You should see if Gulf Coast will give you a break on the labor cost for the the use of your name.

Salesman, "this particular 2011 GS actually has parts on it that were once tried out on the Infamous Storm Trooper Bike, yeah thats right, Chitown's ride. It was parked right over there just a few months back."

I'm subscribed -

I left Chicago Monday Morning (in my cage) on dry roads, thinking if I just drove South I could leave the cold and snow behind... and be in Phoenix in 2.5 days.

Obviously you had exactly the same thoughts.

BTW - these roads are all now snowy, icy and wet. You left just in time.

Remember, it's not an adventure till something goes wrong.

Keep the great pix and writing coming.

Glad to see BMW steppen' up. Some us 1150rt drivers with the 'potential' final drive problems, have lost alot of confidence in the company.
Best to you on your travels! Great pics. Not the story you probably wanted to tell, but you sure tell it well.
Say hey if your coming near so. cali!
