Keep it coming. Having the delight of meeting you recently, I must add that you write with the same joyful abandon with which you communicate in person.
A couple of things more. I also used to own a (much maligned on this board) R1200C. It's a nice bike for what it is, but what it is is not for me.
Finally, I noted with interest your comments regarding hiking in Guadalupe NP in west TX. Come to our Friday breakfast and you'll find out that the S.T.U.D.S. (South Texas United Dual Sports
) are planning that very trip in the near future.
