You can do that before breakfast.

Congrat's on the new (to you ) bike.

Keep a close eye on the speedo on your way home, these things
are deceptively smooth and you'll be in the "arrest me right now" zone
if you aren't careful.

Congratulations. That's just about a year after I got mine and I paid a little more. But then again, mine is Dakar yellow.

I wish you luck with the weather when you pick it up! I had to trailer mine because it was snowing the day we met in southern Minnesota. Roads were like ice so I could inspect but not ride. But it looked great and has *not* disappointed.

Congrats on the purchase...

Not sure if I know where you are picking up the bike. Your post states "Its in Milwalkiee, Im in ohio...a mear 350 miles away."
If you're in Milwaukee, WI that Saturday (18th) and want to buzz the city, hit the BMW dealership or get lunch (brewery tour or whatever) before hitting the road back to Toledo, OH let me know.
FYI, if you have to go through downtown Milwaukee the freeway is a major construction\rebuild project. Comming in from 94 West will be a piece of cake once you get through Gary\Chicago no major work until near downtown area.
