Awesome. I remember seeing your work on this early on. You using GIS to build the route files? What sort of dataset are you using for roads? Happen to have any shapefiles or feature classes I could borrow to help the TET folks with? Thanks!

Congrats, Dave! I think...
She's dancing and I am crying. I did manage to get my asking price, which is nice. I thought it was fair and wasn't ready to take less.

Since my wife doesn't frequent this site, I will admit that I'm beginning to look for a trail bike to keep off road. Unfortunately, I dug a little hole when I bought the Wee. Today's sale helps me fill that back in, but I'm going to need to finish that business before I buy another bike. I'll keep my eyes and ears open, but I expect I'll need a little time.

Congrats on selling the XT...I think I'd have bought it if my budget went that high. It was good meeting you on Saturday!

I question whether that really is a BMW but the front wheel and brakes look familiar. If I were you, I would pm Jeff Munn in Petersburg. If anyone would know, he would.



Looks like a non us version of a previous version of the f650cs.

I'm guessing that someone is having fun with a BMW badge.

Air cooled single or inline?

Edit: I zoomed in, looks like a radiator or oil cooler.

Well, it shore ain't no K-bike, oilhead, or airhead. And don' look like any of the singles the Bavarians have let loose on the streets. Checked a couple of BeemerBubbaBooks and don' see this-a-one anywheres.

Agree--we maybe been spoofed.
