    While I was at his shop, he had his bike trailer out and had the hubs off the axle, checking the bearings. Cleaned and removed all the old grease. Added fresh grease. Had his R100 on the lift, checking it all out. He's leaving Tuesday for Daytona Bike Week. His family were all going out tonight to celebrate his wife Jane's 94th birthday party. Wow, what a life.

    Marshall's Back Safe and Sound

    Talked with Marshall yesterday about his Daytona trip. He said it was all great, a perfect trip to Daytona Bike Week. Good, kinda like your kids first week away from home. He took a R50/5 and his R100/7. He said he was surprised that the /7 got more attention than the /2; a first.

    Marshall took a /2 not a /5. The /7 got more attention than a /2. Reminds me of a story. OK, since you twisted my arm ; I'll tell the story. Back in the mid-80's, I was riding my '71 R50/5 to local rallies. I rode to the Trail of Tears Rally. I was close to getting the oldest bike; but got beat out by a '70 /5. When they announced the winner; there was a pretty loud chorus of boos. I was a little new to rallies, but /2's were supposed to win. I got it, but BMW riders are a pretty tough crowd. I was starting to learn the pecking order of the enlightened cognoscenti. :

    Bored at the Crib

    Sittin around the house bored, like everybody else. And like everybody got to watching the tube. Most of it is junk, but I did find a few that were kinda interesting. You probably have already seen all of them. I'm always behind the curve.

    In addition to watching these movies, I've been hitting my wine cellar pretty hard. I've really put a dent in it. I'd been stocking up for some time. It's fun to play wine connoisseur. My wine cellar of 12 bottles in a cardboard box is down to two bottles.
