered a pair.

    of course they sent him the wrong set

    then it took me forever to get over there to get em

    he sat on em for what seemed like 3 or 4 months before i finally got caught up to head that way.

    my plan was to leave early tuesday morning (big trip wed) & be there when he opened, back at work by lunch, yea that didn't happen

    finally got on the rd around 7 smelled burning oil. stopped at a convence store added more & stayed on the phone with work for about 2 hrs

    take off down the rd with a blue cloud behind me seemed to be getting worse so i stopped at a tractor dealer. added more oil cranked it back up and oil was pouring out the oil filter.

    texted tony i was broke down he offered to come get me :thumb

    told him to let me see what i could do, got the leak stopped poured the other 1/2 a quart i had in. good to go. Go in tractor store to buy more oil, they're out.

    i'm on a roll :D

    Had threw my helmet onto sissy bar over fishing pole, when i put my helmet on i had a spinner stuck to side of my head. :lol3

    i've got pictures but i didn't download them the other night at the hotel that wouldn't let me post pictures

    now onto ones i did down load

    Got to Whitkers motorcycles just as tony was finishing up some brakes

    He took me rightin and got started. Once i got past guard dog, here is in his attack stance

    Now smugbug is not opening :confused

    check back later, more to come :bluduh

    on the way home i stopped off at the state nut house

    [​IMG]

    i didn't go in, i was scared

    actually i was still telling myself i was gonna get back in time for work

    yea, i'm not to smart, rolled back into memphis after work and realized i wasn't gonna make it.

    went home did some more packing, then met some friends at the saucer

    by the way all the work we did to the bike i think we've got it looking pretty good

    Was supposed to leave sometime wednesday, but this thought that the bikes loaded & the sooner i leave the farther i'd get kept going tru my head.

    about 11 i headed out, thank goodness i was going west because there was a turned over tractor trailer going east that had that whole side shut down.

    about 1 i was starting to have the bobble head & stopped in hazen ar

    i did stop on the other side at walmart for some sunscreen & a new gps

    spend a whole 10$ for one with a light in it
    [​IMG]


    Headed back to the big rd, saw a pawn shop sign that said 1500 guns. Ok i'll check it out, went across a ditch over some bumpy stuff to keep from going all the way around.

    And watched my brand new gps with a light in it bounce out into the freeway :huh
