    Arrived home hungry and tired last night! I checked it out this morning at the office. Looks like some awesome routes!

    Headed to the Adirondacks of NY the weekend of the 5th if you have any suggestions.

    Question

    What model Harley did you ride? What made you switch to BMW? I'm thinking of doing the same.

    I used to ride an Electra Glide. It was time to get a new bike and was ready to purchase another HD. I was buying my son a new Honda dirt bike and the Honda dealer also sells BMW. The style of the R1200GSA caught my eye. I threw a leg over and like the upright seating. The GSA offers a larger tank and pretty good wind protection too. Took a couple days to think about it and pulled the trigger on the BMW. My theory was I would give the BMW a try for 6-12 months and if I didn't like it, I would trade it off on a new HD.

    I have had the bike for less than three weeks and have a 1000 miles on it. I enjoy the ride and look. But the one thing that has me confused is all the Starbucks being loaded into the Navigator VI.
