Oh my! We're all shocked and saddened by your defection I'm sure. Best of luck with your new BMW. I hope you will report back on how its working after a 10,000 miles or so. Be sure to read through all the trouble reports on the Parallel Universe forum. Hundreds of such posts there. * (F800GS) I'm with Smellyhound and Gfunk. No hurry here. I'll happily sit back and wait and go to school to learn everything Tiger 800XC that I can.
