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. 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.
