I believe the most mild mannered bike on the planet is the R1200R. Any elderlies feeling the pain of their Harly's have years left to ride on the R bike.

Ben, they are transporting her to SD tomorrow. She still needs surgery on her right ankle but it needs the swelling to go down a bit.

It was a friend of hers that was killed with his, new to him, Guzzi Sidecar rig. Wasn't a seasoned sidecar rider and went wide into a head on. From what I heard he was killed instantly.

I'll be down visiting over the next 3 or 4 months while she is recovering. We'll have to get together with Yeti and have a brewski or three.
