    What got me here

    Greetings, all. I am repatriating myself here after spending much of my energy on other sites. I've supported the BMW MOA off and on since the '80s when I served in the Navy in So.CA. Today I am on the other side of my work life, now looking at my approaching glide slope and hoping to extend it as long as I am viable.

    I have one great passion for things without a heartbeat and that is velocity; I am a speed junky. I find I am most calm, most centered when I am negotiating a delayed apex. I am also prone to fits of mad inventions:

    I am not happy unless I understand the insides. Now, the K; I so love this ride! I see Cylon following me to Valhalla. I can be found on most days between mud and black ice seasons here in New England, mostly at higher velocities, shooting the back roads of the North Country.

    So, that's what our bikes look like w/o clothes on! - Buxom Beauty I'd say.

    I need to figure our how to get all that Tupperware off w/o breaking it... I've only added some Skene lighting to the front & back...

    Keep up the good work there, DJ!
    Ciao, HSV-Phil & HSV-Karen

    It is scary at first. Film yourself. There are very good videos. Buy extra screws. When you remove the ones from the bike, punch them into cardboard so as not to lose them.
    Cylon is currently in the shop getting a new set of custom shocks for my particular riding habits. The OEM shocks lasted 27K; I hear very good things about the next set.

    Speed junky? I'll throw the flag... If you were a speed junky you'd be piloting a GT vice a cruiser; e.g. Bagger...
