thanks for that quote
i appreciate it

it's just so weird that you NEVER hear of this problem in an automobile....
and THEY ALL have had this sysstem for years..... and everyone of us has several keys on our ring when we drive

WHY is that?
'11 R1200 GS Adventure with a DMC M72DX Sidecar

Live life like you mean it... but take your family and friends (and DOGS) along for the "ride"
