Hell's yes. You want to get out this weekend since it's supposed to be super nice? Maybe I can somewhat keep up with you since you are in limp home mode.....

No biggie, I had plans to take off and ride somewhere but I doubt I'll be riding real early.

What's your health insurance's stance on this, hmmmm?????

If you end up doing some morning riding over the weekend I might meet for breakfast...

My wife gave me a talking to this morning about riding so she must have knew I was itching to ride. When I stoped to get gas she called and I had to have her wait while I took my helmet off so I could hear her. I don't think she know what I was doing.

I don't have much free time this weekend but if anyones in the area and wants to meet to get something to eat let me know.

I had to get onto the bike from the right hand side for a while after my leg healed up enough to ride.

Meef... a smaller Tenere flyscreen idea:



While this one may be... less than perfect... the theory is simple, and you may be able to make something work along these lines for less than the cost of a used BMW part. I'm going to add this idea to my 'spring time shit to do' list.

He probably just pulled them off his GSA before he traded it in, and threw them on his new S10 .



Seriously though, A pair of good small LED axillary lights can put out over 7000 lumen now, and HID bulbs in the factory headlight housing can do damn near the same. Any display of lights like this is strictly for poser purposes anymore IMHO.
