    I did receive the check but haven’t even opened it as I was waiting on you to get and approve the unit. U’ve actually sold both my bikes and can no longer ride. I’ve accepted that. I am glad you are happy and thank you for letting me know. Safe and wonderful travels to you! Rudy

    Jealous of your snow, we are stuck in that in-between stage. We will have snow at the cottage this weekend but just enough to cancel our riding plans and not enough for sledding. Boo! I have the noco battery kits, one in the nose of my sled with a charge cable attached so I can charge it without getting it out and a small one for riding but I make one of my Harley buddies carry it since he is the only one that has ever used it

    I have a friend who just bought a RDL seat for his K16. He has ridden ver 40000 miles this summer, believe it or not, he has.
    Before the K16, there was the LT. Before the LT was the K1200RS. My wife and I rode from our home in the UP of Michigan to Key West and back. We did that when I was 63.

    Yeah, I know what you mean. I'm 56 but the reason I bought the K16 is because everyone keeps telling me I'm too old to be screaming around on a Busa. It was quite a shock when I realized the K was less comfortable than the Busa! Well we will see where I go from here. I wanted adventure when I bought the BMW, but this is a bit more than I bargained for!
