Iron Butt

Seriously considering this - - however, needs preparation. Thought prep started almost 6 months ago when my friend Jon MacGregor completed it. Now preparations start in earnest. Need to see if it will be this summer (2015) or next (2016). Will keep you posted.

The bike with the new engine is doing really well. Happy.

New Engine

Got a new engine on the GS - under warranty. The paint on the old engine was coming off at places and the only option that BMW had was to replace the old engine. Good for me! :) Now I have a brand new bike!

Have heard not so good stories about failed engine replacements but so far, really happy with the new engine. For a change, I can hear the exhaust sound over the engine sound. The gear shifts are really smooth (impossible and unheard of on a 1200 LC, some would say).
