test again - still shows expired membership
Hey old friend, I've been gone a few years, but recently found my way back.
Indeed I did. Found an 89 R100RT in nice shape with just 42K miles on the web some distance away. I heard it run through the phone, seller did a skype walkaround, so I bought it. Bought a plane ticket to fly over & get it, then planned to ride it home, but thought better of a 1000 mile day at 40 degrees of rain & sleet the whole way. Finally getting a bit smarter in my old age. I burned the plane ticket & talked Mary into riding 48 hours in the truck to keep me company over Mothers day weekend to go fetch it. I tracked down the owner before the seller and learned the bike spent 90% of its life here in CO, and the carbs are still tuned for altitude. New tires & it runs like a champ... Still, Mary and I are riding the R1150GS to the national rally in Great Falls next week. I rejoined the Airheads list, since I had one for the the first time in 6 or 7 years. They weren't kind enough to keep my member number though, even though I asked them to just re-instate it.
I see we have a new Air-Marshall in CO while I was away. I don't see much for events yet. Maybe we should resurrect the Ride & Soak...
What's your story?
