    I have been kinda side tracked (excuse the pun) with getting my new toy.
    It's a 1996 BMW R1100RT in Glacier Green. Always wanted one of these and my first BMW and I really love the ride.

    Wow...!!! That's some ride you got there..!! Sure is a beauty....I've always admired the engineering that goes into those things, but won't even think of riding one....

    So....time to get back to do some serious work....

    Gus , I did not ride for some 25 years and just recently started again when my dad passed away. I raced for about 10 years when I was young. It's kinda like riding a , well , motorcycle. You never forget how. :thumb:
