i may have made a huge mistake!!

i currently own an r1100gs--my third one--and have owned an r1150gsa in the past i just paid a deposit on an r1200gsa that i will take delivery of in a few days. after reading the current threads on the r1200gsa, i realized that there isn't a starbucks within a hundred miles of where i live in hattiesburg, ms . is this gonna work out??

Bikes are like women. What you think you want, and what you want, change after the first ride.

You didn't make a mistake. Riding four hours to get a cup of coffee fits in well with the spirit of things!

Wink Don't get into the rut

After the first "super slab" run to Starbutts buy the over priced freeze dry version of the "gag me" version of your choice and you won't have to return. I'm good my wife keeps them close at hand for those days when I'm hung and I can't ride safely.

There's a Krispy Kreme shop within walking distance.

I hope you still have one of the old oilheads...that 1200 is gonna quit on you.

Seattle drip was a nasty affliction in the 90's due to the grunge scene and guys not using condoms.
