Before I could even say anything about giving her a hand the bike topples over into 2 other bikes. I rush in to help pick it up from nearly being on top of her and the other 2 older sales people go dead silent and are in shock before they rush over to help out too. My first hands on with a BMW GS bike.. and jeez they are heavy!

On another note picked up my bike hauler :) Going to mount in a chock under the jumper seat frame so i can swap between the seats and hauling duties.
Agreed - the GS is top heavy, and it's no feather weight. But, good on you for helping out. I'll vouch for Blane and the crew at GR BMW. I don't think its possible to do everything perfect - but, in my dealings with them - I have seen them do the right thing.

birthday/openhouse is a good way to put it. 9 until 3 with refreshments other than Phil himself. http://www.facebook.com/#!/photo.php...type=1&theater

Refreshments?..I almost hate going over there because I want to buy a bike but know I can't, so I get depressed when I get home and have to look at my old funky bikes... At least they are old, funky, reliable and paid for.

No sex?! Bummer, but that makes it semi-kid friendly right? I mean, how bad can some Beemer riders be right?

Either way, I'll stop by with the little one tomorrow. Keep it clean

If anyone wants to stop by for a beer or to shoot the shit I'll be in my shop replacing the wheel bearings on my car. I'm just a few miles from GR BMW.

Shoot me a pm if interested.

If I make it back to town in time I'll stop by too. I'll be the homely guy with the FU hat.
