It just means that I'll have to install 96' of stockade fence myself rather than have it done. That's okay. I'm actually looking forward to it. It may not be dead straight, but it will keep the neighbor's dog out of our back yard.

just back from a short vacation and saw this post ^

that's great news FTB
after all that work you've invested, good to hear you'll continue to enjoy it

no doubt the fence will be worthwhile.

Thanks. I put in the fence yesterday with help from a friend. It actually came out really well. Dead straight and posts are solid. Hit ledge in one post hole which had to have cement to secure it. Otherwise, it wasn't all that bad. I'm a little bit sore today, but I'll recover.

Here is my friend, Mike/280racer, helping with the fence...

Congrats! Man, where do these low mileage STs hide for so long. I was happy to find mine with only 34K miles and 3 previou owners.

I happened on an ad at my job from a fellow employee. He barely rode it, and was unable to ride anymore because of a condition.
When I started scouting bikes for my 1st ride, I had the ST brochure. I loved the styling. Financially, it was out of my reach though. One just happened to drop in my lap.

Thumb Auction ending today

A friend of mine is moving from New Hampshire to California. He will have room for only two of his three BMW bikes. His R80ST is for sale on eBay - LINK. I know this bike and its owner. It is very clean and well maintained.

Well, I done dun it.... look what followed me home:



1984 R80ST #7745

Seat is a butt-fugly Russell which was removed a) so I wouldn't go blindbonkers and b) it was going to rain, and I want to cut away dry foam....

Plan to do something with rear rack/indicators, probably go with a white/pinstripe scheme, and just enjoy the ole girl... yeeeeehaw!!

Excellent! Tony keeps great care of all his things. You're lucky to have that bike.

Here is mine just hanging out in the garage with the racing bike...

Hi Mark... am on a friend's Mac and I don't have access to my smugmug and otherwise cannot load photo... the seat is black, I can email you pics if you like. Email me at bpeckm at gmail dot com and I will respond with some photos.

I was just going to pull off the cover and shape the foam to my liking and have someone local cover it. If you can use it, I basically need a pan and foam and can punt from there... trade? At some point I might go with a Corbin, but the $$ are extremely tight these days!

Yeah, Tony told me you were right over in G'town. Nice to know there's a fellow "ST" rider in the area!
