Thanks for the great pics.  Looks like there is no dust settling on that connie.  How many miles so far on that new bike?

Thanks Jeff.

May not be much dust, but covered in plenty of road grime and bugs. Sometimes I feel guilty that I don't clean more.

1 year and 2 weeks old today with 22,800 miles. More than I expected for the 1st year.

How many sets of tires?

Hey Floyd, stop in for the COG Meet & Greet  this Thursday.

Approximately, to this point
1 x OEM  (6500m)
1 x PR4GT set used up (7400m)
1 x 3/4 used Conti Motion (3000m )
1 x  PR4GT set currently on (4900 and counting)

Not counting your nail plug  :beerchug: ;)

Yea  :(  - the 4900 includes 3K on the plugged tire
(so between whats left on the now better plugged tire and the "new/replacement" currently on the bike, I'm just pretending I have a new PR4GT waiting in the wings

Glad to hear you're progressing well back to 100%, keep it up! - I'd be happy to join you on part of your "pre-return to the workforce" ride.

Ben Hur Road east of Mariposa in the Sierra Nevada foothills



Great pictures!  Your neck of the woods is beautiful.  This one is my favorite.  My beaches in FL are nice, but roads are too flat for a C14.

Thanks Smitty. The Ben Hur shot is one of my favs too.

There are huge amounts of great roads and cool places near me - happy to share if you make it out this way.

The great thing is, as I venture to other places farther from my home turf, they all got great stuff too! I saw a bunch on my recent trip and trying to get some photos up.

I would love to come out there and ride someday.  Farthest I make it on a regular basis is SLC, UT for work...so no bike :(  When I am out that way, I usually stop in to the local BMW Dealer and take their stuff out for a "test ride".  The last time I did that, when I got back (after a few hrs) the salesman told me he forgot I was still out riding ;D...Lots of beautiful country out there.

When I bought mine in 2012, we headed out on a 3500 miler. Stopped at a Kawa dealer at 700 miles to do my own 1st  oil change in Petaluma Cal. They were most accommodating....even let me use a bay, and dump the old stuff for no charge

The 2 Kawa dealers I've stopped at on my trips have been helpful above and beyond too.
