    The Ramsey brothers had a BMW dealership in Belpre, OH back in the day. I think BMW wanted them to sink a boatload of bucks into it and they closed up shop.
    BTW I have 2 BMW oilheads, 1150GS and a 1100RT and I do all of the routine maint. I have the new digital TB sync tool doodad so that makes it easy. If anyone with a BMW wants to sync up send me a PM and we can make arrangements. Ripley area.......

    Awesome offer! May take you up on that before spring. I do all my own maintenance and repair as well. Really the beemers are a pleasant bike to work on

    I was thinking of unloading the 525 and getting one but I am not sure I would have as much fun.

    Only one bike for me. I dont believe it would perform that great when the going gets rough. Would have to slow down. If I were able to get another and keep the 525 it would be the strada.

    Speaking of which totally off subject but looking to buy some used park tools if anyone around has some they're not using. Been needing to remove crank arm for a while and no time sadly to take it to LBS (I usually love to support them), just to busy.

    Call me I can take care of it for you. I have all kind of tools, by the way you don't need a crank arm extractor for the cannondale.
