    You bastards.

    You’re all such a bad influence.
    Now I have about a week to work up a story for my wife... :augie
    (Helluva deal though for something I’ve lusted after for a long time. :D)

    Thank you, Pokie.

    Couldn't happen to a nicer guy. Try the "Motorcycles will get you thru times of no money better than money will get you thru times of no motorcycle." Line on her.

    I don't understand. A tank is small enough to be hidden/tucked behind your other stash, right? Why tell her at all???

    I travel for work, so she usually finds the packages on the porch before I can.
    Usually they’re small, and sometimes for her. No biggie.

    But this one... :shog
    (By the calendar, I should be in Philadelphia when it shows up.)

    It’ll be fine. We both like old stuff, but there might be a brief reddening of my cheeks. :D

    ...if I'm not wrong this G/S has been passed around L.A. like a an old hooker. B
    ut I may be wrong. It might be the same one we found in an alley carport 44 years ago. I missed out on it at a $2500 offer ;). Could be a different bike. If not, the price has been hipsterized...
    BMW R80G/S - $16000 (Los Angeles)

    When I see a price like that I'm tempted to see what I can put together from parts on the internet. Of course the result wouldn't be triple numbers matching. :lol2 And dot 5 brake fluid?! Not in my bike. I also can't find a mention of the mileage anywhere.

    For the benefit of the community's knowledge and edification: this bike sold for $6,500 to a gentleman in Idaho who has been shopping for one for four years. His intent is to meticulously restore the mechanics and electrical, then enjoy it into his golden years. As it should be.

    Peace,

    So you can hand it back over to me at Kenton Station again? :norton

    As an aside, who was the fellow I talked to yesterday evening at the bottom of the I-205 SB offramp at PDX?
    Are you on here?

    A white mono-shock R100RS you had just bought in SEA, and were road-tripping it home. Died with a total loss of electrics. Probably a charging system failure where the battery had finally given out.

    Me: on my silver K1300S, heading into work. (Had to leave for Honolulu in an hour.)
