Sure do appreciate your advice you guys- the idle kick up made a great difference and as far as bringing it in- great advise re warranty, factory blunders and checking specs- all adds up to good sense having the dealer do the first 600 mile service on it Thank you Fella's! Hey Hot Rod and Howie, I sure didn't mean to stir a fuss but I really appreciate both of your expertise!



Well......Whatever- it doesn't stall anymore so there ya go. Have a nice day



Good response! :thumbsup:

You'll learn to filter out about 99.9% of what Howie has to say. :P
But that other 0.1% can be worth wading through the rest to find. ;)

Sehr Wunderbar, you crusty old Reprobate. Arrived at my illegitimate Bastard Son SkooterG's house yesterday AM and he helped (he did most of the work!) install my Ilium engine guards and Wunderlich saddlebag bars on mein Gisele.

SkootyG then installed the Sena Bluetooth headsets I bought from Cougar in my helmet and in Son Seth's helmet. We then rode to Gila Bend for lunch at Sofia's, my treat for my El Fantastico Hijo GreggieM! Thanks again SkooterG, Papa!

It's funny......... Watching mi bastard step-pappy riding his $$$$$ scooter is like watching a big Irish turd on top of a big German turd. :)

Stinky to be behind him!

Yup...I have a brand new DeMarini that is just looking for something soft to hit. I say we go visit the donkey boy. Actually, I know a day in April when he is going to be meeting some guys at an intersection. We can be just like wise-guys from back in the day.

Hey Howie...What do you say we go visit this new smartass Rick B too? Or maybe we should wait till we know him better. He could be a frickng ninja for all we know. It'd be embarrassing to get our ass kicked by a noob!

Either way, you call it. The "Beat Beemerdons Ass Tour 2012" is on like Donkey Kong.

Great idea, AJ, but wouldn't kicking Beemerdon's ass be an all day job? He IS ALL ass, y'know. We'd better pack a lunch! :D

First oil change at the dealer, so they can look over a brand new bike? Bwahahahahah

+1 - especially if it is the same bunch of kids that did the dealer prep and assembly 600 miles earlier. :huh:
