Anyone got an extra FJR they want to loan out for the day?? Sounds too good to miss especially if OM is gonna be there.



Have fun.

Burk, contact me at either 480-440-4666 or beemerdons@aol.com Miss Donna and I are riding Miss Lucy Liu our FJR, but you are welcome to ride my BMW GS 800.

You'd need to be at 1061 North Amber Street in Chandler at 1000 hours with your riding gear, we'll then ride to Donna's to pick her up in South Chandler.

Here we go again. Just like you are a 'full 6 inches', now your BMW GS has magically gone from a 650 to an 800. Senility is a wonderful thing, ain't it?

Don't blame me, blame the damned Krauts (sorry, Petey!); BMW calls an 800 a 650 for some phony baloney European Common Market Licensing and Insurance Regulations and Requirement Statute, plus I went ahead and fixed your post for you!

78?? Damn that's too hot for me this time of year! sunday's gonna be 38 here, or so they say. 20 degrees above average.
Think I might have to wear long sleeves.

It has been abnormally warm here, Just 20 minutes ago I had to shoot a raccoon who decided dinner was in my fish pond out back. Damn thing's ain't gonna hibernate this year if this keeps up.
