    Damn....I was gonna low-ball you this winter.
    Glad it went to a good home!
    Hey, I met Butch the Cabbie on the TRW Ride to The LeMay/ Ace Cafe bike show on Saturday.

    Suspension? Yes, I'm happy.

    The front forks are awesome. They float over the bumps pretty good now, though the temperature and road conditions aren't favorable for pressing it very hard.

    The rear shock is harder to evaluate. There are some conditions it works better, but it is still choppy over some surfaces. I think I may either leave it as-is until I see Brian again in the spring or try adjusting the settings and find a happier medium. Probably not ride it as much as last winter until things warm up.

    I've got HIDs, the PC5 and Autotune, and the Taylormade exhaust to install. That should keep me busy. Plus, I need to get my bike to RW for a scheduled service sometime this winter (was due in October). Thinking of buying some rearsets. Driven brand look cool for adjustability, replacement parts (important) and price.

    See ya buddy.

    Hey me again.

    Have you gotten your S1K back from RW yet?

    What was the overheating issue caused by, did they have to replace your QS, and what was the damage warranty/dollar wise (if you don't mind)?

    I was just kidding about giving Mac your bike, but boy that was a popular thread you started about driving lessons, ha, ha. Man they grow up fast.

    Did you go to Jason's memorial service last Sunday? Weather looks like it held out, but that was just too far for me to risk it, and just didn't trust riding with an unknown quantity of riders - many of them touting they wanted to act as parade blockers. That's a formula for yet another tragedy.

    Hey Wayne,

    Did you know Jason Jones of South Sound BMW? He passed away in a car/MC accident last Friday night.

    I think he was Snocompton here of this Forum, and was responsible for organizing South Sound events as well as Redline racing activities.

    Real loss for us Beemer guys and riders in general.

    Hey Swanny,

    Had the day off from work yesterday for my birthday and was able to go for a 2 hour ride on the backroads east of the Bellevue and Renton area. Found the road you were telling me about located just east of Snoqualmie Falls. Can't wait to go back there again and do some more exploring. Thanks for the heads up.
