I was up at Alice's Restaurant about 6-7 weeks ago having breakfast, Started talking about combat touring boots and just shootin' the breeze between tables. When it was time to go, walked out to his GS to check it out, White, Touratech bags, Clearwaters...nice bike. On that day I was CONVINCED I was buying a KTM 1190, and well, that must have gotten the wheels turning because now I'm riding a new GS.

Anyhow, I thought I'd give a shout out here to see if he inhabited these pages. I know he was heading to the MOA rally I'd probably owe him a beer commission for steering me away from that Austrian thing.
