UPDATE: I'm back in California. My FJR is in Albuquerque, NM. Huh?
I was in Pueblo, CO fixi'n to start my last leg via RT. 50. One of my favorite rides and I realized that it was the Friday start to the Memorial Day weekend. All the big-rigs had been replaced with camper trailers, motorhomes and family packed cars. A LOT of them. As you may know, Rt 50 is a two way across the desert to Carson City, NV. In the first hour I had see 4 trooper cars and 2 stops. I decided that traveling at 65mph for two days would suck and Yes, I rerouted to ABQ to spend time with friends and wait it out. It was about 4.5 hours to ABQ and I thought ... So when I got to Albuquerque I phoned Bobby J's Yamaha and went over there. Nice guy and in under 45 minutes he bought my FJR. He gave me a good price which pretty much made me even for the ST1300, that BMW LT and the FJR itself. I really liked the FJR and will likely get another one. (I'll keep my membership here activated) Plus I already knew that I wanted a 6 speed and registering an non-Cali bike is a huge hassle.
In the end, it was a very positive, albeit "unintended", experience. Not the least of which was meeting you guys.
Thanks for everything.
