Rider/Writer Wanted

Hi All!

Sorry I don't know as many riders as I'd like here in Tucson, but I need a BMW R12GSA w/ESA rider here in Tucson who would like to do a quick install and eval of a new cool product for a possible short magazine piece. Anyone interested?

Call me at 407-5546 or email sandy@bmwmcmag.com

Thanks!

Sandy

I am unqualified with my wee little F800, and Skips non GSA 1200 is also. I knew we needed another bike in the garage.

After you get your big raise you'll be able to afford one?

Saw you on the news on the "line"... It was obvious as you were the only one with a pink sign and motorcycle helmet on....

Speaking of Hello Kitty...whatever

Anyone want to take a little run up Mt Lemmon on street rides today? I'm taking the 800 (sadly all the rest are currently is some stage of disrepair).

I would be game, but disrepair is a nice term for the state my bike is in. Eating itself is a bit more the right way to say it.

Too bad as I've been wanting to do a mt lemmon ride lately.

I can be ready at 3:30 also, but my Hello Kitty gear is still hanging out to dry. I'll have to wear my plain old drab gear.

This sounds like a job for Goodtimes...I don't recall anybody around here having one of those, but Brian ought to know.

Wanna go tomorrow? I got two bikes, both NOT in a state of disrepair. 'course they're a low rent, classic (kicker) DR650 and a disreputable KLR. Nuttin fancy like a Husaburg, BM Dubyer, or a KittyM. I'd like to go a little earlier than 3:30 tho.

To clarify, you can ride the KLR. Which for a KLR is a really nice road bike.

Disreputable klr? Ha sure I'm game. When? I'm pretty much free all day. I'm waiting on parts for my sumo, so all I'm doing is working on my spanish.

No the DR is the disreputable one (ya sure!)

The KLR is a 685, all juiced up with a fancy schmancy pipe (somewhat loud) and other drink the koolaide stuff. Guaranteed not to break or lose stuff on the road. Proof that for a price, you CAN make a silk purse out of a sow's ear. Probably needs some gas.

Come over 10:30ish. I live in Far Horizons, 555 North Pantano #338. Blue hairs have mostly fled. 520 Eight seven oh, 3552
