She's extremely excited and that 250 was a total gem to find! 2002, 4k miles, one owner, garage kept.
Awesomeness.

Actually looking at a CBR250 now that the Tenere is gone.

and KJ, yes, I think 17 it was. Very close to MRG.

Haystack...that's the last time I rode the bike. I parked it after that and never took it out again. A good thing, not a bad thing. "It is done" feel to it.

Wow! MoBill and Haystack, sold your bike bikes. Bill that was quick! but I must admit there is something to be said for smaller bikes. To be honest, I hardly touched my GSA this summer so far. I always seem to gravitate to the 650 single without even thinking. Of course after riding the GSA, the 650 feels like a 125 in size and weight .
Nicely kept S10 Bill.

Was wondering when that was going to happen. Harleys are great, but you do get tired of scrapping metal in the twisties after a while. And they are a little harder to load up with gear, unless you are truly minimalistic. And they look funny with knobbies!

Tom, welcome to the madness! Now, you can put a GPS unit on your bike! You know how to use one of those, right?

Well, it is a BMW after all.

Not an issue when you have an exciting large (but not grossly so) bike.

Anyone recognize this mural? I was going to use it as a tag in the SJ tag game not too long ago, but then a tire company came in and bought the property and painted over it. The place was called " Restoration Station" and it's claim to fame was either owning or restoring the Pink Cadillac that was in the movie Mannequin.
