I like to died in front of the entire NmS group trying to ride an unrideable Honda, busted six ribs, bad, punctured a lung, bad, spent a week in the Fresno hospital (very bad), and he kept sending me photos of people having fun in restaurants. But the REALLY sorry thing that sorry guy did? He sent me a bunch of the rocks from where that Honda went crazy and ran into the side of a cliff.

He's just sorry.

Well, I'm glad you're recovered enough to stage the "Battle in Beatty" extravaganza. Ya think it might rival the "Thrilla in Manila" ? cool

Mark, how do you feel about a vintage 2005 BMW K1200 LT that's getting kinda long in the tooth. I'd be happy to offer her up for a swap. That way I can go in with cash instead of a trade in. Win win!

Nah. I've ridden that model 90,000 plus miles. I need something sportier. DHanson says I should borry (his word) Cornelius's bike. Are there any road cuts to run into in Death Valley?

Is Carl gonna be there?

Whoops, I thought you said R1200RT. I never rode a K1200LT. Sure, just promise me the bus ride to Vegas isn't as bumpy as the ride down to Fresno.

You misunderstand. The medic will be riding this right behind you.

Of course the medic will stop short of following you into or over a mountainside.[Linked Image]

All roads are bumpy when you have broken ribs.

Or, speaking from experience, a broken collarbone or acute appendicitis (not to be confused with having a cute appendix, which I no longer do).
