Not to threadjack, but is anyone planning on hitting the bike show in DC this weekend? If so, I could maybe host or assemble some sort of foolishness, either on the bike or off. Right now, the best weather days look like Friday & Sunday. As I'm off on Friday, I'm actually planning on being at the Convention Center when they open the doors at 1:00... In the past, this strategy has proven effective at minimizing exposure to excessive fingerprints and drool. If the R1200RS breaks cover at the show, I can guarantee I'll be laying down a nice base coat on both counts!
Will, I was thinking of doing the same thing, though I'm playing it by ear. Thought I'd avoid the crowds and spare my wife the agony of accompanying me on Saturday. I'll keep my eyes out for you, if I do make it there Friday afternoon.
