    My bike has arrived

    My 1973 BMW R75/5 has arrived, safe and sound after its journey from Tennessee to Utah this weekend.







    I shipped with this shipper that I found through uShip:
    http://www.uship.com/profile/hurtinc

    He was on time (early, in fact), and had excellent communication throughout the process. I'd recommend him.

    Got some work to do on the bike before it's ready to ride, and I need to sort out the missing key to the seat lock.

    Why thank you!

    I've come to appreciate the qualities of a machine designed by folks who cared that it be done properly.

    I think it's hot on that two-wheeler that just moved in next door.

    P.S. Yo Andrew...I was hoping you'd flog that thing all the way home from Tennessee. You apparently don't cotton to surprises and adventures into the great unknown?

    I was really hoping to do just that, but time and money prevented it this time. At $500 for the shipping, it was cheaper to ship it then to fly out and ride it back -- and this is a time of year when it's hard to get time off of work.

    I'll just have to do my own adventures from here instead.
