Naw ... It's my Uncle Mike. He's in the Atlanta area. He has three Airheads (that I've kept running) and he just bought a 2011 R1200GS. He's decided to downsize two of his airheads, and this was the one that I had always drooled over ... But Mike bought it about 6 months ago ... I will be getting the documentation and I'll know then. Mike bought it in Savannah ... Where's Thad?

And Len ...

Ah, some of my finest memories was of cherry picking airheads in Athens and Atlanta back in the early 80's...

It was a game to get them before Landsrtum did...

NO Whining

About the cold weather riding your doing on that GS this winter!

It is -38 F straight Temp. no wind chill and its only 2013.. I'll bet the over night low will be -45.

From the photo, you did real good, even if you had to re do the whole electrical system.

Hey Fred, would you consider selling the crashbars on Greta? The ones that wrap under the cylinders?

Absolutely. I'll even trade you for a set of heads ... I think we can work out something ...



And Stage ... Damn it man. You've got me thinking.
