    [QUOTE=moondog ยป]Not advancing age though sometimes it feels like it ๐Ÿ™‚ . I went down on my R100 last year and broke my right leg. I am kind of spooked now. I expecting that deer to jump out of me or some one pull out in front of me. I am taking it slow this year. I can’t fathom the idea of giving it up. I need to get my nerve back.[/QUOTE]

    Sorry to here about your accident. Not to be callous, But you have heard the
    old addage, that if you fall off a horse it best totet right back on… I have
    been in two accidents in 30+ years of riding. One was my fault and one was caused by a drunk driver. We have a hoppy that can be dangerous, but so is skiing, diving, jumping from planes, etc.. all have thier risk, but we do as best we can to minimize the danger and have fun. It’s good that I sometimes still get scared. It keeps me on my toes. My biggest fear right now is teenage girls on cell phones. Keep the rubber side down. Just my 2 cents. ๐Ÿ˜Ž
    PS saw you thread on the MOA also, but I’m tryin to use this site more.

    [QUOTE=AntonLargiader ยป]This thread keeps bouncing back…

    Several older riders I know are rediscovering the joys of smaller, lighter or lower bikes. It keeps them on two wheels whereas their previous bike (often a Beemer) was too hard to manage.[/QUOTE]

    Yes I know a few people who did that. Seems like a good idea to me.

    [QUOTE=gespannejok ยป]FWIW, my August statement [U]still[U] didn’t reflect any refund of the
    double dorm charge… …I pinged Messer Faber a g a i n . . .:confused:

    …BTW, Beemer-Me-Up – what’s the military crest on your post, the M-9 bayonet-over-CIB thing? I was Army seven years, but my ordnance and Cav
    crests weren’t nearly so spiffy.[/QUOTE]

    Its called a Combat Action Badge (CAB) Its awarded to people who have been in combat , but are not in the infantry. I believe it came out in 2005 but was retro-ed back to 2003.

    [QUOTE=gespannejok]- – and paid with plastic, be aware that some of us got charged twice
    on their credit cards. I spotted this on my statement the other day,
    emailed Ethan Faber at MTU housing, and he replied that mine wasn’t
    the only occurrence.[/QUOTE]

    Thanks for the heads up. I’ll double check my statement. ๐Ÿ˜Ž

    [QUOTE=jeremell]It appears from some posts on the MOA forum that the 2009 national rally will be in Gray, TN. Any comments from our TN members?[/QUOTE]

    Great area, but did it last year and for all its bells and wistles I dought that the MOA site can compare with Ashville. Also quite hot in July and I’m already reading there is not much shade at the Gray site. I’ll wait an see where the RA is going to be held, or hit one of the rallys held around the country by local clubs. Just my two cents on this. I’m sure there will be plenty of interesting thoughts on the MOA site in a few weeks. ๐Ÿ˜Ž

    [QUOTE=moondog]Boy this a lively site. We got to talk it up riders! Or are we busy on other sites?[/QUOTE]

    I hear you moondog. MOA and Adventure get all the action at this time. I’m hoping that this site will become a good alternative. ๐Ÿ˜Ž

    I ran the Olins on my 94-RS and found them much superior to stock. I will be switching out the stock shocks my 04-RT sooner or later.

    [QUOTE=BMWPhreak ยป]In my efforts to come close to being a rounder, I try to get out and ride every month of the year. After yesterday, I have fulfilled my quota for February with a beautiful ride up and down RT395. Had my powerlet jacket on 1/2 way and was pretty comfortable at 80 mph (indicated).

    Got a few thumbs up from the cagers too…

    Anyone else out and about?[/QUOTE]

    I can’t believe I did not ride in February. ๐Ÿ˜ฎ 1st month I missed in two years. Oh well I guess I will have to start a new streek. ๐Ÿ˜Ž

    I gotten at least 1 ride in ever month for the last two years. Last month we (OSBMWR) went to Woodstock, CT for a ride. We prefer it to the bean. Not yet this month, buts its still early. This is usually the hardest month to sneak at least one ride in.
