I have promised Tracy that I would be with her for Monday and Tuesday, so I won't be leaving Dallas till the 2nd. I had planned on notifying you on the way back in March for a meet up if it is possible!

I'm not for sure about my route just yet, but I will pretty much be taking a straight shot from Laredo to Tapachula.

If anyone following this has technical expertise with the R1100 GS I know Donnie would appreciate you having a look at this:

I am sure the price of BMW parts will make up the difference!

It is running!!! It seems that the problem all along wast the water in the gas, but before the gas was replaced a couple of problems were created in searching for the problem! I should be leaving town within the hour!

Hi!

The moto is finally fixed! The Halls Sensor had to be replaced and it took forever for them to get the wiring correct, but all is good now. I have been riding it local for about four days and 400 miles with no problems.

I am in Guatemala City on the way to Panama with my moto broken down. I am on the R1100GS and have it in the BMW shop. I am not very pleased with the attention it is getting.

Tracy is getting better very very slowly. But she is not close to being able to drive a car or work. It has been over six months now. The doctor says that she will eventually have her normal vision.

Madison, her daughter is one year old today!
