Hwy 38 is a great run. I always try to include that one if I am riding north/south in that area.

I have been on most of that route at one time or another. A nice run for sure, some great spots where the pines get really close to road and so do the bear and deer!

Been some gorgeous weather out here the last few days, just beautiful - particularly in the mornings. I cry a little inside when I turn off the road and into work...

Hey Brian, I caught your comment re the condition of the RT... Is it "toast"? If so sell it off through EBay and or Kijiji ... Might get done return on it.

The engine is full of metal, just not in the condition BMW intended.
Guess running on it's side under power for a while isn't too good for it.
Frame that supports the front fairing and headlight is also bent, though can be straightened.
Plastics are in worse shape than I originally thought.
Not sure yet if I'll get another and use this one for spares, or try to find the bits I need to rebuild it.
