2006 Finally Got the Upgrades

Well Grif.....with my warranty expiring in less than a month and my booster rocket like throttle becoming more irritating at slow meandering speeds, and the occasional box of rocks on start up, I finally got the air box, software and timing chain tensioner for my what used to be stock 06 GT. All this including a 12,000 mile service and a final drive fluid change. I get the bike back this Saturday so I hope I'm happy with the different feel.

But I didn't stop there. I also bought a set of black powder coat Motolights, a Stebel dual tone air horn and a BMW Supplemental LED Brake Light to install the following weekend. I know that others have posted information on installing these items but I intend to do them all at once so if anyone thinks it would be of interest, I can photograph and document the process and post the results later.

I made one other bonus purchase, I bought the BMW factory service CD for those future maintenance and repair needs. After three years this bike still makes me smile everytime I ride.

The picture is of the other thing that still makes me smile after 20 years. We did our 20th anniversary last month with a round trip ride from Chesapeake, VA up the Blue Ridge Pkwy starting in Asheville, NC to the end of Skyline Dr. at Front Royal and back. It was perfect.
