    Is there anyone available today, Saturday, 24 April 2021 to help me get my new to me '16 R1200 GS off the trailer?

    Thank you,
    Nikki

    There are seven chartered clubs in PA and you may have more luck trying to contact one of them. Not sure which are close to you, but there is one called the Delaware Valley BMW Riders which I think might be near. Their website is: https://groups.io/g/DelValBMWRiders

    All chartered club listings can be found here: https://www.bmwmoa.org/page/charteredclubs

    Good luck. You are wise to seek help in unloading if you have doubts about doing it alone. Congrats on the new bike.

    Good news

    I will change the title so it doesn't reflect an emergency.

    'she' did. Ugg...Guy as a surname can cause so much confusion now and days.

    Even got it off the ground by myself, after a drop while practicing slow turns. Took 3 times and a re-watch of a YouTube video. Never hated a full tank of gas so much before.

    Whoops- I was even worse than that- I didn't even LOOK at the name. My bad...my VERY bad...apologies all around and thanks for the correction. There's a video out there of a little girl (really a ...little...girl) righting a goldwing! Granted a lower center of gravity but still- smart trumps strong. EDIT I'm not sayin' you're not strong...someone grab this shovel please!LOL
