Thank you John.

This remembrance was well worth the wait. You've captured beautifully what so many of us have in our hearts and what makes us family.

Wow, I have not been on this board in years, primarily because I sold my last RT in 2006 frown At one point, back in the summer of 2000, I was pretty active here, especially just before I left on my Ride4Joe, a cross country motorcycle trip that I made to raise money for a friend of mine who had cancer. On that trip, I met up with fellow BMWRT.com members Kris Besley and Jackie Paul, rode more than 11,000 miles through 35 states in 28 days, and raised $30,000 for Joe Porambo's medical treatment. Tragically, he died a year later. But the last time I saw him, two weeks before his death, he told me that the ride really kept him going. He loved reading the updates that I posted from Kinko's stores across the country, so perhaps it helped. And for my Public Service Announcement of the day, I encourage anyone else who has the time and resources to do something similar for a friend or family member who they care about.

I sold that first RT (2000 Special Edition) about a year after I moved from Santa Cruz, CA to Whidbey Island, WA, and then bought a 1996 RT up here about a year after that. But the riding season is pretty short when you have to deal with snow and ice, and I sold that bike several years ago. After a brief fling with a cheap floozy who just couldn't compare (a 1982 Yamaha Seca 650), I gave up bikes for a while. But now, as evidenced by my return to this forum, I am pining away once again...

Congrads on the 10 year aniversary. I've saved some emails from members dating back to 2000. The first being from Cary Little Jr. June 13th 2000. I can remember trying to help out the site back then by giving away one of the sites t-shirts to a female that rode in to the motel area my friend and I had stopped at. Turned out to be embarrassing however since I had wrapped my shorts up with a t-shirt for each day plus a couple extra.
As always it's the people who respond that make my day.
Thanks for all the years of humor and of coarse advice over the years.
