Er, Umm, Sorry sir you can't do that here! It's a BMW! It needs a factory trained technician with $20K in tools and an expensive shop with polished floors and a snooty ex Lexus salesman that knows nothing. They have to have an opportunity to over price parts and labor and point out things that need fixing that you didn't know existed. You will never be allowed into the MOA now! And you're not wearing mechanics gloves!!

Bloody Epic RR, one for the history books.

Thank you for an epic ride report, and for your service. Glad you're on our side!

You, Sir, are one determined Dude, but Natalie is beyond amazing! You'd best cherish that lady!

Looking forward to the next ride on those new Yammahamers ...

Amazing ride report! After the point of complete BMW disassembly in an oriley's parking lot in the middle of the night, it was clear this would be an epic report. Im not too far away from you either, so maybe we'll cross paths one day. Thanks for putting this together!

Your fiance is a keeper - not many women can or would do what she did to be on this trip with you. You are a luck man [and after your married she will remind you of that ]
Great rr and better woman - Natalie you are a trooper !

Very cool ride report mate! I was glad to come across this, remember you mentioning it briefly up in Lake Arrowhead last spring, but I just found the thread for the first time. You bring a new meaning to the phrase "shade-tree mechanic". Ride on, and congrats on your engagement.
