    New member, old rider, Phoenix Arizona

    Hi all,
    I was told by my wife of 31 years that I couldn't buy a motorcycle. She wouldn't allow it. She doesn't work, her mom moved in 3 years ago and doesn't contribute to the household. I bought 3 cars and 4 years of college for our 3 kids, that continued to stay at home years after graduating without paying rent, so as the SOLE provider of the 4000 sq.ft resort home, I decided to get a divorce.
    I bought a 2016 K1600GTL Exclusive, and I tasty to ride!

    Welcome Mikey! Enjoy your life -- enjoy the ride! And no worries if you find yourself straying a little. More than one bike is usually a good thing!

    Greetings Mikey the Medic!

    Sorry for your various trials & tribulations with the eX; but you've certainly turned the page nicely! Enjoy your GTL with eXuberance and show up online and in-person somewhere along the way! If'n U haven't heard, the MOA rally will be in the central USofA next year- aka: Springfield, MO, in June. You'll be reading about it all winter in the neXt many editions of the Owners' News. We had a good time in the small village of Great Falls, MT last June...

    We're CoddiWompling our way across the USofA this summer; we also managed to avoid Arizona where the "M-in-L" resides... Enjoy your stay in the Valley of the Sun --- we're both ASU grads -- class of '83. Fork 'em for us when they're not looking.

    Be safe & Be seen!
    Ciao!
