    New member from Hot Springs, AR

    Hello all---Jack Crosby here. I just re-joined after a pretty long absence.

    I totaled my 1987 R-80 in the mountains 5 years ago --almost totaled myself watching a fellow rider on his new Triumph carve the turns instead of watching the road. Bike was a basket case as it shedded parts slowing down riderless from 70 to zero. I was sore but unhurt.

    One of our group was a tool and die maker and master mechanic who bought the
    baskets of parts from the BMW dealer and rebuilt the bike almost like new.
    He passed away a year ago and his son sold the bike cack to me for $2K. It has only 9,500 miles on the engine so I look forward to many more years of riding it.

    Glad to be back in the fold.

    Go soothingly through the grease mud, as there lurks the skid demon.
