Do you guys remember the Cedar City Landslide on Utah Highway # 14 that I mentioned here? Well, this picture is only a few days old. They may never be able to open this roadway up to Long Valley Junction!

OUCH!!! I hadn't seen a long range shot of the slide, way worse than I figured from the shots from the site itself. I've ridden that stretch a number of times. It would be a shame to lose that road. Beautiful ride on it's own, PLUS it's a gateway to MANY other great rides. Let's hope they do get it back in service.

I know IBF2, like you I had only seen the shots from both ends of the slide. Until this was posted up over at BMW MOA Forum, I had no real idea of just how damn lengthy this landslide really was!

That's great news and truly amazing! Incredible Utah Highway Department could move so much soil and restore a damaged road so damn quickly. AZ-DOT would've taken 3 years for this project!

Mein Beautiful Fraulein Gisele is back home to me, after five months later. But, she's finally home!

I believe in providing Credit where Credit is Due! First, I'd like to thank Mr. Dean Lear; Dean is a Mover and Shaker in the World of BMW and he used his many contacts to expedite my bike's return.

Dean was the Founder of BMW Motorcycles of San Jose, California; Dean actively raced BMW motos and he's basically Lived the Life BMW for the last 4 decades. Thanks so very much, My Friend Dean.

Dean's a very active Member of BMW Riders Association and "On The Level" magazine contributor.

Second, I'd like to immensely thank Mr. Cavanaugh, BMW of North America Motorrad Team Leader.

I feel that Anthony did everything he possibly could do, under the structure of BMW NA, to get my K16 returned to me as soon as he was able to.

Anthony Cavanaugh was the Man who "Thought Outside of the BMW Box" to come up with the idea to take the expansion tank off of a demo bike.

Third, I'd like to thank BMW Roadside Assistance folks, they were so courteous and helpful to us.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Now let me lastly mention BMW Motorcycles of Salt Lake City, Utah. On the morning of the deer strike, my Son Seth and his DaddyDon had given our "Gisele" a thorough washing at The Torrey Inn. We always stay at The Torrey Inn when we travel as a group and I highly recommend that your Utah moto visits include The Torrey Inn.

$6,400 was spent at BMW SLC to repair "Gisele". As we unloaded her off of the truck 1 hour ago, there was still deer pee, saliva specks, and blood on my bike. They never even washed my Gisele.

Can you imagine spending that kind of $$$ and not even getting your bike back clean from a shop!!!

We always stay at The Torrey Inn and if we travel with a group, they set up a wash station for us: Garden hose, soap, rags, towels and brushes. I highly recommend that your Utah moto visit includes The Torrey Inn.

First, Congratulations on getting your bike back! That's wonderful, even if it is only about 3 or 4 months later than would have been fair to you.

As for BMW of Salt Lake City, the fact that these folks didn't wash your bike is the least of their VERY VERY VERY LONG list of SINS.

I think these folks will be going the way of Boggarts, Crossroads, and a long list of others who were not able to hold up their end of the BMW Customer Service model. If BMW has a lick of sense, your "incident" will be part of their woodshed ritual prior to the button stripping.

Well, all's well that ends well. I'm sure glad she's finally home.
Patience isn't a virtue.... It's a coping skill.
